I've been cursing lately when trying to do crafts or work at my computer.  Thought it was time for new glasses, but when I went to the optometrist, I discovered that it's much worse.  I'm developing a lazy eye.  Miniatures are indeed hazardous to one's health.  Apparently the muscles in my right eye are straining when focusing at close range, and have decided to give up.  So it's not that I can't see, it's just that as soon as I concentrate my focus on one area for a few minutes, I lose binocular vision because my right eye wanders off to look at something else.  It can be fixed with therapy, let's hope.  I received my colourful Brock String and new glasses on Monday.  With diligent exercise and not working on miniatures for more than a few minutes at a time, I should see (literally!) an improvement in about eight weeks.
