Take care of your vision. With this program you can test your vision at home. It can't replace optician's regular full examination or advise of ophthalmologist, but with this vision test you may discover that your eyesight deteriorates and you need to visit a doctor.
90% of all information that comes into our brain is visual. That's why eye care is so important.
The advantages of this eye test are that it is easy to use, it is totally free, it provides visual acuity measurement statistics (history, charts and trends). You can also schedule next eye exam (daily or weekly).
- Make sure you are in a comfortable position
- Make sure that there is no glare on the phone's screen.
- Place your phone approximately 40 cm/16 inches from your eyes.
- Close one eye at a time
During the test you will see different objects. Try to identify shown object. The sequence of objects is random. That prevents learning the sequence and guessing the answer.
- Several eye charts are available: Snellen chart, Landolt "C", Tumbling E, chart with pictures for little kids
- Objects are shown randomly
- Measurements statistics are available
This application is not intended to replace optician's regular full examination. We recommend you get a full eye test after using it.
Finally, an optokinetic diagnostic and therapeutic app for Android! This is the first and only OKN (Optokinetic Nystagmus) app endorsed by the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation (IAFNR). 10% of OPK sales will be generously donated to the IAFNR for their continued research in the field of Functional Neurology.
OPK was designed to induce optokinetic nystagmus using an Android device. This is a modern replacement for old-fashioned optokinetic drums or cloth strips used by most orthoptists and neurologists. By using this app, a nystagmus will develop in both infants and adults with normal vision. The presence of nystagmus typically indicates an intact visual pathway.
This easy-to-use application provides multiple configuration options. When the app is launched, it will display alternating black and white horizontal stripes. From there, you can...
• Horizontal swype to change the colors of the stripes. Options include black/white, red/white and black/white/red/white.
• Vertical swype to scroll the stripes in the direction of the swype. The scrolling speed is incremented with each subsequent swype. Scrolling is bidirectional.
• Double tap the scrolling stripes to stop the stripes from scrolling.
• Pinch or Zoom with two fingers to resize the stripes. This can be done in either a stopped or scrolling state.
This app provides direct links to useful ophthalmology resources, key ophthalmology journals, interesting surgical videos, handy ophthalmic atlases, and for UK trainees, the RCOphth Portfolio.
Hope you guys find it useful too!
Please leave feedback as to how I may improve future versions of this app.

DOC is designed to be used by eye care professionals in a domiciliary environment. It is designed to maximise patient responses when testing patients who suffer confusion, dementia, learning or communication difficulties while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. To do this its three full Snellen charts are displayed as single lines to help focus attention. There are also customisable written instructions built in for better communication with patients with hearing loss.
Other features include:- Uncrowded single letter snellen chart, Picture chart, Near vision chart, Duo Chrome, Cross Cyl target, Fixation disparity.
DOC is designed to be used with 7" and above tablets, although no restrictions on installation have been implemented to restrict its use from smaller devices to aid with testing and familiarity.
Please note, this program has been tested exhaustively and used for over 12 months in "live" environments however due to the vast array of tablet screen and resolution sizes we strongly recommend testing, familiarising yourself with the program and calibrating the software on your tablet prior to live use.
DOC will also work with a Bluetooth connection to a Nintendo Wii remote control*, this is achieved using an external piece of software freely available of Google Play market called "WiiMote", more details including installation and setting up can be found on our web site or by searching for "WiiMote" on the Google Play Store.
*Please note, original Wii Remote Control only. Dependent upon device compatibility.
COMING SOON! A free add-on for DOC to enable your Google powered phone to control the program remotely via Bluetooth. This program will be free for all DOC users to install.
Please note, this is the European "metric" version, coming soon switchable to US "imperial" measurement.
It provides a quick and simple guide to recognising important signs and symptoms, and management of common eye emergencies.
The app will also be of assistance in triaging patients to appropriate care within the health system.
The content within this app was developed by ophthalmic and emergency clinicians of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI).
These guidelines have not undergone a formal process of evidence based clinical practice guideline development however they are the result of consensus opinion determined by the expert clinician working group. They are not a definitive statement on the correct procedures rather they constitute a general guide to be followed subject to the clinician’s judgment in each case. The consensus opinion provided is based on the best information available at the time of writing.
To help with ease of use, this manual has a high graphic content, and is subdivided into anatomy, basic ophthalmic workup (history, examination, diagnostic techniques and treatment), and management of common eye presentations.
Each of the presenting conditions is subdivided into the following sections:
• Immediate action (if any)
• Follow-up - When to refer?
Have you noticed that ophthalmologists speak a language all their own? Physicians in other medical fields can have difficulty understanding ophthalmology notes because of plethora the abbreviations, acronyms, and initialisms.
