Yeah, I waver between optimism and pessimism. But none of that wavering changes the fact that my vision is changing. My vision has never been better than it is now and it is because of the exercises that I'm doing. Those reasons alone make quitting an impossibility. In the most basic sense, what I'm doing now is the same as I've done in the begnning. Constantly looking at what I'm doing, sensing what exercises producing the best results, and then tweaking the exercises.
I've changed my regimen a bit. Now it's 20 minutes of fixation cards, five minutes modified Brock String, and 20 minutes of Vivid Vision. And I'm doing less vision therapy. I'm going to cut down to doing vision therapy three times a week. Let's just see how that goes. I don't think it's going to have a negative impact.
I mean, because of vacations and visiting my family in New Hampshire, there have been periods in which I wasn't doing any vision therapy. But I do find myself in idle time playing with my eyes and playing with this middle zone between switching eyes, and trying to stretch that space out as much as possible so that I'm using both eyes more and more as time goes on. If you know what vision therapy exercises are doing, you don't really need equipment for vision therapy. You can do vision training anytime by consciously doing what it is that the vision therapy exercises constrain you to do.
The 20 minutes of fixation cards seems to have been a good decision.
I am doing weird things to my brain by doing this exercise. I am really finding the spot and paying as much attention as possible to what is happening when I switch from eye to eye. Doing this appears to lessen eye preference over time, and I'm noticing significantly reduced suppression when doing the Brock String as a result of this. Also, Vivid Vision is becoming trippier. VR--I think--with stereopsis is going to be an entirely different experience. Slowly, I'm tearing open this door in between my eyes. Finding this new muscle and building it. That is the key--first finding this capability--and then building on it.
I think I'm onto something. I will keep going.
