Abstract
TESTS OF VISUAL FUNCTION SERVE AS AN IMPORTANT INDEX OF AVIATORS' VISUAL ABILITIES. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE MANY TESTS OF VISUAL ABILITY, THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED IN A SINGLE VOLUME BUT ARE SCATTERED IN VARIOUS TEXTS AND JOURNALS. A CATALOGUE OF VISION TESTS, CONTAINING A DESCRIPTION OF EACH TEST, AS WELL AS INFORMATION ON THE MANUFACTURER AND COST, WOULD BE A USEFUL FOOL WHEN UPDATING THE VISION STANDARDS FOR ARMY AVIATORS. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO COLLECT, ORGANIZE, AND COMPILE PERTINENT INFORMATION CONCERNING TESTS OF HUMAN VISUAL FUNCTIONING. A LITERATURE REVIEW WILL BE CONDUCTED TO SEARCH FOR CLINICAL, PSYCHOPHYSICAL, AND PHYSIOLOGICAL RESEARCH METHODS. THIS WILL BE SUPPORTED AND SUPPLEMENTED BY INTERVIEWS WITH PROMINENT RESEARCHERS, BOTH IN UNIVERSITIES AND INDUSTRY.
