  • Press Release: 12/25/24. The ROYAL COLLEGE of OPHTHALMOLOGISTS. Relative foveal dark adaptation: a potential method for assessing macular health.
 Kane JS, Gaspich M, Avery G, Pichardo H, Kane SA. email: sak6@cumc.columbia.edu
    
Conclusion: This method of dark adaptation is intuitive, repeated, and relatively unaffected by testing conditions. Testing times are requiring only an iPhone screen positioned at reading distance. Relative foveal dark adaptation may be a useful tool to assess macular health. Eye; https://doi.org/10.1038/s41433-024-03201-2 (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41433-024-03201-2)

Appearing in the Royal College of Ophthalmologist's Nature/Eye Journal in open access (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41433-021-01862-x.pdf) is the article, "Screening Children using a Mobile Graphic Device", authored by Steven A. Kane, Mark Gaspich, Julia Kane, Sarah A. Weitzman, and Albert Hofeldt from Columbia University and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mt. Sinai.  According to Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Steven A. Kane, MD, PhD, brightness sense balance, acuity, and color vision can be measured in children as young as 3 years old solely through playing a fun and easy game on a mobile device. The DiagnosticGame app detects "Lazy Eye" by two methods, visual acuity, and brightness sense balance. This is the first report of measuring brightness sense balance in children.
