One of the most relevant human capacity is the visual one. Through sight we analyze what is around us. The eys are constantly gathering information of the environment to allow a better adaptation of our organism. Our sight is a constant in the perception process and the following decision taking. Since centuries from now, this capacity has been studied by physicists (optometrists), psychologists, and doctors (ophtalmologists). From the origins different topics have been studied which embrace from the eye’s anatomy to the visual perception process (Kluka and cols., 1996).
