FLICKER FUSION, DARK ADAPTATION AND AGE AS PREDICTORS OF NIGHT VISION

DARK ADAPTATION AND CRITICAL FLICKER FUSION THRESHOLDS FOR 60 SUBJECTS RANGING IN AGE FROM 16 THROUGH 89 WERE OBTAINED. A METHODICAL ANALYSIS OF THE STATISTICAL INTERRELATIONSHIP AMONG DARK ADAPTATION THRESHOLDS AND CRITICAL FLICKER FUSION THRESHOLDS AS FUNCTION OF SURROUND, LIGHT/DARK RATIO, AND AGE WERE SYSTEMATICALLY EXAMINED. THE PREDICTION OF DARK ADAPTATION THRESHOLD AT THE 40TH MINUTE WAS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED BY CERTAIN CRITICAL FLICKER FUSION DATA. /AUTHOR/
