this seems like a good idea Blackjack; thanks.

I didn't pick up on his having partial vision, and that being part of the
problem.  I had assumed the images were from his trying to picture what was
around him (I think all of us who had any sight try and do that; to build a
mental image of the world and things around us).  I can see where distorted
partial vision would be especially hard to cope with.

Yes, try this put on the darkest shades as you can get. This will help block
out these images and light. You also can put on what I call blinders that
will block out everything. Now to adjust to this little by little go to
lighter  shades so you can see more  and more up to your capability of
seeing. This is a slow process and will take 6 months or longer depending on
how well your body adjust to light and images that are a blur. What is
happening is like wearing the wrong type of glasses for your eyes. If you
put them on and they are to strong it will make you dizzy and sick feeling.
It will take time but your body will adjust. Wish you well.




Thanks,

Hello, all:
 
I've now been blind for almost two years now and so far I'm handling the
mobility and orientation pretty well but sometimes I get really dizzy.
I know that my brain is trying to fill in the holes it's missing since
losing my sight.  I can handle those weird images most of the time:  cars
driving by, trees passing me, even hovering above parks and houses like
superman..but sometimes those images begin to spin uncontrollably and when
I'm walking I literally begin to tip over.  It's weird and strange and
sometimes I think it's going to hinder me from even leaving my apartment.
Has or does this happen to anyone?  My doctor told me it's called a type of
syndrome but if it's my brain, how do I stop it?  Nothing's worked so far.
Any help for something like this?  I hope so.
Thank you for any responses.
 
Christopher

                  I use RFB&D for my textbooks, and before I could use the
service on my Victor Reader, I had to purchase a User Authorization Key.
That might be where the $10 comes in.  Just an observation, but you might
want to call to find out for sure.
