Hemianopic field loss (HFL) is the loss of half the field of vision on the same side in both eyes. The most common causes are stroke and traumatic brain injury. People with HFL are permitted to drive in some states in the US and some countries in Europe (under an exceptional case provision). However, drivers with HFL may have difficulty seeing hazards on the side of the field loss, which is a safety concern. In this talk I will provide an overview of studies which have used the safe, controlled, repeatable environment of a driving simulator to evaluate the effects of HFL on detection of potential hazards and to quantify the effects of devices (peripheral prism glasses and driver assistance systems) to assist with hazard detection
