Download Citation on ResearchGate | Stiles-Crawford Apodization | The Stiles- Crawford effect is treated as an apodization in the plane of the entrance pupil of. At both test points, photopic and scotopic (one subject) Stiles-Crawford function peaks were contained within the pupillary bound and approximated the center of . This study analyses the way that the disc structure of the cone outer segment of the human retina affects light propagation through the cones, and how it.

Retrieved from ” https: Electromagnetic analysis of light rays incident on a model human cone revealed that the Stiles—Crawford evecto is explained by the shape, size, and refractive indices of the various parts of cone photoreceptors, [4] which are roughly oriented towards the center of the pupil.

Due to the complexity of a single cone photoreceptor and the layers of the retina which lie ahead of the cone photoreceptor on the light path, as well as the randomness associated with the distribution and orientation of cone photoreceptors, it is extremely difficult to fully model all of the factors which may affect the production of the visual stimulus in an eye.

Privacy Terms of Use. The Stiles—Crawford effect of the second kind is the phenomenon where the observed color of monochromatic light entering the eye near the edge of the pupil is different compared to that for the same wavelength light entering near the center of the pupil, regardless of the overall intensities of the two lights.

This possibility was ruled out because variations in light extinction along different light paths through the pupil do not account for the significant crawfoed in the luminance efficiency.

Bedell and Jay M. We report psychophysical studies of receptor orientation and directional sensitivity in a subject whose right pupil is displaced nearly 3 mm nasally as a result of injury sustained 25 years ago.

The two beams alternated in time, and the subject was instructed to adjust the intensity of the wider beam until minimum flicker was observed, thus minimizing the difference in the visual stimulus between to the two beams.

A 10 7 Measurements of the intensities of light transmission through the central foveola for the incident angles 0 and 10 degrees resemble the relative luminance efficiency for narrow light bundles as a function of the location where the beam enters the pupil as reported by Stiles and Crawford.

However, due to simplicity of the cone models and the lack of accurate knowledge of the optical parameters of the human cone cell used in the electromagnetic analysis, it is unclear whether other factors such as the photopigment concentrations [7] may contribute to the Stiles—Crawford effect.

The peripheral test point intercepted the retina between the optic nerve head and the ora serrata.

Rods showed a sensitivity pattern decentered like that of the cones, with a greatest observed sensitivity loss of 0. Figure files are available to subscribers only.
