This particular story is interesting for two reasons:

1.  It shows a case where the individual managed to reverse a notable degree of myopia in a short period of time. 

2.  You don’t necessarily need my method specifically, but just the core principles, to improve your eyesight.

Here is Liam’s story:

I joined the web program in July this year after already getting some small improvements on my own.

I had some good habits in placed mainly because of all the free content on this site + sites like gettingstronger.org and I wanted to see if the web program could accelerate my progress, plus fill in gaps in my knowledge.

I had learned about and tried the Bates method two years ago but that gave me zero improvements. It had me walking around with no glasses when I needed them. Also when your optician tells you flatout that it is impossible to improve your eyesight it’s hard to believe otherwise. If I wasn’t so stubborn I would have given up a while ago.

Anyway, in July 2012 I was wearing glasses with this prescription:

Left: -5.25, 0.50 CYL
Right: -5.00

26th January 2013 I had a free eye test at the opticians:

Left: -4.50
RIght: -4.75

15th June 2013 I did a snellen test on my own (this is before I started the web program):

With -2.50 glasses I could read the 13ft line from 10 ft away, indoors. (Sorry about the awkwardness of this result, knowing what I know now I could have been more thorough)

Today I can see the 20/40 line consistently outdoors with no glasses, and if I let it clear I can usually read the 20/20 line too.

My cm readings are hard to pinpoint. They vary from 65cm to 90cm. On good days when I am extra relaxed I can push it over 100cm. I do what Alex recommends in #61.

The only glasses I wear now are a +2 for close-up work.

If I had found out about this site and joined the web program right from the beginning I think my improvements would have been even quicker. But I am really grateful for even coming across this site and the vision improvement community. I think it’s a real shame that most people who wear glasses don’t know it’s possible to improve their eyesight.

Here is the full thread, in the forum:  https://endmyopia.org/myopia-forums/topic/from-5-25-l-and-5-00-r-to-2040/

I like to point this out frequently, as it is important:  You don’t actually need to pay for my Vision Improvement Courses.  All they do, is put the key aspects of reducing myopia in a simple step-by-step format.  

There is also this free option to work on improving your eyesight.

For more client experiences see the progress reports category.

Enjoy!
