Abstract: This master's thesis examines the question of how to maximize the potential vision of individuals with a visual impairment, by modifying their environment. Objectives were to document the time taken to complete daily tasks for individuals with a loss of peripheral vision (retinitis pigmentosa/RP) and with a loss of the central field of vision (macular degeneration/MD) by colouring the environment and, by providing a black and white environment. Two groups (15 RP and 15 MD) carried out nine everyday tasks in three environments (not adapted; black and white; coloured). Both groups took significantly longer to carry out these tasks, compared to the sighted, irrespective of the environment. However, the participants with RP were faster in the coloured environment compared to the other two environments. These results may allow the clinicians to better justify their choice of presentation environment when adapting activities for their clients.
