Purpose: LOVIT II was a single masked RCT to compare the effectiveness of LV rehabilitation (provision of LV devices, 1-3 therapy sessions with assigned homework) and basic LV (provision of LV devices with minimal instruction in their use) in veterans with macular diseases and BVA of 20/50 to 20/200. After the 4-month follow-up, basic LV participants were provided usual-care LV therapy. This study compares the changes in visual ability in both treatment groups from baseline to 12-month follow-up for 323 subjects enrolled in LOVIT II.
