I just got back from a very exciting trip to London. I have been receiving vision therapy for the best three months or so and have posted a couple blog posts since joining Sovoto. I was excited to head to London and see the city in 3D stereo vision, and boy, what an experience it was.
First off, I've spent a lot of time in the city before - last year, I lived there for four months during a study abroad semester, so in a way, London is a bit like a second home to me. Still, I saw things about it I'd never noticed before through a whole new set of eyes.
In Southwark, for example, which is the Southern part of London, the buildings lean in close together on small narrow streets. For the first time ever, I saw the buildings coming toward each other, and it was so overwhelming that I almost had to clear my vision. Same goes for the high streets in London, which seemed wider and taller and more bustling than ever.
I also had the pleasure of going to a 3D movie while I was over there (Fright Night). I was a bit nervous at first. I went to the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, the biggest movie screen in Britain (65 x 85 feet in size). And honestly, it was one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. The movie was about 2 hours, and for at least 95% of the film, I saw the full 3D effect. Very few times, the image would double again or I saw some halos or artifacts, but for the most part, it looked the way it should have been.
I'm sharing a few photos of myself with my eyes in alignment for posterity.
As they say in London - "Cheers!"
