Contrast sensitivity deficits in subjects with glaucoma-like discs using an oscilloscope-based method

Wood, Joanne M. (1992) Contrast sensitivity deficits in subjects with glaucoma-like discs using an oscilloscope-based method. Acta Ophthalmologica, 70(5), pp. 610-614.

Abstract

The central visual function of 20 subjects with glaucoma-like discs, normal intraocular pressures and normal visual fields and 20 age-matched normal subjects was assessed by measuring contrast sensitivity using an oscilloscope technique. The subjects with glaucoma-like discs exhibited a significant reduction in contrast sensitivity compared to the age-matched normal; these differences were greatest at spatial frequencies of 2 and 4 cdeg-1.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
