Hi, I went for my second assessment for VT yesterday. My amblyopic (right) eye is at 20/200. My optometrist thinks I can improve this acuity to 20/70 at minimum and then we can work on the convergence. She says I may need a prism lens.
That said, in order to work on my acuity she suggests occlusion therapy for 2 hours per day for a month after which we can evaluate the progress. She suggests video games such as Tetris. I am wondering is their another option I can add to this -…Continue
The following is a copy of a post from my FB page. This was an effort to educate my friends and family about what's going on with my eyes - I wanted to add it here too.
My vision started changing at the beginning of 2011. I noticed that it was difficult to keep my eyes focused on the same thing, at the same time. By July of the same year, my eyes were crossed significantly. When I looked through my…Continue

All medical tests are clear. Yay for good news! So, I'm a healthy girl... with alternating esotropia; unrelated to any other medical condition.
That established, the plan is as follows:
Actively participate in VT for the next 4-6 weeks. With good progress over that time, continue with VT.
In the (hopefully unlikely) event that progress is not promising, surgery will be the next course of action -…
