I have cerebral palsy on my right side and over my early years, it made my left eye strained. So I was 30/400 by the time I was a teenager. I don’t really focus out of my right eye. I can sense more than see movement, and I would have to really strain to see, say, how many fingers someone was holding up. I can’t drive. If I put my hand over my left eye, I see my left palm. If I close my left eye, I can sort of fixate on whatever is in front of me.
I gave Lasik a shot in 2000, and was told I’d likely have to wear glasses again within the decade. They were right. But my eyesight was corrected to 20/30. The amazing part was that my right eye did not float as it did before. I would try and makit that happen and it felt as if the muscle was strengthened.
Right now my eyesight is about 20/40. And every time someone questions why the Lasik didn’t work, I let them try on the glasses I had in 1999.
