## What is considered normal Stereoacuity?

For discerning the clinical significance the stereo acuity levels were categorized into normal (20 arc seconds or better), Borderline (25 arc seconds to 40 arc seconds) and Reduced stereopsis (50 arc seconds to 400 arc seconds).

## How do you test stereoscopic vision?

The eye doctor will ask you to wear what looks like a pair of sunglasses, then show a book with images, often of a butterfly or reindeer, cartoon characters or circles and other shapes. These images are actually in 3D, and as you identify the 3D images ‘popping out of the page’ your 3D vision (stereopsis) is measured.

What is the TNO test?

The TNO stereo test is a commonly used clinical test to evaluate stereopsis and should be conducted while wearing anaglyph glasses. The test pattern was designed with a random dot, and the latest version, 19th edition, contains six test plates.

### What is stereopsis in Optometry?

Stereopsis is calculated by taking the least difference in seconds of arc that the individual can perceive binocularly. This value changes as the object’s distance from the eyes changes. Stereopsis improves at as distance from the eyes decreases.

### What is the Wirt test?

Wirt fly stereotest with polarising spectacles. Consists of three stereoscopic tests employing polarised vectographs. The fly dramatically demonstrates the presence of stereo vision. The other two tests provide the practitioner with results to estimate the level of stereoscopic vision.

What is Titmus fly test?

Answer: This is a test which the optometrist uses (normally with children) to detect stereopsis (the ability to perceive depth) and therefore identify conditions where stereopsis is absent eg amblyopia.

## What is a good stereopsis?

In general, you are considered to have gross stereoscopic vision at 3,600 seconds of arc. The smaller the number (some people can achieve stereovision better than 20 seconds of arc), the better your stereopsis.

## What is the purpose of Worth 4 dot test?

The Worth Four Light Test, also known as the Worth’s Four Dot test or abbreviation W4LT, is one simple clinical test mainly used for assessing a patient’s degree of binocular vision.
