Thanks everyone for your advice.BlackJack, I have no longer any light perception so glasses don't and won't help.
I've made an appointment with my neurologist, Dr. Maitland. I hope he'll be able to give me some concrete answers. Chris----- Original Message ----- From: "Blackjack" <blackjack2@xxxxxxx>

Yes, try this put on the darkest shades as you can get. This will help blockout 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 ofseeing. This is a slow process and will take 6 months or longer depending onhow 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 youput 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.

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 ofsyndrome 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.
