  1. 1. Optimal Use of Peripheral Vision

    University dissertation from Kalmar, Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Karthikeyan Baskaran; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; off-axis refractive errors; peripheral aberrations; aberrometers; central visual field loss; preferred retinal locus; eccentric viewing; absolute central scotoma; adaptive optics; eccentric correction.; Optometry; Optometri;

    Abstract : People who lose their central vision have to rely on their peripheral vision for all visual tasks. The ability to resolve fine details in the periphery is reduced due to retinal limitations and the optical aberrations arising from the use of off-axis vision. READ MORE

    Abstract : Aims. The main purpose of this study was to investigate different aspects of vision and visual function in old people, like change in vision and visual ability, to study the natural course of eye diseases, assess needs of visual intervention, investigate risk factors for ocular disorders late in life, and also to investigate coexistence between visual and hearing impairments.

    Abstract : Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a technique in which cross-sectional images from intraocular tissue can be obtained. The quantitative and qualitative examinations are used for evaluating retinal diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Study of Some Temporal Properties of the Human Visual Evoked Potential, and Their Relation to Binocular Function

    University dissertation from Institutionen för nervsystem och rörelseorgan

    Author : Björn Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; VEP Visual Evoked Potential ; contrast sensitivity; binocularity; latency; Fourier analysis; strabismus; amblyopia; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : As disturbed binocular functions in small children may lead to severe amblyopia it is of interest to detect it as early as possible. Most tests for binocular functions, however, demand active cooperation and may be unreliable in children up to 4-5 years of age. READ MORE
