Helmut: 74 Years Old, Reduced From -5.00 To -2.50

Welcome back, darlings! Back to Gainsville where separation of church and state isn't even a thing.  It's a state of ongoing guruness, appreciated by the many faithfully fateful visitors looking to bring home some gains - and throw some diopters in the town square's fountain. Jake, what are you smaoking, you're thinking. Forget Gainsville.  Here is Helmut's progress report: Age much like myopia, just a number. The rest here goes without saying.  Myopia is a negative refractive state, dutifully and [...]

Melissa: 18 Months Progress Report

Continuing the streak of progress reports, today is Melissa's turn. This one is in centimeters which of course you can also directly convert into their diopter equivalent.  You'll note that I often recommend that you measure at least three dimensions, including close-up via centimeters, as well as eye chart, and a real outdoor distance landmark. Here's Melissa's progress update: We get spoiled with all of these updates. The main piece of excitement for Melissa here is that her eyes equalized, showing [...]

Karen: 1 Diopter Of Natural Focal Plane Gains!

Getting back to the roots here, posting more of the daily incoming improvement reports. Karen is on track with initial improvements, which can be as high as a full diopter in the first ninety days in some cases.  Of course from there things settle into a more measured pace, but the initial boost is a great place to start! That's 25% less diopters! This is where you want to be. Imagine being able to lose (or gain) 25% of your [...]

D.B.: -3.50 To -2.50 Progress Report

Today, a nice e-mail progress report from Dan. As you read, note his progress rate which is right around the figures most eye gurus suggest.  Handy also his access to online shopping options, circumventing the massive markups and often condescending attitudes of local chain store outlets. Patience and reading the blog before getting started with diopter changes is key to success.  Unless you are doing the structured BackTo2/20 approach, take the time to learn the basics and read plenty of [...]

Michal: Ready To Reduce Normalized Glasses?

Today, an interesting progress update in our darling Facebook group. This one goes a long way to make the point about when to reduce your diopters.  A divine and sacrilegious eye guru has been heard saying that 3-4 months is a good time frame to reduce, and generally by just 0.25 diopters.   But that's just an average number. Rather than strictly going by numbers, you want to get to know your own eyes.  Eyes are part of the whole [...]

Troy’s IT Job & The 20/20 Gains

The nay sayers are right.  Jakey is a terrible eye guru. We're so many improvement reports behind right now, it's pretty much official at this point:  we'll never ever get caught up trying to post all of the great 20/20 gains reports here. Also, hey.  How many optometrists have you ever heard saying anything like that?  Too many improvement reports to keep up with?  Fortunately these guys are still the sanctioned stewards of our collective vision quality.  Lobbying is awesome.  Let's [...]
