"Sounds awesome, Kathe! I am really enjoying the fact that my eye is straight most of the time, especially when conversing. Straight eyes are a such a bonus even if other things like central fusion are still challenging."
I joined the 3 year club (VT) in late September (actually closer to 2.5 taking into account time off here and there). I am on a 3 month and possibly longer sabbatical from VT. I asked for the time off because home, business, and finances…"
So glad you are able to travel comfortably. Mexico sounds dreamy! My two cents: Most people are clueless about our VT experience; however, I truly believe they don't mean to be disrespectful. Just as we are unable to experience 3D…"
"Thanks again for starting this group.
Ah, yes, the artists discussions! Back in the day, I did a lot of drawing from a model. I was always good at it and loved the process. Still do but no time of late to partake. I have a theory that the…"
I applaud your tenacity especially with the side effects you have been having. They are real and hopefully, temporary. I have been in VT for over two years now and I'm here to support and commiserate which I have done far to little…"
"I have experienced vibrating wall in closed in spaces since doing VT! I would describe it as a flickering of light. I usually notice it on my left side (left amblyopic eye). I remember a lot of visual snow as a child but not as an adult.
"It sounds like you have made great progress! I fell asleep during Star Wars when I was 18...on a date! I have always had a difficult time concentrating on action movies. I look forward the change in my ability to focus. I have the same reaction to…"
"Hello everyone and welcome Pablo!
I have been doing another see-through occlusion exercise. It involves putting a dab of goop- something like silly putty- on the inside third of one side of my reading glasses. This is really hard to describe! I look…"
For the longest time we (during therapy) patched my strong eye and worked on tracking with my weaker eye, although we made a point of alternating the patching of both eyes as a warm up. Then for quite a stretch we did mostly binocular…"
"Congratulations on your progress!
You describe my experience precisely; with the exception being that I am much older and I assume that the process is much slower! The acuity in my weak eye has improved greatly but I have a long way to go. I have…"
First of all, congratulations! Was it morning sickness after all or the VT? Probably both!
I don't know a thing about the genetic component of strabismus (or lack thereof) but I can relate my experience. I, too, was born with infantile…"
"I've been away from Sovato for awhile too...This thread compelled me to jump in-
I've had a few similar experiences lately! The first was a few weeks ago at the gym. After a strenuous workout, I made my way to my locker and glanced at my…"
I can't keep one language straight on the best of days! You just have more info in your brain to get scrambled!
I believe you are talking about Dale Chihouly. He was a glass blower who lost an eye in a car accident. Glass…"
"Thank you, Susanna!
The question as to how my artwork will change is a common one. I have no clue how this will go. I have had to make some changes recently in my studio practice. A few days ago, I was so wiped out and queasy after VT, that I…"
"Hello everyone! I joined this group a day before my 6 month evaluation just a few weeks ago but haven't had the time to chime in. I'm absolutely thrilled to have this forum. Here's what I sent to Sue Barry just prior to the…"
