People from a variety of disciplines work in the field of research and development for rehabilitation of people with vision impairment. This includes ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists, physicists, psychologists, therapists, physicians, and clinical healthcare professionals, among others.

Research into vision impairment is becoming increasingly important because of the predominance information exchange which require vision, such as books, journals, video, and computer monitors. In addition, this kind of research and development is important because of the importance of vision in such practical tasks as driving.
