Tags: #Medical #Publications #Technology

The easee vision test has been validated in a healthy population (link to the study), but now its accuracy was assessed in uveitis patients, a potentially sight threatening inflammation of the eye.

Due to the recent COVID‐19 pandemic, it is even more important to research and better understand a telehealth approach assisting triaging urgency of appointments.

The outcome of the easee test was compared to the outcome of conventional hospital assessments in 98 complex uveitis eyes. The web-based tool seems a promising instrument to estimate visual acuity of uveitis patients in their home‐environment. 

These outcomes underline the potential of remote vision testing in other common ophthalmic conditions.
