Searching for unity: Real-world versus item-based visual search in age-related eye disease

  • David P. Crabb (a1) and Deanna J. Taylor (a1)

Abstract

When studying visual search, item-based approaches using synthetic targets and distractors limit the real-world applicability of results. Everyday visual search can be impaired in patients with common eye diseases like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. We highlight some results in the literature that suggest assessment of real-word search tasks in these patients could be clinically useful.
