The Impact of Macular Disease on Pedestrian Detection: A Driving Simulator Evaluation
We describe the design of a driving simulator study to determine the effect of central visual field loss (due to macular disease) on pedestrian detection when driving. Pilot data suggest that a scotoma (blind area) in the central visual field can impair driving by increasing response time to hazardous circumstances.
