Macular disease app to improve reading



Scientists from Royal Holloway University are launching a new iPad app to help people with macular disease.
 
The MD_evReader is designed to enhance the eccentric viewing technique for reading eBooks. Text is presented into the reader’s best point of eccentric vision and helps them to maintain a ‘steady eye’. 
 
Chief executive of the Macular Society, Helen Jackman, said: “This app represents an excellent opportunity to help people affected by macular disease to read more easily.”
