How Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (ONH) affects my ability to play video games

In my stream today, somebody asked a question that I thought might be interesting to share here as well.

“Does your condition make it difficult to play fast-paced games like Warframe?”

– WarLochNess

Yes. It. Friggin. Does.

I explain it more in-depth in the video, but here’s the tl;dr:

  1. My eyes take a long time to focus, so sometimes I mistake teammates for enemies.
  2. I get eyestrain easily due do Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, so I have to take frequent breaks or I get headaches.
  3. Timed Archwing missions are damn near impossible for me. Thanks for asking the question. WarLochNess!
