Reference Entry
A definition of the term "retinal correspondence" is presented. The retinal correspondence is a condition caused due to the synchronous stimulation of the retinal points presents in eyes, resulting in the production of a single visual sensation. It is also stated that an abnormal correspondence can result in diplopia, which refers to the double vision. An imbalance of the ocular muscles causes diplopia.
