Special issue on Vision and road safety

This issue is dedicated to Vision and road safety and has open access on the Wiley Online Library website.

Professor Joanne Wood and Dr Alex Black review the evidence to support the claim that alternative vision tests including contrast sensitivity, visual fields and motion sensitivity are more predictive of driving ability and safety than visual acuity.

There’s an article on making pedestrians conspicuous at night. Retroreflective markings on their extremities, highlighting their ‘biological motion’, are more effective than markings on their torsos.

Eye-care practitioners are often required to make recommendations regarding their patients' visual fitness for driving, including patients with visual impairment. Another article reports on a study aimed at understanding the perspectives and management strategies adopted by Australian optometrists regarding driving for their patients with central visual impairment.


The latest issues and archives of Clinical and Experimental Optometry are available on the Wiley Online Library. Interactive HTML and PDF formats, and the Apps for iOS or Android, provide a rich viewing experience with instant access to breaking research.
