  • NancyNancy on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyMargriet, hello and thanks for your comments. What may be getting ignored is the emotional component of restricted eyesight, how you feel about it. Some people can adopt healthier physical practices and see steady improvement. Others, often the more sensitive...
  • AvatarMargriet Bierens on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallySometimes in life it is strange. The last weeks my vision is less than before and I don’t know the raison? I have glaucoma and use eyedrops three times a day. The eyepressure was oké last week but my Eyesight...
  • NancyNancy on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyThanks, Jeff! It's good to her from you.
  • AvatarJeff Ackerman on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyNancy, this is a very beautiful story.
  • Doug MarshDoug Marsh on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansHi Rub, I appreciate your comments as well. I still deal with sensitivity to bright sunshine and the effect it has on hampering my visual acuity when I go back indoors. However, the sensitivity has abated gradually over the years...
  • NancyNancy on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodRoman, it's the same for me. For most of my life my true friends were books because I had so much trouble connecting to other people. Now I have some folks I care about so much, who also care about...
  • AvatarRoman on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodI find the 'tribe' analogy exactly accurate, Nancy! This is what I feel is happening at the moment. Slowly but perceptibly. And when I feel that it makes me feel *alive*. Thanks again - also for providing a platform where...
  • NancyNancy on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodRoman, again, yes! I love that you’re journalling about all this, as that practice has brought me great awareness, and even comfort at times. And it's affirming to look back at earlier entries to see where I used to be,...
  • AvatarRub on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansHi Doug I really appreciate your comments I have suffered recently from glare and sensitivity to light. Wonder if you could recommend any approach to improve it. Thanks
  • AvatarRoman on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodNancy - Thank you very much for your kind response! As hard and unfair as all this seems at times, I am more and more thinking of my 'process' as a true opportunity to - step by tiny step -...
  • NancyNancy on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodRoman, thanks so much for writing. Your words brought me right back to my own childhood where the world was so big and scary and I was so little, yet being forced to see by my glasses. I salute your...
  • AvatarRoman on Being Seen, Being UnderstoodI have just entered the below musings in my 'vision log', and thought I'd also leave them here (nothing directly related to the article); hope I'm not intruding. Glasses at five: 1.) lock shock, doubt, insecurity, fear, bonding failure in...
  • AvatarChristopher Lane on Where Dr. Bates Worked – Pictures of HistoryI think they may be actual photos but coloured in at a later stage! black and white looks better agreed. There is [must be] an app that transforms b + w movies into likely colour transformation hinted at by costumes...
  • AvatarChristopher Lane on Where Dr. Bates Worked – Pictures of HistoryInnovators are often ridiculed at first. Often have a passion to serve and deep respect for humanity - prefer to empower a human being rather than control... so keeping the "spirit alive" prompted this response. Osteopathy like many holistic health...
  • AvatarRoelof Wielinga on Where Dr. Bates Worked – Pictures of HistoryHi and thanks for your posts. I’ve been following you for quite a while, and it’s great to see someone keeping the spirit alive! Your founder, ‘Bates’ has a great resemblance with the founder of osteopathy: ‘Still’. According to my...
  • DavidDavid on Lemon Juice for Eyestrain or Dry EyesThanks for the comments! Hopefully people will consider your words about putting strange things in your eyes.
  • AvatarJon on Lemon Juice for Eyestrain or Dry EyesI am an Optometrist and yes this is a long post. But if you want to know about the truth about putting lemon juice in your eyes, please keep reading. This is not made up and I do know what...
  • NancyNancy on My Myopia, Or My Mother’s?Eva, this is a great insight about your history. I've often thought that I saw/felt what was going on in my family when I was a child more clearly than my mother did, and I needed to blur it out...
  • AvatarEva on My Myopia, Or My Mother’s?None of my parents had any vision problems, but they both had and have narcissistic personality disorder. Back there they didn't want their children to have their own point of view on life. They wanted us nearsighted so they could...
  • DavidDavid on [VIDEO] Slow Down or Speed Up?Yes, I think saccadic vibrations must be the same thing. They define more types of movements too, like drifts, but I feel like that introduces unnecessary complexity.
