In Episode 5 we did a did a VROOM and OMO assessment with Erica Tandori, who scored 29/50 for her functional vision and 39/50 for her functional mobility. Erica chooses not to use a mobility aid most of the time, relying on her peripheral vision and fabulous mental mapping skills to maintain her orientation and her safety on familiar routes like the public transport trip to work. But Erica likes to take an arm when walking in less familiar places. This frees up her vision to look around and enjoy what she sees. The co-rating conversation with Erica has raised questions about comparisons and precision in using the VROOM and OMO tools, and some varied opinions about the mobility aids we might recommend for someone with mid-range low vision.
