I would appreciate any thoughts anyone can give on this matter, and\nthanks in advance.\n\nI am 35 year old female. When I was 8 years old, I experienced my first\nstrange eye problem. I was in piano lessons under flourescent light. As\nI looked at the page reading the notes (the print was pretty large and\nclear) it appeared to shrink and pull away from my field of vision. It\ncontinued until everything in my field of vision appeared flat and\ndimensionless. Then, I began seeing double. I cried because I couldn't\nread the notes. After closing my eyes and resting it seemed to return\nto normal. My mother took me to an opthamologist. I was very young, and\nhe diagnosed a slight astigmatism and slight far sightedness. I was\nprescribed glasses, which helped general fuzziness of small print but\nnot much more help. He indicated something like "ciliary spasms"?? And\nthat the condition, since it only occurred sometimes I would likely\noutgrow. After subsequent visits where I did not improve, we tried a\n"stick-on prism" lens that make a huge difference in my depth\nperception (like everything seemed so 3-d! I recall being very\nexcited!), but never got to getting a ground in prism.\n\nTo this day, I do have this occur to me on occasion. When this happens,\nI lose nearly all depth perception. At that point, I usually close my\neyes and rest for a while rather than let it get to double vision\npoint.\nI also have nearly chronic daily headache. I do not wear my glasses,\nand all optometrist visits indicate a very weak astigmatism and have\neven been told that I don't need them enough to worry about.\n\nIn general, my vision is likely the typical astigmatism. Text (fonts\nlike courier are really bad) tends to move a bit and appear slightly\nblurred. Black words on white background, and courier type or serifed\nfonts are worse for making my eyes get tired. The lighting does seem to\nmake the problem more pronounced, as does general working at computer\nor reading for long periods. I looked at Irlen syndrome, and I\nrecognize that a gray background with black text is easier on my eyes.\nI don't know that I think this colored overlay approach is a real\nsolution to my problem, but if it could reduce eyestrain???\n\nDoes this sound like a typical binocular disorder? Does this sound like\nsomething that could respond to some office therapy visits? Should I be\nwearing my glasses? Should I have a prism lens again? Any ideas?\n\nThanks again for reading this far!
