Depth Perception

Depth perception is used almost every days in the lives of many people. For example, depth perception is used when you are driving. Depth perception refers to your eyes ability to judge the distance between two objects (Larson, n.d). There are many different issues that can affect depth perception including amblyopia, strabismus,  trauma to one of your eyes, and blurry vision. Depth perception issues can affect everyday life in many ways such as impaired driving, squinting e.g. learning for kids, crossing the street, sports, pouring water, and even taking the stairs (Larson, n.d). In some cases, this can be treated but not always. I find this to be a very interesting perspective of how vision plays a role in everyday life.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this post! It made me realize how important depth perception is and how I have been taking it for granted.
