Synesthesia is a special form of perception where vision can truly become a symphony. Rare individuals reportedly see sound as visual images.
Hi Dr. Kisling, I have a question concerning lazy eye. I had lazy eye surgery 16 years ago because of constant exotropia . Surgery went well, although I still have double Vision 16 years later. 2 years ago I went back to surgeon to see what treatment options I had for my Lazy eye. He suggested prisms. I was skeptical at first but then decided to try. Boy was I wrong. The prisms ticked me off. First symptom was headaches and blurriness/ distorted Vision. I phoned him and said that I needed to adapt. I gave them 5 days and symptoms got worse. I went back to office and to my surprise they were base out (they were supposed to be in) . After I got glasses fixed tried them again for 8 days though still had same symptoms. After 5 office visits he referred me to Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. I went to local optometrist during wait for appointment and the Dr. Said it was the glasses that was the issue. He suggested I stay off the prisms and instead tried eye exercises along with vision therapy. I’m still waiting on eye hospital though my main concern now is I still have headaches blurriness and visual distortion. Optometrist said symptoms should linger with time. I have been like this for over a year now. Not noticing any improvement. My question is will those distortions fade away or will I stay like this seeing these distortions? I am really concerned as my vision was sharp before and now it’s terrible.
Sorry that you have gone through that. It is not normal for symptoms like that to persist for a year. I would get another opinion. You could have another reason for the visual distortion, blurriness, and headaches that just happened to occur as a coincidence at the same time.
Well, I just had an MRI and EEG recently and both came out clean. Thank you for your thoughts anyways!
Hi Dr. Kisling, I have a question? I found a website that talks about chromatic abberation which is the dispersion of light inside a lens. It talks about how a lens such as a prism, separates dark and bright elements of white light and that in real World circumstances, it causes permanent loss of visual details. What do you know about that?
