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 [...]

Where Is The Best Place To Buy Glasses Online?

If you're improving your eyesight, you already figured out that most optic shops overcharge massively for glasses. 500% or higher markups on lenses, perfectly normal.  Gouge-town, city limits. Not entirely surprising if you already realized what a scheme the whole basis of modern optometry and myopia treatment is.  So why go put more money in the pockets of those who caused your progressive myopia in the first place?  Unless you find a supportive optometrist, who will help you with your [...]

Active Focus: It Was Clear A Second Ago

Written By Despina Contributing Optometrist Could dry eyes be affecting your active focus? Does your clarity change each time you blink?

If you suspect you may have dry eyes, it could be affecting your progress as far as myopia reduction is concerned.

Pro Topic: The Eye Guru’s Take On Plus Lens Use

Too much Effort

Written By DespinaContributing OptometristSome days, I just can't be bothered to focus.Maybe I'm tired, hot (33 degrees, 95% humidity), or just plain lazy. I'm quite happy walking around in a slight haze on these days. And everything looks quite nice, I have to say. No mess (kids are back from uni for the summer), no dust, no sand on my floors. And, if you read the program, it's OK to have these days off.Eventually though, I come to my senses and [...]

Shhh! Don’t Tell Them How To Fix Their Eyes!

I'm not joking.Don't tell anybody how to fix their eyes.  Maybe don't even tell them that you're improving yours.  The maximum allowable unsolicited eyesight talk has to be one sentence, or less.  You don't want to be that guy going on and on about a thing you are passionate about, and everybody forced to listen could care less.  Don't be that guy.One sentence, max, that's it.  "Ah yea, I used to think nerd goggles treat an actual health condition, too."  Extra [...]
