Much can be learned about the visual system by studying clinical defects and abnormalities. This chapter reviews defects of depth perception that result from brain damage or genetic defects such as albinism, with particular attention paid to the signs and symptoms of loss of binocularity. The discussions cover stereoanomalies; brain damage and stereopsis; abnormal interocular transfer; binocularity and proprioception; and albinism.

Keywords:   visual system, depth perception, genetic defects, albinism, binocularity, stereoanomalies, stereopsis, abnormal inteocular transfer, proprioception
