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. 

Felix: -9.00 High Myopia To 20/40 WITHOUT GLASSES

Hello darlings! Your favorite eye guru has been increasingly less completely on point of keep track of 20/20 gains updates posted by our kitteh gang.   Every time I say there are more updates than I can post here, and every month it seems like the last time I said it was much fewer in comparison to the current moment.  More and more and moar gains updates are coming in, as the site and project continue to get more participants.

Guixiao: 8 Year Old Son’s Myopia REVERSED

Today, just a quick one.  No epic rants, no momentous digressions. This one is for you if you have kids.  If you have kids and you'd rather not have them become socially awkward, withdrawn, afraid of sports and physical activities because they're now stuck with glasses.   Myopia is a refractive state, nothing more.  And the eye is designed to change refractive states based on environmental input.  Don't buy into the "genetic illness" propaganda talk. Her's Guixiao's first hand report: [...]

Kasper: Reversed My Low Myopia

There's a category for whining and crying in a cantankerous old eye guru's e-mail inbox, in particular about low myopia. Oh Jake, I'm not making gains.  Oh Jake, this isn't working.  Oh Jake, plzz. Number one problem of course, that I made a category for this sort of crybaby attitude for my e-mail admin to file e-mails in.  So even if I just skim-and-delete through that folder, it's still enough to make the imaginary guru beard bristle at the helpless [...]

Long Term Uncorrected Low Myopia Blur Adaptation

Pro topic. You may have low myopia (below 2 diopters) and simply never started wearing glasses.  While in principle this is a smart move towards protecting your distance vision from lens-induced myopia, it doesn't alone address your existing myopia degree. It also creates an issue of habituated blur, something you'll have to address before being able to make meaningful progress in eliminating the low degree myopia. A question on this topic from the BackTo20/20 support forum: Smart self assessment. Here's [...]

Kavish’ Optometrist Report: 20/20 By Dec 2018?

The guru time clock is ticking fast, my darling kittehs. Jakey must make it to the embassy today,  and the cranky Chinese Hong Kong wizard watch maker, and the bank, and deal with stuffy suits on two conference calls, and then also look for particularly dumb ideas in a three mile long spreadsheet.  That's before the afternoon list of to do things. And the endmyopia-work-time clock says 11 minutes remaining. So that's 11 minutes to post at least one improvement [...]
