We had success at SUNY school of Optometry today, so I have some distance glasses that allow me to see singly. There are issues though, mostly in some ways it is like looking though a fish eye lens, there is some distortion along the edges. This means I have to be really careful climbing stairs. It also means that I need to be careful turning around, it will take a moment for my eyes to adjust. hey told me to take some time to get used to them in a familiar surroundings. I do need a different pair for close work, but things are getting better. They also have scheduled an appointment with their head trauma specialist, mostly to see if there are exercises that I can do to get the eyesight to converge, but that is not until March. I have one more appointment with them in April to see how the double vision has changed, maybe it will be gone by then! I am writing this with the close glasses and my eyes still dilated from the 2 1/2 hours of testing they did again! I think these doctors like me!
