Stereo Vision

Stereo vision is a measure of a person’s depth perception. When the two eyes are teaming well with one another, a person has better depth perception. It is a learned trait that improves over time, especially with more hand-eye coordinating activities.

If a person has an eye turn (large or subtle) or has trouble with the eyes teaming, they often have very poor depth perception or stereo vision. They may have trouble catching a ball or may run into objects. They could report words moving around the page. During your child’s examination, we will use tools to measure the degree of stereo vision present.
