    Members of the National Institute of Building Sciences’ Low Vision Design Committee, which exercises a multidisciplinary approach to empower those with low vision in their quest to lead independent and fulfilled lives, will reprise their presentation from the 2017 and 2018 Environments for Aging Expo & Conference.  The team will share basic principles and some evidence-based guidance that designers can employ as they integrate building, interior, and lighting systems into supportive environments for the 17 million Americans who live within the spectrum of low vision.

    Learning Objectives

    • Examine rules and tools to design environments for those with low vision.
    • Compare new proposed standards with general design codes and standards.
    • Learn about lighting design measurements and considerations to help design healthy visual environments.
    • Share and contribute knowledge toward the development of a national standard for low vision.
