This paper proposes a quantitative method for evaluation of disability glare, considering a scotopic-mesopic range and transient glare. Subjects had to compare brightness of two uniform luminance fields sequentially displayed, one of which was presented under glare conditions. The observer reported which field was brighter with respect to one another. A forced choice paradigm using the method of constant stimuli was adopted to determine the luminance corresponding to the perceptual matching luminance. The results show a non linear effect of the glare illuminance on the matching luminance and a non significant dependence with the luminance reference. We propose an empirical equation to calculate the glare effect. Scattered light can explain the results considering simultaneous contrast.
