Image dehazing has been extensively studied, but the performance evaluation method for dehazing techniques has not attracted significant interest. This paper surveys many existing performance evaluation methods of image dehazing. In order to analyze the reliability of the evaluation methods, synthetic hazy images are first reconstructed using the ground-truth color and depth image pairs, and the dehazed images are then compared with the original haze-free images. Meanwhile we also evaluate dehazing algorithms not by the dehazed images` quality but by the performance of computer vision algorithms before/after applying image dehazing. All the aforementioned evaluation methods are analyzed and compared, and research direction for improving the existing methods is discussed.
