“Everybody thought I was crazy.”

Shared reality.

That’s us believing the same things to be true.  It is important to social cohesion and a common understanding of the world we can all relate to, than objective reality.  So, what may objectively be true is less important for us as humans, social creatures, than that we share a belief in the same things – right or wrong.

Now one would argue that we are probably better off sharing objective reality, at least when such things can reliably be determined.  But that’s not for your favorite tiny-brained pretend eye guru to judge.

The important thing here is that when you say “my eyes are fine, optometrists tell lies they studied in school to keep our eyes dependent on their billion dollar product”, people will think you’ve lost it.  Because of course, retail optometry is well established, respected, default accepted reality of what everybody sees.  People need glasses, it is what it is.  

In fact over the years, I’ve wondered on more than a few occasions if I just fell into some conspiracy theorist rabbit hole and truly just imagine that my eyes are fine.  That we started some collective hypnosis somehow.  A group of people who think they can fix their eyes.  Because realistically, we are by far the largest destination of its kind anywhere online, discussing eyesight.

And if you know me like I know me, there is a zero percent chance that I’d have come up with, discovered, or collected something, anything, that some smart and open mined ophthalmologist wouldn’t have.  I’m not a doctor, or scientist, or a particularly smart guy.  

But here we are.  Because of you (and a few hundred thousand others) who somehow stumbled on this and tried the eyesight things and shared the eyesight things and talked about the eyesight things … we have endmyopia.  

It’s not part of shared reality for most people.  There is a lot more objective reality in endmyopia though, discussing the science, biology, clinical studies, as well as personal experiences and improvement reports (including many optometrist confirmed ones no less).   Over time and with more people taking on the effort to understand objective reality about myopia, it’ll be more likely that you won’t be looked at as ‘crazy’ for understanding that myopia isn’t an illness, that you can improve your vision.

Go make some 20/20 gains.
