We present an optical mapping near-eye (OMNI) three-dimensional display method for wearable devices. By dividing a display screen into different subpanels and optically mapping them to various depths, we create a multiplane volumetric image with correct focus cues for depth perception. The resultant system can drive the eye’s accommodation to the distance that is consistent with binocular stereopsis, thereby alleviating the vergence–accommodation conflict, the primary cause for eye fatigue and discomfort. Compared with the previous methods, the OMNI display offers prominent advantages in adaptability, image dynamic range, and refresh rate.
