This definition, from the introduction, is the result of the researches made on the extent and the manner of coordination of the two eyes for production of single binocular vision and the sensation of depth perception.

Studies in psychology of vision, physiology of vision and ophthalmic optics must be coordinated in an effort to explain the sensory and motor responses to visual stimulation. Much of the original research was done by the author and his colleagues at the Dartmouth Eye Institute at Hanover, N. H., prior to the termination of its activities July 1, 1947.
