14.1 Conclusion / Solution

Our visual system starts to develop before birth and evolves by finding the right coordination between our eyes and our brain, it contains a lot of links:

1. The Facial Masking Alpha-Area: The outer gateway.
2. The Cornea: Refracts light on to the Lens.
3. The Pupil: The inner gateway.

4. The Lens: Focus light onto the Retina

5. The Retina: the Sensor within the Eye.
6. Rod & Cone Cells: The Photoreceptors of the Retina.
7. Ganglion & Bipolar Cells: Collectors of Rods & Cones information.
8. The Optic Nerve: Transmitter of the Retina to the LGN and SC.
9. The LGN: a relay mechanism for processing the visual info to the rest of the brain.
10. Magno & Parvo Layers: Layers of the LGN representing foveal en peripheral view.
11. SC: processing to the brain and control of eye movements.
12. IC: Auditory processing.
13. Primary Visual Cortex: Combining visual information of two eyes.
14. Dorsal - Ventral Stream: Visual Information Processing streams.

15. The Oculomotor System: Coordination of the 12 muscles that move the 2 eyes.

16. Reading / Seeing: The complete Software-like system of information processing.

There are numerous malfunctions possible in our visual system, this makes it difficult to exactly pin-point what the cause of dyslexia is and what it's exact symptomps are as they may differ from one person to an other. Although modern science recently finds more physical proof thanks to modern fMRI-scans and precise microscoppic dissections along with more refined viewing test with eye tracking tools.

As a conclusion one has also to consider the first step of our viewing process the "Facial Masking Alpha-Area" that gives alignment and defines the amount of peripheral view the LGN and V1 has to process, as an important influence on our viewing process, it is the exterior gateway of our sight, styling the way light falls into our eyes and defining how our eyes interact. This made a significant difference when I reduced my peripheral view by using my finger to increase the intersection between my eyes, it felt like balancing a car by putting little bits of lead on the wheels to keep the car from trembling.

Result: The right amount of intersection (facial-masking-alpha-blocking) can lead to a balanced view for people who have a sensitive peripheral view, so they can get Visual Grid (5.2 Visual Grid and the Origin of Patterns in V1). As a practical solution I have placed some tape on a pair of glasses to increase the masking area between my eyes, this gives a more balanced view.

In my experience there are also some psychological effects: by adjusting the visual system we give a different input to the brain, in place of a unsteady vision (during reading) we send clear and precise information to our brain. This gives different feelings that we are used to, such as alignment, precision and a feeling of balance that wasn't noticeable before. See next topic: 14.2 Psychological effects of adjustment of peripheral view.
