Direct vision is the 1-2% of the field of view that is used when focusing your eyes on something.
Peripheral vision is the remaining 98-99% of the field of view. Its task is primarily to detect movement. You often perceive something on the edge of your field of view, in the periphery, but must focus your eyes, using direct vision, to truly see and understand what is happening there.
