Abstract

Computers are being used frequently in educational environments these days. The Disease Game is a computerized game that tests ones knowledge of diagnosing and treating ocular diseases. Ten subjects (5 fourth year and 5 third year optometry students) were chosen to play this game and rate the game in terms of its accessibility, effectiveness, and enjoyment versus other conventional methods used. It was concluded that the Disease Game could be a valuable supplement to existing teaching methods in the classroom.
