Is depth perception affected by blindness in one eye?

Need two. True depth perception usually requires 2 eyes (same for 3d at the movies). People who only have vision in one eye compensate by being a good judge of size, etc.
Yes. Depth perception dysfunction is usually due to childhood strabismus, or poor vision in one eye. These things are usually permanent and cannot be treated. Blindness in one eye prevents simultaneous binocular vision which ends true depth perception (stereovision).

Can depth perception be affected by partial blindness in one eye?

Probably not.... Although calling an eye partially blind is like calling someone partially dead. A partial loss of vision in one eye could effect your depth perception, but not enough to notice in your every day life functions....I don't think you'd get as much out of 3d movies though. Read more...
Yes. If the loss in the one eye is central, eliminating or severely compromising that portion of the vision, then depth perception with be disturbed and may even be eliminated. Read more...

Help please! Is depth perception affected by partial blindness in one eye?

Yes. For the best depth perception, you must have good vision in both eyes. You can have some depth perception with good vision in one eye and moderate vision in the other. You have no depth perception if there is poor vision in one eye. Read more...
Yes. Depth perception, (stereovision) requires good input from both eyes. If one eye is severely blurred, true depth perception is not possible. Read more...

Can you tell me if one eye has blurry vision, does that impact depth perception at all, or does one eye have to be totally blind to reduce depth perception?

Usually not. I knew a one eye'd tae kwon do master who could throw a punch at your face and stop within a milimeter of hitting you. There are enough visual 'clues' that we use that even with one eye our brain can percieve a depth perception. You'd fail our stereoscopic tests and probably waste money in 3d movies, but other than that you would have a normal life. Read more...
