Of all our senses, vision is the most important: we perceive the world mostly through our eyes. Even though light intensity varies by a factor of 10 million between the brightest snowy day and a starlit night, our eyes and visual system adapt to these intensity changes. We can discriminate between thousands of hues and shades of color. Our eyes are set in our heads in such a way that each eye sees almost the same visual field, making depth perception possible.
