Today is day 7 of patching my non-dominant (right) eye, and I'm happy to report that it's been very encouraging 😃
Like I previously mentioned, I first patched my dominant eye (left) for a week, and had a slight/moderate reduction in symptom occurrence and intensity. After patching the non-dominant eye for a week, it feels like a moderate/major reduction. I've been using the patch for 6~ hours per day, and my worst symptoms have only been gritty eyes and slight fatigue in the eye I've been using. No headaches, no throbbing temple pain, nothing like that.
I also performed test in the video from this post xelaos. I noticed that if my right eye is covered, then uncovered, my left eye seems to slightly adjust itself when I uncover the other eye. I'm not entirely sure what that means diagnosis or treatment-wise, but it seems that I do have some kind of binocular vision dysfunction (I think?)
The only downside is that I was recently checked for glasses, and the pair I ended up with do nothing for flicker. I also tried Neurolens with no success, which is a little surprising, considering those are supposed to help with BVD. I'm hoping that I just didn't get the right pair for my eyes, or maybe the optometrist didn't notice my issue.
My next step is to speak with my ophthalmologist + neurologist and see if there's anything new we can try with this new information. I'll definitely report back if I learn anything that may help.
