Efficient Assessment of Contrast Sensitivity in Clinical Populations

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker information: Peter Bex, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Abstract: Letter acuity, the predominant clinical assessment of vision, is relatively insensitive to many eye diseases. While the contrast sensitivity function (CSF) has demonstrated the potential to monitor the slow progress of many blinding eye diseases, current CSF Tests lack the reliability or ease-of-use to capture subtle or gradual changes in vision. To improve the current state of clinical vision testing, we have developed and validated a computerized adaptive test and implemented it on a commercial tablet device (iPad) that provides an efficient and easy-to-use vision assessment.
