Featuring photos of special lighting and other aids and insight from the author's own personal experience with low vision, this oversized handbook is ideally formatted for readers with vision loss by employing the use of large print on glare-resistant paper. Offering reassurance, hope, and personal insight, this revised edition is filled with descriptions of adaptive strategies and assistive technologies.
