Visionary:  A Dictionary for the Study of Vision

Visionary: A Dictionary for the Study of Vision

Written and Maintained by Dr. Lars Liden of the Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University, the Visionary is just what it says. Users can click on any letter and find a list of important terms, some with illustrations as well as links to related terms. The Visionary includes three appendices for the Cortical Areas, Grossberg, and Marr. Overall, this site would be a useful tool for both students and instructors in the fields of optometry, ophthalmology, or any optic-related vocation.
