Testing visual capabilities for medical surveillance or to ensure job fitness.
A rationale is presented for designing screening-type eye examinations to document visual capabilities for specific jobs or changes in visual function following exposure to specific ocular hazards. Possible applications to clinical situations are also discussed. A battery of tests that includes contrast (glare) sensitivity, distortions in macular imaging, and color vision is detailed for use with three populations: automobile driver's license applicants, visual display operators, and laser users, including military as well as nonmilitary installers and repairers of optical fibers for communications.
