Convergence and Divergence

In order for you to look at an object close to your face, your eyes must turn inward (converge) toward the object. When looking at far objects, they move the other direction, or diverge.


Convergence is the ability to turn the two eyes toward each other to look at a close object. We depend on this visual skill for near-point activities such as desk work at school, working on a smartphone type device, or even in sports when catching a ball.
