About Vision 2023
ThemeOur theme for Vision 2023 is "Low Vision Rehabilitation Across the Life Span." Although the majority of visually impaired people are seniors, there are, of course, visually impaired people of all ages. Those who are born with low vision or lose vision in early life will have many more years to live with visual impairment and will benefit from early intervention. Presentations will be identified to indicate the age of patients the session is most intended to address: Infants/Toddlers, Youth, Adult, Senior, and General.
About the International Society of Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation (ISLRR)Research into vision impairment is becoming increasingly critical because of the predominance of information exchange which requires vision, such as books, journals, video, and computer monitors. In addition, this kind of research and development is important because of the significance of vision in such practical tasks as driving. A society such as the ISLRR meets a long felt need for the exchange of knowledge and information among people working in the field of LOW VISION research.
ISLRR’s goals are “to stimulate scientific research in the field of low vision and in the field of rehabilitation of people with low vision”, and “to promote the exchange of information in these fields”. To achieve these goals, they created the international “Vision” Conferences, which have been held every three years since 1996.
