The middle of November 2014 seamed like a good time to do my comeback!
As a show jumper that is.
Lara was on her upmost best behavior and we decided just to jump the 1meter class.
Warming up I probably jumped more fences consecutively than I have done In the last 18 months but it was ok!
I do still suffer from double vision but when I either ignore it or decide to follow only one of my “visions” it’s alright. I probably wouldn’t jump anything much bigger than 1 meter when I have the double vision. It’s not that I have 2 identical images side by side, they are kind of on top slightly slotted next to each other, slightly on an angle… I promise not great for deciding distance!
I tried closing one eye and that was better… But then I closed the other eye. Disaster! I didn’t close them both at the same time because that would have been beyond stupid, but I came to the realization on the way to a small-ish vertical in the warm-up that I am not only right handed I am also very right eyed! Closing my right eye made the approach impossible. The “distance-depth” to fence was unreadable! By relaying on the right eye was much better.
I will venture on in trying to improve this silly double vision thingie…
Keep Smiling 🙂
When I’m tired you brighten my day doubly!!!
