Asymmetry is a hallmark of Explorerordom. How about being nearsighted in one eye and slightly farsighted in another? This is not very common. But how common in Explorers? Thoughts anyone?

I still have an astigmatism like that. It normally does not interfere with anything.

Interesting. Wonder how common this is in Teachers or other GT's for that matter.

My type B- explorer son has had issues with his vision since he was a kid. He's seen different ophthamologists over the years as we have moved a lot, but one doctor in particular recognized when he was around 9 that he actually would read with one eye while the other one didn't track the words on the page. We didn't realize it, but it explained why he often lost his place when he was reading. The doc recommended we patch his good eye for about one hour a day to train his weaker eye to work.

Now he is practicing the natural vision improvement techniques and only wears his glasses when he drives.

My youngest son (O- hunter/explorer) needed an eye patched when learning to read, also. (used to be called lazy eye)
I knew something wasn't right at age 2 but the opthamologist said I was an "overly concerned mother"... By age 5 he needed glasses because he was acutely nearsighted!!!!!
As I age I am becoming more farsighted yet see better with right eye.
I have the fingerprint asymmetry hallmark of explorers.

I am nearsighted in my left eye and slightly farsighted in my right. I also have a "lazy eye" it is noticeable in pictures. Just got a Rx for progressive lenses.

I'm not an explorer but, as I've got older I need glasses for reading.  However, my left eye is slightly worse than my right for reading close-up, but my right eye is slightly poor long-distance, whereas my left-eye isn't.

Hmmmm. Never thought my visual asymmetry as a part of my explorerness, but it makes sense.
I have diagonal double vision, corrected by prisms in my glasses lenses.  
I think that horizontal or vertical double vision is more common, although I don't really know.

I have slight differences in the eyes. I thought that was normal for everyone. Also the dominant eye is different than the dominant hand.
I still am a little nearsighted, tho it is nice to be able to read a sign farther away that I wouldn't be able to when I was young. I needed mild reading glasses since my later 50s & try not to use them too much so I don't get dependent on them. I still can read well in sunlight, so that shows how good it is for us!  I credit not needing the reading glasses till I was older than average to diet!
There are so many in this country that start using them in their 40s.

I maintain that our country is too dependent on glasses & that the optometry business promotes that. Yes, we need them, but many of us should not wear them all the time! I can even see the difference if I have been reading a lot with the glasses. My eyes don't see as well later, but slowly get better.

I see I have gotten off track.   SWAMI says I am an explorer even tho it isn't listed on my info. I thought I was a hunter, then gatherer, & now am an "explorer light" I suppose! The conceal carry reference is that I thought I was a hunter!

Modifier/correction!
Whoops! I see that explorer is listed in my funny way.  I still think that the relatives on my mother's side are all blends & don't fit a certain solid genotrype. I think Mr T is very classic in his BT & GT.
My kids seem to be blends, too!

So funny! I'm an Explorer and have indeed different eyesight on both eyes  

One's shortsighted and the other one slightly longsighted (can never remember which one is which) and I have a strong astigmatism on both,,,,

But since I'm going to get them lasered next week, won't be much of a problem anymore

I have a neice who is age 5, and last year my sister noticed she would close an eye when looking at things close up, and an eye check up revealed short sighted in one and far sighted in the other. And a nephew who had normal/far sighted vision, at age 18 one eye changed to short sighted.

For the 5 year old the Doctors said this often affects how children learn and can be a real obstacle when it is from a young age.

Youngest son (A+explorer) had a lazy left eye which was discovered at 5 when a surprise up close photo of him showed the misalignment caused by slow accomodation.  At prep he suffered headaches if reading up close for too long or trying to focus on small print.  The behavioural optometrist gave him exercises to do, had to wear glasses for a few years to keep him long sighted.  We also gave him homoeopathics, herbs & supplements & a 80% raw diet (had cooked eggs & fish- we didn't know about BTD then but he had allergies and other minor health issues)
At 17 he has perfect vision
