Todd: Getting First Normalized Glasses at -2.25

I'm a big fan of structured approaches. Call me lazy (or maybe just efficient).  Somebody else already figured it out, great.  Introduce me to that guy.  Give me the cliff notes.  Let's get straight to the key bits, I don't get a huge sense of accomplishment taking the long way if there's no need for it. Fine.  Maybe I am just lazy. Here's somebody who is definitely not lazy though, and also demonstrates how one might benefit from a finely tuned structured [...]

Rachel’s Update: Optometrist Excited!

Have you ever heard of an optometrist getting excited about measuring clients improving eyesight?   It's a rare thing, for sure.  Read on! I had planned to get through some of the usual backlog of improvement stories today, get some motivating and great first hand accounts posted here for you. It's not to be though, at least for today.  Because something else came along. Also an improvement story of course (as most are), but this one with a particularly heart [...]

Optometrist Improves: No Longer a High Myope!

Written By Despina Contributing Optometrist This week has been quite momentous for me. A major milestone. I am no longer a "High Myope".  In March this year, I started out with a contact lens prescription of R -5.00, L -5.50. That's about -5.50 and -6.00 in a spectacle prescription, plus a bit of astigmatism. Definately high myopia, from the age of about 12. Two days ago, I am thrilled to report, after a good 20 minutes of no prescription on, [...]

Ian’s -1.50 D Progress: “Dream Of Being Glasses Free By Summer”

What's it like when you can just about see the no-glasses light at the end of the tunnel? Ian is getting close: By this time next year, Ian's going to be all ... "glasses, what glasses". Interesting, how things have evolved. First, back in the day, nobody cared (or knew of, let's be honest) about @endmyopia.  Then word got around slowly, and we were getting a lot of haters.  If you've been around long enough, you remember the various drama moments with [...]

Val’s Latest Progress Report: -8.00 Now Reduced To -6.25

Let's check in on Val's latest progress report in the support forum, and some interesting details: It’s been a while, but I just made another reduction. Actually, in late August I went down to -6.5 (half diopter drop), and have been there through sept, oct, and half of november. This morning, I decided it was time for a quarter diopter drop. I probably picked a bad day (gray rainy), but I was happy with how well I could see. I also [...]

Adam Compares Bates & Endmyopia: A Must-Read For Curious Myopes

You know I get cranky about various vision improvement methods.  Cranky. Especially if you're part of our Facebook group and witness the reactions when people talk about eye vitamins and acupuncture and worst of all, eye exercises. But why do I get so annoyed?  Because, I'll tell you why.   We'll use Adam as a real life case, as he is currently participating in BackTo20/20.  Adam tried all sorts of vision improvement for 13 years prior (without much lasting success) before [...]
