Put Away Your Wallet.  Improving your eyesight doesn’t have to cost a thing.  All you need is a modicum of intelligence, a bit of persistence, some curiosity, a little open-mindedness, and get ready to spend some time investigating, learning, and trying things out.  

On this page, some of the most recent first-hand improvement accounts from student readers, who used just the blog (not the famed and elusive BackTo20/20 program).  Read, learn, find your own inspiration.

Mina: No More Vertigo Attacks! So Happy

Mina made my day today, with an awesome, brilliant e-mail.   Mina who was suffering from increasing eye strain and vertigo attacks, and now ... well, read this one for yourself: Hi Jake! Yes I have been enjoying the blog and have been doing very well with it.    When I first started reading the Endmyopia blog in September of 2016, I had been suffering from increasing eyestrain and frequent vertigo attacks that I finally attributed to my glasses and contacts (for many months, I [...]

Overnight High Myopia Shock: 5 Year Old Goes From 20/20 To -5.00D!

Imagine, you have a young boy.  Everything is all fine and great, boys will be boys.  Until one day, that is.  One day which is today when he comes running up to you and says, all scared sounding and confused:  Daddy, I can't see!   Yikes!  You're freaking out, naturally.  Freaking out and taking the little one to the optometrist as fast as you can.   And this is where it all starts. Sit back and grab your favorite pipe [...]

Alisa: 0.75 Diopters Improvement (Just Over The Summer!)

People ask what happened to the e-mails.  Do you still get e-mails, VanderJakenhausen? Yes. Gainsville. A little tweaking there seems apropos, with the close-up habits. See how simple it is to diagnose where you're going off course?  Your eyesight shouldn't get worse with more close-up.  Improvement may slow, sure.  But you shouldn't actually be sliding back up to higher diopters.  If you are, some tweak action is in order. Housekeeping:  December is coming up, which means dealing with accountants and [...]

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 [...]

Kim’s Optometrist Confirms Improved Vision (but Kim made some mistakes …)

Kim's eyesight improved to such a degree that even an optometrist confirms it's real.   That's a bigger deal than you might think. Remember that most optometrists test you in worst case scenario settings.  Dark room, artificially lit eye chart, not telling you how much correction they're adding, asking you, sneakily, whether additional diopters make the vision clearer or not. You could literally improve your eyesight but almost a diopter and it might not show up at all in those particular testing [...]

Somebody Has To Be The Awesomest

I was going to make the title more something like, "an ode to the wise and immortal eye guru". Restraint, kittehs.  A virtue, they tell us. The way I deal with all the improvement reports and stories and e-mails and comments, is to make screenshots, save them in a folder.  Then when it's time to do blog posts, open that folder, grab one of the stories, put it up here in the blog for you. And, backlog.  The folder is always rather [...]
