|Electrophysiological method and software to recognize amblyopia in early childhood stage|
Amblyopia (i.e. lazy eye)
is a leading cause of permanent vision loss below age of
Innovation of the technology
The research team implemented an electrophysiological method, which is capable of recognizing the presence or lack of binocularity as early as six month of age. The clinical importance of this technique it that the earlier the detection of the problem, the more efficient the treatment will be. Due to the lack of verbal communication and cooperation, the evaluation of visual acuity is practically impossible by other methods from six month to 3.5 years of age.
They also developed a quick, time effective and reliable method to detect amblyopia in early childhood. This method is capable of identifying all those childhood visual disorders, which may potentially lead to amblyopia after about 3 years of age. The test is based on dynamic random dot stereograms requiring two eyes to recognize a hidden object within the noise. Movies are generated on a laptop or tablet. In contrast to other static stereo tests, the perception of the 3D objects becomes more difficult, even for those who suffer from mild disorder. The results show that mild refractive errors and hidden squints can be identified easily.
- Can be used from early ages on children.
- Easy to use on portable computers.
- More sensitive than other existing technologies (E.g. Lang test, Visus test).
- The time of examination becomes shorter.
- Huge amount of data can be stored.
- User friendly program surface.
- Price / Value rate is outstanding.
