PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review provides an update of recent advances in understanding the quality and functional significance of contrast sensitivity for the clinician regarding cataract, intraocular lenses and refractive surgery that goes beyond the measurement of visual acuity. RECENT FINDINGS New American National Standards Institute standards for contrast sensitivity based on linear sine-wave gratings are discussed that promise rapid advances of understanding and quantifying visual quality… CONTINUE READING
