North! Sue Barry on “Place Blindness”



Susan Barry (aka Stereo Sue) talks about being “place blind,” a disability related to face-blindness, as Dr. Sacks discusses in his new book, THE MIND’S EYE.

“I blame my poor navigational sense in large part on my vision. Up until age 48, I was cross-eyed and focused on only what was close and center. I rarely took in the visual periphery, never made any mental maps of my environment, and was continually disoriented and lost. Once I undertook optometric vision therapy and learned to straighten my eyes and see in 3D, I was able to take in more of my surroundings.”
