NEI-funded research is aimed at objectively evaluating what people living with low vision due to cerebral (cortical) visual impairment (CVI) can and cannot see, especially in situations where a significant intellectual disability interferes with the ability to communicate or read an eye chart.
As a part of our “Unstoppable” series, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Kathleen Friel. Dr. Friel was born with cerebral palsy (CP), a neurological disability that affects her speech, walking, and fine motor skills. As she grew up, Kathleen’s interest in science blossomed.
