Discover how your eyes are just the beginning of your complex visual system with museum specialists from the Truhlsen-Marmor Museum of the Eye and vision scientists from the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute. Your brain plays an important role in the visual system, but it can sometimes be tricked into seeing things that aren’t there. We will show you some of the museum’s medical artifacts and guide you through interactive hands-on (and eyes-on) activities. Explore the anatomy of your eyes, binocular vision, and the eye-brain connection.
