Use your arrow keys to move the red icon into the box. Press ENTER when the icon is perfectly situated in the box.
Proper alignment creates no difference between the perceived location and actual location of an object.
Depth
Perception
When you press START, a line of circles will appear on the screen. Using your keyboard arrow keys, move the arrow underneath the one circle that appears to float (3D-like) at a different level than the others, then press ENTER.
Depth perception uses both eyes simultaneously to precisely locate an object in free space.
Convergence &
Divergence
For both the Convergence and Divergence tests, you will see two superimposed red/blue dotted boxes as one. Within the box you should be able to perceive a 3D diamond shape at the top, bottom, left or right in the box. Use your arrow keys to indicate which section of the box the diamond shape is located in.
Convergence refers to the ability to focus on objects in close proximity while divergence is the ability to focus on an object in the distance.

After clicking the START button, a series of blue arrows will flash on the screen. Wait until the arrows disappear, then using your arrow keys, indicate the direction each arrow was pointing, from left to right.
Recognition is the ability to view, process and respond to visual stimuli.
