Pro Topic: One Eye Improves Quickly, The Other Does Not (Why?)

Another ‘How To Get Past A Plateau’ Post

Been wearing the same normalized glasses forever, getting no more 20/20 gains?  Well darling ... you're most likely hanging out on a plateau. Let's discuss.

Outdoor 20/20 Gains!

"But Jake, can't I just wear plus lenses and spend every waking moment in front of my computer?" You know, endmyopia is actually all a big ploy. Yes, just like the haters say.  A trick!  You learn all these things about optics and vision biology and how to control strain and how to get positive stimulus. And then, when you're too deep into it to want to turn back, then you realize the dirty secret:  Ultimately to really get back [...]
