Results support findings by Bechtoldt and Colliver for temporal dominance of the visual field. The test-retest reliability of the stereoscopic procedure for assessing dominance of the nasal or temporal visual fields was found to be significant for both left and right temporal fields. Furthermore, the test results appear to be unaffected by age or by level of intellectual functioning. Further research is in order both to evaluate competing theories of binocular rivalry and suppression and to assess optical processes at cortical and subcortical levels.
