please drop me a line)
AV1  Object is seen with averted vision, however, once found, the object could 
occasionally be seen with direct vision.
AV2  Object is seen only with averted vision, however, it is held steady.
AV3  Object is only occasionally seen with averted vision as it “comes & goes” 
with the seeing conditions. In this case the object is seen more than 50% of the time.

the seeing conditions. In this case the object is seen less than 50% of the time.
