ROGERS, Ark., January 31, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Waggoner Diagnostics, an organization that develops, manufactures, and distributes medical devices for the ophthalmic industry, announced today that it has released the Waggoner Computerized Color Vision Test (CCVT) app for iPad. The Waggoner CCVT is available for purchase from iTunes for an introductory price of $799. In the future, it will retail for $999.
Waggoner CCVT is the world’s only US military-validated extended color vision diagnostic application for iPad. Formerly marketed under ColorDx, the Waggoner CCVT has been validated by, and is routinely used at the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute in Pensacola, FL (NAMI) to evaluate Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine, and Army applicants and aviators.
The Waggoner CCVT is a cutting-edge medical device that helps doctors (ex: optometrists, ophthalmologists) identify both genetic (protan, deutan) and acquired (tritan) deficiencies. These diagnostic results allow doctors in clinical settings to assess neurological and ocular disorders in a manner that was not commonly utilized due to lack of efficient and effective tools used for diagnosing color vision deficiencies. The Waggoner CCVT is exceptional for measuring progression of diseases such as glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, macular degeneration and following ocular toxicities from medications such as Plaquenil.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to release a military-grade color vision diagnostic to the public that allows doctors to improve upon the care they provide their patients,” said T.J. Waggoner, CEO of Waggoner Diagnostics. “Waggoner Diagnostics has truly been able to develop a device that not only improves patient care in my practice but has a good ROI. It’s obvious that Waggoner Diagnostics is in the ophthalmic medical device industry for the right reasons. We are proud to be working with the Waggoner CCVT,” said Dr. Adam Ramsey of Iconic Eye Care.
Waggoner Diagnostics now offers the Waggoner CCVT on Windows® and iOS in addition to its line of print color vision books such as the Color Vision Testing Made Easy and Waggoner PIP24.
