Recent reports in the literature indicate that a random-dot style of stereoscopic test is the most accurate method of assessing stereoscopic threshold [Cooper, J., Feldman, J. and Medlin, D. (1979) J. Am. optom. Ass. 50, 821-825]. While this is undoubtedly true for those who can respond to the test, it is less so for very young, infirm or other patients who do not or cannot have the requisite attention span.
