Functional Vision Assessment (FVA)

A Functional Vision Assessment (FVA) can be a very useful tool to find out more information on how someone uses their vision. SeeAbility’s FVA tool is intended to be used by supporters of people with learning disabilities who know that person well, such as family carers and support staff. This FVA is an observational tool that can be used to recognise how a person with learning disabilities might be using their sight. It can give an indication of what a person might not see, or have difficulty seeing. An FVA can be very useful before someone attends an eye test or eye clinic appointment to identify problems that may or may not be treatable.
