Abstract
Background: We assessed the effects of aging on visual function and optical quality in a healthy adult population and provide reference values for different age ranges. Methods: We conducted a prospective study with 198 healthy volunteers from31 to 70 years of age. The visual acuity (VA) and contrast sensitivity (CS) at 3, 6, 12 and 18cycles per degree (cpd) frequencies were assessed, together with values of optical quality and intraocular scatter- ing obtained with a double-pass system(Optical...
