Case reports for three patients with low vision due to different ocular diseases are presented. In each case, a different rehabilitation professional was the main provider of the low vision care needed to meet the patient’s goals. However, in all cases the patients benefited from the services of a range of professionals, agencies or groups for visually impaired people. The importance of defining patients’ specific goals, referral to multi-disciplinary low vision services and regular reviews of vision and visual tasks is highlighted.

Impact and interest:

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
