5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference to the visual system 3 Mar 2013
By mdarsman42 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Covers the physics and performance of the visual system. Not sure about the psychology of vision. Highly recommended for the optical physicist, engineer, or anyone interested in vision.

I love it!

Detailed, chewy and thorough. I might even understand Greek soon; (from enough Greek alphabet usage).

Highly recommended!
