Reviews of topical problems

Polarisation physiological optics

Lebedev Physical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Leninsky prosp. 53, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

This review is concerned with two interconnected issues: the sensitivity of visual organs to polarisation, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, application of polarisation-optical methods to the investigation of eye media, as well as the possibility, in principle, to use them in ophthalmology. A great number of papers published in different journals on physics, biology, and medicine during many years have been used. To date no reviews on this subject have appeared in the world scientific literature.
