Sample text

Achromatopsia (best known as cone dystrophy) is a genetically transmitted disorder that affects colour vision and visual acuity. In adults, long-standing diabetes can affect the growth of blood vessels in the eye, with complications such as retinal detachment, glaucoma and cataracts. Disorders of the aqueous humour Glaucoma impairs vision as a result of damage from increasing pressure within the eye. Pressure is created by a build up of aqueous humour, which normally drains away, leading to compression of the blood vessels supplying the optic nerve, so that nerve fibres degenerate.

White objects, in contrast, reflect all colour wavelengths. Refraction Another property of light energy we need to remind ourselves about is refraction, the change in direction of light when it passes from one transparent medium to another of different optical density, demonstrated, for example, by the apparent bending of a ruler placed in a tumbler of water. The eye refracts light so that it focuses to form a sharp image on the retina. The cornea is responsible for starting this process, while accommodation by the lens, changing its shape to increase light refraction, enables us to see fine detail sharply.

Cones respond to brightness and colour, and are more adept at detecting fine detail. Cones require more light than rods to be activated and contain pigments that respond to different light wavelengths (green, red or blue). Cones make possible high definition colour vision in bright light. 31 CHILDREN WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS The photosensitivity of the retina varies over its surface. The blindspot is the point at which the optic nerve leaves the eyeball; this has no photoreceptors. The area of clearest vision is the macula.
