Abstract

With the use of an asymmetric matching technique, the Bezold-Brücke phenomenon of the extrafoveal retina was measured at different eccentricities during the cone-plateau period of the long-term dark-adaptation curve and after 30 min dark adaptation. The results indicate that both the rod and the cone mechanisms contribute to the luminance-dependent hue shift of the extrafoveal retina.

Bezold-Brücke phenomenon obtained at 0°, 1.5°, 6°, 9°, and 14°. The abscissa represents the wavelength of the foveal comparison field that matched the monochromatic light of the test field, while the ordinate gives the retinal illumination of the test field. The wavelengths of the test field are indicated at the top of each curve. Plain and filled symbols represent, respectively, the measurements obtained during the cone-plateau period and after 30 min dark adaptation.

Bezold-Briicke phenomenon obtained at 0°, 1.5°, 6°, 9°, and 14°. The abscissa represents the wavelength of the test field, while the ordinate gives the magnitude of the luminance-dependent hue shift obtained between 1 and 10 (●), 10 and 100 (○), and 100 and 1000 (+) photopic td. Figs. 2(a) and 2(b) represent, respectively, the results obtained during the cone-plateau period and after 30 min dark adaptation.
