The disappearance of steadily fixated visual test objects.
A system has been devised for causing an image to remain at one point on the retina regardless of eye movements. A beam of light, reflected from a plane mirror on a contact lens, is used to projectExpand

Relation of increment thresholds to brightness and luminance.
Under ordinary conditions, both the brightness and the increment threshold of an illuminated disk vary directly with its luminance. However, when the disk is surrounded by an annulus more intenseExpand

Analysis of eye movements during monocular and binocular fixation.
Recordings of the horizontal component of movements of the eyes were made during monocular and binocular fixation. The variation in the vergence of the eyes over time was found to be of the sameExpand
