Eye To Eye

Paris "Laze Eye" Hilton

I am not a gamer at all. I have never really figured out how to use those little machines like the Playstation,  Xbox and Nintendo because I have really tiny hands. But with my diminutive digits aside, even I am am very aware  of Nintendo’s latest console named 3DS which is all set to be launched next Sunday onMarch 27th.

OK, so it is understandable that the excitement level is at a fevered pitch among the tech geeks and console players across the planet as they await to uncover what Nintendo has in store for them this time. So as an avid blog reader of Ava Aston’s Muckery you must be thinking to yourself,  OK, she has finally flipped her noggin this time. And you might be mumbling to yourself that perhaps I am a Geek blond girl and not a Greek blond girl. Well, I am here to say don’t get your pantaloons all in a wad because I am indeed a Greek, not a Geek. But there still is a special reason why I am excited about the impending release of the Nintendo 3DS.

According to Michael Duenas and the American Optometric Association the Nintendo 3DS, once slammed as an eye-destroying device, the Playstation is now being thought of as a tool for diagnosing eye disorders. According to Digital Trends, optometrists feel this could be a useful tool for early warning signs of a disorder called strabismus, or better known as a lazy eye. Other than Paris Hilton, (who doesn’t like to talk about her Lazy Eye publicly) we all know someone else who needs to get a Nintendo 3DS to diagnosis their strabismus ASAP don’t we?  Hint: He is my manager and his last name rhymes with a popular breakfast cereal that has a rabbit for their mascot!

The way that it works is that people who play the new Nintendo and who can’t see the 3D effect could possibly have a lazy eye. Dizziness or discomfort caused by the 3DS could also indicate a vision problem. So this could be a godsend to a contingency of cranky old men like Mr. Bricks who have a Lazy Eye but are living in denial. All you have to do is hook their butts up to one of these little gadgets and if they can’t see the special effects – bingo, it’s official  – they have a Lazy Eye. Paris Hilton doesn’t deny it she just doesn’t like to talk about it.

So other than being kinda creepy, what is a Lazy Eye? Well in simple non-medical terms it can be due to being cross eyed or wall eyed. The danger of the condition is that the noggin comes in time to rely more on one eye than the other and that part of the brain wiring gets mucked up and the circuitry connected to the less-favored eye fails to develop properly leading to potential blindness in that eye. The classic treatment, as I mentioned in the blog the other day is an eye patch.

NOTE: No managers or socialites were harmed during the writing of this blog!

    • Addy – great to hear from you again. I like your idea to have Mr. Bricks review the console and also perhaps to see if indeed he has a lazy eye….although I am no doctor I know he does…I can see it!!

    Wow maybe my little brother needs that! He has a lazy eye…. I know that a classic treatment of it is doing “pencil pushups” which is bring a pencil to your nose and crossing your eyes, holding it, and then letting the pencil out to your arms length while staring at the pencil… My bro doesn’t like to do them at ALL so it doesn’t help very much, but if you do them 30x a day, it should help! (Maybe mention it to Mr. Bricks…? hehe :D)

    • Oh my Tia, I want to print out your comment and give it to Mr. Bricks with a dozen pencils. 🙂 It seriously cracked me up. before my blog did you know that Paris had a Lazy Eye? See, The Greek blond girl is educating the public one blog at a time. Maybe it will become a new trend… and the thought of Mr. Bricks in vogue just cracks me up.

      Blessings,

        hahaha that’s great! No, I didn’t know that Paris had a lazy eye. Yes, educating the public is a good idea! I’m sure it’ll become a trend, Ava! 🙂

    Lazy eye! It is consuming my world right now. Both my kids have it thus recently, both have glasses and one is in vision therapy for it. I can’t even pronounce the technical name….so, I had to write about in my blog the way I do it best, with humor, history and fiction…. Good post. Never knew about Paris Hilton’s le.

  9. Ava, most adults are aware that they don’t see special effects and have had to deal with the way others notice their lazy eye for years. I appreciate that the new Nintendo 3DS can be be helpful in diagnosing this problem in children. Thanks for the heads up! What I wish more people knew, (and The Compulsive Writer has mentioned) is that vision therapy is useful in overcoming this disorder. It’s much more than pencil pushups and has even garnered attention in the last little while thanks to Susan Barry’s 2009 book “Fixing My Gaze” in which she details her journey into seeing in 3D. It’s the path I’m currently on and I invite others with strabismus, or “lazy eye” to join me!

    • Thanks for setting me straight!! I appreciate your comments. Sometimes just speaking about a subject brings much needed awareness to it. That is what I try to do one blog posts at a tome in a hopefully somewhat entertaining fashion.

      Thanks again for your comment.

      Blessings,
