 Abstract
Purpose: This study was aimed to investigate effects of breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) increase on visual field and readable visual field. Methods: 23 males in 20s (average age , body mass index (BMI) ) were selected and administered the amount of alcohol to reach 0.05% and 0.08% BrAC calculated by BAC (blood alcohol concentration) Dosing Software program. Then, visual field and readable visual field test with Vision Disk were conducted. Results: Visual field are measured as , , and (p=0.000) and readable visual field as , , (p=0.006) in 0.00%, 0.05% and 0.08% BrAC respectively. As breath alcohol concentration increased, both visual field and readable visual field decreased. Conclusions: BrAC increase with drinking could be the cause of safety accident by decreasing visual field and readable visual field, it is necessary to raise awareness.
