专业人士可以从理论上探讨,斜视弱视的本质是什么,如何影响患者生活,什么是最好的治疗方法。但是,没有什么比现实中患者的真实故事,更感人、更准确、更有力量。
 

 

维森特的故事(28岁,来自西班牙马德里)

 

WHAT VICENTE SAYS:

维森特的讲述:

 

I am now 38 years old and working as an airline pilot. Thanks to the vision therapy that I received ten years ago, I am now able to devote myself to the profession that I love.

我今年38岁,是一名飞行员。多亏我十年前接受了视觉训练,现在才能从事喜爱的职业。

 

 

When I was five years old, I was found to have hyperopia and astigmatism in both eyes with strabismus and amblyopia in the left eye. At that time, my parents had not heard of visual training, so I followed the advice of ophthalmologists and I was prescribed glasses and full-time patching.

我五岁时,双眼发现远视和散光,左眼有斜视和弱视。那时,我父母还没听说过视觉训练,所以听从了眼科医生建议,验配了眼镜,并开始全天遮盖。

 

 

I grew up thinking that, except from the discomfort of wearing glasses, my visual problems would not prevent me from leading a normal life. This proved not to be true. Since childhood, I always wanted to dedicate myself to the profession of flying, and, at the age of 28, I had my first aviation medical examination. Until then I had not been aware that my visual defects could be a problem. I was crushed when I was told that because of my strabismus, amblyopia, and lack of binocular vision that I was declared unfit to fly a plane.

我从小就以为,除了戴眼镜不舒服,我的视觉问题,并不会妨碍正常生活,但事实证明并非如此。我一直想当飞行员,28岁时,接受第一次航空体检。在那之前,我一直没意识到,我的视觉缺陷会成为问题。当我被告知,由于斜视、弱视和双眼视缺乏,无法驾驶飞机,我深受打击。

 

Even though I was disappointed, I decided I was not going to give up my dream of being a pilot. I decided to go to different eye doctors to get second and third opinions. One of the ophthalmologists I visited, a specialist in aeronautical vision, worked in an ophthalmology center with an optometrist. She said that there was possibility that my vision problems could possibly be improved, and she referred me for an evaluation with a behavioral optometrist, Gloria Hermida Salamanca.

虽然很失望,但我还是不想放弃。我去看了很多眼科医生,其中一位医生,是航空视觉专家。她说我的视力问题,也许可以得到改善,推荐我去找眼视光医生,凯莱•萨拉曼做进一步检查。

 

Gloria explained to me that it would have been ideal to have visual training as a child. Although, even at 28 years old, it could be possible to correct visual defects, provided that I work hard in the therapy program. I came to her clinic for more than one year, and I practiced between 20-60 minutes per day at home.

萨拉曼医生对我说,在儿童时期进行视觉训练,效果会很理想。但即使是28岁的年龄,只要我努力进行治疗,也有可能纠正视力缺陷。我在她诊所治疗了一年多,并且每天在家练习20-60分钟。

 

 

The results have been incredible. At the conclusion of my vision therapy program, I passed the aviation medical examination successfully! Not only was I able to enter the profession I love, but my visual acuity improved significantly, as did my overall quality of life.

结果令人难以置信,视觉训练结束时,我顺利通过了航空医学体检!不仅如此,我进入了自己喜欢的职业,而且我的视力得到了显着改善,我的整体生活质量也大幅提高

 

In conclusion, I can only say wonderful things about my experience with vision therapy. I cannot stop recommending it, not just to those who have similar problems to mine, but for all those who want to improve their quality of vision, either on a professional or personal level.

总之,视觉训练太好了。我要极力推荐它,不仅是给那些有类似问题的患者,也包括所有想提高视觉质量的人。

 

 

OPTOMETRIC DATA AND OPTOMETRIST’S COMMENTS:

验光数据与医生的讲述:

 

Vicente was 28 years old when he came to my office. He has worn glasses full time since the age of five and was patched full-time. he reported that his visual acuity improve after wearing the patch, but that his visual acuity decreased each time after removing the patch. The cycle occurred over and over again until the patching was finally stopped. At my initial vision evaluation, I found amblyopia and esotropia, combined with a vertical deviation, a best corrected visual acuity of 20/40 in the amblyopic eye, and no stereopsis.

维森特来诊所时28岁,他从5岁开始戴眼镜,全天遮盖。维森特报告,遮盖后视力会改善,但停止遮盖,视力又下降。这种情况多次反复,最后遮盖停止。维森特第一次来诊所检查,发现弱视和内斜,并伴有垂直偏斜。弱视眼矫正视力0.5,没有立体视

 

OPTOMETRIC TREATMENT:

治疗方案:

 

•Contact lenses

•Optometric vision therapy

1)隐形眼镜

2)视觉训练

 

 

Motivation is crucial in any rehabilitation process, and Vicente was highly motivated. The vision therapy program lasted for approximately 18 months. At the conclusion of his therapy, Vicente had 20/20 visual acuity in each eye and he developed good stereopsis. Best of all, he was able to achieve his dream to be a pilot!

任何康复过程,积极主动都至关重要,而维森特非常积极。视觉训练持续18个月,治疗结束时,视力恢复到1.0,立体视建立。最重要的是,维森特终于可以当飞行员了!

 

This case is a good example of what is possible with hard work and the guidance of a skilled behavioral optometrist. Success can be obtained in patients with amblyopia and strabismus, and good visual acuity and stereopsis can be achieved, even in adult patients.

这是一个很好的案例,说明即使成人斜弱视患者,只要努力训练,加上眼视光医生的正确指导,也可以成功提高视力,建立立体视
