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: Fixed Bad Eyesight After LASIK | Shortsighted Podcast

Note: Also available as an episode in the Shortsighted Podcast 🎙.  To listen to it in your favorite podcast player, see our podcast page  for all available directories.   If you had LASIK years ago, odds are pretty decent that you're experiencing at least some degree of myopia, again. We talk about LASIK quite a bit, over here. Of course if [...]

Zoe: “I’m 20/20, Optometrist Still Tried To Sell Me Glasses”

Another day, another deluge of improvement reports. Mostly it's a deluge because uncle Jake only posts these once every third solar eclipse, and because many days it just feels like ... ohhh what's the point anyway. Zoe-Lee: 20/20 But Need Glasses?! Well, let's see if we can find a point ... Uhm .... I guess one possible point, you're going [...]

Christie: Optometrist Says, “No More Myopia”

Gains updates time, kittehz. First of all, please let me say that a darling guru is very, very far removed from the West.  And all the curious and rapidly changing ideas about free speech, extra enhanced political correctness, and generally things that an old man finds quite confusing. Seems like we'd have more pressing problems than trying to practice being [...]

Reducing Diopters, This Whole Thing, Is FOR WEIRDOS

Darling fellow endmyopia kittehz. Welcome back to another post, and another round of all the 20/20 gains.  Of which as you probably know by now, there are many.   But let's start this one out with something that bugs your favorite holy sage eyeguru, and I don't know what to do about it. Every so often I get an e-mail [...]

Joonas: From -2.00 D To 20/15 Without Glasses

No rants today, darlings. No rants, and no rambles.  Just a quick update that I couldn't possibly pass on posting right now for you.  Low myopia back to 20/20 is a tricky one.  Though if you follow the correct approach, you will absolutely get there.   In fact, many participants experience a very similar progression. Here's Joonas progress, in his [...]

From 20/50 To 20/20, Angry Optometrist, & More

Dearest darling kittehz. It's time for the weekly progress reports update, which is turning more into a sometimes-eventually progress reports udate. I need to hire somebody to post these.  There's really no way otherwise that they're getting done on a regular enough basis.  We get so, SO many progress reports (I love them all, please do keep them coming) and [...]
