How far can the human eye actually see?

Some experts will tell you that the human eye can see between 30 and 60 frames per second. Some maintain that it’s not really possible for the human eye to perceive more than 60 frames per second.

How many FPS can the eye actually see?

  • The numbers often cited as the mythological "maximum" the eye can see are 30 fps, 40 fps, and 60 fps. I would guess the 60 fps "eye-seeing" limit comes from the fact that most PC monitors (and indeed many televisions now) have a maximum refresh rate of 60hz (or 60 frames per second).

How many frames per second can the human eye really see?

  • Although the human eye and brain can interpret up to 1000 frames per second, someone sitting in a chair and actively guessing at how high a framerate is can, on average, interpet up to about 150 frames per second. The point: 60 fps is not a 'waste'.

How far can the human eye see to the horizon?

  • So the distance to the horizon depends on the height of your eyes above the water. If your eyes are 8 inches (20 cm) above the water, the distance of the horizon is about 1 mile (1.6 km) away.

Apparently, someone was wondering the same thing and actually took the time to do the math and came up with a speed of about 0.42 MPH. Now that may sound “slow” but when you think about how short of a distance the eyes have to travel to switch their direction of gaze, it is quite fast.

How fast can the human brain process images?How fast can the human brain process images?

In 2014 a study by Potter and colleagues at MIT revealed that the brain can process and interpret images presented to the eyes for as little as 13 milliseconds, eight times faster than what researchers had thought in the past (100 milliseconds). Second, how fast can our eyes move? A saccade is a quick eye movement.

In addition to the eye’s light sensitivity, how fast we perceive something we are looking at also depends on what we are observing. When reading in normal light conditions, it has been observed that most people only need to see a word for between 50–60 ms in order to perceive it.

Light plus one to move faster than the eye can trace, and Light minus one to move slower than the eye can trace. From your perspective, your perception of reality is dependent on your metoblisim. *See Quantum Dipolarity, also known as Grand Unification, formerly known as The Theory of Everything.
