The objective methods consist of:1: A resolution target projection ophthalmoscope (Acuity scope) for the estimation of potential visual acuity.2: The Oxford Clinical Cataract Classification and Grading System, which records and quantifies the features of the lens that are visible at the slit-lamp microscope. This system is essential since photographic methods cannot define the morphology of… CONTINUE READING
