Overview

I read it and greatly enjoyed it. I like the way the author compares the eye and camera. This is done much more successfully than that by many previous authors. It is the sort of book which many of our first year optometry students might benefit from - Dr John Saunders, Visiting Lecturer, Optometry and Visual Science, City University, London.

We think we see the world in splendid detail, in glorious color, in three dimensions and full motion. But in reality, we only see detail over a tiny area, we are legally blind 25 degrees off center, and we are completely blind for up to half the time our eyes are open!

Using striking visual illusions, we demonstrate the eye's huge limitations compared with a modern digital camera - and then show how Nature splendidly overcomes these limitations to give us the ultimate illusion of near-perfect sight, that is well matched to our survival in the real, living world.
