When explaining the technique to my wife I told her to cross her eyes until she saw a third image between the two originals then concentrate on that image - seemed to work for her!

Good luck!

Having said that my daughter simply can't get them at all!
Well I've tried with books and on the ipad and on the desktop and apart from eyes watering and everything going out of focus I fail.

And now apparently I have the start of a cataract in one eye, which is a worry as I do notice a loss of balance between the eyes. So I don't think I'm a likely candidate for natural viewing...

But thanks for the suggestions. I will just enjoy the pictures I can see
