Abstract

The Frostig Figure Ground Test can be a valuable tool in the evaluation of adult low-vision patients. It is easily administered and can give valuable information about the patient's functioning. It provides an observable assessment of the individual sensory-perceptual capacities and has the further advantage of requiring the use of eye-hand coordination. Correlations of performance in this test with other data were analyzed for 79 low-vision patients. The test appears to provide some predictive information about the patient's reading performance, accounting for one-third of the variability of reading speed.
