There is a pressing need for scientific low-vision research because the effects of vision loss are not well understood or documented and therapeutic and rehabilitative techniques are in their infancy. The Envision Research Institute is ideally suited to undertake such research because Envision has a large and diverse blind/low-vision clientele, outstanding clinical expertise, excellent ties to researchers at other institutions, and an institutional environment highly supportive of research.
