Not Quite the "Cure" for Stereoblindness
I’ve posted a comment to the story that implies that the movie Hugo cured someone’s stereoblindness. But the person was never stereoblind. Here’s more from Professor Banks:
“The data show quite clearly that Bridgeman had stereo but that his thresholds were not normal (that is, his stereo vision was reduced, but certainly not absent).
“We have seen many times in the lab that people get better in stereo tasks with practice. These aren’t miraculous cures. These are due to learning how to various things like control the vergence of your eyes.”
