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:
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 [...]
Your favorite old beardly sage quite likes to read your improvement updates. I sometimes say there's no way I can post them all, but that's not me complaining. Getting them is great, they're the best part of my mornings while making it through e-mail and messages. Even if I don't manage to find the time to save each of them [...]
Kittehs. It's not easy to shares these updates with you, without lapsing into giant guru rants. In the face of overwhelming 20/20 gains reported literally every single day, you have to wonder how retail optometry the world over continues to be 100% oblivious. Or you don't wonder at all because you took economics 101 in school. EVERYBODY GETS GLASSES. NOW [...]
It takes time to get all the way back to 20/20. Also, you little sloppy dirty hippy heathens, the blog image is very clearly not photoshopped. Sergeant Warbeard Jake WILL NOT TOLERATE BACKTALK FROM YOU MEOW-SERS! SIR YES SIR! Oh shut it Jake, you're thinking. Either way. 20/20 done the right way takes time. More time than having your corneas [...]
