Age-related Macular Degeneration is a medical condition affecting an estimated 1.75 million Americans aged 40 years and older, with that number expected to grow to 2.95 million by 2020. AMD is a leading cause of blindness in the population aged 65 and over. Many existing methods to cope for the disease operate using the principle that magnifying an image results in a smaller portion it being lost due to a macular scotoma. With the increasing use of electronic vision enhancement systems (EVES) in recent years, a head mounted digital image warping prosthesis for use with AMD has been created that remaps images in a manner that compensates for central visual field defects.
