Abstract
DCIEM has carried out several studies to examine the suitability of contrast sensitivity for assessing the visual capability of military personnel. The studies include evaluations and different methods of assessing contrast sensitivity, the establishment of norms for aircrew candidates, and evaluations of the relationship between contrast sensitivity and performance on military tasks involving vision. This paper reviews briefly the results of these studies, most of which have been published elsewhere. The results are integrated into a cohesive statement on the measurement of contrast sensitivity in a military population and the minor role that contrast sensitivity tests, in their present state of development, might play in assessing visual ability.
