Natural problems for stereoscopic depth perception in virtual environments

Wann, J.P., Rushton, S. and Mon-Williams, M. (1995) Natural problems for stereoscopic depth perception in virtual environments. Vision Research, 35 (19). pp. 2731-2736. ISSN 0042-6989

The use of virtual reality (VR) display systems has escalated over the last 5 yr and may have consequences for those working within vision research. This paper provides a brief review of the literature pertaining to the representation of depth in stereoscopic VR displays. Specific attention is paid to the response of the accommodation system with its cross-links to vergence eye movements, and to the spatial errors that arise when portraying three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional window. It is suggested that these factors prevent large depth intervals of three-dimensional visual space being rendered with integrity through dual two-dimensional arrays.
