The CSV-1000HGT tests a combination of contrast and glare sensitivity. It provides the most accurate measure of vision loss for cataract patients and others with glare symptoms. The device is widely used for cataract documentation for patients who have significant visual complaints, but maintain good acuity. It has also been selected for use in more than 50 FDA clinical trials.
Documentation of cataract vision loss requires less than 30 seconds per eye. A functional acuity score is provided which translates the vision loss to an acuity value for electronic medical records. The test is great for patients who have good acuity but complain about the quality of their vision.
"All of my cataract patients are tested on the CSV-1000HGT. I have tried other glare tests and have found the VectorVision instrument to be the easiest and fastest to use, plus it is the most accurate. I trust the automatic standardization of the CSV-1000HGT."

The CSV-1000HGT can easily roll from room-to-room or hang on the examination room wall. The device uses patented circuitry to automatically standardize the testing light level . Patients can be easily tested for standardized glare and contrast sensitivity through the phoropter or trial frames, while seated in the examination chair.
"The VectorVision CSV-1000 is very easy to use with my cataract patients. I consider it to be 'a must have' instrument for my practice."