This application provides common and uncommon acronyms and initialisms used by ophthalmologists. Look up the (sometimes multiple) definitions for each acronym. Included are acronyms and initialisms from general ophthalmology, glaucoma, oculoplastics, genetics, retina, neuroophthalmology, cornea, and pediatric ophthalmology.
Learning the elements of a physical exam can be daunting. Pocket PEx provides a quick reference for early learners, enabling them to rapidly review the components of a regional exam, as well as the order in which the elements can be performed. There is a lot of room for flexibility and variations are common (i.e. there is not a single "best" way to
do this). The key aspects are highlighted, recognizing that there are always
things that might be added or removed based on the clinical circumstances.
While the exam areas are presented as "modules" (e.g. vital signs, head
and neck, eye, etc), clinicians typically link together components that make the
most sense for a particular situation. The final check lists (comprehensive
exams) present most of the elements tied together in an organized fashion, one
that allows the examiner to be efficient as they move from one skill to the

The joy of learning is in SHARING. This application is developed with the belief that anything that is value of life only multiplies when it is given.
In the journey of medical education, Neurology is considered as one of the difficult subject. The prime objective of this application is to make the subject of Neurology easy to understand through animated videos, interesting cases and articles.
During bedside case discussions, clinical questions are asked to students. This application will help them to find answers to common clinical questions and perform better in exams as well as in clinical practice.
There are two major divisions in the application - Articles and videos.
Articles include interesting cases, theory topics, clinical information, neuro-radiology cases etc.
Video section will be divided into many categories like Neuro-anatomy, Symptomatology, Guidelines, Diagnostic criteria, Differential diagnosis, EEG, Neuro-radiology, Interesting cases, Patient education videos etc.
Each category will have sub-categories and each sub-category will have a list of videos to be played.
Articles and videos will be updated on a regular basis and the user will get notification accordingly.
Please send your valuable feedback or video request on firstname.lastname@example.org to improve the application.
Dynamic links between terms allow easy navigation, and a search function makes finding relevant information fast.
Topics covered include ocular anatomy and physiology, optics, ocular pathology, clinical techniques, visual perception and psychophysics, low vision, dispensing and orthoptics.
The application has 12 types of eye tests:
* Visual acuity tests (based on a Snellen chart, numbers and text, with black or white background)
* An Ishihara Color Blindness test
* 4 Amsler grid tests
* An AMD test for macular degeneration
* A Glaucoma survey
* A Written test aka. how much do you know about the eye?
* An OKN Strip test
* Red Desaturation test
* Contrast Sensitivity test
* Duochrome test
* Landolt C/Tumbling E test
* Astigmatism test
Due to variations in each screen accuracy (screen size, brightness/contrast, resolution) the eye tests are not perfect. Holding a phone of approx 4" screen size 30 cm/12 inches from your eyes would give you nearly accurate results. Hold it (place it) 52cm/20inches from your eyes if you have e.g. a 7" tablet.
Do not consider the tests in the app official tests. These tests only mean to give you an idea whether or not you should see an eye doctor or go on an eye therapy.
The visual acuity test is a routine part of an eye examination, particularly in case of vision problems.
Color Blindness is a commonly misleading term, because most people think color blind people cannot see colors. They can see colors, but cannot make out the difference between some couples of complementary colors.
The Amsler grid is a grid of horizontal and vertical lines used to check vision problems caused by changes in the retina, particularly the macula as well as the optic nerve.
Age-related macular degeneration is a progressing eye condition that affects millions of people. The disease attacks the macula, which is responsible for the sharp, central vision.
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve and can result in vision loss. If left untreated, It can lead to blindness. With the proper treatment you can protect your eyes and vision.
The optic nerve is sensitive to red, so when it is damaged, red-colored objects may appear dull, washed-out or faded.
A contrast sensitivity test checks for the ability to differentiate between light and dark.
This test is used to estimate whether you are long or short sighted.
The Landolt C is the standard optotype for acuity measurement in most European countries.
This test is the standard visual acuity test for people who cannot read the Roman alphabet.
Astigmatism is a vision condition that causes blurred vision making it difficult to see fine details, either close up or from a distance.
What to do if I get bad results?
If your results indicate you may have vision problems, you should see an eye doctor. Having regular eye examinations promotes eye health. It also allows your doctor to measure your vision and make the necessary changes to your prescriptions.
You can also download eye training apps to preserve your eye sight and improve vision. You should take better care of your eyes and vision. Preserving vision health is one of our most important thing to do. Omitting eye care and eye exams can result in serious vision damage.
If you experience any eye problems using the web browser, to-do apps, calendars, writing messages or checking the phone book or the call log, you should take this test to check if you need eye treatment and/or vision training.
