A new title for the blog! “Science hidden in plain Sight!”
I hope you like it. I changed it for a couple of reasons. When I first started this blog in 2008, I wasn’t sure of where I was going with it. Everything I wrote about back then was very patient-directed. I concentrated on answering questions related to optometry and eye health. While I still find writing about those areas valuable, I have been particularly enjoying exploring the fundamentals of vision science and how we see and interpret the world around us. This is reflected in the articles I have had the privilege of contributing to Scientific American’s guest blog as well as my previous works here like, Why is the Sky Blue?, Visions of the World’s most famous Artist, Eye Contact: What are you Saying with your Eyes? and One of the Greatest Lies ever told: Carrots.
So, in short, I have finally found my way. I know where I want to go with this blog. I will, at times, still write on topics regarding patient care and eye health, but my primary focus will become what I find interesting in the world and its relation to vision! So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride, the journey has really just begun!
