Description Clear vision of an object requires that its image be held steadily on the retina; best vision is possible when the image lies on the fovea (macula), which has the highest photoreceptor density. It follows that excessive motion of images on the retina degrades vision and leads to the illusion of movement of the visual environment (oscillopsia).
