New from the AMA, a comprehensive guide on vision and visual impairment that can be used to determine if visual impairment or disability exists, the severity of the diagnosis, and how this translates into whether a person is able to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) and/or possibly related occupational duties. AMA Guides' to the Evaluation of Ophthalmic Impairment and Disability provides basic background information for those untrained in ophthalmology, but will also be useful to ophthalmologists and optometrists who need to assess functional vision, impairments, and ADLs. This resource is intended for physicians who handle eye injuries, from primary care physicians to ophthalmologists to impairment evaluators. Content is based on the latest available science and best practices in ophthalmology impairment and disability. A companion to the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, Sixth Edition, this unique publication applies both terminology from, and an analytical framework based on, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF).
Physicians will be able to apply the AMA Guides Sixth principles to accurately measure and assess functional aspects of visual IMEs.
