enhanced stereoscopic vision
   The term enhanced stereoscopic vision is used to denote a type of " metamorphopsia (i.e. a visual distortion) whereby near objects seem to be closer than they are, and more distant objects appear to be further away than they are. As a result, the subjective sensation of the depth and detail of visually perceived objects is exaggerated. The term enhanced stereoscopic vision is used in opposition to the term "loss of stereoscopic vision.
