OBJECTIVE In order to gain a more complete picture of the influence of alcohol on visual performance, we measured contrast sensitivity for a range of spatial and temporal frequencies in individuals with moderate blood alcohol concentrations (BACs). METHOD Subjects were tested at blood alcohol concentrations of 0.06% in both the rising and falling phases of absorption. In the first part of the study, the performance of two men and four women on a number of simple screening measures and static… CONTINUE READING
