The effect first noted in 1885 (6) was also explained in the original study by Einthoven, by the slight interocular differences in transverse chromatic aberration. Modern experimental studies show that changes in separation of small artificial pupils, which can change the foveal transverse chromatic aberration, also changes the amount of chromostereopsis.
