28.11.2018 – New publication from the Optoelectrophysiological Engineering group

This article shows a successful concept for simulating central scotoma, which is associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), in healthy subjects by an induced dark spot at the retina using occlusive contact lenses. The new concept includes a control mechanism to adjust the scotoma size through controlling pupil size without medication. Therefore, a miniaturized full-field adaptation device was used.
