Introduction Of Sepia Tones To The Current View Options In Medical Imaging
It has been established that the human eye sees color best but it is influenced by many factors. Issues such as chromatic aberration of the eye certainly impact on human perception as does brightness fatigue from the high-energy end of the spectrum…blue and ultraviolet light. Also blue light is inherently scattered more and because of chromatic aberration focuses in front of the retina creating a “blue defocus often estimated at the Snellen equivalent of 20/40”. The following from http://www.telescope-optics.net/eye_chromatism.htm illustrates both the proposed longitudinal and lateral eye chromatism.
