The Perfect Drive

After 3 months of resting my eyes and brain, I was ready to go back to the vision therapist and be re-evaluated. Two big break-throughs had happened during the rest period and I looked forward to showing them my progress.

The Main Reason Change is So Difficult

Self help gurus, psychologists, doctors, and religious counselors all work to help us to change out of our old dysfunctional ways and into a new and improved version of ourselves. Myself included! It’s a worthy cause. Most of us want to improve ourselves and live a happier healthier life.

I'm quite sure no one had ever questioned Dr. Old’s methods. She warned me I wouldn’t be able to read without cheaters. But her ‘MD’ didn’t give her insight into my predicament so I insisted on a new prescription.

Cause and Effect

Last week I visited the Vision Therapy doctor to be evaluated. I’m a little over half-way through vision therapy to get my eyes to work together. My brain was challenged by the new exercises given to me by the therapist and the doctor said I was making good progress.

What do you think's possible? After 23 weeks of vision therapy, I'm holding onto my dream of seeing the world with depth. My progress is slow but sure. Join my story and see what insight there may be for you.

I’ve been making a lot of progress with vision therapy.  As it's continued, my peripheral vision has increased.  Last week I was out on a run and felt that I could see 'more’.  I’ve run literally hundreds of miles but this day was different.  I could recognize things around me and in the distance that I’ve never noticed before.  But what does my vision therapy have to do with you?

Making Progress One Step at a Time

One step at a time.  It’s such a simple concept yet so hard to carry out.  We get impatient or bored with the process.  Each day brings a new challenge to start again.  It’s a principle, however, that will help us accomplish each and every one of our goals.

I Saw 3D!!!

At the end of 2016, a friend recommended I look into vision therapy.  I have no depth perception because I was born with a lazy eye.  I had believed the conventional wisdom which said that if I didn’t learn to use my eyes together by the time I was 3 or 4 years old, I never would.  Well I can now kiss that wisdom good-bye!

I went to Session 7 excited to tell my therapist, Dawn, how much better I’d been feeling.  The half hour recovery sessions that left me laying on the couch covering my eyes and ears were behind me.  The blue light used to calm my brain was working.  I was on my way to better vision.

After a few exercises she put me in front of the blue light.  It is meant to calm the brain.  As I starred at the blue disk in the dark room, it happened.  My right eye was being used.  I always defer to my left eye.  It was easy and different.  Very strange.

The reason why I write about my vision therapy is to document the mental and emotional realizations along the way.  I’ve come up with the tagline ‘gaining perspective through vision therapy’.  I’m also excited about the prospect of what can happen in my life and the lives of others.

Session 2 brought new challenges.  Like a 3rd grader excited about finishing her homework, I reported what I had done the previous week to my therapist, Dawn.

Session 1

I arrived 15 minutes early.  Embarrassed to show my excitement, I drove to the drug store 2 blocks away and wandered through the aisles to calm myself.
