TNO Stereo Test
The TNO Stereo Test is a random dot stereo test to evaluate stereopsis in clinical or occupational environments while wearing anaglyph glasses.
It consists of three screening plates (Plates I – III), a plate for testing eye suppression (Plate IV) and two plates (Plate V and VI) for the quantitative testing of stereo acuity. The three screening plates show test images, a butterfly and geometric forms, that, when viewed through the red-green glasses, seem to float above the test plate. The quantitative plates are comprised of optotypes shaped as discs with a sector missing. The optotypes are distributed over four different depth levels covering a range of 60 to 480 arcsec, values much lower than the 1980 arcsec that are used for the screening plates.
The TNO Stereo Test is available with a set of stereo viewing glasses for either children or adults. Both the book or the glasses can also be purchased separately.
