Hey guys,
 
I am wondering if anyone has ever taken this test? It is "is a measure of one of the neurologic functions of vision called contrast." Apparently it can tell you if you have had exposure to biotoxins and if your a neurologically affected by it. The test is $15 online.
 
 
Undiagnosed lyme, bartonella, anaplasmosis, babs for 25 yrs with a 16 year old that I passed lyme and coninfections to through pregnancy. We both began treatment 1/6/11. Still treating. Daughter will be a success story hopefully in 2013!

IMHO (and I know others may disagree with me, and that's ok), the VCS test is a waste of money and time. I have bad brain fog, memory issues, etc., and still was able to pass the VCS test with flying colors.

I did a visual test called FACT (functional acuity contrast test) at Hansa and I failed it twice..meaning neurotoxins in the brain.

I did the VCS test online and did fine about a year previous.

They seem to be similiar. In fact, I would like to have a FACT test to do at home, so I could monitor the neurotoxins as my treatment progresses.

If you ever find a FACT test that's reasonably priced, we could all use one! I think it would be so very helpful if we knew that was the issue!!
