The ophthalmologist wrongly diagnosed me as strabismal and I received ”eye-patch” and glasses for farsightedness. Not until 14 years of age it appeared to me that something was wrong.

Because of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP,) I can no longer see a normal computer monitor, and thus use a speech synthesizer, along with  screen reading software to read the text to me.
