I have an appointment in a couple of weeks for an assessment. It has taken a while to get in. I am started the vision therapy the week after that. Last time I saw her I was just starting the the homeopath, which helped me tremendously after a several month bad period, so we decided not to start the vision therapy at that point. Now she is planning on reassessing me all together and then starting.
She was more focussed on traditional vision issues, my lack of convergence, the strabisumus, than my eye movement problems. I don't know what she will come up with regarding the inability to focus statically.
I have been doing the VRTs again for 3 weeks now, twice a day. Its changing in baby steps, but I think it is helping. I can now do x1 holding the card rather than having it far away. I still need the letter pretty large and I have to go incredibly slow, but then I can keep it from moving. Up and down is easier than side to side.
I still can't focus my eyes for more than a couple of seconds, but the involuntary movement away from what I'm focussing on is less strong, they don't move as far, and I can at times refocus on the same object. I guess after 16 months of either no VRTs or doing them wrong baby step changes are to be expected???
