Researchers share latest high-tech advances in vision research

The 2018 ARVO New Conference was held on Tuesday, May 1 from 9 – 10am HAST (ET - 3pm) during the ARVO Annual Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii. The News Conference featured five researchers from around the world who shared the latest high-tech advances in research to treat, diagnose and prevent diseases causing vision loss.

The new findings demonstrate the impact of technology on vision and on vision science:

  • Online vision symptom checkers often misdiagnose
  • Are robots the doctors of the future? Research indicates maybe
  • At home testing device screens for common cause of vision loss
  • Holographic eye tracker to enable monitoring outside of the clinic
  • Virtual reality app makes vision screening mobile
