Well here's a paper in the May 2013 issue of Clinical Ophthalmology by several French op…Continue

....Adults with amblyopia, a common visual cortex disorder caused primarily by binocular disruption during an early critical period, do not respond to conventional therapy involving occlusion of one eye. But it is now clear that the adult human visual cortex has a significant degree of plasticity, .... One possibility is an inhibitory signal from the contralateral eye that suppresses cortical inputs from the amblyopic eye. .... Here we provide direct evidence that alleviating…Continue

Hi Sovoto followers,
I just had an article published at BBC future that I thought might interest this group. In fact, it tries to answer some questions that I've seen here recently (such as, how is it that I can see 3D movies even though I'm stereoblind?) It's about a man who was exotropic his whole life and then suddenly acquired stereovision while watching Hugo in 3D.
Anyway, I'm posting here because I expect this forum to have the most informed…Continue

The lady of the flies
Victories in VT sound bizarre to those with normal vision. But I know I can share this here and get some nods of “Yes, that’s happened to me” or at least some laughs.
In September, I reported on my newfound appreciation of the visual details of mildew. Yes, that annoying black stuff that grown in your shower/bath that you want to get rid of. I was able to see it in better definition without my glasses or contacts.
