The Visionsearch1 Normals project is creating a reference set of data that can be considered a representation of the normal population so that individual readings can be compared to and subsequently identify variations. This data is being collected using multifocal Visual Evoked Potential equipment.
Participants must be between the ages of 20 and 50 years with healthy eyes.
If there is a known problem with the retina (this includes macular degeneration or glaucoma) or have photosensitive epilepsy then the subject is excluded.
The following tests will be conducted to determine whether you are a good candidate:
- Visual Acuity
- Humphrey Visual Field
- Colour Vision
- Intraocular pressure (to exclude glaucoma)
- OCT (to exclude any retinal diseases/issues)
If you show no anomalies in the above tests, you will then sit a mfVEP test on the Visionsearch1 System. The multifocal VEP measures the visual information received at the visual processing center. Electrodes will be placed on the back of your head and you will be required to focus on a computer screen with a flashing pattern on it.
Volunteers will be paid $40 for their participation.
Please contact Daniella at VisionSearch: firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time. Testing is conducted on Saturdays at Save Sight Institute clinic.
