What is CVI?


Access to Independence

Many think of independence with vision impairments in terms of independent mobility, which is of course a part. For us, independence encompasses everything a person is able, or unable to do for themselves. This will include things like dressing and eating, but extends to look at where people with CVI are excluded, for example from family holidays, or social gatherings and children's parties.

In the subsections we showcase real examples of successful strategies people have adopted to help increase the independence of the person with CVI. We consider with each example:

  • what the challenges were
  • how the particular area was made perceivable and meaningful
  • the successful approach that was adopted.

CVI Scotland aims to bring together the experiences of the many people affected by CVI so that we can learn from one another.
