  • Visual tasks that involve judging distance or depth obviously benefit from considering retinal disparities and ocular convergence, but various simple visual thresholds are also lower when looking with two eyes. This is also true for stereo-blind subjects. One benefit of using two eyes is that looking with two eyes provides two chances of making the critical distinction. From the literature it would appear that using two eyes might only be an advantage for low contrast stimuli and simple tasks… CONTINUE READING
