Not ex­actly the most eye-open­ing ad­vice for mo­tion sick­ness

The China Post - - TV & COMICS -

DEAR AN­NIE: You printed a let­ter from “M. W.,” who doesn’t like to travel be­cause she suf­fers from mo­tion sick­ness.

When I lost the sight in one eye, my ophthalmologist said I’d no longer get air­sick or car­sick.

He said a NASA as­tro­naut dis­cov­ered that by closing one eye, the dizzi­ness from the ef­fects of be­ing weight­less went away.

He was right. I can now fly and look out the plane win­dow or read while rid­ing in a car and suf­fer no ill ef­fects.

I have told sev­eral peo­ple who suf­fer from car­sick­ness to close one eye or wear an eye patch, and they have re­ported back that it worked for them. Maybe this will help oth­ers.

Dear Ad­van­tage: Thanks for the in­ter­est­ing sug­ges­tion. We hadn’t heard of this be­fore, and we hope our read­ers who have this prob­lem will try your so­lu­tion.
