I was inspired to make an entry today because I am noticing a particular lot of improvement in my vision today. It is very overt.
It's the feeling of taking control of the lazy eye and having simultaneous control of it, and my normal fixing eye. It's a foreign feeling, but it feels really good and I'm noticing quite a bit more information, which is nice.
I'm not sure why--is it because I changed light tube filters to Alpha Delta on Saturday? Incidentally, I figured out why they call it Alpha Delta, Mu Upsilon, and so on. Each filter is actually two filters. So each Greek letter represents a different color filter (Alpha is red, and Delta is yellow). Together they make a orange-ish red. Mu Delta is green-yellow. Mu Upsilon is green-blue.
Anyway, I'm enjoying my daily new vision. Now I'm starting to relax, and enjoy the process of gaining stereopsis. I'm no longer in a panicked rush because I know it's coming, and I get to relax (except when doing eye exercises) and watch new information coming in every day.
When I do light tube exercises, it just feels right, like I know what I'm doing now and I know what kinds of sensations I should follow. I've developed a binocular instinct if you will.
I have a weird theory. I think it's, in principle, possible to go from stereoblind to having stereoscopic vision without doing any vision therapy exercises. It's a certain way that you look through your eyes. It's tricky to know how to do it because it doesn't cause you to see any differently and there's no feedback, but by doing it, you're flexing the binocular muscle. If you keep doing it, you'll eventually have stereopsis.
The purpose of vision therapy exercises is to guide you toward the proper way of seeing. If you're sensitive and receptive to the guidance that VT is providing you, you should in theory, not need to do vision therapy very much and you'll gain stereopsis much more quickly than someone who unthinkingly does the workout and then forgets about it and goes on with his day.
Just a random thought.
