    Low-vision research has played an important role in bringing topics such as reading and driving under scrutiny in vision science. My theme in this article is to propose that we embed low-vision research more explicitly in the real world where our findings can have a direct impact on the lives of people with low vision.   Psychophysics of Reading in Normal and Low Vision: Publisher: Taylor and Francis: Pages: Number of pages: ISBN (Electronic) ISBN (Print) State: Published - Oct 11 Externally published: Yes.

Defining Low Vision • A person with low vision is one who – has impairment of visual functioning even after treatment and/or standard refractive correction, and – has a visual acuity of less than 6/18 to light perception, or a visual field of less than 10 degree from the point of fixation, but who – uses, or is potentially able to use.

A new test, MNREAD reading acuity, appears to offer potential. The range of print sizes accommodate the large variation in acuities found in normal and low vision ( to LogMAR in Log MAR steps).
