Visual Confusion vs Diplopia

My visual sensory adaptation to infantile strabismus with childhood eye surgery is intermittent visual confusion, not diplopia, with probable ARC.

This problem was not diagnosed until I was 63. All my life this problem has caused me degrees of spatial, learning, and emotional dysfunction.

For 63 years, maybe it's a stroke, get an MRI, your gaze is weird, you have a learning disability, lack of emotional intelligence, trouble driving or reading or facial recognition, or lost in…

Energetic EyeHealing

Just as a blood test or an X-ray reveals functional reasons for health difficulties, information about the eye conditions can be decoded. There is a personal approach for each eye disorder. There is a deeper meaning for lowered eyesight, and eye diseases. These are deeply linked to the problems that show up in our lives. A disturbance in vision points to survival perceiving. Optometric vision therapy, Bates training and natural vision improvement provide specific exercises and instrument…
