Thomson Test Charts: Which version is for me?

In the mid 90s, a team led by Professor David Thomson set about developing the software to exploit new developments in computer and display technology to provide eye care professionals with a powerful new set of tools for vision assessment in the consulting room. Test Chart 2000 was launched in January 2000 and was the first Windows-based computerised test chart in the world. The program provided a cost-effective and extremely versatile alternative to conventional back-illuminated charts and projectors and the response from clinicians was immediate and enthusiastic.

Since then, our Test Chart software has been installed in over 8000 consulting rooms including optometric practices, many major hospital eye departments, all the University Optometry Departments in the UK and many overseas, Diabetic Screening Units, Occupational Health Departments and Research Laboratories.
