Perceptual learning has been shown to be effective in improving visual functions in the normal visual system, for adults who are well past their critical period for visual development. In this talk, I will briefly summarise findings from several studies that examined the feasibility of applying perceptual learning to improve letter recognition performance and reading speed in the normal periphery, with the ultimate goal of testing the feasibility of using perceptual learning to improve reading speed for people with bilateral central vision loss that is acquired later in life, such as people with macular degeneration.
