"Hi Danny and welcome. I sure haven't been all too active on these boards since I stopped VT about a year ago. I just had my yearly eye exam, though, and was very pleased that my vision had not deteriorated at all (in fact, my prism---which…"
"Hi Danny Lee,
I have no experience with the vertical prism, but in my experience, changing the prescription may require some time to get accustomed. When my contact lens was changed from -1.75 to -1.5 (I have lens on only one eye), at first it was…"
"Hi Susan, I'm not sure if you'll see this message, but I wanted to ask you and others some questions. A little bit about me: I discovered I had strabismus at age 18. I did patching as a child because my left eye turned in and I had…"
"Frances, yes, it sure is complicated and it seems a lot of strabismics go merrily through life adjustingand compensating just fine thank you, until something or someone brings our attention to it all (thanks, Sue!!). It is indeed totally…"
"Wow!! I am so happy for you!! Those of us here can sure appreciate the significance of this experience. It's a huge step to learn to be aware of what your eyes are doing. As I've been working at this VT stuff, I, too seem to be more…"
"Let's see if I can explain this (always hard to describe how one sees!)......
First of all, I have learned to converge my eyes to look at one thing with both eyes at the same time, but I also have a vertical component to my strabismus. So,…"
"Frances, I really think you've described my situation, too. I know when I have both or one eye working when I think of it, so (usually) know if I'm using both to see something. My thereapist keeps telling me to keep both eyes…"
"Lynda, I, too, have the habit of always wanting to "check" what I'm seeing with on or the other eye. In fact, I read once (probably on this site) that everyone sees more clearly when they look with just one eye --the example of…"
For the most part I do see the string images going through the same point when using the Brock string but this has taken a lot of practice. Also, my vertical deviation gets worse the further away I look so I sometimes see the string…"
"Sue, you say you still have some vertical issues (as do I) so why is it we can see floaters so well, as well as other fusion targets (so to speak)? My theory is that my eyes/brain need to focus on something concrete and then the vertical issue…"
"You know you're in vision therapy when you are so excited to notice you are using BOTH eyes to see the bottom of the glass you're drinking out of that you have to hurry up and post it -- but only to those "in the know""
"Hi Nikki, I think I do understand your need to "understand" what's happening. I've not used my eyes together for 50 yrs, so I know I have a lot of mental blocks to using them better. I realize I need to grow new neurons as…"
Like you, I can see the "floater" pictures and I love these. I see them almost immediately.
I too have problems seeing some images in the Magic Eye books. I can see the depth and make sense of the picture pretty…"
I have worked some with Magic Eye stereograms and know exactly what you are talking about. At first I could only see small "pieces" of depth. I have now gotten to where I can see an entire image in the picture, but I…"
