After 10-14 years, 14 older adults were retested to assess changes in Vonly ability and VE. Results showed no significant declines, however, strong correlations were found between previous V-only performance and current Vonly performance, as well as between previous VE and current VE, although not as strong. Age and PTA were not predictors of changes in lipreading or VE. In addition, older adults perform less well on auditory-only tasks over time.
