Glare testing is useful for simulating situations present in everyday life. Testing is also useful for contact lens evaluations, post surgery (LASIK, PRK) evaluations, and vision diagnosis. Glare problems may not be noticeable in routine eye exams, but may cause problems in everyday life situations. Glare testing can detect signs of diseases, such as cataracts, before conventional testing can. This early detection can lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment.
