The article deals with a software implementation of the ophthalmologic corrector. The corrector is perceived as a medical device for a correction of the amblyopia. During the exercise, children are requested to draw a template, which is placed on a metal board. This therapeutic procedure has been used in clinical practice for many years. There is a big disadvantage of using the mentioned device. There is no any manageable way for storing and archiving patient’s data. Furthermore, exercise must be performed on the clinical workplace. Due to these facts, we are interested in software design and implement the ophthalmologic corrector. The proposed corrector is based on a mouse-tracking algorithm, which is able to perform the tracking of the mouse movement in the form of continuous line. Formed line overlaps the selected template. This procedure allows the identification of the real time accuracy and distance of the generated line from a given template. Furthermore, the algorithm allows for storing the achieved results for further data processing. It is a required tool for assessment and plan of therapeutic treatment in the field of ophthalmology.
