Visual acuity, an indicator of visual sharpness or clarity, was assessed binocularly (in both eyes simultaneously) using a standard vision testing instrument, the Optec 1,000 (Optec, Inc.).
The BJND model determines the minimum distortions in one view that evoke binocularly visible differences, given the background information and the distortions in the corresponding area of the other view.

At the other extreme are innovative and technologically advanced systems such as Head Mounted Displays (HMD) which simulate binocularly overlapped images and create the illusion of a three-dimensional world (Mon-Williams, Warm, & Rushton, 1993).
There occur losses in the number of responsive cells to the deprived eye, a loss of binocularly responsive cells, shrinkage of cells in the LGN laminae serving the deprived eye and significant abnormalities in the response qualities of the cells that remain throughout life.
