Based on the information you have provided, we believe that Title I of the ADA permits the Board to require law enforcement agencies to test peace officers for the illegal use of anabolic steroids and to report such use to the Board.

HAYWARD -- The city's only emergency overnight shelter for adults opened Monday, with five people coming in from the cold, and organizers expected it to reach capacity Tuesday night. It was the death of a homeless man in December when temperatures dropped below freezing that spurred residents and several local churches to open the shelter. Joe White, 50, was found dead behind a Safeway store on Foothill Boulevard. "The fact that someone in our city would die of hypothermia because there was no way to get out of the cold just left people in a state of shock," said Betty DeForest, a board member at New Bridges Presbyterian Church, which took the lead in starting the shelter.

New research by Oxford University and Harvard Medical School, soon to be published in the Journal of Urban Health, suggests that 32.3 percent of the homeless population in the United States is obese — just slightly below the national average. The findings underscore what is referred to as "the hunger-obesity paradox," which refers to the phenomenon of people who suffer from hunger but — for reasons attributed to the high cost and relative inaccessibility of nutritious food and the low cost and relative ease of finding poor-quality food — are also obese.

Okun is expected to decide whether to bar the District from using recreation centers as shelters — as opposed to sending homeless families to motel rooms or apartments paid for by the city. Kim Katzenbarger, an attorney for the District, said that if the judge forced the city to place homeless families in motel rooms and apartments, funds would have to be taken from other parts of the budget.

... Rates of the infectious diseases HIV, Hepatitis C and tuberculosis among the world’s homeless people are many times higher than in the general population, according to a new systematic review of existing data published Online First in The Lancet Infectious Diseases. The study – which examined more than 40 research papers assessing the levels of HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis among homeless people from 1984 to 2012 – found that although there is considerable variation between countries and regions, homeless people have a much higher likelihood of having one of these potentially fatal and debilitating diseases. In the US, the prevalence of tuberculosis is at least 46 times greater in the homeless population than the general population, and the prevalence of hepatitis C viral infection is increased more than fourfold. In the UK, the prevalence of tuberculosis is at least 34 times greater in homeless people than in the general population, and the prevalence of hepatitis C viral infection is nearly 50 ...

While all homeless people are considered vulnerable, Johnson said, the "high mortality risk" category indicates a homeless person's "likelihood that they're going to die out there. 3 A survey of Petaluma's homeless population has found that a third of them are at "high mortality risk," putting last winter's spate of deaths in perspective and possibly suggesting that more are coming unless something is done.

*  NYC homeless boom puts shelters in lap of wealthy - New York - Tri-State Area - NorthJersey.com
... Community. News. NJ State News. Health. Rec & Travel. News Photos. NJ High School Sports Photos. Community Event Photos. Opinion: Community Newspapers. Faced with unprecedented overcrowding in New York City's homeless shelters, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has cut through the bureaucracy to open up new shelters across the city, pushing some into wealthy areas where residents fear their new neighbors will bring in crime and drugs. Bloomberg has opened 10 new homeless shelters in recent months in response to the escalating crisis. And that has created turmoil in neighborhoods like the Upper West Side, where a shelter opened in August among apartments occupied by the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. The parent-teacher association is working with local police to increase security on the street, which is a pedestrian corridor to Riverside Park's soccer fields and playgrounds. The question of where new homeless shelters ought to be placed throughout the city's five boroughs has always been a hot-button issue ...

(1/229) Patients' perception of visual impairment in glaucoma: a pilot study.

BACKGROUND/AIMS: There is a paucity of useful information on the level of visual disability suffered by glaucoma patients. The aims of this study were to determine and rank the frequency of self reported visual disability in daily tasks performed by glaucoma patients; to examine the interrelation between disabilities using factor analysis; to study the relation between perceived visual difficulty and a measure of the severity of visual field loss; to develop a glaucoma specific subgroup of questions; and examine the validity and reliability of this subgroup of questions. METHODS: 63 glaucoma patients completed a questionnaire containing 62 questions covering 10 broad aspects of daily life activities using a five point answer scale. Patients were classified into three groups as having mild, moderate, and severe field loss on the basis of the perimetric results. The relation between a measure of the severity of visual field loss and subjective visual disability in the three groups was examined. RESULTS: Using factor analysis, the most frequently reported problems were grouped into the following four categories: outdoor mobility, glare and lighting conditions and activities demanding functional peripheral vision, household tasks, and personal care. These four factors accounted for 72% of the variability in the patients' questionnaire responses. With increasing severity of binocular visual field loss there was an increase in the number of self reported visual problems. A loss of confidence in performing some routine daily tasks tended to precede self reported specific visual disabilities. The factor "glare and lighting and activities demanding functional peripheral vision" was found to have a significant relation with a measure of visual field loss and was used to create a glaucoma specific subset of questions. Cronbach's alpha showed a high degree of reliability and internal consistency (alpha =0.96) in this glaucoma specific subset of questions. Furthermore, the validity of this new subset of questions was shown to be significant (r=0.037, p<0.05) for the correlation between a measure of the severity of binocular visual field loss and the mean score of the variables used in the glaucoma specific subgroup of questions. CONCLUSIONS: Outcome measures and quality of life issues need to be addressed in glaucoma. This pilot study identified common problems encountered by patients which at the present time are not assessed in routine glaucoma care. It also identified a subgroup of questions that seems to be specific for glaucoma. Further research is required if a significant impact on the quality of life of glaucoma patients is to be achieved.  (+info)

