PURPOSE It has been suggested that crowding, the adverse low-level effect due to the proximity of adjacent stimuli, explains slow reading in low-vision patients with absolute macular scotomas. According to this hypothesis, crowding in the vertical dimension should be released by increasing the vertical spacing between lines of text. However, studies with(More)
PURPOSE Reading speed of patients with central field loss (CFL) correlates with the size of saccades (measured in letters per forward saccade [L/FS]). We assessed whether this effect is mediated by the total number of fixations, by the average fixation duration, or by a mixture of both. METHODS We measured eye movements (with a video eye tracker) of 35(More)
PURPOSE To describe new, efficient predictors of maximum reading speed (MRS) in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients with central field loss. Type of AMD (wet versus dry) was scrutinized, because this factor seems to offer a promising model of differential visual adaptation induced by different temporal courses of disease progression. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To describe and quantify a largely unnoticed oculomotor pattern that often occurs when patients with central field loss (CFL) read continuous text: Horizontal distribution of eye fixations dramatically varies across sentences and often reveals clusters. Also to statistically analyze the effect of this new factor on reading speed while controlling(More)
