PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the association of static (visual acuity, visual fields, and contrast sensitivity) and dynamic (dynamic visual acuity and motion threshold) measures of vision with mobility performance on a mobility course with obstacles.

Standardized examinations were used to test binocular visual acuity… CONTINUE READING
