...Blind Spot Blind Spot Blood vessels and the optic nerve exit the eye at a location known as the optic disk on the retina, a light-sensitive layer of membrane at the inner back of the eye. Since this location has neither rods nor cones, collectively referred to as photoreceptors, a small gap occurs in the field of view because the area is not able to respond to stimulations of light (von der Heydt & Friedman, 2003). Cones are responsible for color vision whereas rods facilitate vision in conditions of dim light. The blood vessels and optic nerve converge into the optic nerve head in front of the retina, which results in a hole in the retina. This natural...

A race of people is not a consideration in giving a service or providing an opportunity.
