Hey Subs, refresh my memory . . .

I remember there were issues with your vision in the beginning, that once resolved helped a lot in your recovery. What were they? Just a prescription issue? Did they not have the right refraction? Were you helped with glasses or contacts?

I'm getting to the age (43) where the upclose reading is a bit blurry, which is very normal for someone my age, but I've noticed also some blips of visual difficulty when looking at certain things in motion. Actually I can watch things that move, i.e. car driving by, or my dog running around, etc. The difficulty comes in having a conversation with a person and trying to track on their head/face as they move around. It can give weird sensations, particularly if we are sitting somewhere where the background is also "busy." Just makes me a little foggy or woozy or something. Do you know what I'm talking about?? Just wondering if this is left-over fun or just normal visual stuff for my age. Maybe I should get myself to the Optometrist . . .

How go the windows? We dropped our big house plans -- too expensive.

Hi Terry

My vision prob track back to submarine accident--where I lost binocular vision---had happened so long ago---forgot about it---Univ of Penn---figured it out---and added some vision VRT's for it---which fixed the prob...

Know what ur talking about---it is "left-over fun" eventually it will go....

Still working on windows---thinking about replacing them all (37)---depends on the $$.......

Re: Hey Subs, refresh my memory . . .

Thanks. Know what you mean about the window $$. We just got another bid for some plumbing work which put our project up to $165,000 and counting . . . All that for just 1,000 sq. ft. of a finished basement. No wonder we've decided to stop. Jeez, we're in the wrong business!! Those contractors -- what a racket!!
