The Worldwide Leader in Standardized Vision Testing

Standardized Glare Test for Cataract Documentation

Glare test for cataract documentation
Testing contrast sensitivity and glare with the CSV-1000HGT or CSV-2000 is very effective for cataract evaluation and documentation. It is used to establish a functional acuity score for patients under non-glare and glare conditions. Many practices screen all patients over 50 years of age with VectorVision standardized testing in order to establish a baseline for glare sensitivity. The devices are also useful in sports vision evaluation to determine the athletes’ visual status under glare conditions and any potential benefit provided by tinted sunglasses or contact lenses.
 

Worldwide Benchmark for Clinical Trials

Most importantly, the VectorVision testing protocols are recognized as the worldwide benchmarks for standardized contrast sensitivity and glare testing. VectorVision technology and has been selected for use in more than 200 FDA and other clinical trials.

“I have 8 or 9 of the VectorVision instruments in my three offices and have used them every day for many years. We use the devices for cataract screening for all patients 50 and older during their annual exams.”

Cynthia Matossian. MD Doylestown, PA

 

Cataract Documentation

Cataract documentation

Documentation of cataract vision loss requires less than 2 minutes 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 (better than 20/40) 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.”

Scott H. Kirk, MD Kirk Eye Center River Forest, IL

 

Ease of Use

CSV devices

The CSV devices can easily roll from room-to-room or hang on the examination room wall. Both devices 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.”

Gregory J Pamel, MD New York, NY

 

VectorVision Combines Glare and Contrast for Standardized Testing

The CSV-1000HGT and CSV-2000 are standardized vision testing devices which combine contrast sensitivity and glare testing. The glare sources provide a highly accurate simulation of oncoming car headlights at night, the type of visual environment most often complained about by cataract patients. The glare levels are calibrated at the factory so that they provide a sensitive and accurate test for real-world vision.
