From: Albert Hofeldt, MD President, AMA Optics, Inc.
Our DiagnosticGame app is now available at the Apple Store which allows automated vision testing at home for visual acuity, color vision, stereopsis, and for the first time, the brightness-sense. The brightness-sense (Amblyometry) has been studied by scholars for over 40 years and their publications have validated the sensitivity of brightness-sense for detecting amblyopia and glaucoma. The DiagnosticGame advanced patented technology of Binary Choice and Rivalrous Amblyometry has brought brightness-sense testing of age and for the first-time testing is available in an automated self-test that a 4 year-old child enjoys playing on the iPad or iPhone.
During the pandemic, I have made downloading the app free and have reduced the in-app purchase price to Apple's lowest possible value, 99 Cents for each set of 10 tests. Patients with glaucoma confined to home have the option of self-testing using this app and transmitting their optic nerve function results to their doctor. For this purpose, S.A Kane, MD PhD is investigating the DiagnosticGame app at Columbia University. This modern telemedicine app is now available for patients confined to their homes. Visual acuity and optic nerve tests for glaucoma can be self-tested on an iPad or iPhone by the patient and sent to their doctor by email.
