In addition, persons with retinitis pigmentosa rarely consciously perform visual tasks monocularly, such as was described in the questionnaire.
Since microperimetry is performed monocularly, there is a question of whether it represents the actual fixation behavior when a person is binocular and is in a real-world environment.
The screen (EIZO FlexScan F77 21-in.) was viewed monocularly from 60 cm and the unused eye was patched.
Although symbology was displayed monocularly to the participants' right eye, the field of view (i.e., the amount of information available to both eyes) was constrained to 30[degrees].
(Even if the display was presented monocularly, and with the pictorial depth cues provided by the background removed, participants spontaneously reported seeing a ball travelling rapidly away from them in depth.)
A 29-year-old office worker who is monocularly aphakic presents with the following Rx:
In addition, the WAM 5500 auto-refractor was used to assess the accommodative stimulus/ response (AS/R) function [1,14] to a high-contrast reduced Snellen chart stimuli monocularly in the right eye (OD); the left eye (OS) was fully occluded with a black eye patch.

For these reasons, as well as the likelihood that there is some accompanying ametropia, it is essential to measure the patient's uncorrected and distance corrected near vision binocularly and monocularly. Following this, measuring the amount of near add that a patient requires in each eye is important.
Surgical correction of the cyclodeviation in congenital SO palsy determines monocular and binocular consequences: monocularly, in the cyclodeviated amblyopic eye, visual acuity increases and the fixation pattern improves, as demonstrated by microperimetry examination; binocular stereopsis improves or emerges, while suppression disappears.
