Paper Abstract

The human visual system is an exquisitely engineered system that can serve as a model and inspiration for the design of many imaging systems. Optics and optical engineering play a key role in developing new techniques and approaches for both the study of human vision and the design of novel imaging systems. For example, advances in optical sensing and imaging have led to important discoveries about retinal image processing, and optical design tools are necessary for improving vision in patients. While advances in optics are improving our understanding of the human visual system, this understanding has also led to improvements in artificial vision systems, image processing algorithms, visual displays, and even modern optical elements and systems.
