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.

Reader Mailbag: -4.25 Diopters Eliminated, Optometrist Says “Myopia Reduction Possible”

Let's cover a few reader e-mails of great vision improvements (and one Facebook post) today.   As usual we get quite a few of these e-mails.  I try to post as many as I can, although the best thing is to be a member of our darling Facebook group where you'll get a lot more improvement reports, diopter discussions, and interesting Q&A threads. First one up, DeAnn's e-mail: 45 years of glasses! Nice part, DeAnn figured most of it out all on [...]

Almost There! First Full Diopter Reduction

Let's look at another quick e-mail and improvement report.   Michael writes: Quick and to the point. He includes a chart of his progress. Note that this one shows diopter reduction, though without the usual 0.25 increments.  While often we're looking at centimeter charts where improvement equals more centimeters, in this case we're looking at diopters going down as myopia reduces. Logs.  Highly recommend! That's almost a diopter for each eye. Michael also posts in the Facebook group, including this thread [...]

Chelsee: Optometrist & Autorefractor Confirm -2.5 D

Let's look at a nice, solid vision improvement update from Chelsee. Before we get there, note that while I mention the "optometrist confirmed" and "autorefractor results", I don't want to give that old timey myopia exam charade a whole lot of power or meaning.  The optometrist confirming improvements isn't the ultimate victory - look at that checkbox as one more way to look at your 20/20 gains.  Something even the interestingly rigged eye exam can't deny.   The real measurement is what you [...]

Angie’s Must-Watch Eyesight Update (YouTube)

Vision improvement is a fringey topic. The sort of Internet health thing littered with all the unicorn pony farming and feeding on your hope and trust to sell you magic herb vitamins and secret-handshake eye exercises.   Which, some people live for that stuff.  Vague symptoms and magic weed cures.   As much fun as that might be, our goal here is to get you all the 20/20 gains.  I don't waste your time on the esoteric nuances of the self help hamster wheel and [...]

14 Year Old Reduces Myopia By 0.75 D (Optometrist Confirmed)

An update today from your favorite irresponsible e-mail chaperone.   Yes, a Jake's been a bit lagging in posting improvement reports.  Let's fix that today with a particularly inspiring one.  As you read this one, think no help or support from the parents, no guidance from any optometrist, no BackTo20/20 membership.  Just the blog, determination, and the ability to put the various two's and two's together.   Here's Anne awesome e-mail: Hats off. Somebody is going to have no trouble finding [...]
