Title: This is a presentation prepared for Arlon meeting, for the case if somebody have questions on Univer

This is a presentation prepared for Arlon
meeting, for the case if somebody have questions
on University of Latvia as a partner of the
projecta) owerviev oin eventual UL
contribution,b) slides from a presentation
Electrically Controlled Eye Occluders in
Vision Science(to kind of obstacles to
simulate light scattering)c) info on ISSP on UL
(some sheets and internet access to info)d) a
scheme presented oin the University conference in
Riga this February, on the topic Vision in
unfavourable conditions.
Objectives.Studies of visual perception and
visual search of stimuli in unfavourable wieving
conditions. Optimizing stimuli spectral and size
characteristics for better recognition.Parameter
s to measure visual acuity, search
time, neural response.
Variable parameters environmental
illumination, weather (fog, rain) subjective
age, pathologies (cataract, eye aberrations
after refractive surgery)vision correction
appliances (goggles, filters)
Scheme of studies Stimuli characterization -
emission, reflection, colour
characteristics. Simulation of viewing
conditions indoors, using special
appliances simulating light scattering,
various illumination and glare conditions,
etc. Sudies of visual information reaching the
eye. Subjective psychophysical and objective
electrophysical response to the visual
Equipment available - Various type of
equipment to assess vision functions - PC
controled electrophysiology equipment
Neurosoft to control
electrically visual response EOG
(electrooculogramms), ERG (electroretinograms),
VEP visual evoked potentials)
- On Ocean Optics based developed
photospectrometer, to charecterize
colour coordinates of reflective stimuli.
- Fast eye tracker SMI.
Equipment valuable for further developments For
current measurements - Minolta (type)
videocolorimeter - Installation of the
darkroom facilities with controllable
illumination. - Upgrading of Ocean Optics
spectrometrer To develop modelling of visual
information transfer - Optical bench, set of
optical element to install optical measurements
scheems - Whitelaser - CCD (cooled)

Some slides from presentation

oculomotoric response - ensuring of correct
binocular correspondence
Experiments using obstacles with controllable
optical parameters allow to make easier visual
science studies minimizing trouble to find
subjects having various eye pathologies at
different development stages, thus avoiding also
a variety of systematic errors.What kinds of
results are obtainable, performing experiments
using an device with controllable optical
characteristics placed in front of the
eye?First, investigator is trying to look into
the eye, to see what is the influence of the
obstacle onto the retinal image. Secondly
objective measurements of the neural activity
using different diagnostic techniques. Thirds
psychophysical evaluation of different
characteristics of the subject visual response
(acuity, contrast sensitivity, colour
discrimination, stereovision threshold, etc.)
Image blurring control. - simulation of
artificial cataract Cataract develops
practically to all people with their age.
In the non-pathalogical cases that becomes
apparent as small changes in the
colour transfer, and in image resolution.
For pathological cases up to a full
loss of visual function,
curable by extraction of the cataract lens and
replacement with the
intraocular (IOL) lens. Other scientific
interests - how various degree of blurring
affects different aspects of visual response in
order to find subjective and objective criteria
for early cataract diagnostics. Problems size
effects and refractive indices differences of the
scatterers in the eye and in the artificial
cataract obstacle, wavelength dependencies of the
scattered light.

Eye model with artificial cataractDiffraction

eye formed by a double slit (slit separation -
1mm, l 633 nm, corresponding angular
resolution - 2.2 arc min). E 0 (1) 8.4 kV/cm

In other experiments in order to simulate
artificial cataract we used polymer dispersed

Spectral characteristics of attenuation of
directly transmitted light through PDLC cell

front of camera lens (U 0 V) - right side

Time dependencies of CRT visual stimuli
intensities looking through the PDLC cell
obtained by scanning CCD pictures of CRT. Applied
sinusoidal 30V voltage (30 Hz) makes the cell
transparent. Blue phosphor is attenuated at the
highest degree, besides it has the fastest
emission decay, that is observable within the
area where electron beam scans screen when CCD
shutter is closed.
Eye visual performance tests various colour
Landolt C visual acuity optotype, and screen for
displaying colour contrast sensitivity test
Dependence of the PLDC cell transmittance vs.
applied AC voltage, and corresponding visual
acuity of human eye looking through the cell on
various colour visual acuity charts
Eye retina Distribution of L cones (red), M cones
(green) and S cones (blue) within the central
part of fovea. One can see the lack of S cones
in the middle and greater distance between S
cones as compared with M and L cones.
Spectral sensitivity of cones (linear and log
scales) Smith Pokorny Cone sensitivity curves
Visual evoked potentials, when red-black (a) and
green-black (b) check board reversals are
demonstrated (monocular) through PLDC cell with
different AC voltage applied. Two maxima -
negative N80 and positive P100 occur with delay
ca. 80 and 100ms, respectively, after stimuli
reversal. VEP amplitude (the potential
difference between two maxima points) decreases
at higher scattering extent (c) for red (curve 1)
and green (curve 2) stimuli.
