SLOAN Study: Investigation of the suitability of low-contrast SLOAN eye charts as a method for the evaluation of disease progression in multiple sclerosis

This study was a progression investigation into contrast visual acuity, which is often impaired with MS. In this study, three visits took place in two years and these included neurological examination, optical coherence tomography and SLOAN contrast charts. This study was open to patients with clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting and secondary progressive MS.
