Abstract

In this research, we develop a technology called “computational ophthalmology” as an approach to dramatically improve the quality of social life of individuals with vision deficiency by making full use of the latest augmented reality technology. Various types of sensing devices are combined for capturing the objective configuration of a real environment scene or the subjective intentions of individual patient and we develop a method to compensate for the characteristic color perception and vision characteristic of the disease through an optical see-through / video see-through head-mounted display. And, it is clinically verified that the effect of adaptive visual acuity enhancement, which was difficult to use with conventional optical instruments and simple image conversion, can be achieved by the proposed technology.
