Visual impairment, aging and driving ability

Wood, Joanne M. (2002) Visual impairment, aging and driving ability. CE Optometry, 5(2), pp. 45-48.

Abstract

It has been suggested that over 90% of the sensory information for driving is visual. Despite this belief, traditional studies have failed to demonstrate that increased crash rates arise from impaired vision. However, more recent studies using alternative approaches, have demonstrated a relatively strong relationship between vision and driving performance measures, particularly in older populations. This review focuses on this body of literature.

Impact and interest:

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.
