Definition of binocular vision in English:

binocular vision


  • [mass noun] Vision using two eyes with overlapping fields of view, allowing good perception of depth.

    • ‘The camera collapses three-dimensional space onto the two-dimensional plane, it disables those faculties of depth perception which depend on binocular vision and parallax.’
    • ‘Their eyes are on the top of their head, close together to allow for binocular vision (the field of vision of the two eyes intersects, to provide more accurate depth perception in front of the animal).’
    • ‘The two eyes work together to produce binocular vision that we perceive as depth of vision, which helps us in everyday activities like climbing stairs or hitting a ball with a bat.’
    • ‘Their large, forward-set eyes give them better binocular vision, an aid in depth perception when targeting prey.’
    • ‘Because my eyes are wired up in a slightly odd fashion and don't cooperate very much, it means that anything that requires binocular vision is going to be a problem.’
    • ‘Wheatstone's own research on binocular vision further strengthened the relocation of perception in the human body.’
    • ‘In fact she had merely been using her binocular vision to read the price on that designer dress in Droopy's window.’
    • ‘What about binocular vision, or the human hand with its opposable thumb?’
    • ‘Immersed within this flow of images, sounds, bodies, and sensations, perspectival space and binocular vision become less dominant modes of visual perception.’
    • ‘Participants learnt about binocular vision, and its role in being able to estimate distances and differentiate between dissimilar elements in the foreground and background.’
    • ‘Its 40-degree binocular vision makes it hard to sneak up on.’
    • ‘Although a single eye can use various cues to obtain some information about depth, or the distance of objects, much better cues are provided by binocular vision, in which input from the two eyes can be compared by cells in the visual cortex.’
    • ‘We center ourselves with the threat, because a creature with binocular vision instinctively wants to get more visual input and this maximizes the field of view.’
    • ‘In strabismus, also known as ‘lazy eye,’ defects in the muscles surrounding one or both eyeballs cause the eye to roll off center, preventing the proper functioning of binocular vision.’
    • ‘But binocular vision comes at a price: it leaves a dangerous blind spot behind the head, which can give predators an advantage.’
    • ‘The 3D illusion depended on binocular vision, but de Toth only had one eye.’
    • ‘Eye patching does not speed healing or pain reduction; it can result in loss of binocular vision and may interfere with the patient's ability to participate in routine activities.’
    • ‘While this may be one of the first instances in which Leonardo, in his art, considered how intimate, binocular vision affects perception, he continued to concern himself with related issues for decades.’
    • ‘Stereo photography supports natural binocular vision by providing pairs of discrete images for the left and right eyes.’
    • ‘The image instead exists in us through the physiological apparatus of our sight; for its part, the stereo-optical apparatus modeling binocular vision both makes subjective synthesis possible and trains attention.’
