Despite many breakthrough treatments for eye disorders, vision loss restricts mobility, productivity, independence, and quality of life in millions of patients. By 2020, an estimated 53 million Americans over the age of 65 will have some form of visual impairment. Researchers in the Mobility Enhancement and Vision Rehabilitation Center of Excellence aim to develop and implement new tools and technologies that can help visually impaired patients make the best use of their remaining eyesight. Researchers are developing novel training programs innovative technologies to enhance vision and sensorimotor function—and thus quality of life—in people with various forms of vision loss, including strabismus, amblyopia, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and hemianopia.
