Dr. Jackson has expertise in vision rehabilitation (VR) and leads the development of a new model of comprehensivevision rehabilitation. This model addresses five domains of rehabilitation interventions: reading rehabilitation, activities of daily living, patient safety, continued participation in events despite vision loss, and patient psychosocial well-being. It is the framework for the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) guidelines for VR. She is actively involved in research addressing contrast sensitivity, fundus-related perimetry and visual hallucinations in patients with vision loss. Her research continues to address outcomes of rehabilitation with the overall goal that patients with vision loss receive effective rehabilitation interventions.
