Low vision, quality of life and independence: A review of the evidence on aids and technology
In early 2016, MDFA commissioned The George Institute for Global Health to undertake desk research to elevate MDFA’s baseline of data and client case studies. The result was ‘Low Vision, quality of life and independence: A review of the evidence on aids and technologies by Macular Disease Foundation Australia produced in collaboration with The George Institute for Global Health.
The report highlights the evidence base supporting the benefits of aids and technologies for those with vision loss and blindness in order to connect and engage with the world, maintain independence and enhance quality of life. The report was released in January 2017 and formed the basis of MDFA advocacy efforts on affordable access to low vision aids and technologies.
