Depth Perception Is a Profound Part of Your Vision

August 30, 2022

If you didn’t possess depth perception, you wouldn’t be able to discern objects’ depths, widths and lengths. You couldn’t even perceive how far away something was. Take a look at the world without depth perception by walking around for a few moments with one of your eyes covered. Depth perception is possible when both eyes focus on an object simultaneously. Your brain then combines the two views to establish a three-dimensional scene. Imagine trying to drive without depth perception! Unfortunately, however, some vision problems can alter depth perception. 

The office of Oronoque Eye Care is at the forefront of new technologies to make your eyesight proficient and effective. Whether you need an eye exam, a new prescription, contact lenses or eyeglasses, we pride ourselves on our never-ending ability to fulfill our mission to provide superior patient care. 

Issues that can impede your depth perception include refractive errors. If you are nearsighted, you have myopia, and faraway things look blurry. If you are farsighted, you have hyperopia, and close-up things appear blurry. The fuzzy images due to each condition, which can affect people of all ages, won’t appear sharp and will therefore hinder your depth perception. 

At the same time, if close-up objects start to appear blurry when they formerly didn’t and you’re 40 or older, it’s called presbyopia. This condition strikes one out of three people above that age and also hinders depth perception. 

If you have astigmatism, your cornea is shaped irregularly, so it can’t correctly work with your lens to converge light to the back of your eye. 

If your eyesight is changing or if you find yourself straining to see objects clearly, it’s time to see an optometrist. He or she will examine your eyes to discover the reasons behind your concerns. It’s important to get treatment as soon as possible so your issue can be attended to before it worsens. 


The attention you’ll receive at Oronoque Eye Care is focused on providing a comfortable and relaxing environment while giving you superior treatment. We offer a clear picture of your options and deliver the results you expect. Please call our office to schedule an appointment.
