Vision rehabilitation has been ignored in musculoskeletal rehabilitation medicine till recent years. Veterans who had multiple physical deficiencies, were transferred to TAF Rehabilitation Center from GMMA.Besides that, some of the veterans had visual impairment. We wrote our experiences with a patient who had bilateral transfemoral amputations, visual and hearing impairment. Although Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Specialists declare their fields with musculoskletal and nerve disorders, they might find themselves dealing with visual, hearing and cognitive rehabilitation.
