Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system

American Journal of Ophthalmology 92(6): 863-864

Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system

A soft contact lens with a central depression was used into which a hard contact lens can be fitted to simulate conditions that cause decreased [human] visual acuity. This piggyback system can simulate central scotoma, various peripheral field defects, and opacities of the media.
