A New Approach to Objective Evaluation of Human Visual Acuity

Arkadiusz Hulewicz


The subject matter of this paper refers to the objective visual acuity assessment methods using non-invasive measurements of visual evoked potentials (VEP) by means of special electrodes. An attempt was made to classify the data acquired enabling prompt and objective visual acuity evaluation. The purpose of the comparative measurements carried out in the paper was an attempt to calibrate the peak-to-peak VEP curve sections in the visual acuity function.
