Necessity is the mother of invention. This line certainly holds true when measuring students’ visual acuity and visual field in informal settings such as the school hallway or the mobile low vision clinic. Come hear Dr. Jenny Wood, low vision specialist with Lumino Vision, describe her innovative strategies and tips in completing the eye exam for a range of students, including birth-three. Additional topics include developing and maximizing visual abilities and prescribing principles for optical devices including eyeglasses.

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
