EYES

IT HAS COME 2 MY ATTENTION, THAT I SHOULD TRY 2 EXPLAIN MY VISION SOMEWHAT:
IT IS NOT BLURRED, THOUGH VASELINE ON A LENS MAY BE CLOSEST 4 U 2 EXPERIENCE DOUBLE VISION (DV). MAYBE BOUNCING ON A BOAT 2, IN CHOPPY WATERS, THOUGH THAT’S A GUESS, SINCE I HAVE LITTLE EXPIERIENCE ON A BOAT! W/DV, THERE’S 2 IMAGES, & I’M LUCKY 2 USUALLY BLEND THEM 2GETHER. 4 INSTANCE, LOOKING AT A CLOCK, U’D C 2 CLOCKS. I’M LUCKY 2 USUALLY C 1 CLOCK, BUT MY EYES & HEAD WIGGLE INDEPENDANT OF EACH OTHER, SO I HAVE 2 BE SUPER PATIENT & WAIT 4 THEM ALL 2 COINCIDE. SOMETIMES, ESP. IF I GLANCE AT STUFF, I C 2 IMAGES THAT SLOWLY BECOME 1. THE IMAGE ALWAYS CONSTANTLY BOUNCES-LUCKY I DON’T GET SEASICK! I TRIED AN eye patch, WHICH ELIMINATES 1 OF 3 WIGGLES, BUT BECAUSE I HAVE 2 COVER MY LEFT EYE, I LOSE PERIPHRIAL VISION & HAVE 2 TURN MY HEAD MORE, WHICH STINKS WHEN U CAN’T TURN YOUR HEAD 2 THE RT. VERY WELL! THE eye patch IS NOT A “CURE-ALL”.
HOW I C IS MORE FACTORS THAN DOUBLE VISION. MY EYES COMPENSATE 4 WHAT THE OTHER LACKS, SO MY VISION WORSENS W/O AN EYE. MY LEFT EYE OFTEN CLOSES, ESP. IN NATURAL LIGHT (WHICH I’M SENSITIVE 2). MY LEFT EYE WIGGLES TONS MORE & HAS WAY BETTER RANGE & PERIPHIAL VISION, BUT MY RT.OFTEN C’S BETTER, HAS LITTLE RANGE, BUT HAS NO PERIPHIAL VISION. I’M LEGALLY BLIND, SO IN THE HOSPITAL I HAD GLASSES THE NURSES NEVER PUT ON, DESPITE EVEN NOTES ABOVE MY HEAD (EXTREMELY ANNOYING), & GRADUALLY WE WORKED 2 NOW I WEAR CONTACTS MARK PUTS IN MONTHLY (I CAN SLEEP W/THEM-SO,ETHING I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD DO BECAUSE OF PREVIOUS EYE PROBLEMS). I COULD KICK MYSELF 4 CHICKENING OUT OF LASER EYE SURGERY AT 30, WHEN I STROKED ONLY 7 MONTHS LATER!
SOME DAYS R GREAT, SOME R BAD. DISTANCE ALWAYS MAKES IT HARDER, SINCE THE IMAGE IS SMALLER. THIS IS WHY LARGER FONT, USUALLY SIZE 24, IS PREFERRED. I ALSO READ LIKE MY ASL IS READ-AFTER THE 1ST FEW LETTERS R SEEN, I GUESS THE WORD & GO ON. IF I GUESSED RT., THE SENTENCE MAKES SENSE. IF NOT, I GO BACK & DO LETTER-BY-LETTER UNTIL I’M SURE OF THE WORD. READING IS HARD (1 WORD AT A TIME!) & I HAVE 2 KNOW I HAVE THE ALLOTTED TIME.
MY EYESIGHT TENDS 2 BE WORSE IN THE MORNING, SO I DO EYE EXERCISES EVERY MORNING, AS I STARE AT THE CEILING. VERTICAL IS GREAT, HORIZONTAL’S OK, DIAGANOL, ESP. RT. 2 LT., IS HORRID. COMPUTER, READING EMAILS & SMALL FONT ON WEBSITES, TYPING & EMAILS FROM OTHERS IS ACTUALLY AN EYE EXERCISE. IT TRAINS MY EYES 2 FOCUS 2GETHER.
I HAVE NO CLUE WHY, BUT IT’S HARD 2 DIFFERENTIATE GROUPS. 4 EX., ZACH LOVES LUBY’S (CAFETERIA STYLE FOOD). I CAN ONLY PICK OUT WHAT I WANT IF I’M TOLD WHAT’S THERE, EVEN THOUGH I C IT. I DIFFERENTIATE PEOPLE BY COLORS OF CLOTHES & OCCASIONALLY, HAIRSTYLES!

  1. It has been some time since I have read the Jenny Lynn progress reports. The discussion on ‘eyes’ was instructive and inspiring. Thank you for making that available to us. You continue to amaze us all and we wish you the best. Could someone get a message over to Grandma Irene to tell her of our love for her? The Utah-Arizona-Washington component thinks of her often and hopes all is well. RER
