Abstract

Explanations of Haidinger’s brushes based on a postulated array of linear dichroic pigment and bi-refringent effects in the refracting media of the eye are not completely satisfactory. As an alternative explanation, it is postulated that the retina has properties similar to an anisotropic absorbing crystal. The interference effects of convergent polarized light in this model may account for Haidinger’s brushes.
