Glaucoma, eye movements, and laboratory-based hazard detection

Viewed: 9

It has been suggested that an important reason behind the elevated crash rates of older drivers with glaucomatous visual impairment is their reduced capacity to detect traffic hazards due to their visual deficits, however, the hazard detection ability of this group of drivers has yet to be investigated. 

This study examined the laboratory-baesd hazard detection performance of older drivers with glaucomatous visual impairment, in comparison to age-matched controls. In addition, the associated eye movement patterns while performing the hazard detection task were explored, which would provide a better understanding of the road scanning behaviour of this group od drivers.

This dataset contains the measures of laboratory-based hazard response time, eye movement patterns, visual function, and driving characteristics of 30 older drivers with glaucomatous visual impairment and 25 age-matched controls.
