Depth perception is the ability to judge the distances of objects, which also allows us to see them in three dimensions. Obviously, images that strike the retina are two dimensional, but because our visual systems have the capacity to interpret stimuli in terms of relative depth, we see these objects not as flat, but as having some depth.
