Visual Field Function (2A)

Visual field impairment occurs when there are gaps or a narrowing of the visual field.
Visual field impairment can be peripheral vision loss, a reduced range of vision, or blind spots in the field of vision. It impacts a student's ability to accurately process visual information.
