Overview of CVI: Definition and considerations around assessment and habilitation
Dr. Barry Kran, OD, FAAO,is the Optometric Director of the New England College of Optometry (NECO).
Dr. Kran’s current research interests involve developing appropriate diagnostic vision tests for individuals with disabilities with normative data surrounding these tests, understanding and developing a database of the vision-related outcomes of low incidence conditions, and breaking the barriers to eye care that individuals with disabilities encounter. Currently, he is exploring a novel contrast sensitivity test which aims to be useful for individuals with reduced cognitive function and/or expressive communication skills. Dr. Kran is also investigating the various aspects surrounding the diagnosis of individuals with cortical visual impairment, the leading cause of pediatric blindness.
During this talk Dr. Barry Kran will offer an overview of CVI – starting from its definition and going on to explore considerations around assessment and habilitation.
