Vision Science

(Back to Eyes On Eye Care)

"What is vision science?" I hear you ask. Vision science is exactly what it says, the scientific investigation of vision and how we see. It incorporates all studies involving vision; not limited to how humans and non-human organisms (organic or otherwise) process visual information, how our conscious and subconscious minds perceive visual input and how we can exploit our visual perceptions to improve communication or even for fun (such as in optical/visual illusions).
