The human and financial costs associated with sight loss can be reduced by appropriate low vision rehabilitation strategies. Low vision rehabilitation is an increasing area of work for the orthoptist in Australia. The aim of this project is to establish the range of rehabilitation services being provided by orthoptists in low vision centres in Australia and in particular the rehabilitation technique of eccentric viewing. Information is also sought internationally in relation to the role of the orthoptist in low vision. Data are collected by survey and analysed for trends for comparison with previous studies. Orthoptists working at low vision centres are surveyed to gather information.
