Eccentric Viewing Conference - Macular Disease Society

  • 15 March 2012
  • Aston


This event will highlight why training in Eccentric Viewing (EV) and Steady Eye (SE) should be considered for individuals with central vision loss as a component part of good holistic low vision and rehabilitation services.

For people affected by macular disease these techniques can improve visual function and quality of life; complementing and enhancing the impact of other low vision and rehabilitation interventions.

The latest research and real life stories will be presented. The Society aims to bring together eyecare and social care professionals, commissioners and those involved with managing, training or representing professionals from across health and social care.

There will be an opportunity to discuss the effective use of clinical measures and social outcomes used when evaluating the impact of EV & SE; and how to further build the evidence base and drive service delivery improvements.
