    Barrel distortion introduces horizontal and vertical disparities into stereoscopic content that can impact the perceived depth and cause eye strain. A series of experiments were run by artificially introducing a range of distortions into both eyes, and only one eye of undistorted stereoscopic content in order to evaluate the effect of warping of perceived depth space, and ascertain the minimum level of distortion that will cause image degradation.
