haploscope

Instrument used mainly in the laboratory to study various aspects of binocular vision. It presents separate fields of view to the two eyes while allowing changes in convergence or accommodation of one or both eyes, as well as providing for controls of colour, intensity or size of target and field. See Worth amblyoscope; dichoptic; dichoptic masking.

En passant, my paper--Some measurements made with the Fincham haploscope co-incidence optometer (Optician April 18, 1969)--included results for convergence-induced accommodation (accommodation induced by convergence alone), which was exceptional for subject G, a -4.50 myopic student.
All experiments reported in this paper used a custom head-mounted see-through display called an electronic haploscope by the authors, which is capable of presenting a 20 [degrees] to 30 [degrees] diameter circular monocular field to each eye with variable monocular overlap.
The haploscope display system was adjusted by monocular superimposition of reference virtual images on an 18-cm diameter circumscribed circle presented at a distance of 2.2 m.
