An eye chart acuity appraisal program with multiple tests, written for my father’s optometric (eye doctor) practice
Rating: 10 (Works well, has tons of features, and even works at appropriate speeds even though it’s in VB.NET. (That took a lot of tweaking!))
Project Time: 1/2006-8/2006: 60
Languages: VB6, VB.NET
Requirements: .NET Runtimes
Downloads: No downloads currently available
Sections: Information, Content, Concepts, Notes, Comments
Can’t really provide much info ATM due to possible commercial applicable reasons.
Update on 1/29/2013: I've been torn for a very long time whether to just release this to the public domain or not. I think it really has some great commercial applications, but I'm not really in the commercial application support/release biz...

But if you stop by his office for an exam, you can see it in action :).
Was originally programmed in VB6, but was reprogrammed in VB.NET when I realized my dad might want to play with the code too.

There is no other solid program of this genre in the market that I could find, which is rather sad.

Hi Dakusan

I'm an elderlish optometry PhD student in London, UK  and am looking for alternative test chart software for a single  location.  How do I evaluate/buy/admire a copy of yours?
