Vision science is the scientific study of vision. Vision science is a term used to encompass all studies of vision, such as how human and non-human organisms process visual information, how conscious visual perception works in humans, how to exploit visual perception for effective communication, and how artificial systems can do the same tasks. Vision science overlaps with or encompasses disciplines such as ophthalmology, neuroscience, psychology (particularly sensation and perception psychology, cognitive psychology, psychophysics, and neuropsychology), physics (particularly optics), ethology, and computer science (particularly computer vision, artificial intelligence, and computer graphics), as well as practical applications such as data visualization, user interface design, and human factors and ergonomics.
