    Hi Victoria, I think I understand a little of what the Visual Contract Sensitivity test is about. But, if you have some time, will you please explain it in more detils.
    I'm being tested for Lyme and this is very interesting to me.

    Thank you,
    DD

    If you google "visual contrast sensitivity test" you should come up with the chronic neurotoxin site, which is Dr. Richie Shoemaker's site also. He does a much better job explaining it than I could rephrase it, LOL...

    it's very interesting, and the test is only $8.95 to take online, altho whether it's as good as taking it in a doctors office is debatable due to lighting conditions, I've heard.

    I've come up negative twice, my husband came up positive altho he's never been tested for Lyme... wishing I'd had my son take it before he was dx'd with Lyme, (he showed up with chronic and active infection on blood tests); he's been on abx for past 6 months and doing better now, so I don't think there'd be a point to have him take it.

    all the best,
    Victoria
