Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This descriptive case study compares preparatory, occupation-based, and combined-intervention approaches for the compensatory treatment of visual field deficits as a feasibility study. Using the AMPS to examine occupational performance, it appears the combined training was most effective for visual compensation of everyday IADLs. However, results of eye tracking with a driving simulator offers contrasting evidence for safety when attempting to compensate for visual deficits with scanning.
