Random Dot Stereogram

Imbedded in the computer generated "random dot matrix" below is the 3-D image of the word: PHOTOREAD. Seeing the 3-D image is a fun way to achieve PhotoFocus, the divergent gaze used for PhotoReading.

Method One

Allow your eyes to space out and gaze through the paper. You may watch the two dots at the top of the page become four. Each eye sees two dots independently. Overlap the two dots in the center so that you see three dots. When the two central dots fuse into one, just relax and hold your gaze steady, while observing the rest of the image in your peripheral vision. Hold the fused dots and glance slowly around the page. When you hold the patterns, your brain will develop the 3-D image.

Method Two

Hold the page so close to your eyes that it touches your nose. Relax your eyes so they are uncrossed and you see a blurry field of dots. Wait long enough to become comfortable, just spacing out and looking through the image. Now, slowly, no more than an inch per second, move the page away from your face. Hold the image level at all times. Observe the patterns on the page but do not look at the page. Notice the two dots appear as four. When the image is several inches away, the four dots will fuse into three. Relax, and you will start to sense depth in the picture. Let your brain develop the picture. If you focus on the page itself, the effect will disappear.

Be patient, and soon the 3-D letters will emerge.

When parents help their children learn to read, they help open the door to a new world. As a parent, you can begin an endless learning chain: You read to your children, they develop a love of stories and poems, they want to read on their own, they practice reading, and finally they read for their own information or pleasure.
