Abstract:

A hypothetical mechanism of partial visual tracking to account for the viewing distance dependency of visual performance in vibration was criticized because ocular resonance was not considered. By means of mechanical and photographic techniques, the resonant frequency of the eye was found to be 18 Hz however, the amplification factor is insufficient to account for the observed performance. Additional psychophysical tests were not inconsistent with original hypothesis, and also demonstrate that the major component of the eye movement is rotational rather than translational.
