This book describes how we see. It is about the eyes, how they capture an image and convert it to the neural messages that result in visual experience. The First Steps in Seeing has been written in a manner that is understandable to all. The number of technical terms has been restricted, and those that are used are illustrated with hundreds of full-colour pictures, icons and graphs.
