 Visual Impairment and Blindness


A student is eligible for vision services if the impairment of vision interferes in access to a regular school program regardless of the acuity measurements.  Students with a visual impairment are those whose vision interferes with functioning in or, for preschool-age children, in learning tasks. Visual impairments may result from congenital defects, eye diseases, or injuries to the eye. Visual impairment is determined based on a current examination by an ophthalmologist or optometrist.
