med correctly on a close target, may also have trouble.

While many people have given up on ever seeing 3D, neuroscientists continue to demonstrate the brain's plasticity confirming that one can attain stereo vision even as adults. In fact, thanks to optometric vision therapy, adults and children who won't be able to see the special 3D effects in this 'Monstrous' commercial may be able to obtain that vision skill.

Sue Barry, PhD, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Mount Holyoke College, is perhaps the most famous patient who was able to gain stereo vision as an adult. Dr. Barry was featured in an article in The New Yorker by neurologist, Oliver Sacks, MD in June, 2006. As a result of a an eye turn (strabismus) and a lazy eye, also known as amblyopia, Dr. Barry lost stereo vision as a child when her brain "turned off" the image it received from the lazy eye. Despite multiple surgeries to correct the eye turn, she never achieved stereo vision. Stereo Sue, a title she gained from The New Yorker article, was a patient of Dr. Theresa Ruggiero, a Fellow of COVD. Dr. Barry was able to gain stereo vision after a year of vision therapy as an adult. Dr. Barry said that gaining stereo vision made her feel more a part of the world, "an incredible sense of being immersed in the space around you, as opposed to looking in on it from a slight distance away."

For more information on stereo vision, learning-related vision problems and vision therapy please see http://www.covd.org.
