Visual Impairment

Blindness and visual impairment may limit the ability to perform daily activities and can affect the quality of life. Ocular rehabilitation allows people to fully profit from life to be active, and productive in today’s civilization. Most conditions causing blindness and visual impairment can be prevented or readily treated with identified and cost-effective modalities of treatment.

Academic Network


IVORC has been founded to consider a dedicated group of eye-care professionals with a strong vision to support the cutting-edge education and research in eye-care programs in either basic or clinical fields. With its unique focus on international collaboration, IVORC brings together experts from around the world in all areas of vision science to enhance ophthalmic education and research mainly by publishing scholarly papers.

This is accomplished through active international programs in which researchers work with academic networks. Furthermore, our focus has been to support studies from developing countries, especially multi-central or multinational studies, with attention to scientific quality. Quality control in research and publication has always been one of the pivots of our academic structure.
