PRO TOPIC: Normalized Or Differentials Indoors?

Here's a common question, about the use of corrective lenses while indoors. You have your normalized for distance vision, often emphasized for outdoor use.  And you have your differential glasses, for sustained single point focus close-up use.  This invites the question what you might do with all the in between distances? Short answer: Whenever you're not on the computer (or your otherwise primary close-up distance), use normalized. No need to adjust for every single distance, two focal planes are just [...]

Outdoor 20/20 Gains!

"But Jake, can't I just wear plus lenses and spend every waking moment in front of my computer?" You know, endmyopia is actually all a big ploy. Yes, just like the haters say.  A trick!  You learn all these things about optics and vision biology and how to control strain and how to get positive stimulus. And then, when you're too deep into it to want to turn back, then you realize the dirty secret:  Ultimately to really get back [...]

Pro Topic: Low Myopia & High Astigmatism (Video)

The question of low myopia and high astigmatism has come up multiple times in the BackTo20/20 support forum, this week. Low myopia, as in 1-2 diopters. High astigmatism, as in at least 2 diopters, likely even close to 3. Which to deal with first, spherical or cylinder, is always a question to answer for yourself before starting down the road of addressing your diopter needs.  One focal plane at a time, as uncle Jake likes to say. Best case scenario [...]

Glasses vs. Contact Lenses: The Correct Focal Plane

Are your contact lenses and glasses the same exact (relative) correction?  They better be! Focal planes are the key to all things myopia.  Your eye being a dynamic system, constantly adjusting to seek ideal eyesight, uses focal plane feedback to calibrate itself.  This aspect of our biology is elegant and so complex that we barely begin to scratch the surface on how it works.   And yet ... we go monkey around with artificial focal plane changes, like it's no [...]

Is Myopia Genetic? (Video)

"Sorry, dahhhling.  Your myopia, it's genetic." Here's the bottom line, before we fully get into this topic.  If a 'doctor' says those words to you, then he or she is an idiot. You're thinking, Jake.  That's a bit harsh. But it's true.  For you or me not to know how genetics work is excusable.  And actually if you consider a doctor to be an individual who collects information from you about a series of symptoms and then sells you some [...]

Bates Method: Getting In The Way Of Real Solutions (Video)

Quick YouTube story telling time, today. In this one I attempt to explain the harmful nature of the otherwise benignly silly concept of eye exercises. For most health related topics, there's the symptom managed, mainstream, quick-fix, pill popping side.  And then there's the other side, a causality addressing, solution seeking, "healing" approach to the problem.  Both of them are generally known to people who do any real amount of research. Take dentistry.  Yea, you can eat candy and get cavities [...]
