When the corresponding horizontal meridia of the two eyes are aligned, the corresponding vertical meridia are tilted outwards in a temporal direction, a phenomenon first described by Helmholtz. However, it is not known if this effect is confined to the principal meridia or whether the same relationship exists between corresponding horizontal and corresponding vertical meridia at eccentric retinal locations. We sought to address this issue by exploiting the technique of Nakayama (1977… CONTINUE READING
