CAN THE TIME TO RE-ADAPT AFTER GLARE BE CALCULATED?

KANN DIE DAUER DER READAPTATION NACH BLENDUNG BERECHNET WERDEN?

Glare significantly reduces visual capacity, a fact which is of particular importance in road traffic safety. Tests undertaken by the authors with the Goldmann adaptometer show that each glare situation increases the adaptation condition, loss of adaptation occurs, which corresponds to the intensity of the light source, and readaptation becomes equal to the initial adaptation. Since dark adaptation is practically constant, the authors have arithmetically produced a mutual hyperbola as a basis for their calculations and hope to be able to produce an approximate prediction of the glare phenomenon from the formula obtained.
