Proximal vergence was measured haploscopically in response to a change in physical distance of a large screen of blurred horizontal lines. These responses were compared to proximal vergence measurements made using a clinical method. Perceived distance of the horizontal stripes was estimated according to the perceived size of a projected afterimage. For 18 normal observers the change in vergence measured haploscopically (in prism diopters per meter angle change in test distance) averaged 2.59… CONTINUE READING
