Ambrose-Zaken Defines Mobility Visual Impairment

In a recent journal of visual impairment & Blindness publication, Ambrose-Zaken's research study included the term mobility visual impairment

VISUAL IMPAIRMENT Twelve participants had optic nerve hypoplasia septo optic dysplasia (35.3%), 11 had cortical visual impairment (CVI; 29.4%). Three participants had retinopathy of prematurity. Two participants each presented with Norrie’s disease, microphthalmia with retina coloboma, Leber Congenital Amaurosis, and traumatic brain injury. The cause of one participant’s congenital blindness was listed as unknown. Seventeen of the participants were blind (i.e., no light perception). Eighteen had low vision: they responded to visual stimuli, but the result of the severity of their visual impairment meant they were unable to visually avoid collisions, or were mobility visually impaired.
