3. Screening for Deficits in Visual Field in Older Adults

Visual field deficits are commonly seen in clients with age-related eye disease and brain injury from stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neurological diseases. The lecture describes how to administer the assessments and interpret the results. This information will enable the OT practitioner to select the most appropriate assessment to screen for these conditions in their older adult clients.