(2/229) Chronic cortical visual impairment in children: aetiology, prognosis, and associated neurological deficits.

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate prevalence, aetiology, prognosis, and associated neurological and ophthalmological problems in children with cortical visual impairment (CVI). METHODS: The records of 7200 outpatients seen in the paediatric ophthalmology practice over the past 15 years were reviewed in order to compile data concerning CVI. In addition, the authors devised and applied a system for grading visual recovery in order to assess prognosis. RESULTS: CVI occurred in 2.4% of all patients examined. The four most common causes of CVI were perinatal hypoxia (22%), cerebral vascular accident (14%), meningitis (12%), and acquired hypoxia (10%). Most children with CVI had associated neurological abnormalities. The most common were seizures (53%), cerebral palsy (26%) hemiparesis (12%), and hypotonia (5%). Associated ophthalmological problems were esotropia (19%), exotropia (18%), optic nerve atrophy (16%), ocular motor apraxia (15%), nystagmus (11%), and retinal disease (3%). On average, CVI patients improved by two levels as measured by the authors' scale. CONCLUSION: The majority of children with CVI showed at least some recovery. In this group of children, CVI is often accompanied by additional ophthalmological problems and is nearly always associated with other, serious neurological abnormalities.  (+info)

(3/229) Ophthalmic and visual profile of guide dog owners in Scotland.

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Out of an estimated 90,000 visually impaired people in Scotland, 509 make use of a guide dog. Initial research in Northern Ireland suggests that the ophthalmic profile of guide dog owners (GDOs) is highly specific. The aim of this study was to compare the ophthalmic and visual characteristics of Scottish GDOs with other groups of visually impaired people. METHODS: A random sample of GDOs from central and northern Scotland (n = 82) underwent a detailed assessment of residual vision (distance and near acuity, visual fields, contrast, and glare sensitivity). Comparative data were obtained from two populations of visually impaired non-GDOs-one group attending hospital ophthalmic and low vision clinics (n = 50) the other social services rehabilitation clients (n = 35). All participants completed a questionnaire to elicit ophthalmic history, age, and registration details. RESULTS: GDOs were found to be significantly younger and more profoundly visually impaired than non-GDOs. The main causes of visual impairment were retinitis pigmentosa (23%), optic atrophy (15%), and retinopathy of prematurity (7%). Ninety nine per cent of GDOs were registered blind and had been visually impaired for an average of 39 years. Only 31% were totally blind. CONCLUSION: GDOs represent a unique minority of the visually impaired population. Epidemiological registration trends would suggest that the numbers of young profoundly visually impaired people are unlikely to increase relative to their elderly counterparts. This has implications on the future demand for guide dog ownership.  (+info)

(4/229) Visual acuity measurements in a national sample of British elderly people.

BACKGROUND: Despite the fact that visual function has an important role in the quality of life in later years, very few studies have measured visual acuity in population based nationwide samples of British elderly people. Such measurements were carried out in the context of the national diet and nutrition survey of people aged 65 years or over (NDNS). METHODS: NDNS participants, who were living in 80 different randomly selected postcode areas of mainland Britain, were visited at their home by a nurse who measured visual acuity at 3 metres, using the Glasgow acuity card (GAC) method. In addition, a brief questionnaire related to ocular health was administered. RESULTS: Visual acuity was measured in 1362 NDNS participants who were not classified as mentally impaired. Visual impairment (using the WHO low vision criteria) was measured in 195 (14.3%) subjects. Prevalence of visual impairment increased significantly with age (65-74 years 3.1%; 75-84 years 11.6%; 85+ years 35.5%, p<0.001 for trend). Impaired vision was more common in subjects living in a nursing home (odds ratio adjusted for age 2.59 (95% CI 2.23 to 2. 96)) and in women (odds ratio adjusted for age 1.55 (95% CI 1.21 to 1.89)). 132 (9.7%) subjects had previously undergone cataract surgery and another 157 (11.5%) had been told that they currently had cataract. Vision improved 0.2 log units or more (at least one Snellen line) with the aid of a pinhole occluder in 289 subjects (21. 2%). CONCLUSION: Results of this nationwide, community based study confirm that problems with poor distance visual acuity exist in a substantial part of the elderly community, particularly in women and people living in nursing homes.  (+info)

(5/229) Helping blind and partially sighted people to read: the effectiveness of low vision aids.

