Find your blind spot!! (Without squishing your eyeball!)

     While attempting to find our blind spots in class, by poking the sides of our eyes, I remembered a much easier way to find your blind spot and figured would make a great blog topic.

     As we learned in class, the blind spot found within your eye is the area within the retina that the optic nerve enters the inner eye. Due to this intrusion, the lack of rods and cones on the optic nerve creates a spot of emptiness within our vision. There are many reasons why we cannot detect our blind spot. The main reason is because we have two eyes in which one eye will be able to fill the empty space and visa versa.

     Ok... so heres the test
1. Look at either letter with one eye closed but make sure the eye your using matches the correct eye . EX R= Right L=Left
2. Start close to your screen and slowly pull away, sooner or later, The other letter will disappear!

        R                                           L

This might take a few tries, but once you get it, you won't forget it!
