Abstract

Stereomobilization, or the speed at which stereopsis is perceived, may be a valuable indicator of functional stereopsis under everyday conditions. A computer program for the Macintosh colour computer was designed to test stereomobilization ability. Stereomobilzation norms were obtained for fine and gross disparity presentations using 61 subjects. Significant linear reduction (p < 0.05) in stereomobilization ability with increasing exposure speed was found for both disparities. Gender and correction type played no significant role in stereomobilization ability.
