The Better To See You With

Not only do these "fab" colored glasses look cool, they help Neil exercise his eyes. He's still having some trouble getting them to work together. He can make one or the other look at you, but never both at the same time. He uses the glasses with a 3D chart to try to focus on two concentric circles. If he can make one circle look closer than the other, his eyes are cooperating. Believe it or not, it's tough work!

Right now, Neil is still wearing a prism lens on the left side. This forces the two eyes to work together until Neil can do it on his own. He's very anxious to be rid of the prism because he wants to wear his contact lenses again. The neuro-optometrist thinks it will be soon. In the mean time, it's practice, practice, practice.

Hey Neil - we have something in common - I did vision physical therapy just like that when i was about 10 or 11 years old. The glasses are pretty cool, I must say!

We've been thru the vision therapy, and it is very hard work! I hope this turns out very successful for Neil. He sure has a full schedule. :)
