Reversing Low Myopia:  Your eye is a stimulus response system.  The degree of myopia is largely irrelevant to your ability to reverse it – in other words, you can always reverse both pseudo- and lens-induced myopia.  

The devil though, is in the details.  It may seem more challenging to reverse that last (or only) diopter.  The reason for that though is largely because it’s a) a bit trickier to get the right sort of stimulus and b) it’s harder to quantify a 20% improvement (for example) when you’re just dealing with low myopia to begin with.  Read through this section for ideas, student feedback, and how-to guides for the low myope. 

Isak Reverses (-0.75 D) Low Myopia | Shortsighted Podcast

Welcome back, dahhlings! Hopefully you're reading this while we're in these interesting times of the pre-impending global apocalypse (or when we could still say this before it was actually true - just kidding, hopefully). Stop it Jake, you're thinking.  I'm quarantined, my butt is itchy, and this is not the time for weaksauce jokes. Fine, no zombie apocalypse jokes. We do have a podcast now, so if you're shut in and bored, but also don't want to stare at screens [...]

Is Your Phone Killing Your Vision Improvement?

As you may know, your favorite old timey eye guru, uncle VanderJakenhausen Le Third, lives in an off-grid jungle. You know where my phone is right now? Right.  I don't either.  Somewhere in the house.  Maybe near the charger.  I do use it to tether to tenuous 3G Internet to make you these posts and videos, so it's definitely on and definitely probably somewhere.   Where it's for sure not though, is in my pocket. It's nearly never in my [...]

Joonas: From -2.00 D To 20/15 Without Glasses

No rants today, darlings. No rants, and no rambles.  Just a quick update that I couldn't possibly pass on posting right now for you.  Low myopia back to 20/20 is a tricky one.  Though if you follow the correct approach, you will absolutely get there.   In fact, many participants experience a very similar progression. Here's Joonas progress, in his own words: This is how it's done. A big thanks to Joonas for paying it forward, sharing his improvement report [...]

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 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 [...]
