Eye angle test

It is how our brain assembles the two different images from our eyes that allows us to see three dimensions. To see how each of our eyes view objects in a slightly different angle. Try this test. 

  • Close your right eye.
  • Looking through your left eye,  line up your finger so that it covers the line.
  • Keep you finger in the same position and close your left eye and open your right eye. 
  • Notice the line looks like it moved and is now visible. Reverse this test and notice the line moves in the other direction.
  • You have now observed how how each eye sends a slightly different view of the same object to the brain.
