Paper Abstract

The rationale for designing screening type eye examinations to document visual capabilities for specific jobs or changes in visual function following exposure to specific ocular hazards is discussed. Possible applications to clinical situations are also discussed. Specific tests meeting requirements of definite end point quantification, ease of administration, and reproducibility are given for contrast (glare) sensitivity, distortions in macular imaging (Amsler grid), and color vision. The selection is aetailed for tne individual test combinations of various populations such as automobile uriver license applicants, visual display operators, and persons exposed to lasers, including military as well as non-military installers and repairers of optical fibers for communications.
