Abstract

This study modified the educational content of an evidence-based fall prevention intervention to make it visually accessible for older adults with low vision. We piloted the intervention on 9 older adults receiving low vision rehabilitation services. Following the intervention, participants demonstrated increased comprehension of the content, perceived a greater understanding of fall prevention strategies, and reported high satisfaction with the intervention's accessibility. Individuals with low vision may have difficulty reading and comprehending printed educational materials. Modifying print materials to improve readability may result in greater understanding of the educational content.
