Synopsis:

Degrees of visual impairment - low vision, legal blindness, total blindness. Possibilities of compensation of severe visual impairment. Types of compensatory devices. Optical compensatory devices for near vision (hypercorrection, magnifiers, hyperocular lenses) and distance vision (telescopic systems - Galilei, Kepler). Electronic compensatory tools (camera magnifiers, digital magnifiers). System for prescription of special optical devices. System of funding with Health Insurance.
