hi everyone : )

I have just found out that I have “no/no normal/natural” stereo vision- and that’s why I’ve never been able to walk with my glasses on and that’s why when I watch tv with glasses on and tilt/have head sideways I get double vision in one eye (peops on telly suddenly have 3 eyes lol)

so now I’m wondering whether this ‘no stereo vision’ was the (or an added to proprioception probs) reason why I was so hyperclumsy as a kid but with time got less clumsy-
basically that I had no depth perception as a kid=clumsiness, but once my brain had made its own connections/compensations(which luckily it did) I got depth perception=much less clumsy

does that make sense?

edited- I should have been more precise… tut tut tut…  my mum’s optometrist suggested, when I asked him about the oddnesses I have, that this sounds like ‘no stereo vision’- but he is in a different country to me and I would now like to have this checked out/confirmed-
but my local opto… doesnt seem to really know about this-

could you dr d suggest what kind of tests could confirm this ‘no stereovision’ and have any suggestion of how best to deal with this seeing that I have one eye that’s a bit short sighted and the other eye is getting v v v longsighted (opto was somewhat surprised how seemingly v quickly the longsighted eye seems to loose short sight…)

Hi Bearcat, Boy, it’s too bad you don’t live closer! Any eye doctor worth his or her snuff should be able to answer this for you! To have “normal” steriopsis, both eyes need to correct to approximately 20/20 or 20/25 vision, and they need to have normal alignment. If one eye has a stronger prescription, the doctor should consider making the glasses with different curves, so that image size difference isn’t a problem (or contacts may eliminate this). If it only occurs in certain positions, it may be the glasses, or a partial muscle paresis (common with us, especially with pressure on top of our brain). Perhaps a second opinion is in order? smile Diana
