Depth Perception?

I just took the Titmus Stereo test and missed 2 of 9. I was taking it for as a preplacement physical for a job with the government. On the website it says, "Normal depth perception and peripheral vision are required, as is the ability to distinguish shades of color by color plate tests."

I am curious...what is determined as normal depth perception according to the Titmus Stereo Test? Do you think I will be disqualified because I missed two?

Thanks!

You should get at least 8 right to be near normal.  The last one is very difficult to see and you might do better if done in better light, proper glasses and holding it at different distances.  You did pretty good actually - but not perfect.  I have no idea what the actual requirement is.  Depends on how well  you have to see for the job.  Get it checked at ophthalmologist's office and you might do better next time.
