My son’s vision

It’s official - after about a year with vision therapy for my son, he no longer needs vision therapy!

He went to vision therapy for about 18 months or so. 

According to the vision therapist, Dr. Tod Davis, my son no longer needs vision therapy!!

He can see in 3D and he is doing great! Oh my gosh!

Dr. Davis said that my son should be evaluated again in a year. 

I am hopeful that his vision will stay fantastic. 

Wow - the miracles of modern day vision therapy. 

I am so grateful to Dr. Tod Davis of Virginia Vision Therapy.

Seeing the Beauty

A friend has enjoyed seeing photos I take wherever I go. I take a LOT of photos. 

My friend remarked that for someone who has vision issues, I definitely notice beautiful things & she is grateful I share them so other people can see them, too. 

So I thought: what if I share some photos on my blog here? 

So, perhaps you will enjoy this gallery of beautiful things I have photographed. 


A gorgeous sunset, and the human elements of electrical power. 

My 2 dogs, running with a friend of theirs - Jasper is the black American Cocker Spaniel in the front. Sparky is the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (with perhaps a mix of Chihuahua in him, because his ears are short … they are sticking up in this photo because he is running!) … and their friend in the back, chasing Sparky. 

I love how Jasper poses for the camera. 

Sparky taking a doze on a friend’s ottoman. 

Jasper’s cute butt while he looks out the window. 

Another gorgeous sunset. The Shenandoah Mountains near where I live. 

Sparky and Jasper romping - ears up!

A fire sunset with the snow in the foreground. 

Baby pinecones forming. I actually tasted one, too. It tasted like pine. Definitely interesting. 

Lilly pads in a pond. 

Interesting formations on a tree. Not sure what they are, but I like them. 

Boats on a lake, fog in the background. 

Purple Irises. 

Forest in front of a lake. 

Jasper looking at the camera. His nose. This one may not be a beautiful shot, but it’s fun. 

A chipmunk!

First sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. 

A local caterpillar in Shenandoah. These are harmless to people. But they make gigantic nests in the trees and kill off tree branches. Then they turn into small white moths. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Maybe I should do more of these. This is literally, “How I See Things.” Photos of things I see. 

Flickering Eyesight

So, I have known for a long time that my eyes don’t work together. It has taken me almost 50 years to be able to describe what I see to peop...
