The Goal Post: No Glasses Eyesight (20/40 – 20/20 Range)2018-12-02T04:34:24+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:

Louise: -1.50 Eyesight Post LASIK Regression To 20/20 (& more)

Hello darlings! After a bit of a travel hiatus and focus on building the secret Le Meow community with many upcoming extended how-to guides and videos, it's finally time to get through some 20/20 gains updates again.   Yes, the gains have been piling up as usual. Today we'll have post LASIK gains, and optometrist confirmed gains, and child myopia [...]

Kashyap: 9 Year Old Daughter From 27 cm to 139 cm

Right to the point, today. Jakey's got kids (just one for now but more hopefully coming soon).  It's one thing to be myopic yourself, letting yourself go.   Your kids, though.  They deserve for us to give them the best possible head start. A head start that often doesn't benefit from retail optometry.   Here's Kashyap: Up to you. Myopia [...]

Guixiao: 8 Year Old Son’s Myopia REVERSED

Today, just a quick one.  No epic rants, no momentous digressions. This one is for you if you have kids.  If you have kids and you'd rather not have them become socially awkward, withdrawn, afraid of sports and physical activities because they're now stuck with glasses.   Myopia is a refractive state, nothing more.  And the eye is designed to [...]

Bella: January -4.75 –> May 20/30 Without Glasses (!)

We need to do more video, kittehs. Just so you can see an eye guru's very self satisfied, smirkey, told-ya-so face.   Which is pretty much the standard face these days. Yes, myopia is a bullshit, made-up "illness" just to sell you a nice, quick fix for a bunch of money.  It's easy recurring revenue, and both the dealers and [...]

Chiang: Back To 20/20 Vision (plus Michael, who we saved $8,000)

Yes yes kittehs, it's been a while.  Yet again. Uncle Jake has been experiencing some endmyopia burnout.  Is experiencing it, still.  That and actual business projects have been taking over more of the schedule.  Gotta make them monies on occasion, since unlike what the pea brain haters online like to imagine, this whole project isn't exactly a goldmine. It's a [...]
