A sidelong glance

I’m not sure if I had any idea of the world around me, not really; and I am talking literally here. I have been missing out on a secret garden, a whole series of scenes and stories. Amazingly this fringe world has been playing out in my peripheral vision without me ever knowing it.

I only know this because today I was introduced to my peripheral vision; the side-view that sits just beyond what is comfortable. It has opened up a Pandora’s box for me, this new slice of life has tickled my brain, and I can’t believe I have been overlooking it all this time.

If I was to explain in a sentence what vision therapy is; and let’s face it when we pass each other in the street you want me to elucidate what I’ve been up to in a nutshell, not a lengthy tome. I can now say, in the interest of brevity and succinctness that this week, vision therapy has not been about what I can see all day every day, but more about what I don’t see, and how I feel about that…

Try it for yourself.
