How to best help people with low vision?

The Low Vision Symposium provides the venue to link the latest scientific discoveries in low vision research to innovative interventional procedures for the management of low vision. Starting from the assessment of the behavioural consequences of low vision, the symposium will highlight the neuropsychological aspects affected by low vision, the modifications in the brain dynamics brought by low vision, up to the current and exploratory clinical protocols to treat the different deficits associated with low vision. Talks will be given in English. The symposium ends with the attribution of a Young Investigator Award to the best student presentations in human vision neuroscience, neuro-ophthalmology, or any related discipline.
