  Glare
And the sensitivity to glare is amplified as scattering in cornea or lens increases.
Glare is related to the degree of diminution of vision in case of nuclear and cortical cataract but not in posterior subcapsular cataract where it is disproportionately higher.
To conclude, glare is an important factor in visual disability with anterior segment disease and sensitivity tests are useful in evaluating the visual problems of a patient with early cataract.

 Glare | Human Factors | Research Topics | LRC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Glare is the sensation produced by a light source that is sufficiently greater than the light level to which a person's eyes are adapted.
Glare causes annoyance, discomfort, or loss in visual performance and visibility.
Another common source of glare is light shining through a window onto a television screen.

 OpenClinical: GLARE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
GLARE has been built within a 7-year project with Azienda Ospedaliera San Giovanni Battista in Turin (one of the largest hospitals in Italy) and has been successfully tested on clinical guidelines in different domains, including bladder cancer, reflux esophagitis, and heart failure.
The GLARE (Guideline Acquisition, Representation and Execution) system addresses these issues by providing a facility for automatic resource-based adaptation of guidelines to the specific context of application, and by providing a modular architecture in which only limited and well-localised changes are needed to integrate the system with the HIS at hand.
GLARE is unique in its approach to supporting the decision-making process of users/physicians faced with various alternatives in the guidelines.

 Discomfort Glare   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
However, the glare source used in Howarth et al.’s study was placed at a distance of 30 cm from subject’s eyes, and there is a possibility that the effect of accommodation might have affected the power spectrum of hippus (it has been shown that accommodation to near stimuli affects pupillary responses; Fry, 1991).
The glare stimulus was a projector fitted with a 150 W tungsten lamp, which was directed towards the face of the subject.
Before each presentation of the glare stimulus, the spontaneous EMG activity (noise) was sampled for 4 seconds with the subject in a relaxed state.

 NHTSA Notice: Glare from Headlamps and other Front Mounted Lamps - FMVSS 108   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Glare associated with daytime running lamps is the subject of an ongoing rulemaking intended to reduce their intensity (see 63 FR 42348, Docket NHTSA-98-4124 Notice 1.) This notice does not address daytime running lamps; it does address headlamps and other front-of-vehicle roadway illumination lamps that are used primarily at night.
For example, there were many variants of glare reducing devices, before lower and upper beams became the norm, that were achieved by a mechanical metal shield that was rotated into place in front of the bulb within the headlamp, typically by using a driver actuated cable.
The oncoming drivers experience transient glare because of the rate of closure speed, the quickly widening angle from the observer to the glare source, and the transient nature of hills and curves.

 Glare
Glare has more than a dozen categories and definitions in lighting engineering but there are just 4 that we need to know about for eyeglasses and eye sight.
Distracting glare occurs when light reflects from the lens surface or from within the lens, is caused by sources such as street lights or car headlights at night, and results in squinting and eye fatigue.
Lastly, AR coating on the back surface of polarized lenses eliminates distracting glare and in that way all forms of glare are addressed in one pair of sunglasses.

 Disability glare
This is usually of little importance except when the glare source is relatively intense and near the line of sight Under these conditions, the scattered light is called "disability glare" because it can noticeably interfere with the visual task.
Disability glare may be measured in terms of an equivalent veiling illumination, a uniform light that shines on the retina and reduces the contrasts of the image.
Disability glare, however, is not a common problem in the office environment, where light levels are generally uniform.

 oe magazine - shedding light on GLARE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Disability glare refers to a luminous veil over the field of view caused by scattered light in the eye that reduces contrasts in the visual scene and degrades visual performance.
Recent data collected by the LRC during field studies conducted for NHTSA has shown that the spectral power distribution of oncoming headlamps makes no significant difference in terms of their effect on the detection of targets, whether the targets are near or far from the line of sight.
One hypothesis is that short-wavelength cones (which have peak spectral sensitivity at 440 nm) play some role in discomfort glare, since ratings of discomfort are highly correlated with the energy from a glare source near 440 nm.

 What is Glare?
Glare is not unique to a specific light source or headlamp system.
Advanced lighting technologies, such as Xenon or Xenon lights, often are incorrectly related to the issue of "glare." News coverage often inaccurately reports the source for increased glare and, as a result, there is confusion about the benefits of new lighting technologies.
Glare is the result of lighting that causes visual discomfort and a diminished ability to see the environment.

 Light pollution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Glare is the result of excessive contrast between bright and dark areas in the field of view.
Glare is particularly an issue in road safety, as bright and/or badly shielded lights around roads may partially blind drivers or pedestrians unexpectedly, and contribute to accidents.
Full cutoff fixtures usually prevent luminaries from being directly visible, so the effects of glare may also be reduced by the nature of their design.

Ammons was a master of the concise lyric, the witty aphorism, and the unusual nature narrative: a dialogue between a man and a mountain, for example.
But he shines in his long poems, his book-length poems, of which "Glare" is the final example.
The long poem (of which 'Glare' is a very special example) has tripped-up many a gifted poet, but this has the sustained brilliance of someone competely at home with the form, someone who knows how to set poetic pace and rhythm to fit the task in hand.
