Last week I went into Optometrists Today in desperation. My migraines were worse than ever, even though I am using my mouth guard faithfully. I discovered that I had Convergence Insufficiency.
Which basically means that while I have 20/20 vision in both eyes, I can’t use them at the same time. If I do the muscles strain causing the terrible migraines that I’ve become accustomed to.
To be honest I wasn’t expecting anything to be wrong with my eyes. I’ve come to terms with the fact that they’re crossed sue to the botched surgeries I went through as a child. I went in there thinking that I’d get a prescription for the light sensitivity I had and that would be the end of that. I was a little upset that something was actually wrong because it isn’t fixable. I’m hoping the glasses help because I really don’t want to add to the list of specialists I’m currently seeing.
I got a bright blue frame because I wanted something cheery and I’m heavily sedated to make the pain tolerable until the glasses get here.
Cue thumb twiddling.
