2 variables affect the shape of a horopter.
 1) skew  relates to relative magnification, R.
 2) curvature  this is the HeringHillerband deviation, H.

What is Horopter skew and what is the equation?
R = tan (alpha2)/ tan (alpha1)
 If both eyes lie on the horopter the 2 angles, alpha 1 & 2 are equal to each other so R = 1 and therefore no relative magnification in either eye. Object space = perceived space.
When the 2 angles don't = to make R=1, one eye's image is mag/minified relative to the other, aniseikonia.

If alpha1 is kept the same and alpha 2 is magnified which way do we move the rod? Closer or farther?
Closer so the angle of alpha2 becomes smaller again to match alpha1.

A horopter always skews towards the ____ eye.
Magnified eye.

Move the 2 points P and Q to put it back on the horopter and what does the new horopter look like?
Which point displays Crossed or Uncrossed disparity.
 P is crossed. Q is uncrossed.
 Push P farther and pull Q closer.

If R>1, which eye is magnified and what does the new horopter look like?
If R<1?
 R>1 then
 
 R<1 then
