Jessi recently posts this question in the forum
I haven’t posted for awhile but I have been keeping up with pushing focus and active focus as well as religiously wearing the normalized and differential prescriptions. I’ve been doing the program for a year now and while I’ve noticed improvements in the vision I can achieve (measured on the snellen chart) with both prescriptions, my vision without glasses remains the same at 11cm/12cm. I’m starting to get a little disheartened. Can anyone shed light on why my vision with glasses is improving but my vision without is not?
I find it important to highlight not only the great, inspiring success stories here on the blog. We also have to talk about where the method can fall short.
First, of course, this is part of the reason for having the open forum.
I want you to see all sides of the rehabilitative approach, with all of its shortcomings and potential struggles. While I think it is very important to find motivation and inspiration through others via the forum, we have to look at the other side as well.
The whole thread is here.
What I like about Jessi’s post is her willingness to look for flaws. Instead of giving up, or finding fault somewhere outside of her control, she is putting the question out there. And since myopia is reversible in most cases, this is the correct approach. What is it, that is causing the lack of faster progress? Why is Jessi’s vision with glasses improving, but without glasses not?
I will post a follow-up soon, with some tips and suggestions, and a bit more digging into what may have been happening.
In the meantime, look through the past posts here and here, and see what you think may be going on.
Thanks to Jessi for bringing this dialog, it is important to look at high myopia cases, at different rates of improvement, and what may be off when things are not progressing the way we want them to.
Also feel free to share your own conclusions in the original thread.
