A survey of 264 articles, investigating basic visual functioning indicates that nearly 72% do not report any visual screening of subjects. This data is compared with actual acuity testing of 111 avowedly visually “normal” observers, who did not wear corrective lenses, to point out the necessity of prescreening subjects in any paradigm where visual stimuli are to be used.
