Abstract

To quantify the relationship between stereoacuity and ocular sensory dominance. Methods: Ocular dominance was assessed with the continuous flashing technique, and ocular dominance index (ODI) was computed in 34 subjects. Stereoacuity was measured with random dots with a variety of durations. The best stereoacuity (Dmin) and the time to achieve that (Tmin) were recorded. Results: For subjects with strong ocular dominance (ODI ≥ 2), the Dmins were not different from those with 2 balanced eyes (ODI < 2). However, the Tmins were significantly higher. Conclusion: Strong ocular dominance is correlated with longer response time, not best stereoacuity.
