Peripheral visual acuity and age

Collins, Michael J., Brown, Brian, & Bowman, Kenneth J. (1989) Peripheral visual acuity and age. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 9, pp. 314-316.


We measured the peripheral visual acuity of a group of eleven older subjects (mean age 54.2 years) and a group of seventeen young subjects (mean age 22.1 years). Peripheral visual acuity was measured using Konig bars with critical detail subtending 2.4 and 4.8 minutes of arc. The older group showed a substantial reduction of peripheral visual acuity.

Citation counts are 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.
