Retinal correspondence is the inherent relationship between paired retinal visual cells in the two eyes. Images from one object stimulate both cells, which transmit the information to the brain, permitting a single visual impression localized in the same direction in space.
Abnormal retinal correspondence (ARC), also anomalous retinal correspondence, is binocular sensory adaptation to compensate for a long-standing eye deviation (i.e. strabismus. The fovea of the straight (non-deviated) eye and non-foveal retinal point of the deviated eye work together, sometimes permitting single binocular vision.
