There's Nothing Funny About Double Vision

Hi my favorite readers! Recently, something came to my attention that I believe is worthy of sharing with everyone. It applies to public misconceptions. The topic is living with double vision. I started experiencing double vision as a result of a head injury I sustained almost 40 years ago.

Years ago I learned to not discuss certain things about myself until I knew someone rather well. One topic in particular was double vision. In medical terms it’s known as strabismus (“lazy eye”) which results in diplopia. I found that whenever I talked about it with “the general public”, jokes were everywhere. And…all types of misconceptions existed.

Popular songs used double vision as a sign of being so in love you “couldn’t see straight.” As an example that immediately comes to mind…Foreigner does one song, I believe it’s titled “Double Vision.”

Movies have regularly depicted this condition as entertainment. “Double Vision” is used to define looking at twins, having a fungus taking over an evil mind and other depictions.

In real life, there’s nothing funny about living with double vision. Period. As much as I believe in the importance of finding humor in every situation, when someone finds out I have double vision and then asks me (while laughing) how many of them I can see…I go along with it at first. Then, if they ask again …it’s not funny. My eyes have to work to focus on anything. Sometimes it can be tiring. It can be frustrating. I can feel it. This applies even with my prism.

Depending upon the severity, double vision can result in loss of balance, nausea, headaches, mental confusion and other ailments. What’s funny about that?

Anyways, thank you for listening to my rant. I only wish the general public was more understanding about living with double vision. Those living with vision concerns completely understand. All I can do is spread the word to hopefully increase awareness among the misinformed.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
