These innovative simulation glasses create the realities of six common age-related visual impairments: cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinopathy, hemianopsia, and detached retina. They are designed to be easily worn over glasses that students may already wear. While students are viewing the world through the simulation glasses, they can attempt common activities of daily living: filling out forms, reading the newspaper, mixing cooking ingredients, etc. Discussion of coping strategies to use with older adults who have visual impairments is encouraged following the simulation experience. Set of 6 pairs of glasses.
