simulations Toward the lower left on the Card and the Chart is a simulation of deuteranopia , a common variety of color blindness. This is from the Greek for "second doesn't see" referring to the second cones in the retina of the eye that respond primarily to green light and are presumed to be defective in this condition. This doesn't mean that greens are invisible to people with deuteranopia. Human vision is complicated. The role of the green cones is less to detect green light than to distinguish it from red. Similarly, when the red cones "don't see" (protanopia), the main consequence is that reds, yellows and greens are indistinguishable. This figure simulates the web-safe colors as they appear in a deuteranopic condition. In most other categories of color blindness, protanopia, protoanomaly and deuteranomaly, the view is very similar but there are subtle differences. In one very rare form, called tritanopia, affecting thirty people in a million, colors appear very differently. The

A personal account of face blindness (prosopagnosia), by a sufferer.Category Science Social Sciences Cognitive Science......The world's only book about face blindness (prosopagnosia), the inabilityto tell people apart. Preface. This is the world's first
This is the world's first (and to date only) book about face blindness. It has been published on the Internet so people in all lands can have access to it readily, and so it can be continuously updated. In these pages, you will find information, much of which is not available anywhere else at this time. Until people with this rare condition began to meet each other on the Internet in mid-1996, assembling this kind of information would not have been possible. Even researchers who have had hopes of specializing in this condition have been frustrated by having seen only a handful of subjects over a lifetime. With the advent of the Internet, face blind people are coming together in heretofore unheard of numbers, and much is being learned with each passing month. This document was first published as "Bill's Face Blindness Pages" in January, 1997, based on information learned in the fall of 1996. Since then, it has grown considerably, to become the document you will now see.

blindness is defined as a visual acuity worse than 20/400, with thebest possible correction, or a visual field of 10 degrees or less.
What Is Vision Impairment? How Common
Is It?

... NCBDDD Home What is vision impairment? Vision impairment means that a person's eyesight cannot be corrected to a "normal" level. It is a loss of vision that makes it hard or impossible to do daily tasks without specialized adaptations. Vision impairment may be caused by a loss of visual acuity, where the eye does not see objects as clearly as usual. It may also be caused by a loss of visual field, where the eye cannot see as wide an area as usual without moving the eyes or turning the head. There are different ways of describing how severe a person's vision loss is. The World Health Organization defines "low vision" as visual acuity between 20/70 and 20/400, with the best possible correction, or a visual field of 20 degrees or less. "Blindness" is defined as a visual acuity worse than 20/400, with the best possible correction, or a visual field of 10 degrees or less. Someone with a visual acuity of 20/70 can see at 20 feet what someone with normal sight can see at 70 feet. Someone with a visual acuity of 20/400 can see at 20 feet what someone with normal sight can see at 400 feet. A normal visual field is about 160-170 degrees horizontally. Vision impairment severity may be categorized differently for certain purposes. In the United States, for example, we use the term "legal blindness" to indicate that a person is eligible for certain education or federal programs. Legal blindness is defined as a visual acuity of 20/200 or worse, with the best possible correction, or a visual field of 20 degrees or less.

The eye and a camera have a lot in common. They both have compound lenses. To focus a camera you move the lens backward or forward. The eye is focused by the ciliary muscle witch stretches the lens, changing its shape. The iris, just like the aperture in a camera, controls the amount of light that enters the eye. The aperture in a camera protects the film from over exposure. The iris in the eye protects the sensitive retina from light damage. The retina is like the film in a camera, covering the back of the eye. It contains millions of photoreceptor cells. These cells convert light rays into electrical signals that are sent to the brain through the optic nerve. The signals from both eyes are combined and converted into sight by the brain.

A Blind Net
A Philosophy Of Blindness
At first glance it might seem strange to have a section about a philosophy of blindness, however I think it is an extremely important topic to cover. The reason is simple, how you view blindness will determine your reaction to being blind or to those of us who are blind. There are as many ":philosophies" of blindness as there are people so obviously I won't be trying to cover EVERY point here. What I want to do is present you with some ideas about what blindness is, a positive outlook if you will, and thereby let you know what blindness DOES NOT NEED TO BE. Whether we think about it or not we all have a philosophy of blindness. It determines how we treat blind people and how we think about ourselves if we are or become blind. Of course one question to answer is who is blind ? Then there's the ":sensitive": question of what do you call someone who is blind ? My short answer would be blind, but God help us some people are offended by that "nasty five letter word." So here are some discussions about different aspects of blindness, incidents that have happened to blind people and the affects of different philosophies of blindness.

Colour blindness Tests. These series of tests are designed to providea quick and accurate assessment of colour vision deficiency.
Colour Blindness Tests These series of tests are designed to provide a quick and accurate assessment of colour vision deficiency How to Use This Test Background Begin How to Use This Test The original card version of this test (by Dr Shinobu Ishihara) was designed to be carried out in a room adequately lit by daylight. The presence of direct sunlight or artificial light may produce some discrepancy in the results because of some alteration in the appearance of shades of colour. This electronic version may also produce some discrepancies as the images have been optimised for web-based delivery and with a monitor resolution of 800x600 and 256 colour display or greater. The results of this test are not to be considered a valid medical test for colour blindness and merely serve to illustrate the tests available. If you have any queries about your own possible colour vision deficiencies consult your local GP. Position yourself about 75cm from your monitor so that the colour test image you are looking at is at eye level, read the description of the image and see what you can see!!

Color blindness Problem Set. She wanted to know if we could help herunderstand how she inherited her color blindness. Audrei's family
Color Blindness Problem Set
This problem set is based on a question received from a woman named Audrei. Audrei is red-green color blind and so are other members of her family. She wanted to know if we could help her understand how she inherited her color blindness. Audrei's family There are 7 children in Audrei's family, three girls and four boys. Two of the girls, Audrei and Liz, are red-green color blind. Caroline has normal color vision. Only two of the boys have been tested. Paul is color blind and David has normal color perception. Andrew and Jason, who have not been tested, may or may not have normal color perception. Barbara, the mother of the seven children, has normal color vision, but Sidney, the father, has the red-green color perception defect. Audrei also has a half brother Stephan. Audrei and Stephen have the same mother, but a different father. Stephan is also red green color blind. Red-green color blindness Red-green color blindness is an X-linked, recessive trait. In this problem set we will establish the pedigree of Audrei's family and see how the color perception defect is passed on from one generation to the next, but first let's look at a brief introduction to sex-linked inheritance. For more complete information about sex-linked inheritance review the Sex-linked Inheritance Problem Set in the Mendelian Genetics section.
