The Mind's Eye
I love Oliver Sacks. This book is all about vision - not what happens in the eye, but rather in the brain. In one essay he talks about his own experience with prosopagnosia - inability to recognize faces. In another he writes about having a kind of cancer that destroyed his central vision and stereoscopic vision. My favorite chapter was the last, on blindness and some of the ways people have adapted to that condition by either intensifying their mental imagery or giving it up altogether. Fascinating read if you're interested in the brain.
