Abstract:

Many factors which could affect visual acuity VA with night vision goggles NVGs already have been studied, e.g., night sky condition and target contrast Levine and Rash, 1989a and 1989b Wiley, 1989 Kotulak and Rash, 1992 , NVG generation Miller et al., 1984 Kotulak and Rash, 1992, nuclear flashblindness protection Levine and Rash, 1989a and 1989b, chemical protective masks Miller et al., 1989 Donohue-Perry, Riegler, and Hausman, 1990, signal-to-noise ratio Riegler et al., 1991, interpupillary distance misadjustment King and morse, 1992, and instrument myopia Kotulak and Morse, 1992, 1994a, and 1994b Kotulak, Morse, and Wiley, 1993. Another factor which could influence NVG VA is decreased unaided VA, i.e., VA without NVGs however, relatively little is known about it.
