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.
First day of vision therapy - CHECK!
That was today - and it was intense!
It was fascinating to observe my thoughts and feelings as my therapist worked with me. I was a little girl again - trusting completely in my doctor, hoping that I was doing well, wondering if I was pleasing her, and curious as to how I measured up to her other patients... yknow, the other little girls and boys. LOL
My eyes were ridiculously sore when we were done.
She sent me home with a goody bag :) It's full of fun exercise equipment to work with over the course of this next week. "Fifteen minutes, twice a day."
My red and green glasses might be my favorite new toy. I'll admit that trying to keep the car from "passing the truck" is particularly difficult for me right now, but I'm workin on it... It's exhausting.
Funny. It's my vision therapist that's getting paid the big bucks, but I'm the one that hasta do all the hard work. :P - JOKE!
For the record, I am sooo ready and willing to do my part.
LET'S DO THIS!