AIMS: To substantiate the claim that low vision aids reduce the degree of disability associated with visual impairment. METHODS: An observational study of vision, ocular pathology, age, sex, and reading ability in new referrals to a low vision clinic. Reading ability was assessed both with the patients' own spectacles and with an appropriate low vision aid. RESULTS: The reading performance and biographical characteristics of new referrals to a low vision clinic were recorded. Data were collected for 168 people over a 6 month period. Upon arrival at the clinic the mean functional visual acuity equated to 6/36 and 77% of patients were unable to read newsprint (N8). After a low vision assessment and provision of a suitable low vision aid 88% of new patients were able to read N8 or smaller text. CONCLUSIONS: The degree of visual impairment observed in new referrals to a low vision clinic is sufficient to prevent the majority from performing many daily tasks. Low vision aids are an effective means of providing visual rehabilitation, helping almost nine out of 10 patients with impaired vision to read.  (+info)

(6/229) The association of multiple visual impairments with self-reported visual disability: SEE project.

PURPOSE: This report examines the relationship between psychophysical measures of visual impairment and self-reported difficulty with everyday visual tasks in a population-based sample of individuals 65 years of age and older. METHODS: Community-dwelling residents (n = 2520) of Salisbury, MD, between the ages of 65 and 84 were recruited for the study. Visual acuity under normal and low luminance, contrast and glare sensitivity, stereoacuity, and visual fields were measured. Subjective physical disability was assessed with the Activities of Daily Vision Scale (ADVS). RESULTS: In multiple regression analyses adjusted for demographic factors, cognitive status, depression, and number of comorbid medical conditions, each of the vision tests except low luminance acuity was independently associated with lower ADVS scores. The analyses indicate that a factor of 2 reduction in visual acuity or contrast sensitivity, comparable with that observed in mild to moderate lens opacity, was associated with a three- to fivefold odds of reporting difficulty with daily tasks. Although age alone was a significant risk factor for disability, it was not associated with overall ADVS score, once visual impairment and other chronic medical conditions were taken into account. CONCLUSIONS: Visual acuity, contrast and glare sensitivity, stereoacuity, and visual fields are significant independent risk factors for self-reported visual disability in an older population. Visual impairment defined by acuity alone is not the only dimension of the association with subjective disability. Additional vision measures are required to understand the impact of vision loss on everyday life.  (+info)

(7/229) Assessment of the impact of vision impairment.

PURPOSE: To describe the psychometric characteristics of the Impact of Vision Impairment (IVI) Profile and evaluate its validity and reliability over time and between different forms of administration. METHODS: The IVI is a 32-item questionnaire developed to measure the impact of vision impairment on restriction of participation in daily activities in five domains of functioning. Each item is rated on a six-level scale from "no difficulty" to "can't do because of vision." The IVI was administered by trained interviewers to 115 people with impaired vision (visual acuity less than 6/12 or visual field deficit) who attended the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, a vision rehabilitation agency, or a self-help group for people with impaired vision. Data were also collected on demographic characteristics of participants, cause of vision impairment, and distance and near vision. General health status was assessed with the Short Form-12 (SF-12) of the Physical and Mental Health Summary Scales. A subset of participants completed the IVI twice, either 1 to 2 weeks apart or by different forms of administration (different interviewers or self). RESULTS: Internal consistency of total and domain average IVI scores was high (alpha = 0.80-0.96) and sequential elimination of items did not affect consistency. Total and domain average IVI scores correlated moderately with both near and distance vision (r = 0.21-0.31) but did not correlate with physical or general health or comorbidity. Total and domain average IVI scores correlated most closely with global measures of restriction of participation (r = 0.44-0.82). Principal-components analysis confirmed that all IVI items contribute to one underlying theme and tended to confirm two of the five domains: emotional reaction to vision loss and mobility. The first three components explained 43%, 8%, and 6% of the variation in the data. Guttman split-half reliability coefficients between different forms of administration and over time ranged from 0.73 to 0.94 for domain and total IVI scores. Mean absolute difference for domain and total scores between administrations was less than 1 step for all domains and the total score. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides support that the IVI has sufficient internal and construct validity to measure the effect of vision impairment on restriction of participation in daily activities. The IVI demonstrates acceptable reliability over a short period and yields consistent results between interviewers. The IVI can also be self-administered with assurance that the results will be comparable to those that would have been obtained by a trained interviewer. Therefore, the psychometric characteristics of the IVI support its use in assessment of the vision rehabilitation needs of people with impaired vision. Its stability over time indicates that it has potential to evaluate outcomes of intervention.  (+info)

