Seeing Beyond Lecture Series October 2018: Seeing the world with disordered vision
Hear from guest speakers A/Prof Andrew Anderson and A/Prof Larry Abel on Wednesday 3 October.
The Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences at the University of Melbourne invites you to attend a free lecture "Seeing the world with disordered vision", as part of the 2018 Seeing Beyond lecture series.
This lecture will be presented by:
Associate Professor Andrew Anderson – The influence of the eye (and brain) disorders on artists
Vision is an important tool through which visual artists obtain information about the world. Visual disease and disorders may disturb vision however, and multiple authors have argued that the effects of particular characteristic vision disturbances are evident in the works of several prominent artists. This lecture will review some of these arguments.
Associate Professor Larry Abel - Beyond the double-H test: ocular motor abnormalities real, imagined and in-between
With a focus on vision problems, it is sometimes easy to overlook that the eyes not only see but also move. While some conditions are obvious, others may be more difficult to detect. Others may not have an organic basis, while in other cases a real problem may be “enhanced” for reasons of secondary gain. This seminar will look at a few interesting cases, most of which have come up in our teaching clinic in the last few years.
