You Know you are in Vision Therapy When..

 Found an amusing  post at Sovoto, "You Know You are in Vision Therapy When...".  Some of them are directly applicable to me and some aren't.  I don't see in double.

You find yourself staring at napkins because you’ve never noticed the undulating texture of the napkin. You say, “Wow, I never noticed how complicated this napkin is. It looks like an orange peel with all its curves and dips.” 


Image via Wikipedia At a street crossing, while waiting for the light to turn green, you are distracted from the traffic as you are amazed at the concrete and how unsmooth it looks. 


 You stare at people you’ve known for a long time (like your mother) and can’t figure out why they look different, until you realize that they have more wrinkles on their face than you had previously noticed! (Hopefully, you don’t announce your new finding to the newly-aged person.) 


You finally have an excuse to become a couch potato because you have little energy to do much else. 

You can be a kid again and spend lots of time every week staring at Humpty Dumpty, clowns and other children’s images and tell your therapist or doctor when you see them in double. You also get to see things that don’t exist. You see five dots on the wall, but the doctor has only shone four dots in red and blue. 

Most importantly, anytime you think you are going crazy, you can just blame it on the vision therapy!
