CONTRAST SENSITIVITY

the gauging of spatial resolution based upon a person's potential to identify slight distinctions in light and dark color or shading in an item of an unchanging girth and length. Recognition is impacted by the girth and length of different aspects and is typically assessed making use of a grating of changing light and dark bars, being identified by the lowest contrast needed to differentiate that there is a bar trend instead of a standard screen.
