Low vision services in Australia

Lovie-Kitchin, Jan E. (1990) Low vision services in Australia. Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, 84, pp. 298-304.


A survey of the low vision clinics in Australia was conducted to allow comparison of methods of service provision among clinics. This paper reports the findings with respect to the patient characteristics and the planning, organization, personnel, and services provided by low vision clinics in Australia. The major change that has occurred in recent years is services in country regions through satellite clinics or private optometric practices. Recommendations for improvements are given.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
