Details and patient eligibility

About

In this research study we want to test how people understand a visual scene when the same image is presented to both the eyes, but portions of these images are altered in terms of contrast, depth or in some cases motion.

Inclusion criteria

  • Able to give voluntary, informed consent
  • Able to understand English
  • Binocular vision parameters within normal limits (Stereopsis ≤ 100 arc sec on any stereo test)

Visual confusion
Experimental group
Description:
Participants viewed peripheral targets in three different visual confusion conditions (three interventions): binocular visual confusion (unilateral opaque target), unilateral monocular visual confusion (unilateral see-through target), and bilateral monocular visual confusion (bilateral see-through target). Each intervention was presented twice in a randomized order, resulting in a total of six trials. During each trial, a peripheral target was presented in front of a forward-moving background for one minute. Participants were instructed to hold down the controller button while the target was visible and release it when a third or more of the target disappeared. After each trial, participants could take a brief break before the next trial in a different visual confusion condition was presented in a randomized order.
Treatment:
Behavioral: Unilateral monocular visual confusion (unilateral see-through)
Behavioral: Binocular visual confusion (unilateral opaque)
Behavioral: Bilateral monocular visual confusion (bilateral see-through)
