So I've suffered from amblyopia from a very early age after sustaining trauma to the head. Since then I've gone through all the usual channels to help improve the condition but now in my 30's it's all a little too late to 100% correct it. I'm a life long gamer and have never allowed my amblyopia to rule over me. I went through school being made fun of for it but made up for this in certain ways when gaming. I could take on any of my friends online and whip them good in any fps game, my good eye trained to the max to the point where accuracy wise I could more often than not come out on top. Sure it knocks my confidence some in public but behind closed doors, playing games over the net I'm just a gamer with skills to test like anyone else. I attended a gaming expo last year and as per usual I got the odd strange look from people I'd never met, it's something you get used to I guess. But once inside I managed to get on Crysis 2 and got nothing but compliments on my play style from folk who watched on. Attending such events makes me feel like I belong to something, when outside of gaming I tend to feel like a social outcast much of the time. I know I can't be alone being a gamer who suffers from (or should that be affected by?) amblyopia and I'm keen to find out how others who have it cope with it as both sufferers and gamers in a hobby where a trained eye is king above all else. So yeah. It feels good to admit I have the condition and quite happily game along with the best of them. Online it's all about letting my skills doing the talking and for once how my vision looks matters not. Just thought I would share with you guys anyway.
