AbstractConventional photometric measurements account for neither the degree and orientation of polarization reflected from surfaces nor the dichroic-birefringent nature of the human eye. Preliminary analyses indicate that the variability associated with visual performance data can be reduced by accounting for these polarizaiton effects. Reduction in variability is extremely small, however, indicating that it might not be practical to account for these polarization effects in such experiments. Indirect evidence for eye movements is also provided by the analyses.
