The effect of cataract surgery was assessed in 103 patients whose visual acuity, as measured in dim light and with high contrast Snellen letters, was 20/50 or better. The patients desired cataract surgery. They complained of glare symptoms, had given up driving at night, or both. Contrast sensitivity was measured under simulated night conditions with a calibrated Vistech MCT 8000 device. No patient who had a contrast sensitivity of less than 27 at 6 cycles per degree (20/70 "equivalent acuity… CONTINUE READING
