3D movies, depth perception, stereopsis and binocular vision disorders

At the end of this post is an excellent movie about 3D Vision Syndrome, an eye movement disorder that prevents people from seeing in three dimensions normally.  3D vision is called "stereopsis" and people who can't see in 3D are called "stereoblind".

If you or your child don't experience 3D movies they way other people do, you may have a binocular vision disorder that needs to be treated with vision therapy.

Here are some previous articles we have written on 3D vision and depth perception:
