Acuity test letters generated on a television monitor were studied with regard to detection and resolution thresholds, both for the native configurations and after high-pass spatial frequency filtering. Comparisons were made with printed acuity charts of different contrast. Filtering diminished the interval between detection and resolution thresholds. Under some circumstances, a small (1 dB, about 26%) increment in size could make a previously invisible optotype clearly visible, or vice versa… CONTINUE READING
