Eye Floaters What is Eye Floaters Symptoms and Treatment For Eye Floaters
For us to see the world around us lightenters the front of the eye in passes through the vitreous beforeit's focused on the retina the vitreous is the clear gel like fluidinside the eye the retina is the lightsensitive tissuelining the back of the eye frequently tiny clumps of cells forminside the jail like the Trias the shadows these cons cast on thereading are what we perceive as floaters make an appearance dots circles lines clouds or cobwebs in the field divisionfloaters are more common as we reach
middle age time in our life in the vitreous gel canstart to thicken and shrank forming clumps or strandssometimes the shrinking at the vitreous can create tiny tears in the retina as pulls away from the wall of the I ifthese tears bleed new floaters may appear with flashes thevitreous gel is rubbing or pulling up the retina moving it slightly from its normalposition lining the back of the eye

for several days after surgery the gas bubble willeventually disappear laser or cry or therapy is also added toseal the retinal tear back in place the track to me is a surgery where thevitreous gel that is pulling on the retina is removed from the I and replaced witha gas bubble overtime fluid naturally replaces thisgas bubble in select cases silicon oil is usedinstead of gas
What Is The Resolution Of The Eye
Hey, Vsauce. Michael here. I am at the White House, in America's capital, Washington, D.C. America makes a lot offeature films every year Hollywood. But they don't make the mostfeature films every year. Nigeria makes more. But the country that makes the mostfilms every single year is India. Every two years, the country of India fills up enough film with uniquefeature films that stretch all the way from this city,Mumbai, to where I live,
in London. That's double what Hollywoodproduces in two years. That is a lot of movies, but is reallife a movieé I've discussed the framerate of the human eye before but how does the resolution of the human eye compare to a camera or screené VHS, LaserDisc, DVD, Bluray, IMAX. Numbers like these arepixel dimensions. When multiplied they tell us the total number of pictureelements an image is made up of.
A figure often used to describe digitalcameras. It might sound like more is better, but to be sure numberslike 1920 by 1080 are not resolutions per se.More pixels is only part of the equation. Resolution is about distinguishing fine details and that depends on a lot of other factors. For instance, the amount of light, thesize of the sensors, what the millions of pixels are actuallyencoding and how close the subject is. I mean, up close
Salvador Dali's painting of his wifelooking at the Mediterranean can be resolved into boxes. But from a far, well, it's Abraham Lincoln. For crying outloud, on a small enough screen from far enough away, low and high,socalled resolutions on screens, aren't even resolved differently from one another by your eye. How different nearby pixels are from oneanother also matters. This is called spatial resolution.
For instance, if I go outoffocus the number of pixels in the tutorial framestays the same but you can't resolve as much detail. Now, with all this in mind we can still compare human vision to a digital image,by asking a better question. Assuming everything else is optimal, howmany pixels would you need to make an image on a screen large enough to fillyour entire field of view look like real life, without anydetectable pixelationé Now we are getting somewhere.
Kind of. The analogy is still crudy because a camera snaps an entire frameat once, whereas our eyes move around. The brain amalgamates their constant stream of informationinto what we call vision sight. In fact, the image created by theeyeball alone during a single glance would hardly even be acceptable on abroken TV screen. We think our eyes create images like this pictureGuy took of me with a camera. But for one thing, unlike a camera,you've got some stuff
Is Your Red The Same as My Red
Hey, Vsauce. Michael here. This appears blue. This appears yellow.And this appears green. Those of us with normal color vision can probably agree.But that doesn't change the fact that color is an illusion. Color, as we know it, does not exist in theoutside world, beyond us, like gravity or protons do. Instead, color is created insideour heads. Our brains convert a certain range of the electromagnetic spectrum into color.I can measure the wavelength of radiation, but I can't measure or observethe experience of a color inside your mind. So, how do I know that when you and me lookat a strawberry, and, in my brain, this perception
occurs, which I call quot;red,quot; that, in yourbrain, a perception like this doesn't occur, which you have, of course, also learned tocall red. We both call it red. We communicate effectively and walk away, never knowing justhow different each of our internal experiences really were. Of course, we already know that not everybodysees color in exactly the same way. One example would be color blindness. But we can diagnoseand discuss these differences because people with the conditions fail to see things that most of us can. Conceivably though, there could be ways ofseeing that we use that cause colors to look
differently in different people's minds, withoutaltering their performances on any tests we could come up with. Of course, if that were the case, wouldn'tsome people think other colors look better than othersé Or that some colors were morecomplimentary of othersé Well, yeah, but doesn't that already happené This matters because it shows how fundamentally,in terms of our perceptions, we are all alone in our minds. Let's say I met an alien from a far away solarsystem who, lucky enough, could speak English,
but had never, and could never, feel pain.I could explain to the alien that pain is sent through A delta and C fibers to the spinalchord. The alien could learn every single cell and pathway and process and chemicalinvolved in the feeling of pain. The alien could pass a biology exam about pain andbelieve that pain, to us, generally is a bad thing. But no matter how much he learned, the alienwould never actually feel pain. Philosophers call these ineffable, raw feelings quot;Qualia.quot;And our inability to connect physical phenomenon to these raw feelings, our inability to explainand share our own internal qualia is known
as the quot;Explanatory Gap.quot; This gap is confrontedwhen describing color to someone who's been blind their entire life. Tommy Edison has never been able to see.He has a YouTube channel where he describes what being blind is like. It's an amazing channel.In one tutorial he talks about colors and how strange and foreign of a concept it seemsto him. Sighted people try to explain, for instance, that red is quot;hot,quot; and blue is quot;cold.quot;But to someone who has never seen a single color, that just seems weird. And, as he explains,it has never caused him to finally see a color. Some philosophers, like Daniel Dennett, arguethat qualia may be private and ineffable simply
because of a failure of our own language,not because they are necessarily always going to be impossible to share. There may be an alien race that communicatesin a language that causes colors to appear in your brain without your retina having tobe involved at all. Or without you having to have ever needed to actually see the coloryourself. Perhaps, even in English, he says, given millions and billions of words usedin just the right way, it may be possible to adequately describe a color such that ablind person could see it for the first time. Or you could figure out that, onceandforall,yes or no, in fact, you and your friend
