Since this was empty, I decided to create a group "Adult Strabismic Patients' Forum" which has the flexibility of creating multiple discussions of the many issues we face and a place to interact with one another via comments.
Feel free to join this group if you have any interest in the vision therapy journeys adult strabismics have begun after reading of Sue Barry's stereopsis story in Fixing My Gaze.
Also, three adults have been blogging about their vision therapy and related strabismic issues and were featured by Dr. Press in January 2011 on the Vision Helps blog here
These "children of Stereo Sue" are
"Squinty" Josh http://squintyjosh.blogspot.com/
"Strabby" Sally http://strabby.wordpress.com/
and myself "Wide-eyed Wonder" girl, Lynda http://leavingflatland.wordpress.com/
We look forward to meeting and mixing in our new group!
I'm another adult child of "Stereo Sue". Being an adult going through vision therapy is tough and sometimes filled with moments of wonder and awe at the new things I can see. It's as though I'm going through a slow renaissance. My blog on this topic is at www.oneeyedprincess.com.
I like reading the blogs of others who are going though VT as adults because I get to see how they experience this wonderful and frustrating journey to see with both eyes.
Thanks so much for introducing yourself and for adding Josh, Sally and I to your blogroll.You've been at this for longer than all three of us put together!
I've added your blog to my "blogroll" with a link to your first trip to the DO office. I can so relate to all those emotions! I too am a test whiz and "flunking" those quoits twp office visits in a row almost got me rejected completely. After awhile, it isn't so intense. Of course now, after my branch retinal artery occlusion, it's totally "Que sera, sera."
Folks can click on all your other links to see how far you've come. But I want them to see how it was at first.
Have you joined the forum? I'm thinking I've seen comments from you, but I'll look for you there next. If not, do click the first link in this post and become a part of the group.
Yes, I joined the forum today. I've been meaning to get active ever since you sent me the invitation but I only got around to it today.
I posted a question of my own about language confusion and fatigue and answered some other people's questions.
Thanks again for the creation of this group!
