Being able to use our eyes together as a pair to see 3D (depth perception) helps us in many ways that we take for granted. Problems with depth perception can affect our ability to judge distances, complete precise hand-eye tasks and move around confidently. If our eyes are not coordinated, this can lead to symptoms of eye strain or distressing double vision, increasing risk of falls and affecting day to day tasks. This program of research focuses on the clinical measurement of depth perception and ability to use the eyes together, in people of all ages, with and without other long term conditions.
