By boosting the amplitudes of the intermediate spatial frequencies more than the amplitude of the lower spatial frequencies, reading performance improved significantly when observers with losses in central vision read words that were filtered. Words that were filtered using an image enhancement function based on an observer's losses in visual function relative to a normal observer (1) reduced the magnification (30-70% less magnification was needed) and (2) increased the reading rate (2-3 times… CONTINUE READING
