Burian Lecture

Binocular Vision and Test Design

The theme of the 2020 Burian Lecture will be, how my research carried out at the University of Sheffield has been integrated into clinical practice. The focus of this work has been the investigation of binocular single vision and in particular stereopsis. It has provided further understanding and evidence for testing binocular vision and methods of clinical application. I will share my experience of designing a new test, the FD2, and the challenges that can bring. By considering the literature on current clinical assessment of stereoacuity, the talk will include discussion of test design and what should be considered when administering and interpreting the results from clinical tests.
