Abstract

Visual distortions play a crucial role in early diagnosis and timely treatment of several eye diseases such as the age-related macular degeneration (AMD). A framework to collect quantitative information about visual distortions, map them to the regions of retina where they may originate, and correlate them to retinal health information obtained using clinical tests, is described in this paper. The resulting composite retinal map can enable physicians to diagnose and treat AMD with minimal manual effort. Our results using the system in practice enabled physicians to study the correlation of distortions to retina lesions with minimal manual overheads.
