Corrected Vision?
« on: September 17, 2009, 06:53:20 AM »

My vision is fine.  Karen was saying the other day how she is needing her glasses more and more.  She couldn't even see the tv the other night.  Her entire family has corrected vision.  Maddie keeps saying she is having trouble, but when we take her in they say she is fine.

My wife and her side of the family have poor vision.  Good thing her dad is an eye doc.  (don't feel like trying to spell it this am) 

I'd have maddie checked about by an eye doctor that specializes in vision therapy for children.  Vision is so much more than reading a chart off the wall.  It is intrinsicly tied to sensory and motor skill development.  Look for a doctor that treats all facets of it. 

Here is the type of facility I'm talking about.  I bet your area has at least one person similar.  I know they have a school that takes some of the same ideas and applies them to the classroom in MN.  So some doctors should be on board with the concept.

Exeprt on Vision Therapy. 
Seeing clearly is not enough. For many people, reading and hand-eye coordination tasks can be very difficult. The act of sight not only includes ones eyes, but it also includes the neurological activity that processes the visual information. Throwing a ball or skiing down a hill are learned activities; to do either well takes practice. Those who do it best are those who started learning at the earliest age. Vision plays an important role in the learning of these activities. Vision is the steering mechanism and is the main activity that provides feedback regarding what really is happening. We provide Vision Therapy to help individuals learn how to process visual information and develop better hand-eye coordination skills.

Developmental vision specialists:
As developmental vision specialists we do not see you as just "a pair of eyes" hoping to see "20/20." We take vision care to the next level, evaluating vision as the complex system it is. We go beyond the "traditional exam" giving consideration to your entire visual system (physical, functional and perceptual) and its affects on your daily activities and performance. In order to have maximum success with many school, work and leisure activities the visual system must perform at an optimal level. We are committed to provide you quality vision solutions to help you reach your performance goals.

I need two choices. I've worn glasses/contacts since I was 23. Two years ago my arms got too short for whatever it is I'm reading so now I have cheaters.

I am thinking of test driving some bifocal contacts.

Blind as a *goshdarn* bat. I've worn bifocals for 12 years.  Sad
