Video.   If you’re here on purpose, looking for video of the eye guru himself, then all we can say … you did this to yourself.

Highly experimental, completely disorganized, confusingly edited video, by Jake.  That’s what you’ll find here.  While it may be less educational than the written word you’re hopefully browsing while visiting with us, some of the video may aide in your quest to improve your eyesight.  Just don’t say we didn’t warn you about the quality of the various productions.

Video: Angie Measures Centimeter

Video time! This one it's not Jake video, but rather Angie posting in our darling Facebook group on how she does her centimeter measurement. I love these videos.  Unstaged, real, sharing individual approaches. You can find it here (part of Angie's thread with her improvement update so far). If you like this video, consider just how easy it is to make these.  Grab your smartphone, both Facebook and Youtube have apps that let you record and upload directly without any need for [...]

PRO TOPIC: High Myopia First Differential (focal plane challenges)

High myopia can be tricky to start working on, especially if you are starting out with a complex correction scenario. Astigmatism, likely even different diopter value and different degree values for both eyes, plus the high spherical correction, plus diopter ratio in left vs. right eye - it's a delicate knot that you want to start to untangle with some care and planning. On this subject, here's a post from Marina in the support forum: This, not an entirely unlikely initial [...]

Step Into My Time Machine

First rule of endmyopia club, let's have fun with all the things. Yesterday, the drama with Bates fans in the Facebook group.  That's fine, let's get all wound up on occasion.  Then Jake says, enough with the Bates talk.  But even then, several people still have to have the last word.  If you like to read into things, you might almost think they're heckling the poor old frail eye guru on his little mountain hideout. "Think about it Jake, you are [...]

Let’s Stop Calling Glasses “Prescriptions”

The title, pretty much says it all. You probably already know that glasses were invented sometime in the 16th century (some say, much earlier).  They were not invented by doctors, not by medical science, not by optometry or ophthalmology.  It's an important point, that medical professionals today would probably rather not have you contemplate a whole lot. Glasses were appropriated, many centuries later, by the lens manufacturing industry and by modern optometry as the "medical treatment" you're familiar with today. [...]

Last Video

So, here's a great story.  Dennis started with endmyopia 3 months ago and is already down from -6.00 diopters to -5.00 diopters, a whole full diopter of 20/20 gains.   It's an impressive piece of work!  Fortunately Dennis breaks it down a bit too, in a detailed e-mail. But I'm not posting it here. If you want to read how he got that first diopter lower, stop over in the FB group.  Dennis is also a member there, and he may [...]
