optic neuritis: Color and contrast sensitivity

Fifteen patients with monocular optic neuritis were evaluated with
monocular and binocular tests of contrast sensitivity, acuity, color
vision, stereoacuity, binocular rivalry, and pupillary function. Averaged
across patients, significant binocular summation was found for contrast
sensitivity. Significant summation was not found for the Farnsworth_Munsell
100-Hue test. The presence and degree of binocular summation for the
Farnsworth_Munsell 100-Hue test was positively corerlated with the degree
of impairment on that test. Subjects who made the number
of errors also showed the greatest binocular advantage. Binocular summation
for contrast sensitivity was not correlated with summation for color vision.
