Hey Martin! Yes; we have spoken on Skype twice! I got back in town last week and I have printed out some of the material you provided and will be starting on that soon. The doctor and vision therapist who do the prism-only therapy think the CI will be treated after 10 visits. As I have mentioned before, I am very skeptical. Maybe that will treat standard CI symptoms in their experience but my [our] symptoms are not standard. My symptoms have not improved at all doing their therapy.
I have never had a 2 hour assessment with ANY of the doctors I have seen (1 optometrist and 2 ophthalmologists). It seems you have had better luck with the eye professionals...although if I recall it did take you a while to find the right one!!
I do not need a progressive lens as far as my standard vision goes. I am strictly nearsighted/myopia...but after reading the article you linked, it makes sense. I do experience eye strain with electronics near and far. Unfortunately, the ophthalmologist I am currently under the care of is out of town but I will be asking him if he has heard of the neurolenses. If they are, indeed, a gimmick, I may consider trying regular prisms full-time...and not just a prism patch occasionally that is embarrassing to wear. I am honestly skeptical that prism lenses will help at all but I feel desperate.
The neurolenses apparently comes with a money back guarantee so if they don't work, I could get my money back. What is terrible is that you would have to pay that same price to update a change in prescription down the line! Ugh.
The vision therapy here that employs the exercises you have learned to do is so unaffordable...if CI is truly the culprit of my eye strain, I would love to solve the problem and not rely on a crutch but it comes at a steep price. Like I said, I will be starting one of the exercises you gave me soon! I just need to find the notes I took.
If I end up trying the neurolenses, I will report here! I was hoping someone else on here had some personal experience.
