Design Guidelines for the Visual Environment

The Institute's Low Vision Design Committee (LVDC) has issued this latest version of Design Guidelines for the Visual Environment after a second round of public review and comment. Based on this review, the committee voted to update the Guidelines to create the document you see here. This document is the first of its kind in the United States to offer assistance to design professionals and others in accommodating a growing segment of the population who live with the spectrum of vision disorders contributing to Low Vision. Through the process of two public reviews, the committee was able to refine the Guidelines before its official public release for use by designers. Please submit questions or comments via e-mail to staff director Stephanie Stubbs, sstubbs@nibs.org
