I just read a post about APS causing vision problems. I wanted to ask you guys a question about my own vision problems. In 2006 I was diagnosed with a slight Exotrphia in my right eye. It is a condition where one eye does not track properly with the other eye. It is supposedly caused my one eye having bad long distance vision, and the other eye having normal long distance vision. Apparently one blurry picture is mixed in with a clear picture, as both pictures from each eye are melded together inside the occipital lobe in order to create one single three dimensional picture. Since one picture is blurry, the brain tends to ignore the input from the bad eye. If this was the case, I would not have stereoscopic (Three-D) vision; but I do. My uncorrected eyesight in my right eye is 20/100 and my left eye has normal vision. The Ophthalmologist kept on asking me if I ever had any mechanical trauma to the eye of which I have never had any eye injuries that I know of. I also didn't have any vision problems when I was younger. Do you guys think this loss of vision could have been caused my APS? Also, I have been getting a lot of problems with blurred vision lately. Sometimes I have to shake my head, or squint my eye a few times to get my vision to come back into focus. I don't know if this is APS related or if it is related to my diabetes.
One other weird thing that I would like to throw out there is my inability to keep my car straight when I an driving on the freeway. I actually had to stop driving commercially (I used to drive a semi truck) because I would weave on the road kind of like a drunk. I never got into an accident, I was actually a good driver, but I felt unsafe because of it. That was way before I started wearing glasses. I don't know if any of you guys have ever taken an eye test on a Stereoscopic viewer. It's an electronic machine that you look into and read the different lines that they ask you to read. There is an entire set of letters on the left side, in my left eye's line of sight that I can't even see. They kept asking me to read off the letters and I was like "what letters?" As it turns out, if I close my right eye "the bad eye" the missing lines/letters would then show up in my left eye's line of sight. I could only see them if my right eye was closed "which you aren't supposed to do" but I didn't tell them what I did; so I passed the test. It just kind of freaked me out. Any how, I'm sorry for the long post, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
