An example of this would be the moon - when it is near the horizon it is perceived as larger (size constancy) and/or closer to earth than when it is above our heads.
In people diagnosed with schizophreniaEdit
A study found that distance constancy, being closely related to size constancy, was poorer in people with schizophrenia than in a control group (labeled "normals"). "The result of poor distance constancy is that visual perception in schizophrenics is lacking in depth and that these patients live in a 'flatter' world."
- Visual Auditory Distance Constancy - Researchers explored the relationship between visual and auditory responses and how they influence distance constancy. A study found that at a certain distance, when a sound is sensed, the eye is stimulated slightly before the ear is.
