Test and document glare disability efficiently

Cataracts are known to cause reduced vision and disabling glare.  This is particularly significant for older patients driving an automobile at night.

Lack of adequate documentation of this visual impairment in patients with cataracts may result in denial for coverage of cataract surgery from Medicare and private insurance companies.

While many methods of glare documentation suffer from inconsistent light intensity and angle, the EpiGlare offers a standardized repeatable approach to testing and documenting glare disability with best corrected vision.
