By: Susanna Zaraysky

One-Eyed Princess shows the journey of a stereoblind person doing eye muscle and brain exercises to straighten her eyes and rewire her brain to wake up dormant binocular brain cells. Along the way to seeing the world in more detail and appreciating depth, Susanna learned not only to see the physical world anew but also to feel reborn into a new inner world.

How would you feel if at the age of 29 you found out that about 97% of the population can see in depth and you can't?

Reading about Professor Sue Barry's journey from 2D to 3D vision in Dr. Oliver Sacks' article "Stereo Sue" in The New Yorker, Susanna Zaraysky discovered that she could only see in 2D and that there was a way she could improve her depth perception via binocular vision therapy. Susanna was born with crossed eyes (strabismus) and had two operations to cosmetically straighten her eyes. However, no eye doctor had ever told her that the asymmetry in her eyes caused limited depth perception. Finding out that her limited depth perception explained why she had always struggled with driving, parking, walking down stairs and other activities like tennis and partner dancing that required hand-eye coordination, she yearned to try vision therapy to improve her vision.
