We need to do more video, kittehs.

Just so you can see an eye guru’s very self satisfied, smirkey, told-ya-so face.  

Which is pretty much the standard face these days.

Important note:  If you want to get started improving your own eyesight, I offer a number of courses, including options for one-on-one support with me personally.  Check out the courses page for what’s currently available to help your eyeballs.

Yes, myopia is a bullshit, made-up “illness” just to sell you a nice, quick fix for a bunch of money.  It’s easy recurring revenue, and both the dealers and the users are happy.  It’s a win-win all around, as long as you’re either some lens-sales monkey or a screen addict who doesn’t want to hear about facing their addiction.

Only issue here being that those of us who’d actually like to see the world clearly, get caught in the middle.

And that’s where the most pontificatingly bearded guru comes in.  At some point the sage wisdom has to come around, tell us what’s up.  I wish I hadn’t spent my entire youth looking like a dork, having limited peripheral vision, disrupted cognition, and consequently looking awkward, not enjoying sports, being bullied by non-myopes in school.

Would have been nice at that point to have an eye guru.  But hey, better late than never. 

Here’s Bella, not late and better, making all the 20/20 gains:

What what.

Yes, that’s mildly unusual.  

A beard may grumble ciliary spasm and that Bella pretty soon may just not need glasses at all.  Ask her next year when she’ll be all like “what glasses you talking about, Holmes”.  

Or at least very, very close to it.

And while we’re at it, blog entry screen already open, let’s pop up another one.  



Of course optometrists know.

Not every lens seller is an idiot.  If you see every single person you sell a -1 come back needing a -2 a year later, eventually even a half wit might go, hey that seems kinda like, I don’t know, correlated.

Also endmyopia has anywhere from half a million to three quarters of a million readers.

Not all of those regular, many just popping in from search terms or random site referrals or social media posts.  But still, that’s not nothing-traffic.  People are finding out, and the ones who don’t want to squint at life like forever-nerds may pull up Google Scholar and see what’s actually going on in optometry clinical science (as opposed to retail lens-sales monkeys).

One last one, if you don’t mind.


Decent gains.

Yes, not everybody goes from -4 to 20/30 in a few months.  That, definitely an outlier.

That’s all for today.  

Takeaway, if you have myopia, it’s because you spent too much time staring at screens, and accepting a quick fix.  Your only sickness is living in a society where your brain gets hijacked by endless media consumption opportunities, and a so-called (retail) medical establishment that’s exactly 100% useless when it comes to understanding or managing myopia.
