Clinicians can learn about the effects of severe vision loss from the Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) study guide, Visual Impairment and Blindness (1.24 MB, PDF).
Vision loss can be service-related, caused by traumatic injury during combat. It also is a growing issue for aging Veterans.
The study guide is useful for VA and non-VA health care providers caring for Veteran patients. Veterans and the public also may be interested in the guide to learn more about symptoms and treatment.
