I have done that. Paralysis and nerve damage symptoms would be present even if one eye was covered but this is not the case. Individual eye test is able totrack and focus on targets at different speeds,distances, and within field of peripheral vision. It is only when both eyes are open that the eyes do not seem to focus together. I was referrred back to family dr. who is on vacation for a week.
