Summary
"What do we really know about the workings of the eye?" "The Wisdom of the Eye presents a survey of the major scientific concepts related to the human eye and the visual brain in an easily accessible style. Using anecdotes and a minimum of highly technical language, Dr. David Miller provides an up-to-date treatment on how the visual system works to help us see, interpret what we see, and communicate what we feel. The book covers the basic biology of the eye as well as specialized topics such as infant vision, eye injuries, optical illusions, color vision, visual awareness, and more. The broader theme of "wisdom" is woven throughout the book and shows how the eye and visual brain helped early human societies survive. The book is an excellent resource for scientists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and others interested in how the eye works."--BOOK JACKET
