Back in the exam room, Emma's appointment turned very normal. Mostly, we did more of what we'd just done in the opthamologist's office. The only real things of note we're on a test on Emma's "blind" eye, they put a little screen in front of her eye and asked her if she could see better.
"Yes, as a matter of fact," Emma said. She seemed impressed. "The letters are a 'C' and 'N'," she said with confidence. The screen made her vision worse in the left eye.
"What was that?" I asked the assistant.
"It was pinholes that change the way that light is refracted. We just want to see if there's a way to eke more vision from the blind eye."
It had been seven and half years since we had discovered that Emma was blind in her right eye. No one had ever tried to eke more vision out of that eye. I was intrigued, but the focus at today's appointment is Emma's left eye.
