This study investigates a technique that could be used to analyze the visual tasks performed by people with low vision. Investigators discuss the development of a technique to improve the speed and accuracy of the analysis of retinal motion from scanning laser ophthalmoscope image sequences.


The new software technique was tested on both normal and low-vision subjects and compared with the results obtained with manual techniques.


The findings indicate the new technique works very well for most patients.


Retinal movement monitoring will help researchers investigate the visual patterns of people with low vision, which may lead to new rehabilitation therapies.
