Many kids master the skill of crossing their eyes in order to impress family or friends. Were you one of those kids? If so, cross-viewing with The Single Finger Method might be right up your alley. It might feel like you're crossing your eyes when you do this, but are you really? Well, not as much as those goofy kids do.
The Single Finger Method
You'll need to aim your eyes in front of the 3D image. You'll use your finger to help you figure out where to aim your eyes.
NOTE: What about those words "RIGHT" and "LEFT"? They indicate which eye is seeing which circle. The words are harder to get than the circles, so don't worry if they're a little blurry or wiggle around a bit. However, if one word consistently disappears then the corresponding eye may be turning off or "suppressing." You might have faulty binocular (two-eyed) vision. Try testing your binocular vision with the Framing Game.
Ready for more? There's plenty of cross-viewing fun in the 3D Gallery.
