I've been deleting all the rifle shooting stuff due to an excess of
apathy, but because of the SUBJ I had to read this, and something caught
my eye. If it's been asked, forgive me.
Joseph has some very good points, all of which I deleted for brevity.
What I want to know is, what does albinism have to do with depth
perception and 3-D eyesight? I've known several albinos, some of whom
were not legally blind. Those who were not legally blind had the same
amount of depth perception as the average person and could perfectly well
see in 3-D.
One can be extremely non-albino and have lousy depth perception.
