  • CONCLUSIONS: In static equilibrium, patients with poor peripheral vision have better quality somatosensory compensation, but they have a tendency to lean forward, which increases the risk of falling forward. For the three groups, the tests showed that the subjects are vision-dependent, which implies that somatosensory compensation could be developed to limit this dependency. In dynamic equilibrium, the subjects in the disease groups perform significantly worse than the controls. All the visually impaired have a more developed somatosensory mechanism than the controls. The subjects in the first and third groups have the same postural profile, they are vision-dependent. Subjects in the second group have an instability and change in their postural strategy, increasing the risk of falling. Visual acuity has a lesser impact on the risk of falling than the visual field.Comparing postural responses in these different situations, it appears that postural profiles are modified in the case of visual disability, although the postural profile of the group with central visual loss is similar to that of the controls. Retinal involvement, whether central or peripheral, leads to postural imbalance that may result in falls in certain cases. To limit the prevalence of these falls, it would be interesting to address visually impaired patients by examination and postural rehabilitation to decrease the effects of this visual impairment.
