Vision Quality Disparities:
Patients with bilateral eye injury or LASIK complications may report different aberrations in each eye. With both eyes open, these aberrations are synthesized to yield a composite image. However, one eye usually contributes more to the resulting composite than the other, a phenomenon known as "ocular dominance." This simulation illustrates one possible scenario, in which vision in the left eye is blurred following LASIK, whereas vision in the right eye is ghosted. Drag the slider right and left to control the degree of ocular dominance between eyes. The default if set at about 75% in favor of the right eye, reflecting the fact that for most individuals, eye dominance follows handedness.
