  • The ability to see clear images, to resolve fine spatial detail in faint objects, to see and appreciate small color differences, to discriminate motion direction and to detect rapidly flickering lights over a very large range of natural illumination is something we often take for granted. Good vision is our expectation, but as we grow older, we become aware of very gradual visual deficits that in some cases can lead to severe loss of vision. These deficits are often caused by changes in the… CONTINUE READING
