Living With Diplopia

One of the consequences of my car accident, 33 years ago, is the fact I sustained eye damage from my head hitting the dash and then going through the windshield. This resulted in a damaged nerve and weak muscle in my leg eye.

Due to this, I have lived with diplopia (double vision) for this entire time period. Only ten years ago did I find out that there was a prism available for eyeglass lenses. (I wear glasses). The good part about it is, I know what makes the symptoms worse. So, I avoid these triggers.

Upon recuperating from my car accident enough to where I could function in society, I went to an ophthalmologist about what to do regarding correcting my double vision. I was told that there was a surgery available. Good news. However, it consisted of cutting a healthy muscle in order to align my eyes. No so good news. I like to keep my healthy muscles.

This is a chapter excerpt from my upcoming book about living in a body cast for two years.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
