Purpose: Measurement of glare and straylight may give important information about the visual capacity of elderly drivers and drivers with cataract. However, the measurement technique must be adequate. Current techniques have been insufficiently investigated on this issue. We evaluated several test devices: the Nyktotest and Mesotest (both for measurement of glare), the Straylight meter, as well as a new computer implemented Straylight meter.
