Peripheral vision is a part of vision that occurs outside the very center of gaze.
There is in actuality a very broad set of non-central points in the field of view that is included in the notion of peripheral vision.
Peripheral vision is weaker in humans, compared with other animals, especially at distinguishing color and shape.
This is because the density of receptor cells on the retina is greatest at the center and lowest at the edges.
Peripheral vision is good at detecting motion.
