Human Eye Facts | Q&A # 16


Hi and welcome to our Q&A session. The human eye is an amazing creation with many
intricate processes and details. There are common misconceptions about
the way our eyes process light and I am here to share some facts with you about our eyes. Some people think that light is detected in
our eyes through the front of the retina. The light actually travels through the back of the retina away from the visual scene. Light goes through multiple layers of neural
network and blood vessels to reach the photoreceptors. Another misconception is that the retina detects
red green and blue color receptors like a television or LCD monitor. However, the retina actually detects yellow-green
and the “green” receptor detects blue-green. The brain later differentiates these signals
into the color red later. Our peripheral vision is very low resolution
and most of our color receptors are only at the center. If you pay attention to your blurry periphery, your eye will moves to fill in the details before you discover it
was missing. And here is the fun fact: Our visual image is actually split down the
middle. So each side of the brain receives only half
of the image we are looking at. The brain distort the image, which makes it going into high resolution, so we see the full picture with clarity. If you have any questions or comments, post
them below! You can also send us a message through Facebook
