We are delighted to share the latest update on our research for the new Kay Amblyopia Tracker App with you.

The first stage of our research has been completed, peer-reviewed and published in the freely-available British and Irish Orthoptic Journal this month.

The investigators at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital and at the University of Liverpool have established our hypothesis that a visual acuity score taken by varying the test distance along the logarithmic scale is not significantly different to a visual acuity score measured in the conventional manner by changing the optotype size at one fixed distance.

The next two ongoing phases of the research will establish the practicalities of using this new approach in our Amblyopia Tracker app by parents and their children in a home setting.
