The MD Simulator shows the effects of Macular Degeneration dynamically. Usually MD is explained with a static picture showing somewhere in the field a scotoma (blind spot). However, this does not always explain well the problems an MD patient experiences. In the MD Simulator the scotoma is coupled to the mouse position. If now the mouse position is couple to the gaze direction (manually or with an eye-tracker), a better understanding of the vision of an MD patient is obtained.
