duction

1. Movement of one eye alone as in abduction, adduction, depression, elevation, etc. 2. Disjunctive binocular movements (although it is more correct to call these movements vergences). See dextroduction; laevoduction; disjunctive eye movements.
binocular duction refers to the maximum vergence powers that can be exerted while maintaining single binocular vision through prisms, either in the base-in or base-out direction. Binocular ductions are measured from the passive position (or phoria position) to the break point.
