About
34 year old strabismic in vision therapy for 15 months to develop binocular vision. This is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life! Even living in post-war Bosnia with carcasses of buildings around and landmines was easier than this. But I'm committed to seeing in 3D.

I was born in the former USSR with strabsimus and was sent to a preschool for retarded kids because I looked so different. I had my first surgery to straighten my eyes when I was 3 when I came to the US. That operation left me with a wandering eye. Then at 17, I had another surgery to cosmetically straighten my eyes.

When I read "Stereo Sue" in the New Yorker in 2006, my life literally turned upside down. I had no idea that I saw in 2D. No clue whatsoever. It took me several years before I decided to do vision therapy to develop binocular vision. I've traveled to over 50 countries and lived in 9, this journey into my brain is by far the most difficult one I've ever been on.

(Source: http://www.infantsee.org/x3636.xml) President Carter supports the Infant See Program for infants in the US to get free optometric screenings. 

Does anyone know which of the two grandchildren are amblyopes? I'd like to contact them about their experiences, if they did…

my audio essay about 2D vision in the 3D world

I was on KQED radio, the San Francisco NPR affiliate, on Tuesday 20 December 2016 with an audio essay about my asymmetric eyes, binocular vision therapy, learning to see in more depth and being neglected by the medical establishment. 

Here is the link to the audio and text:
