Driving and Low Vision: Validity of Assessments for Predicting Performance of Drivers
Strong, J. Graham; Jutai, Jeffrey W.; Russell-Minda, Elizabeth; Evans, Mal
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v102 n6 p340-351 Jun 2008
The authors conducted a systematic review to examine whether vision-related assessments can predict the driving performance of individuals who have low vision. The results indicate that measures of visual field, contrast sensitivity, cognitive and attention-based tests, and driver screening tools have variable utility for predicting real-world driving performance.
