    Default sight training

    I wonder if there is any one who can help? Recently went into hospital with heart problem and had a stroke while there

    damaging vision field. Asked for help from NHS and there is no software available to help restore brain/sight

    function...unless you have over 1000.00.
    So having programmed in basic many years ago thought it would be possible to create a simple program to stimulate the field

    of vision.

    This is what is needed:
    a full screen field of a light or white background;

    A dot or cross in centre of screen;

    a graphic around the size of 5-10mm on a 17 inch screen;

    the graphic to be displayed waiting for a mouse pointer to move over graphic and user to click left button, maybe with a

    sound [beep];

    if graphic displayed and no response received after a specific time [mouse not moved to graphic]audio query used to indicate 'did you see it Y/N'
    If No then program to 'remember' location;

    User clicks on all good locations training program to learn where field is missing;

    Once fully trained program goes into stimulate mode firstly presenting light grey graphic at edge of field of vision loss

    border at each location on the border;

    Program carries out same routine on border but with a half grey graphic;

    Programs carries out same routine on border but with black graphic;

    Program places graphic randomly at all locations where user cannot see field alternating shading from light grey through

    half grey then black;

    As user cannot see in the field loss area program gives audible indication of where the program is and reminds user to

    stare at the centre marker cross or dot;

    Once grey/black stimulation complete program goes into colour mode carrying out same random routine but with random colours;

    Program should last for 30 minutes from start of stimulation;

    Field of vision loss area to be 'remembered' and next time program run this area border will go through grey/black routine

    and ask the question 'can you see any graphic?;

    An extra to the program would be to produce the graphic either side of the loss of vision field border so testing the user

    to see if border has changed;

    If border has changed user can re-train program for new field loss border.

    This is the basis for the program which should be able to run in a browser. Once created a website will be made available

    so anyone can go to the site and 'train'.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Hello bbriggs,

    Welcome to the Java Programming Forums.

    Seeing as you have no experience in Java, this seems like a very big task. Especially as you have issues with your vision.

    I suggest Googling for an already written program which will suit your needs..
