Is "the dress" white and gold or blue and black? While some saw one set of colors, others saw the other set--and no one could agree. Now, an expert on visual perception has taken the time to explain the mystery of the dress.
Researchers at the Israel Institute of Technology have recently confirmed the biological purpose of the wiring of the human eye. From a practical standpoint, many scientists have noted how it doesn't quite make the most sense. In vertebrates, the photoreceptors are located behind the eye-resulting i...
New findings published in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease show that patients with Parkinson's disease have difficulties with visual acuity in low-contrast images.
Researchers have created a new prototype of a telescopic contact lens that may lead to better, stronger vision.
Glasses are so last year. Scientists are working on a way to create vision-correcting displays that can compensate for a viewer's visual impairment without the need for them to wear glasses or contact lenses.
Scientists have found that the complex eyes of the mantis shrimp are equipped with optics that actually generate ultraviolet (UV) color vision.
Scientists are taking strides forward when it comes to restoring human vision. They've discovered a way to enhance the regrowth of human corneal tissue using a molecule known as ABCB5 that acts as a marker for hard-to-find limbal stem cells.
Biologists at Johns Hopkins discovered a type of retina cell that is critical for vision. While working with laboratory mice, the researchers found a photoreceptor in the retina that detects contrast between light and dark.
