Eye exercises for depth perception

Researchers say a push-pull training method is a good way to correct sensory eye dominance, in which an imbalance between the vision strength of the eyes impairs fine depth perception.

A new study says a push-pull training method is a good way to correct a condition called sensory eye dominance, in which an imbalance between the vision strength of the eyes impairs fine depth perception.

"After a 10-day training period, we found our participants' sensory eye dominance is significantly reduced as the two eyes become more balanced. As a consequence, their depth perception also improves significantly," Teng Leng Ooi, of Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University, said.
