Is the whole more than the sum of its parts?

  • When I test each eye separately line 20/20 is blurry. However, when I use both eyes together the line becomes clear. Has that happened to anyone else and is it normal?

  • Btw here is my prescription:

    • OD: -7.00 SPH, -0.75 CYL, 022 AXIS
    • OS: -6.25 SPH, -0.75 CYL, 167 AXIS

Yes, It is normal, It happens usually when you hold it in position for a while. Maybe you have cleared up the image while each eye is trying to focus on a single point.

this is normal, usually because you have some sort of astigmatism.

The brain uses both eyes to see. If you cover one eye, does it fully block your vision?

The brain somehow interpolates and improves what you see.

I have strabismus and I’m happy to report the EM/RL method has been working for me so far. Strabismus is a condition where the images from each eye are not fused into one image and the picture from one eye or the other is ignored.

Yet, even with strabismus, I can also see the same effect you’re seeing somehow. :relieved: I’m guessing I see it to lesser degree, but I’m happy it’s something.
