    What is meant by convergence?

    Binocular cues are visual information taken in by two eyes that enable us a sense of depth perception , or stereopsis.

    Refers to the tendency to perceive an object you are familiar with as having constant shape , size, and brightness despite the stimuli changes that occur.

    Psychology -> Binocular depth cue Binocular depth cue In 'magic eye' pictures each eye observes a slightly different view of the same scene. In 'magic eye' pictures each eye observes a slightly different view of the same scene. Retinal Disparity (Binocular Disparity): A primary binocular depth cue which is caused by the fact that our eyes are 6-7cms apart and thus receive slightly different retinal images. The difference in locations of the images on each eye provides a powerful cue to distance. The brain fuses the two retinal images together to provide us with stereoscopic vision. For example, in 'magic eye' pictures, each eye observes a slightly different view of the same scene and the brain fuses the two images together to create a three-dimensional picture. Convergence: A primary binocular depth cue where the eyes turn inward to focus on an object so that a single image is formed on both retinas. The closer the object, the greater the convergence. For example, the eyes converge when catching a ball.

    diastance and angle matters.our eyes are two but not two in one?

    Retinal disparity explains why, when I look at a finger touching the end of my nose, convergence results in a crosseyed look.
