Disability Support Services
Visual Impairments/ Blindness
Students requesting accommodations on the basis of low vision or blindness must provide documentation consisting of:
- An ocular assessment or evaluation from an ophthalmologist.
- A low-vision evaluation of residual visual function, when appropriate.
- Suggestions as to how the disabling condition(s) may be accommodated.*
- All reports must be in narrative form, typed, and signed by the physician. Chart or clinic notes are not acceptable as documentation.
*A history of accommodations does not in itself warrant the provision of similar accommodations at UNA. The final determination of eligibility for services rests with the University of North Alabama.
