I find this website very beneficial.
As a researcher in the field of vision and neurodegenerative disease it (as with all vision scientists) is challenging to keep up with the literature. The recent posting of occipital damage and retrograde retina changes is such an example. I was not aware of this exciting work. thank you for this website.
IMMAD - Impairment Measurement Marijuana and Driving is a company that specializes in education, services and technology for the responsible use of cannabis/marijuana. We currently have an NIH NIDA SBIR to study retinal dysfunction with marijuana use as it relates to impaired driving. We have developed a goggle system using virtual reality combined with a smart phone and blue tooth response. The system measures the central forty degrees of each eye using a temporal target of variable contrast. We are finding that those having recently used marijuana have dysfunction in the retina resulting in deficits in the field of vision.
