It’s almost three years ago since i tested covering one eye, and understood that it can be a way forward. That was the start of a journey from old devices (iPhone 4S/iOS7 & 2009 HP Elitebook/Win7) to today, now i can use all devices and screens with both eyes open 🙂
I have gotten many questions on this forum about my training, in threads and PM, and I have tried to answer as good that i can. I have crossed my fingers that others will have the same progress, and pushed people to keep up training. But I haven’t heard about someone else that had progress with both eyes after one-eye-covered-training. That sucks. So I have wondered if I did something more than covering one eye that led to success, and now i have an idea I want people to try, with a bit inspiration from Eye suppression theory as origin of our issues.
So this is what i want people to try:
- Look with both eyes open.
- Keep an bad-screen-phone in your left hand, a bit to the left.
- Put your right hand open and standing between your nose and your right eye.
If you have done right, you can see things in the room with both eyes, but you can only see the phone with your left eye. Keep up training like this, and we will see if someone get some success.
List of users that covering one eye works on (i hope someone will test my idea):
“I could use my camera display with one eye very well, two eyes were problem.”
“It is frankly embarrassing to have to do it, but so far I've managed to slog along for a few months using Windows 10 by patching my right eye. To me this proves 100% beyond any doubt that the issue (for me at least) is 100% related to my bincular vision processing be adversely effected by the way Window 10 displays the screen.”
“I regularly just use my smartphone for 30min-90min hour a day and just close my right eye. So i have close to zero problems with the device compared to severe issues when i use both.”
“This is really interesting. I've been trying patching my right eye while using my MacBook and it's noticeably better. Not perfect, but definitely better.”
”I seem to be able to tolerate otherwise intolerable software while using the eye patch. Also my concentration is better.”
”I notice relief, too, when looking at general ’temporal dithering’ output (quotes because no proof) like Firefox, Windows 10, etc. while covering an eye.”
”When covering one eye, the dizziness seems better when using the laptop internal display.”
”I have been using the eye patch not consistently, but quite often. Surprisingly, after struggling the first couple of times, I can now read quite easily without getting an headache.”
From Private Message
“ I did the patching 3 weeks ago for about a week and it worked, but after about two weeks of no pain, it came back.”

And so on … I didn’t had the time to find all users that had success with one eye …
