Visual Impairment Care Plan



Ref: CP0199

Visual Impairment Care Plan

If a person is visually impaired, they will have some loss of vision or some distortion to their vision. Depending on the severity of sight loss or the degree of distortion, the conditions are usually referred to as partial sightedness or blindness.

Visual impairment, which can’t be treated can be difficult to come to terms with. Some people go through a process similar to bereavement, where they experience a range of emotions including shock, anger, and denial, before eventually coming to accept their condition.

Causes of visual impairment include, cataracts where a cloudy area forms in the lens of the eye, glaucoma where fluid in the eye cannot drain properly and there is a build up of pressure which results in damage to the optic nerve, age related macular degeneration where the vision gradually deteriorates with age, and diabetic retinopathy where the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina become damaged.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
