Author information

In August 1988, we surveyed a random 10% sample of the members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery about their use of contrast sensitivity and glare testing. Of 396 surveys mailed, 214 were returned for a response rate of 54.3%. Thirty-six percent of respondents used glare testing alone; 5.6% used contrast sensitivity testing alone; 23.4% used both test modalities; 35% used neither. The most common uses of glare and contrast sensitivity testing were to evaluate visual function in patients who have cataracts, secondary cataracts, and/or intraocular lens problems.