(8/229) Low vision services for vision rehabilitation in the United Kingdom.

AIM: Little is known about the distribution and methods of delivery of low vision services across the United Kingdom. The purpose of this study was to determine the type and location of low vision services within the UK. METHODS: Survey by means of a 29 point postal questionnaire, followed when necessary by a five point telephone questionnaire. All known potential providers of low vision services (n = 2539) including hospitals (n = 277), optician/optometry practices (n = 1683), social services (n = 177), voluntary groups (n = 190), specialist teachers (n = 205), and universities (n = 6) were surveyed. For each service provider, the type, magnitude, and geographical location were determined. The distribution of services across the United Kingdom and the ratio of providers to population density of people with a visual impairment were mapped using the Geographic Information System (GIS). RESULTS: Data were obtained on 1945 (77%) service providers: 1679 (66%) responded to the postal questionnaire and 266 (11%) to the telephone questionnaire. Of all respondents, 59% (n = 1135) offer some form of help to people with a visual disability, of which 26% (n = 497) only sell magnifiers and 33% (n = 638) provide low vision services. It is estimated that in total just under 155,000 low vision consultations are offered annually, the bulk of which are provided by hospital eye departments. The distribution was geographically uneven and there appears to be scarcity in some areas. CONCLUSION: When compared to the probable number of people with a visual impairment in the UK there are apparent inadequacies in service provision in terms of distribution, magnitude, and coordination. The results highlight a need to review current services.  (+info)

I think part of the definition is whether or not your problem can be corrected with lenses.  I have a very severe astigmatism as well as being extremely near-sighted.   With out my glasses, everything six inches and beyond is blurred and my depth perception is non-existent.  I can move around my house, for the most part, but outside would be impossible.  My vision is corrected to 20/25 with eyeglasses and 20/30 with contacts.


How bad do your eyes have to be to be considered 'Visually Impaired'?


I am looking for scholarship information online, and a lot of applications have Visually Impaired under the disability column.
I was wondering, what are the numbers that determine if you are visually impaired?

My eye sight is bad enough that I have a restriction on my license, and I have to wear glasses or contacts all of the time, but does that qualify me for a visual impairment?
----------

Visually impaired refers to your vision with glasses, not your vision without glasses.

A visually impaired person sees poorly, even with glasses on.


Can the visually impaired see a 3D movie well?


My daughter is visually impaired and can see a regular movie well enough but we don't know if she will be able to see a 3-D movie correctly.  She does not have binocular vision (cannot see through both eyes at the same time).  Anyone know how she will perceive a movie with 3-D glasses on?
----------

If she does not have stereo vision, she cannot determine depth, which is what makes a 3-D movie 3-D.
I do not have stereo vision, so it just looks like a "normal" movie to me. It is probably the same for your daughter.


When providing written communication to a visually impaired client, how big should font be?


For Nurse-Client communication:

When providing written communication to a visually impaired client, it is necessary to use a font (typeface) that is at least _________________ points or greater.

Is there any support groups for the visually impaired or blind in the Pensacola area?


I am visually impaired and 23 years old. I just want to talk to people who can understand what I am going through. So if anyone knows any support groups for the blind or visually impaired in Pensacola I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you!
----------

I would contact your ophthamologist or The Lions Club, one of them should be able to direct you to a support groups to meet your needs.  My grampa used to volunteer with the Lions in the Lillian/ Elberta, AL area doing that kind of thing so it sound be the same in Pensacola.  However, if neither of those turn up anything contact a school for the deaf and blind they will usually have support groups affliated with them.


Everyone has eyes and can see except for the visually impaired, but can you really see?

I can see what my heart allows me to see.I have seen love ,pain joy,happiness,sadness,ill health,hate,jealousy and so much more in peoples eyes alone without a word being spoken.The eye's are the window to the soul,you just have to know how to look into them and be willing to accept what you see.Most people don't believe ,so they'll never be able to read the eyes of someones life/soul.
