All major retinal pathways in the Siamese cat are abnormal, with almost total crossing of the projections to the pretectum and superior colliculus. These projections represent a marked disruption in the customary neural substrate for binocular vision, which implies a consequent impairment in stereoscopic depth perception. Crossed eyes, commonly seen in the Siamese cat, may therefore arise from a neuroanatomical defect in the primary visual pathways.
