Abstract:

A method is described for obtaining rapid and reliable estimates of acuity in infants, for both monocular and binocular viewing. The method depends on 'preferential looking', where the infant prefers to look at a striped pattern rather than a blank screen of matched mean luminance. A staircase procedure for testing is followed, with observations being recorded by a 'blind' observer (who does not know on which of the 2 screens the striped pattern is displayed).
