The roughly hexagonal organisation has been found to be one of the most important features of human vision, particularly when taken in conjunction with the low optical image quality. Taken together, these permit astonishingly high fidelity performance from what, on first sight, seems to be a very simple optical system.

The eyeballs are naturally in a continuous state of small movement (eye tremor, inter saccadic drift & saccades - see Chapter 2.6 of ‘Vision and Acquisition’). It has been shown experimentally that, if all eye movements are artificially suppressed, the visual image gradually fades, disappearing completely after about ten seconds (see Chapter 2.13 of ‘Vision and Acquisition’).
