Correct Your Astigmatism2017-05-03T05:54:26+00:00

Astigmatism.  The correction that is exceedingly rare in actual necessity.  Yes, you probably didn’t actually have astigmatism the first time they gave you glasses with correction for it.  Surprised?  Incredulous?  Not sure what to think?

Browse this section for science about astigmatism, how-to guides, and a whole lot of students who successfully reversed their lens-induced astigmatism.  Odds are you won’t need this complex focal plane correction for long!

Child Astigmatism – ‘Cured’?

Does your child have ... *gasp*, astigmatism? Let me give you the sagely holy eye guru analysis, right through this here computer screen.  Give it just a moment for the mystical guru powers to reach through your router, through your computer, through your screen.   Wait for it. Waaaiiiit for it. NO YOUR CHILD DOESN'T HAVE ASTIGMATISM. Wow.  That was just amazing, wasn't it? Of course astigmatism exists.  It's just that astigmatism is so exceedingly rare that you're more likely [...]

Aza’s Optometrist Confirms: 1.50 Diopter Astigmatism Reduction

Astigmatism reduced dramatically.  Myopia reduced as well.  And all of it, optometrist confirmed. Yes, it's that time again.  Time to strut the stuff.  Show off the gains.  Preen prodigiously on behalf of darling readers and practice-ers of  the guru's methods for all the 20/20 gains. We'll keep this one short and partially rant-free.  Note below Aza's percentage spherical reduction is actually quite excellent, as well as a lot less astigmatism.  That latter one is nice since it'll be much easier [...]

Kristen A: Optometrist Confirms 1.5 Diopter Reduction

Here's a great improvement report for you, from our darling Facebook group. You might like this one since it's a) optometrist confirmed, b) has diopter equalization (left and right eye same diopters), c) includes more than a full diopter of reduction, and d) even has reduced astigmatism.  All this in a span of a very short 7 months. Not bad at all for seven months start, and an "incurable genetic condition". Here's the full post: Win on every front. Myopia [...]

(Q&A) High Astigmatism, Low Myopia – Sph. To Cyl. Ratio Control

This Q&A, applicable if you have spherical correction at or below cylinder correction (high cyl to spherical ratio). A repost here from two BackTo20/20 support forum threads.  While I only provide case specific support in the forum, you might be able to come to your own relevant conclusions based on reviewing these scenarios.   Not sure if my mesurments are very accurate. Having a hard time telling where the actual blur starts. Think this is the astigmatism. For example this [...]

DIY TOOLS: How To Measure Your Astigmatism Diopters

Want to learn how to measure astigmatism diopters?  Then you're in the right place.  Pull up your comfy chair, this one is going to take a minute to learn all about!  (and it's rather ingenious, too) Prerequisite:  Understand centimeter measurement. Measuring your astigmatism does require a bit of preparation.  There are two (fundamentally very similar) ways to do it (without a test lens kit), both requiring a measuring tape, a piece of paper, and a tiny bit of math. First [...]

Jaanus’ Optometrist: “Astigmatism Correction Is For Rare, Serious Cases”

Astigmatism correction.   Also heads up, huge rant post. If you know your darling eye guru at all by now, you know that he easily gets triggered.  Triggered by various words, including 'eye exercises', 'eye yoga', 'palming' (pretend-Bates Internet thing, don't ask), 'genetic myopia', and of course, astigmatism. You know who's got astigmatism?   People.  People, not including you.  At least if you rule out monkey-lens-seller induced astigmatism, the kind you didn't used to have before you started wearing glasses. [...]
