contrast sensitivity

Long-term observation of SMILE gives better myopia prognosisLong-term observation of SMILE reveals high stability at various degrees of correction of myopia. This allows surgeons who apply this method of treatment to give patients a long-term prognosis.
Dry AMD therapy evolves with photobiomodulationNon-invasive photobiomodulation may help dry age-related macular degeneration by causing regression of drusen and improving retinal function with benefits in visual acuity and contrast sensitivity.
Improvements in detecting and measuring glaucoma round out 2015As 2015 progressed, researchers reported better ways to detect glaucoma, measure the damage it is causing, and understand how that damage is affecting their patients’ lives. No single innovation revolutionized the profession, but a wide range of technologies became more available to clinicians.
Real-world simulation shows patients they need cataract surgeryOphthalmologists discuss the importance of routine contrast sensitivity and glare testing in cataract-age adults and specifically the use of a platform that includes a real-world driver’s scene.
Contrast sensitivity metrics extend beyond measure of visionContrast sensitivity is a more valuable metric than many ophthalmologists realize, with applications in preoperative and postoperative management of corneal and refractive surgery patients and routine screening of patients’ quality of vision.
Contrast sensitivity test targets AMDA new letter contrast sensitivity test may aid in the evaluation of patients with age-related macular degeneration and other retinal diseases.
