Here is a snippet:
Seeing in stereo is not only incredible visually, but there is another thing that seems to come along with the act of seeing differently and that is how I feel as I see. It is amazing. There are no words to describe it, it is pure joy. It is a long thirst that I am finally quenching...my brain seems to say, this feels good! When I see that space I think that we are not alone, there is something bigger in all that invisible glue, there has to be. It is divine. My little fat dog walking down the hall slowly towards me looking so different. It is almost like I am in a dream or in the past. I see things as they are, but in 3D they are imbued with something that is like a feeling of deja vu. I still haven't figured out why seeing in stereo does this to me.
This is very exciting for me to read, because it illustrates why doctors like myself provide vision therapy. It is not because we find tremendous satisfaction in knowing that a patients eyes are straight or are moving correctly. It is because we know what an amazing improvement in quality of life can occur. This is true for children or adults. Adults, like Heather, frequently can express their awareness of this improvement in a much clearer and beautiful way.
I look forward to reading more about Heather's adventures in Vision therapy!
