Paper Abstract

The human eyes' visual system interprets the information from the visible light in order to build a representation of the world surrounding the body. It derives color by comparing the responses to light from the three types of photoreceptor cones in the eyes. These long medium and short cones are sensitive to blue, green and red portions of the visible spectrum. We simulate the color vision for the normal eyes. We see the effects of the dyes, filters, glasses and windows on color perception when the test image is illuminated with the D65 light sources. In addition to colors' perception, the human eyes can suffer from diseases and disorders. The eye can be seen as an optical instrument which has its own eye print. We present aspects of some nowadays methods and technologies which can capture and correct the human eyes' wavefront aberrations. We focus our attention to Siedel aberrations formula, Zenike polynomials, Shack-Hartmann Sensor, LASIK, interferograms fringes aberrations and Talbot effect.
