Interocular Differences

Interocular difference refers in VR to a disparity between the distance between the eyes physically, and the distance between the optics of a stereoscopic viewing device. As a result, the stereoscopic images from the viewer do not line up perfectly with the eyes of the user and a stereoscopic distortion occurs, causing the eyes to focus and compensate unnaturally for the blurring of the image.

Cyberbullying Versus Physical Bullying: Differences Highlighted
It has taken a few years, even with the increased hubbub (and rightly so) about cyberbullying, where the internet is used to harass and bully an individual rather than physical bullying.
