Flicker-Plus (Rapid Flicker)

Preliminary studies have identified rapid flicker sensitivity as an important biomarker in glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and ocular hypertension. Measures thresholds at the fovea and in each of the four quadrants at the same time.

Preliminary studies identified rapid flicker sensitivity as an important biomarker in glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and ocular hypertension. Flicker-Plus was developed to investigate these early observations. The test measures rapid flicker thresholds at the fovea and in each of the four quadrants. A full study designed to measure how flicker thresholds vary in ‘healthy’ aging as a function of light level has been carried out and the results will soon be made available.

Night Vision module for Flicker-Plus

The Night Vision module allows the measurement of rod and cone sensitivities without the need for extended dark adaptation (saving half an hour per subject) and provides useful data on rod and cone losses as a function of age or in patients with diseases of the retina.
