  • After this course, participants will be able to identify at least one visual assessment method.

  • After this course, participants will be able to identify at least one visual rehabilitation method.

0-15 Minutes    Background, review of learning outcomes
15-30 Minutes    Visual Impairment
30-60 Minutes    Common conditions seen in clinical practice
60-75 Minutes    Visual assessment
