Blind spot

enTRAIN Vision Fun fact #1

Did you know that there is a point in your visual field that your eyes cannot see? It’s called blind spot, and corresponds to a region of the retina without photoreceptors, in which the axons of the ganglion cells gather to form the optic nerve that exits from the eye.

We do not normally perceive it, thanks to some process in our brain that reconstructs a full image interpolating the blind spot based on the information in its neighbouring and the information coming from the other eye!

Look at the small dot with only your right eye… you’ll see the big black circle vanishing and then reappearing!
