Optical Properties of the Retinal Receptors

  title={Optical Properties of the Retinal Receptors},
  author={Melissa Enoch},
In the study of receptor optics, the current era originates with the discovery of retinal directional sensitivity by Stiles and Crawford in 1933. In recent years the essential complexities of receptor-optical properties have been revealed. These properties give rise to directional sensitivity, hue, saturation, and resolution changes. They have been employed to separate photopic from scotopic functions, and to indicate the status of receptor-orientation properties. In some patients exhibiting… CONTINUE READING
