Not exactly the most eye-opening advice for motion sickness
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.
