I work in a skilled nursing facility and generally by the time we receive a resident with low vision,e.g. macular degeneration, they already have dementia. At this point, it has been difficult teaching them strategies for their low vision because the dementia interferes remembering what they were taught. I'm interested in both of these fields and wonder what particular research is out there for this population.

Judy,

Thanks for your comment. I'm not aware of any research in this area. Perhaps one of our readers has seen something?

Hi. Wow...I think I might be getting closer to my search of what is happening with my mom. My mom has been loosing her eyesight for over 10 years now. She went to doctor in the beginning , but one day the doctor said ( she claims..no one was in room ) nothing can be done for her. That was the last day she ever went to doctor. Now last year we think she may have had a stroke...her memory of names..or simple things is on tip of her tounge, but she can't get right word out...She will NOT go to doctor !!!!!!!!!!!!!! My family has come to grips (not really) with that fact. We just want to know what is to come....how bad...how slowly will this get worse
