Are You Monocular or Binocular?

My husband, Andrew, had permanent strabismus at birth (meaning neither eye could focus). He had eye surgery as a toddler so he wouldn't be blind, but he never developed binocular vision, or the ability to focus with both eyes. Most agreed that the window for developing binocular vision was very short and at a young age.

The link to NPR tells a different story; one that has Andrew excited that he may have the chance to develop this ability even at the ripe old age of 38 (Happy Birthday to Andrew, yesterday, by the way).

The technique is called Vision Therapy. If you have a similar problem with strabismus or lazy eye, you can go to and see if there are any doctors in your area who offer it.

Who knows, you may start seeing the world in a whole new light!
