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 *(site content guide).  

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.

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 [...]

Dmitriy’s Progress Update: -2.5 Now Down To -0.75 (at 20/15)

Low myopia progress, always a tricky beast.   We talk about it quite a bit, in articles here, here, here, and here and even here.  If you dig in the free guides, you'll find lots of help to get you sorted on improving low myopia. Like Dmitriy: You'll never fail at this, if you keep at it. Here's the FB thread.  Stick with it.  Much easier if you started with higher myopia and have that reference point and confidence, but equally [...]

Melissa: 20/30 To 20/13 In A Few Months … Woohoo!

Melissa posts over in our darling Facebook group: Nice work, Melissa. Knowledge is power, dear kittehs. If you don't want to be an invalid for life, addled with glasses today, decimated by glaucoma, lattice degeneration, and retinal detachment later, then you need the knowledges about the myopia truths.  Pay now or pay later ... up to you, like they say in these parts.   It'll be much more expensive later. Today it's just a visit to your favorite darling eye [...]
