    On average, women have a wider peripheral vision than men. Women's eyes have more rods and less cones than men, which means that women have better peripheral vision. Men are likely to focus on things in front of them and to focus on those things in detail. On the contrary, women are better at seeing things around them.

    Well, it seems that you are quite interested in this particular field right? So, your assumption that women's peripheral vision is better than that of men might be false, because there are just no evidence that could support your point of view. And according to a lot of cases, there would be no difference in peripheral vision between genders.There will only be difference between healthy eyes and impaired eyes.

    Women not only have a greater variety of cones in the retina, they also have wider peripheral vision than men.As a nest defender, a woman has rain software that allows her to receive an arc of at least 45°clear vision to each side of her head and above and below her nose. Many women's peripheral vision is effective up to almost 180°.A man's eyes are configured for a type of long-distance tunnel vision which means which means that he can see clearly and accurately directly in front of him and over greater distances.As a hunter, a man needed vision that would allow hime to zero in on, and pursue, targets in the distance. He evolved with almost blindered vision so that he would not be distracted from targets, whereas a woman needed eyes to allow a wide arc of vision so that she could monitor any predators sneaking up on the nest.This is why modern men can find their way effortlessly to a distant pub, but can never find things in the fridge.
