Clinical impairments of face perception
Faces are one of the most common objects recognised by human vision, and contain considerable information which enables us to recognise, and communicate with, those familiar to us. Difficulties with face recognition are common, associated with reduced quality of life and have been highlighted by patients as a priority for improvement. Further, impaired face perception can be an important symptom of sight- and life-threatening disease. The overarching aim of this lecture is to explain the implications of recent research in this area for eye care professionals.
