Reduced fields of view are neither necessary nor sufficient for distance underestimation but reduce precision and may cause calibration problems.

Abstract:

Watt et al. (Exp Brain Res, 2000, 135:411-416) suggested that a reduced field of view causes objects to appear closer than their physical distance. This suggestion is based on the observation that individuals terminated open-loop prehension prematurely when pretending to grasp a paper rectangle initially viewed through a reduced field of view. We tested Watt et al.'s suggestion in an open-loop pointing task. In experiment 1, 21 participants pointed at targets in three locations (20, 30 and 40...
