When using stereoscopic displays, decoupling between convergence and accommodation can cause eyestrain. This paper proposes an adjustment method to automatically fit convergence at user fixation depth to accommodation by using eye tracking. Two different adjustment methods are proposed: one binocular, adjusting the images for both eyes, and one monocular, which adjusts only the image for the non-dominant eye. Preliminary results suggest better user comfort and a preference for binocular adjustment in high adjustment scenarios, while the adjustment is less noticeable with the monocular system.
