Vision Science

Organized by Donald Mastronarde, Professor of the Graduate School, Emeritus Melpomene Distinguished Professor of Classical Languages and Literature

Vision Science is one of those areas where basic research and translational science (the application of the newest discoveries to clinical practice or other real-world applications) go hand in hand. This series highlights a number of fascinating topics pursued in Berkeley’s School of Optometry and Vision Science Program.

The Potential to Improve Vision with Augmented Reality
Emily Cooper, Assistant Professor in School of Optometry; affiliated with Vision Science Program and Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute
Tuesday, December 8, 2pm via Zoom

Today, an estimated 6 million adults in the United States have a visual impairment. The vast majority of these people are not completely blind: they have functional residual vision that they use in their daily life. Can emerging augmented reality technologies be used to provide visual assistance to people with vision loss? Professor Cooper will present work assessing several augmented reality paradigms aimed at assisting key visual functions, such as recognizing objects and navigating buildings.
