Contrast thresholds for a range of different spatial frequencies were compared with "acuity" tests for 10 subjects with uniocular senile cataract. The results indicate that the magnitude and extent of the intra-resolution limit abnormality vary dramatically in cataract subjects and that, for some subjects, vision is abnormal for objects of all sizes. This finding indicates that the present acuity evaluation of vision with cataracts is inadequate because, in some cases, it grossly overestimates the nature of the visual world of the cataract patient.
