stereopsis

The combined vision of two eyes (binocular vision). Stereopsis is one of the ways depth is perceived by the human brain. Other methods include the larger size of close objects and smaller size of distant objects even with one eye (monocular vision). The term comes from "stereo," which means "solid" and "3-dimensional" plus "opsis," meaning sight. See 3D visualization and stereoscopic 3D.
