Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of visual contrast sensitivity (CS) in children between 5 and 14 years of age. Six spatial frequencies and static (0 Hz) and dynamic (8 Hz) conditions were used at photopic and scotopic luminance levels. The results revealed significant maturation of CS, which reached the adult-like values by 11-12 years of age. The development was more pronounced at low spatial frequencies (
