Scream & Shout Field of Vision

Field of Vision



The human field of vision is the area of space that we can see at the same time.

Some of us are blessed with an almost 180-degree forward-facing horizontal field of vision. It is not uniform. We're not really going to be concerned with that here, as an artist can't really draw that on the printed page without resorting to trickery.

Here's what we will concern ourselves with at this time.
The normal human visual field extends to approximately 60 degrees toward the nose from the vertical center in each eye and approximately 60 degrees above and 75 below the horizontal line.

Field of Vision
When both eyes observe an object simultaneously this creates a central field of vision which is called our binocular field. This means our binocular field is about 50 degrees to 60 degrees.
