So I tried wearing my eyepatch today for the "wacky tacky" dress code event thing today. I am very surprised by the results.
After only one and a half hours of not using my left eye (which has historically been my better eye), I cannot see clearly with it,, even with my glasses. My right eye works fine. I think when I use both, my brain compensates with the view from my right eye to let me resolve words. With my left eye everything is a blur.
It's scary that it takes such little time for your brain to let go of something. I can't imagine what it would be like if I left the eye-patch on the whole day. Or if I blindfolded myself for a whole day. What would sight be like after I took off the blindfold,I wonder.
I am now going to take a short nap to see if that cures the problem. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. Let's see how it goes.
Can't tell if I'm winking or blinking,
