Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It sounds like you are having problems with possible ghost images or mild double vision due to the blurry vision in the eye that has been affected by the iritis. I don't think that, at least at your age, the problem is with any sort of brain rewiring.
Using an eye patch is a good idea and won't hurt a thing.
Are you available to chat/
The question is about how the information processed through one eye clear and one blurred affects the process.
Is there anything else you would like to ask me tonight?
The question is ...Does blurred vision in one eye affect the capability to process and evaluate information? If so what is the condition called and how do I make the best of it?
It is called asthenopia. The best thing to do is have a complete eye exam by your ophthalmologist to see if there is a correctable issue contributing to your vision problems. If not, then your idea of wearing an eye patch is a good one. Of course, you would have to check local laws about driving with one eye occluded but it should work well for reading, studying etc.
Does this make sense to you?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer.
Dr., with all due respect I do not think we are on the right track. The question is clear but your response is off track.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

Asthenopia is the name of your issue.
No it is not, sorry.
Use of an eye patch is a good idea.
Are you saying that is not the name of what you have or that I am not addressing your question?
The blurryness is from iritus/inflamattion, not from fatigue. The processing of information is what I asked about.
Ok. I do not believe that your problem is due to the processing of the information in your brain but rather by the fact that one image is very blurry and being superimposed on a clear image.
A visit to an ophthalmologist should be able to better define what is going on if you are not comfortable trying to wear an eye patch and seeing if that helps.
I hope I am addressing your issue. It seems to me that your question was very straight forward and easy to understand.
OK Dr., if this is true..I do not believe that your problem is due to the processing of the information in your brain but rather by the fact that one image is very blurry and being superimposed on a clear image...., what processes the information my eye sees, the eye or the brain?
I'm not sure if you are still there. My screen shows that you have left the chat room.
The eye does some "pre-processing" but your brain does the vast majority of the work.
It is not, in my opinion, a problem with your brain but rather a problem with your binocular vision that is causing your symptoms.
Whew! At least we are on the same page now :)
Brain cannot process bad info from bad eye..
So. The simple solution to this complex problem is to try an eye patch
Like a pirate patch.....
Something seems to be wrong with the chat system. I show you entering and leaving the chat room and typing but nothing comes through.
Regardless of what the solution either of Us thinks may help...is there a name for this exact situation/condition?
Not in the eye but the problem of processing info correctly.
Not a good one that I know of....asthenopia is the general term used to describe eye strain, issues with reading etc.......it is the term that best fits what you are describing on your post.
Asthenopia covers issues with processing problems.........I guess I don't have the answer you are looking for; perhaps a consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist will give you the information you are seeking.
I believe Dr. James on this section of JustAnswer is a neuro-ophthalmologist. You could ask him if you don't want to be examined in person for this issue.
The chat system has frozen up on my side......
I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
