Open/Close Menu A website, archive and interactive space celebrating one of Britain's most innovative engineers and inventors, Frederick Lanchester

Fred became interested in optics and ophthalmology and he met Robert Lockhart, Professor of Anatomy at Birmingham University, beginning a life-long friendship.

In 1933 Fred wrote a paper titled ‘Directional Fixity and the Transitory Visual Impression or Fleeting Image’ .  He continued to write to Professor Lockhart and exchange ideas on subjects like the ‘blind-spot’ and blending of colour in the eye.
