AIMS To evaluate straylight and contrast sensitivity in cataractous eyes of different morphologies, and to determine which type of cataract presents higher impairment of visual function, specifically compared to studies proposing new norms for European drivers. METHODS Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), contrast sensitivity and straylight were measured in 97 cataractous eyes using respectively a Snellen chart, a Pelli-Robson chart and the compensation comparison method (C-Quant Straylight… CONTINUE READING
