Do This: The Ciliary Spasm Test

Step numero uno to improving your eyesight is ... controlling your close-up strain. Why? Because close-up strain (or more accurately the underlying focusing muscle spasm) is what got you into the whole myopia problem in the first place.  You want to address causality of any problem first, make sure the hole in the boat is plugged before you start bailing out water.   Right?  You can remove as much water as you want, but if the hole is still there [...]

A Complicated Differential Reduction Scenario (Pro Topic)

Pro topic.  Don't go monkeying around with diopters until you really know what you're doing.  Messing around with diopter ratio, making focal plane changes, all creates a series of interactions with your visual cortex.  If you don't know what you're doing you might at minimum cause unnecessary discomfort - or more negatively, impact your opportunities for future progress. Quick post today, with just part of a BackTo20/20 forum thread.   This one highlights how changes (improvements) in your vision that [...]

Q&A: Sniper Stare, Medium Distance Focal Plane, & More

Q&A for those with low myopia and advanced level endmyopia students. There's a brilliant thread in the support forum right now (many brilliant threads, but this one really gets me). If you're in BackTo20/20, or even if you're going DIY with just the blog, you might love this one, too.  Todd has been keeping his progress all in one thread, reducing astigmatism, working on equalizing, and running through an interesting scenario of travel and home-habits time.   He's right at [...]

Strain-Stimulus Equilibrium: No Gains, Plateau Talk

Plateaus.  A dreaded word, of no more 20/20 gains. Here's the thing, the progression that you're likely to experience.  You start out with endmyopia, accepting the bearded sage's wisdom as your only true and divine eye-gospel.  You find gains-ful salvation from the lens sellers and find yourself needing less and less of their artificial diopter eye poison.   You're making righteous gains, just like the ones you keep reading about in all the improvement reports.  Your vision improves, you're feeling [...]

PRO TOPIC: Plateau Problems!

Were you making great 20/20 gains in the beginning, but are now stuck?  No matter what, all the things that worked before now are getting you no more gains? Plateaus.  This post, for you. The basics of stimulus based vision improvement are simple.   All you have to know about is 1) strain management and 2) productive stimulus.  As with anything human biology though, things always get a bit more tricky once you really get into the 'biohacking' past the [...]

Kim’s -7.00 Reduced To -3.00 (In 18 Months): Amazed By Habit Effectiveness

How do you get from a -4.00 diopter correction down to -3.00 without even thinking about it?  Is that wishful thinking, or did Kim just do exactly that?   You keep hearing me saying this:  Habits kitteh, are key to all the 20/20 gains. Not eye exercises.  Forget about exercises.  Life gets in the way.  You've got things to do.  Sure maybe you're the super motivated type and you can do an hour a day eye exercise regimen for the next [...]
