Visual Impairments/ Blindness

Students requesting accommodations on the basis of low vision or blindness must provide documentation consisting of:

  1. An ocular assessment or evaluation from an ophthalmologist.
  2. A low-vision evaluation of residual visual function, when appropriate.
  3. Suggestions as to how the disabling condition(s) may be accommodated.*
  4. 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.
