It is a shame that MD's fail to acknowledge the studies and literature which have demonstrated that "lazy eye" (amblyopia) is best treated as a binocularity problem.

More patching only REDUCES the binocular exposure.

New Research Regarding Lazy Eye Treatment Ignores Vision Therapy

Recent research indicating more patching for lazy eye treatment ignores the positive impact of vision therapy.

Question of the day: Do some folks see this all the time?

~~~

It's not that people actually see the correctly-written words as if the letters are all scrambled. This text is an example of why "whole language" training works for many people. Many of us are quite good at filling in the gaps/ "visual closure." Having context and a good sense of grammar helps-- it gives us a "lead" on what comes next. So fluent readers do not get stumped from the above.

Whether people see the correctly-written text AS IF it is jumbled is a different matter:

People who struggle with reading (dyslexia, for example) may also have vision problems which interfere with their ability to keep their eyes on track. Often times, they are not yet sophisticated readers, and they are reading the letters out of order, and trying to fit together the sounds to predict possible words which contain those sounds. Often, their tracking problems interfere with their ability to sound out the word in the correct letter order.

Some children do see the letters out of order, if their eyes are not well-coordinated. The temporary doubling and returning to single can make it look like the letters are moving or dancing on the page.

Both of the above challenges can be readily supported and remediated with vision therapy.
