The contrast sensitivity test using Pelli Robson Contrast Sensitivity Chart is "Probably the most widely used device to test contrast sensitivity .... like a standard Snellen visual acuity chart, the Pelli Robson chart consists of horizontal lines of capital letters. But instead of the letters getting smaller on each successive line, it is the contrast of the letters that decreases with each line." #contrastsensitivitytest #testingcontrastsensitivity #contrastsensitivitychart E-book, Exam, Lettering, E-book Readers, Chart, Visual, Contrast

What is OCT Scanning? (Optical Coherence Tomography)
Optical coherence tomography "permits to define the location and nature of the changes in the retina and adjacent structures and objectively evaluates the thickness of the retina and surrounding structures. These capabilities allow detection of newly emerging fluid and/or intraretinal or subretinal tissue and tissue below the retinal pigment epithelium." #maculardegeneration #layersoftheretina #opticalcoherencetomography Nature, Technology, Optical, Detection, Fluid

"While some patients might have good visual acuity on an eye exam that uses the widely known Snellen chart, they report reduced reading ability in their daily lives. Researchers ...evaluated 150 eyes of 85 patients in the context of the Directional Spread of Geographic Atrophy study, with Fleckenstein as principal investigator. Their work confirmed reading ability and reading speed are important functional tests that can reflect disease progression." #maculardegenerationprogression Reading, Scientist, Measurements, Abilities, Eye Center, The University Of Utah, University Of Utah

My Retina Tracker Program (MRT) is a volunteer registry for those who have been diagnosed with an inherited retinal degeneration (IRD). The program provides testing for 266 retinal disease genes. Patients must have a clinical diagnosis of one of the 20 inherited retinal diseases on the list provided by the Foundation Fighting Blindness, such as Retinitis Pigmentosa, Best disease, Usher syndrome, and Stargardt disease.
