Tablet-Based Monitoring for Enhanced Glaucoma Screening, Dec 2017
In a recently published article in Ophthalmology, researchers from Australia and the UK found that by incorporating tablet-based visual field screening on a weekly basis, the amount of visual field loss that would have been detected in 2.5 years with formal in-clinic testing was detected in 0.9 years with the addition of the tablet based app.
Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust
There is potential to use portable tablets with high quality screens for visual field testing that could have considerable time and cost savings for the hospital. It is found, from testing MRF in Nepal and Melbourne (Australia), that the software is able to detect visual field problems, with good accuracy.
Validation of a Tablet as a Tangent Perimeter, August 2016
Tablet technology can return efficient and reliable thresholds as a tangent perimeter. The MRF will allow testing at a bedside, at home, in rural or remote areas, or where equipment cannot be financed.
