Effective reading courses for elderly with macular degeneration

Short description:

Macular degeneration (MD) is the most common cause of visual impairment among older adults in Western Europe. It severely affects reading performance. We considered several training programs that aim to improve peripheral reading. There was no strong support in favor of one particular training method for rehabilitation of reading in macular degeneration, but there is evidence that older individuals with macular degeneration can be trained to improve reading performance.
