Rodney L. Immerman, B.A., B.S., O.D., F.A.A.O.

I am a consultant to 9 private practices in Massachusetts.  I have practice exclusively low vision since 1982.  I routinely see patients with diagnoses of age related macular degeneration, Stargardt's Disease, macular holes, drug induced toxicity reactions, uveitis, giant tears, diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity, retinitis pigmentosa and high myopia.  I have spent the last 26 years designing low vision devices for reading, distance, occupational and recreational tasks and specifically, low vision devices for computer use and referral to appropriate specialists in adaptive technologies.

I have become a certified visual acuity examiner and refractionist for six National Eye Institute funded multi-center collaborative clinical trials: Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy, Children's Hospital Medical Center Diabetic Retinopathy, Branch Vein Occlusion, Central Vein Occlusion, Silicone Oil and Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Studies.  Each study has specific protocol requirements.

I assist in the training of retina ophthalmology fellows in clinical low vision practice and theory.

I have lectured to in-service training groups of ophthalmic medical personal and to low vision support groups.

I am a Fellow, American Academy of Optometry

Recipient: Dr. William Feinbloom Low Vision Award-May 1982- presented to the most distinguished low vision clinician in the graduating class.
