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.
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:
Let's try again today the new tradition of weekly-ish updates of darling kitteh improvement reports. First up, Eva: What can I say ... This isn't the first or only time I've heard of this. It seems to be getting more frequent as of late, which has to make one wonder. Is it just some synchronicity or magic of the [...]
Seems more than a week has gone by, and it's time again for some of the 20/20 gains updates. Not more has been going on here in the blog in the past week since your favorite darling eye guru has been on the road. I did manage to make a video summary for parents with myopic children, and as usual [...]
Quick recap of the past week of guru-inbox and some of our darling participant gains highlights. First up let's venture to the Le Meow forum and an update from a starting point of -0.75 to currently lens-free eyesight: Charts! That's beautiful. And here's an 'eye doctor' approved update from Clement: (don't get Outlook for Android, though) Another one to file [...]
Update: Post picture updated (minus previous awesome Jake guru image) after some fairly intriguing online threats from the "**** community". Note, I'm totally for religious freedom but equally for not being sh*theads towards people who happen to not share whatever beliefs. Various gods and idols may from time to time make an appearance on this blog, lending their divine cred to [...]
There are two ways this all could go, kittehz. One, Jake behaves hisself while writing this post. No rants, no told-ya-so, no taking all the easy potshots at retail optometry and their mind bogglingly dumb idea of "genetic myopia". Or. Or this could be yet another of the million exposes of an entire industry besieged by complete falsehoods, scientifically disproven claims, blind [...]
Looks like we've been neglecting progress updates again as of late. Oops! There are dozens of new progress updates in our Facebook group and while your old guru has managed to save a few of them, the actual posting here has been a bit wanting. A bit wanting and also my favorite part of the blog. Darling members making all [...]
