    Well, yes, when someone has blind in one eye, it will just cause depth perception easily. Some reports have shown that people who are blind in one eye have impaired depth perception. And you should know that depth perception results from binocular disparity. And binocular disparity is something that the brain compares the images from each eye and uses the degree of difference to estimate distance. And being blind in one eyes will have effects on your actual depth perception. And also, it will just cause dizziness. But on the other hand, it has been proven that even get depth perception, it is ok for you to have driving.
