"Yes, I have had setbacks in VT as well. The optometrist explained it to me that once I broke down old and incorrect patterns of seeing, exercises that I could once do easily or without a huge strain became more difficult. It's best to ask your…"

Setback in vision therapy

I have been working with vision therapy for around a year dealing with my amblyopia, which is complicated by the fact that the lazy eye had a retinal hemmorage around 12 years ago and has a fuzzy spot in the center where I can't see details.  All of a sudden, I have seemed to slip back considerably.  Some exercises that I had no or little trouble doing before are now almost impossible. I have been able to do others, specifically working with the Brock string without any change.   It feels as if…See More

"Great to hear yr story.  I'm only 2 months into VT and am really excited.  I think you can explain how things work...  but explaining the sensation or feeling is beyond words."

Ambylopia and cataracts

I just discovered this site after reading Susan Barry's book.  I would like to know what people's experience has been with situations where not only is there ambylopia, but the eye has cataracts, and even before they developed was evaluated at 20/100.  Is cataract surgery a prerequisite to starting vision thereapy?  In this situation, are the expectations for progress limited?  Any other words of advice?  (P.S.  I'm 66 years old)Rick Tejada-FloresSee More
