High and low contrast acuity and clinical contrast sensitivity tested in a normal population
Visual acuities obtained with a high contrast Bailey-Lovie chart (HCBL) and a low contrast Bailey-Lovie chart (LCBL) were compared with clinical contrast sensitivity function (CSF) measurements in a group of normal subjects with a wide range of refractive errors. We found high and significant correlations for the measurements obtained with the visual acuity tests and the CSF chart. These results indicate that the CSF test provides little additional information as a screening test in routine practice, and could probably be restricted in its use to patients in whom ocular disease is suspected.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
