Eyes and Vision Facts and Information

 

 Our vision is one of the most important things our brain does. In fact, some studies show that perhaps the biggest operation of the brain is the one involving seeing. Vision is so interesting because not only do our eyes do an amazing feat of absorbing light and encoding information into our brains, but our brains themselves play with that information a lot in order to give us the logical visual world we see around us. Up stays up, down stays down, colors stay the same (unless you're really drunk). In this collection, you have the opportunity to learn all about eyes and vision. It's a fascinating read, as well as some insightful videos.

According to the above website, around 0.5% of women (1 in every 200) and 8% of men (1 in every 12) suffer from some form of CVD. There are different variations of vision deficiency, such as Protanopia (which makes everything seem greener), Deuteranomalia (which makes everything look a little faded), Tritanopia (greenish-pink tones), and Monochromacy (total color blindness).
