A technique to train new oculomotor behavior in patients with central macular scotomas during reading related tasks using scanning laser ophthalmoscopy: immediate functional benefits and gains…
BackgroundReading with a central scotoma involves the use of preferred retinal loci (PRLs) that enable both letter resolution and global viewing of word. Spontaneously developed PRLs however often… Expand
Can fixation instability improve text perception during eccentric fixation in patients with central scotomas?
Background: Oculomotor behaviour was investigated in 14 patients with central scotomas from age related macular degeneration (AMD) or Stargardt’s disease. A scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) was… Expand

The goal of orientation and mobility training is to prepare people with visual impairment to travel in a variety of environments, both familiar and unfamiliar, and to increase the skills of moving in… Expand
Suivi des patients atteints de dégénérescence maculaire liée à l’âge équipés d’aides visuelles
BACKGROUND: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is at present the major cause of legal blindness in industrialized countries. The results of various treatments are often not satisfactory and… Expand

BackgroundUnderstanding limitations on text reading with eccentric fixation is of major concern in low vision research. Our objective was to determine, in patients with a central scotoma, whether… Expand
Experimental and model comparison of transcritical CO2 versus R134a and R410 system performance. Discussion
Dans cet article, on compare la performance de systemes transcritiques au CO 2 et de systemes utilisant respectivement du R134a et du R410A, dans des conditionneurs d'air de voiture et des pompes a… Expand
[Prise en charge of children with poor vision. Example of the pedagogic center for visually handicapped patients in Lausanne].
The taking in charge of visually handicapped children has largely been modified over the past years, encouraging a better integration into society. This is only possible through multidisciplinary… Expand
