Research on Leonardo’s Eye Disorder
Was Leonardo’s eye disorder actually a boon in disguise? Check out this video to learn more about the current research on Leonardo Da Vinci’s artwork vis-a-vis his eye disorder (intermittent exotropia).
- Researcher: Christopher W. Tyler (City Univ. of London)
- Visual neuroscientist Dr. Tyler examined Leonardo’s artwork and concluded that he suffered from a rare eye disorder
- The eye disorder was identified as intermittent exotropia
- Because the exotropia was intermittent, he could switch back and forth between 2-D and 3-D
- Patients suffering from intermittent exotropia are able to switch between 2-D and 3-D vision by aligning the eyes accordingly
- This study assessed 2 sculptures, 2 oil paintings, and 2 drawings created by Leonardo
- Most paintings exhibit a consistent exotropic strabismus angle of −10.3°
