blind spots. human eyes have a blind spot when the optic nerve exits the back in the eye. this area has no light receptors because the nerve is in the way you can find your blind spot with this test. look at the red cross on the left with your right eye closing your left eye, move your head slowly closer and further away quot;So weirdquot; at a certain distance the blue dot on the right will disappear
pause if you need to, you've just found your blind spot After images, stare at the white dot in the center of the image and try not to blink. your eyes have three types of cones or color receptors red, green and blue. after images appear when you stare at a particular color for too long and those color receptors get tired. so when you suddenly switch to looking at a black and white image
those tired receptors aren't working as well this leaves an afterimage of the reverse colors. See your veins. blood vessels and veins feed the photosensitive cells in your eye to keep them alive these blood vessels cast shadows on your retina here's how you can see those veins. poke a small hole in a post it note or piece of paper hold that against a bright white background like your computer screen
look to the hole while shaking the postit slightly you should see a shadowy network online sort of like the veins a leaf these are the veins in your eye quot;Oh, wowquot; Gross. dominant eyes most people have a dominant eyes, I'm meaning that one eye gives more priority information than the other eighty percent of people are right eye dominant see which is your dominant eye. make a triangle between your thumbs and
forefingers With both eyes open, look at an object several feet away Center the object inside the triangle, close one eye and then the other. your dominant eye will look like this and your nondominant eye it will look like this. it's almost visionary. see what I did there.
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
