Today the occupational therapist came over to see how mom is doing. He was impressed by her progress in regular daily activities (brushing teeth, eating, putting on clothes, doing dishes, performing the Gangnam Style dance), but unfortunately there is no way to speed up the recovery of her vision. He said there are 6 muscles in each eye, and it only takes one inactive muscle to result in double vision and blurriness. She will continue her daily “eyexercises” which consist of looking at word flash cards from various angles and distances to stimulate the retinal nerves. Her goal is to get back to work in 6 weeks, so she is hoping to find out more information during her appointment tomorrow.
