Even when we stare intently at an object, our eyes are in constant motion due to small, involuntary eye movements. Despite this, we do not perceive a jittery world as the visual system is able to compensate for the motion that arises and construct a stable visual percept. The thesis explores the need for such compensatory mechanisms by combining phenomenology and psychophysics to determine whether perceptual stabilisation mechanisms can have a measurable influence on visual function..
