Holmes' syndrome II
A disorder of space perception caused by brain injuries and characterised by the inability to localize stationary or moving object in the three planes of space because of lack of ability to estimate distance and improper judgment of size and length of objects. Estimating distance is the most difficult. Visual acuity good; stereoscopic vision seldom lost. Associated with impaired fixation, disorders of accommodation and convergence, and absence of the blinking reflex.
