• Treatment for Loss of Depth Perception


    Question:

    Is there treatment for age-related loss of depth perception?


    Answer:

    Depth perception is very complex, but it is not literally age-related. Depth perception is most helpful for tasks performed within 30 inches of our eyes. The two major causes of altered depth perception are reduced vision in one or both eyes, and secondly, eye muscle weakness. If the loss of depth perception involves literal double vision, neurological disorders must be considered.

    Any specific "treatment" could only follow a thorough comprehensive eye exam by an ophthalmologist.
