The Goal Post: No Glasses Eyesight (20/40 – 20/20 Range)2021-11-10T02:42:29+00:00

It Takes Time To Get Back To 20/20.

And as most beardly sages will tell you, the path is the goal.  Or something.  

In this subject matter it’s every diopter that matters, they’re all milestones that will give you a better vision experience than the previous, higher diopters.  -10 diopter myopia is nothing like -5 diopter myopia.  At -10 you can barely wear glasses, your field of vision is seriously compromised, everything is smaller and more distorted.  -5 looks like super high definition magic 8K reality, compared to -10.

And -4 is nothing like -2.  At -2 you almost don’t need glasses for close-up, and you’re likely to get clear flashes even without glasses.  And once you get to the last diopter, you can be without glasses in good outdoor lighting, and likely experience increasing amounts of great eyesight.

I also wrote several posts on the rate of improvement, and also did a quick and as-usual rambling video on the “how fast” question:

All that said, because newbies always ask this question (and who can blame them), here’s some updates from darling students who made it all the way to 20/20, or are just about there.  

Because yes of course, you can (and should) go all the way back to 20/20.  So enjoy some of the 20/20 gains reports here below.

20/40 To 20/20 Range Improvement Updates:

Vlad: -3 Diopters To 20/15 (!) Vision

Latest Shortsighted Podcast episode, now live. It's maybe the most telling one of all of them yet.  20/15 is not that common and once you watch / listen to it, you'll know why. You'll also know how to replicate Vlad's success yourself. Endmyopia striketh again. Jakey be slow, Jakey be of ill advisable humor.  But in the end, ole Jakey [...]

DMV Restriction Removed (Can Your Retail Optometrist Do This?)

Well 'ello there, darlin's. Ready for some 20/20 gains that lead all the way to being unsubscribed from retail optometry treatments?   All that and yet another reverberating juicy slap in the collective faces of retail optometry? To recap first and apetizer-ey, for the seven millionth snarky fun time:  Retail optometrists lie.  About pretty much everything, from why you have [...]

Vladimir: -2.00 Diopters To 20/20

Oh boy, I can imagine the comments already. "But Jake, that was barely two diopters.  From there to 20/20 that's not even impressive, brrrrrrro." But here, anyway: There are a lot more of these, some starting with much higher diopters. If it's just regular improvement reports, people aren't happy because "bro that's not 20/20 there's no point".  If it's massive [...]
