eccentric vision (s) (noun), eccentric visions (pl)
The fixation of the eyes with a part of the retina other than the fovea.
The fovea is located in the eye, a tiny pit located in the macula of the retina (a small spot in the eye where vision is sharpest) which provides the clearest vision of all.
Only in the fovea are the layers of the retina spread aside to let light fall directly on the cones, the cells that give the sharpest image.
