Abstract: Some measurable degree of vision loss is an inevitable consequence of aging and many diseases that cause greater levels of vision loss become more prevalent as people get older.

In order to respond to this challenge, UD designers must understand the common functional consequences of vision loss in the elderly (Haegerstrom-Portnoy, 2005).
