Binocular vision is hugely important!
 
3D enlisted to improve vision health.
Here's an interesting read, a piece that reminds us that 3D is much more than entertainment: http://www.displaydaily.com/display-daily/24031-improving-vision-with-3d 
Normal 3D vision is important to emerging readers, who must also track, focus, and team with their eyes to become effective and successful readers. Every time you see a stereo 3D movie or app, it's actually like a free eye test!

Amazing that no one is sharing Jill Bolte Taylor's amazing videos, books and stories currently - all these posts are from 2011. People, the brain is fresh, new and of current interest...her story is AMAZING.

Story
Tagline
Neuroplasticity! We can change our brains at any age. Helping children and adults overcome strabismus, lazy eye and many visual conditions through visual rehabilitation and vision therapy!
Introduction

Rachel Cooper (http://www.strabismus.org/) is a health detective who has a history of sleuthing out treatments and cures for so-called untreatable maladies. She is a solid researcher who investigates a vast array of therapies and treatment modalities, with a special emphasis on emerging science and clinical developments related to neuroplasticity, neurorehabilitation, human vision/brain, and epigenetics.

Lazy eye, Convergence Insufficiency, Hypertropia and Intermittent Exotropia Cured.
Rachel was diagnosed with lazy eye at seven and twelve years of age and was further diagnosed with convergence insufficiency, hypertropia and intermittent exotropia at 24 years of age. At 33 years of age, she completed a treatment course of non-surgical Optometric Vision Therapy and achieved stereo 3D vision (stereopsis or stereoscopic vision) and binocular depth perception. Since becoming fully binocular, Rachel has made it a priority to help others, especially children, with strabismus, lazy eye or other 3D vision issues, including learn related vision problems which are often misdiagnosed as or concomittent with learning disabilities and ADHD.
