Low Myopia Diopters: Do You Need Close-Up Glasses?
It’s been a while since we’ve gotten into Q&A and diopter how-to posts. I’m working on doing more in video format since it seems that’s the way we’re headed with online communicating in general. Also […]
It’s been a while since we’ve gotten into Q&A and diopter how-to posts.
I’m working on doing more in video format since it seems that’s the way we’re headed with online communicating in general. Also I like to torture you with my homeless-man face.
So the question here is this:
You have low myopia, in the -1.50 diopter or lower-ish range. You may have some amount of spherical diopter ratio and maybe some astigmatism, too. Given this scenario, do you need differentials (close-up glasses) or is it better to just skip them?
A profoundly inspirational and charismatically guru-esque guru sheds some sagely divine light on this question:
Literally just back from three weeks in total off-grid jungle.
As always, it boils down to a bit of a case-by-case scenario.
Reducing diopter dependence is the name of the game. Do it while having a plan, knowing why and what you’re doing, be patient and keep track of progress, and you’ll find your way back to 20/20.
Keep making all thems 20/20 gains!
P.S.: Your eyes aren't broken.
It's your lens use and habits that keep making your eyes worse. And the massive hundred billion dollar optics industry loves it. They sell you ever increasing diopter glasses at a huge profit, and tell you stories of a mysterious genetic myopia illness.
It's quite possibly all nonsense. Your eyes might be perfectly healthy.
