Abstract

Fixation disparities were artificially created for distance vision by prisms, and the monocular and binocular visual acuities were measured. The normal approximate 10% improvement in binocular visual acuity compared to monocular visual acuity, deteriorated in proportion to the amount of fixation disparity created by the prisms. This was true in both eso- and exo-disparity, although not to the same extent.
