Do any of you lack depth perception?

It’s a bit scary because you can’t perceive if something is coming or going.

At night, while driving, yes, sometimes my eyes play tricks on me. I avoid driving at night, and especially when it’s raining or snowing.

I heard of that people with Sz have a poor insight.

Poor insight in people with sz just means that they can’t see that there is something wrong with themselves when they are having delusions and whatnot. It doesn’t have anything to do with their vision.


I am blind in one eye, so yes, I have no depth perception.

So, does it bother you that you can’t know whether someone or something is coming or going?

I know I’ve had that problem since I was a kid… Put in physical therapy… Never helped but I learned how to live this way heck I even drive!

I have strabismus which causes low or no depth perception, I hate driving at night.

Yes, I scored a 2 out of 5 on my drivers eye test for depth perception. Also bright lights and my eyes dont do well. I just see huge rainbow halos around oncoming vehicle lights lol. especially the new vehicles with the bright white leds, they are brutal! I could wear sunglasses its that bad

I thought this had something to do with deep sea diving bc i did a bit of that in 2015 and it was great, really hard to pop my ears though, that was a bit painful but i got there.

as for driving idk what you mean by depth perception

maybe it is how you perceive the deep issues of the day idk

@mrhappy cover one of your eyes and walk towards the nearest pole really fast :blush:


Depth perception refers to the ability of the eyes to work together so that one can perceive distances between objects both still or moving.

Ive never not been blind in one eye. So ive never seen things any other way and would probably find it weird if I could.

does it include me seeing things out of the sides of my eyes cause i swear i seen a cat today.

No, it does not include looking to one side.

My military entrance exams showed my depth perception was so bad that the examiner joked that I would never be a pilot.

That’s just one of the reasons I can’t drive a car. The others are because I have poor judgment and slow reflexes.

I get glimpses of depth perception as an eye doctor gave me some exercises to do. I find it exciting. But I am also a creature of habit and I was born with no depth perception.

so its only happens when you cover one eye?

Can I ask why it bothers you then? After my head injury I had depth perception for a brief amount of time and it just made me feel sick. I am glad to be partially blind, because seeing in 3D is horrible.

Because I wish I were a more competent driver. And, just recently, a kid was waving her arms around and I couldn’t know that she wasn’t coming at me. She wasn’t angry, though, so I had nothing to fear.
