The notion that, in older adults, contrast sensitivity impairment increases with decreasing background luminance and that the determinants of this phenomenon are partially neural is not new in the literature (10,26).
Before visual testing the subjects were given 30 minutes to adapt to the background luminance in both installations of lighting with HPS and LEDs.
As it was already mentioned that the size, background luminance, and luminance contrast of the visual target determines its visibility, the age of the observer should be pointed out as well.
The latter is the estimated sensitivity of the pilot's eyes as derived from the measured background luminance.
In general the effect of glare will increase when the source luminance increases, the background luminance decreases, and the angle between the line of sight and the direction of the light source decreases (see, e.
It had to have very carefully controlled lighting levels, partly because many of the screens and optical devices need low background luminance.
The EL display offers excellent contrast and negligible background luminance, which has been found to result in faster recognition and response time.
