Correct Your Astigmatism2018-12-02T04:29:26+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!

Reducing Diopters, This Whole Thing, Is FOR WEIRDOS

Darling fellow endmyopia kittehz. Welcome back to another post, and another round of all the 20/20 gains.  Of which as you probably know by now, there are many.   But let's start this one out with something that bugs your favorite holy sage eyeguru, and I don't know what to do about it. Every so often I get an e-mail like this one: *sigh* Now, that's a well-intentioned message. The problem with it is, that you may well figure that [...]

From 20/50 To 20/20, Angry Optometrist, & More

Dearest darling kittehz. It's time for the weekly progress reports update, which is turning more into a sometimes-eventually progress reports udate. I need to hire somebody to post these.  There's really no way otherwise that they're getting done on a regular enough basis.  We get so, SO many progress reports (I love them all, please do keep them coming) and I'm inundated by an endless list of pesky other tasks to do for endmyopia. Hey Jake, why haven't you uploaded [...]

Shipley: -3.75 Down To -1.75 (and HUGE astigmatism reduction)

Let's have another gains update today. GAINNNNNNNZ. This one in particular, since it includes a huge drop in cylinder, which really makes it easier to reduce your lens dependence.  It's one thing to take off glasses and just have a closer blur horizon, but a whole different to take off the glasses and get a bunch of directional blur (double vision, ghosting). Here we go, Shipley's update: Way to go. Note of course, as always:  Don't monkey with diopters, unless [...]

Amanda: -8.00 & -2.25 Cyl (!) Reduced To -5.75 & NO Astigmatism

Is astigmatism real, Jakey?  Can I reverse my astigmatism, Jake?  Can I?  Can I, though???????? This, a question that's one of the many recurring themes in an old guru's inbox.  Nevermind that there's an entire separate category here just on astigmatism or the countless improvement reports discussing astigmatism reversal. Because honestly, reading.  What a bore. A beard shrugged. None of this applies to you because you're fully old school, reading written words and whatnot.  You even put up with all [...]

Teh Astigmatizms: Retail Optometry Bets That You’re Retarded

And if they're right, then you'll give them money.  What an awesome business! Yes, astigmatism is (largely) a thing created by retail optometry.  If you're not new here and already understand basic vision biology, then this may come as no surprise.  Getting "your eyes checked" is the most basic sales ploy of all sales ploys.  You could literally have 20/15 vision without glasses, and you'll STILL be sold something: The f*ckwittery of retail optometry truly knows no bounds. It's almost [...]
