Would a 55 years old female patient suffering from severely impaired vision after a recent car accident be referred to a psychologist? Justify your answer. Yes, she would be referred to a psychologist. Severely impaired vision is a serious condition with bio-psycho-social impacts on the patient. We need to consider the impact of both the car accident and its consequences on visual acuity on the patient’s prior lifestyle and occupation. All other pre-existing psychological issues have to be considered as well. They could aggravate the negative psychological effects and increase the levels of anxiety, stress, leading to depression. The patient will need help to overcome the acute stress induced by the car accident and to reach the stage of acceptance. Therefore the psychologist may contribute importantly to identify the progress and to evaluate the strategies and therapeutic schemes. Copyright © 2013 by Republic Polytechnic, Singapore 2
