The test, which is used to diagnose the presence of NVDARK, is also used to help the doctor assess the patient’s ability to pay attention to the information in the brain, a critical part of their daily life.
It is also a way to help physicians detect when someone is having problems focusing and processing information, such as visual impairment.
The test can be used by both individuals and in small groups of people, with each person testing themselves in the lab.
“This is a really exciting test that has the potential to help us really identify people with this condition,” said Dr. Joseph D. Pimentel, chief medical officer at the National Eye Institute.
According to Dr. Piments, the test can determine whether the person has a visual impairment called dyschromia, a condition in which the color of the eye is affected.
If the person can’t focus, the eye will turn blue, and if the person cannot focus, they may lose some of their vision.
Dr. Pimental said it is important for people with visual impairment to know that the test is only used in small, controlled groups.
While the test does not measure the number of retinal cells in the eye, it does provide information about how the cells are distributed, and helps the doctor better understand how retinal disease may develop.
In addition to the retinal tests, Dr. Paul D. Vasey, director of the Mayo Clinic Eye Institute, said he hopes to eventually use the test to detect Alzheimer’s disease.
“This test is a good example of how it can be a really powerful tool to help doctors make better decisions and diagnose patients with eye diseases,” Dr. Vasingy said.
