* An Ishihara Color Blindness test
* 4 Amsler grid tests
* An AMD test for macular degeneration

* A Written test aka. how much do you know about the eye?
* An OKN Strip test
* Red Desaturation test
* Contrast Sensitivity test
* Duochrome test
* Landolt C/Tumbling E test
* Astigmatism test
Due to variations in each screen accuracy (screen size, brightness/contrast, resolution) the eye tests are not perfect. Holding a phone of approx 4" screen size 30 cm/12 inches from your eyes would give you nearly accurate results. Hold it (place it) 52cm/20inches from your eyes if you have e.g. a 7" tablet.
Do not consider the tests in the app official tests. These tests only mean to give you an idea whether or not you should see an eye doctor or go on an eye therapy.
The visual acuity test is a routine part of an eye examination, particularly in case of vision problems.
Color Blindness is a commonly misleading term, because most people think color blind people cannot see colors. They can see colors, but cannot make out the difference between some couples of complementary colors.
The Amsler grid is a grid of horizontal and vertical lines used to check vision problems caused by changes in the retina, particularly the macula as well as the optic nerve.
Age-related macular degeneration is a progressing eye condition that affects millions of people. The disease attacks the macula, which is responsible for the sharp, central vision.
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve and can result in vision loss. If left untreated, It can lead to blindness. With the proper treatment you can protect your eyes and vision.
The optic nerve is sensitive to red, so when it is damaged, red-colored objects may appear dull, washed-out or faded.
A contrast sensitivity test checks for the ability to differentiate between light and dark.
This test is used to estimate whether you are long or short sighted.
The Landolt C is the standard optotype for acuity measurement in most European countries.
This test is the standard visual acuity test for people who cannot read the Roman alphabet.
Astigmatism is a vision condition that causes blurred vision making it difficult to see fine details, either close up or from a distance.
