Vision Testing and Retinal Imaging in Clinical Trials: What Patients Can Expect
Because measuring changes is not always easy, people in clinical trials often undergo a number of different tests over one or several years. It can be challenging for the patient, but is necessary to determine if a treatment is working.
Coping with a Vision Loss Diagnosis
Being diagnosed with an eye condition that causes partial or complete vision loss is a highly emotional experience. Vision loss may come unexpectedly and be frightening. Newly-diagnosed patients frequently struggle with grief and depression, similar to losing a loved one. When managed using healthy coping methods and strategies, this is a natural and normal response to vision loss.
VISIONS 2022, the national conference of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, is a one-of-a-kind event in which individuals who are visually impaired, and their families, have the opportunity to hear about exciting advancements in blindness research.
