Factory of ideas
"I have an idea" - an ophthalmologist colleague once told me when I was telling him over a cup of coffee about the creation of what we are currently working on. "Maybe someone wants to explore this" - I thought then.

During the development, we gathered ideas from beginners and experienced professionals, which we would like to share with you because now you have a new tool to explore the value of its possible applications.
Evaluation of the Negative Contribution of Visual Defects
"It would be interesting to assess the degree of influence of various types of visual defects in visually impaired people when they solve various problems in everyday and professional life. The first could help create manuals for ophthalmologists with specific recommendations for visually impaired patients, and the second could give employers a tool to create an effective environment for employees with significant visual impairments".
Glossary of Patient Terms
"In my practice, I often encounter situations when the patients describe their symptoms in a language I do not understand because we have different backgrounds and different vocabulary. I would like to see a collection of verbal descriptions of various visual symptoms from patients in order to better understand them".
Art Therapy
"It is possible if a patient with significant visual problems is him or herself involved in creating a simulation, then this can be a good tool for adapting to his or her condition, especially against the background of depressive disorders".
"In my opinion, it would be interesting to experimentally evaluate changes in brain activity to objective stimuli (familiar objects or new objects) using various vision-limiting defects".
Cognitive Function
Various visual impairments affect personality changes in different ways, its brain activity along with cognitive functions, and this is interesting from the point of view of a doctor's practice. How to effectively interact with patients who have various types of visual impairment, how to communicate with them correctly?
