As a typical vision test is not always suitable in certain groups of patients (such as young children or those with a cognitive impairment), researchers at the University of Nottingham have developed a new method of estimating visual function by recording microsaccades using an eye tracker and a computer display.

The study is now seeking patients with age-related changes or eye disease in order to optimise its efficiency for use in a clinical setting, with the hope that this will improve the speed and accuracy of vision measurements for the target patient groups in the future.

Patients with amblyopia, cataract, glaucoma or AMD in either or both eyes are sought, an inconvenience allowance will be paid and all patient information collected will be kept confidential.

The project takes place at the School of Psychology, University of Nottingham, and is funded by the eye research charity, Fight for Sight.
