AmblyoCare is a software system developed in the frame of the SEE-KID / CEVD project in cooperation with the hospital “Barmherzige Brüder” Linz and the General Hospital of Linz (AKH Linz). A demo version can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
The main goal of AmblyoCare is to provide an environment for ophthalmologists which allows an effective and objective early diagnosis and therapy of high grade amblyopia especially for infants. Although training the remaining vision is most effective at a young age by regular therapy, the target group of AmblyoCare not only includes infants and children, but also high grade visually affected adult patients.
The system structure of AmblyoCare allows three different scenarios: the investigator can run the examinations and control them on one computer with one monitor, on one computer with two monitors or on two monitors with one computer for controlling the examinations remotely while the patient sees the stimuli on another computer. These three scenarios guarantee a high flexibility for using the software according to the needs and possibilities of doctors and patients.
Currently, the following methods for diagnosis and therapy of high grade amblyopia are included in AmblyoCare:
- Visual Attention
- Moving Stripes (Optocinetic Nystagmus)
- Rotating Disc (Eccentric Fixation)
- Visual Acuity (Shapes, Snellen-Test, Landolt-Test)
- Smooth Pursuit Movement
- Saccades Movement
- Contour Detection
- Preferential Looking
