Maurice: Finally Found Distance Active Focus!

As always your favorite old homeless eye guru is guilty of not posting nearly enough guides and how-to's and updates in the blog. Guilty as charged, your honor. You will find more frequently updated content in Le Meow (our private forum) and in our Facebook group.  A lot of times I'll just screenshot an interesting e-mail and post it in either of those venues since it takes so much less time than writing a blog post here.  So if you're [...]

Improve Your Eyesight: The 4 Steps Starter Video

Ok, darlings. Finally, only took about three years, I made you a bit of a summary video of all the endmyopia pieces involved in improving your eyesight.  As usually it includes more talking than a well scripted version would likely produce, but that's just how we roll around here. The video is now also added to the 7 day e-mail series and the 'start here' link - so that hopefully more newbies will be able to get a useful introduction [...]

Can I Get BIG Vision Improvements Instead of Small Ones?

Everybody is chasing the big gains. We want the big money fast, we want the big gains fast, we want everything, and we want it NOW. Also the case for 20/20 gains, especially when your favorite darling guru posts updates from participants that include massive diopter reductions.  Yes, it's a bit my fault for stoking the fire of 20/20 gains greed.  And while the initial gains are fantastic for motivation and really getting into getting your eyes back, there's more [...]

Low Myopia, Close-Up Glasses: A Plus Lens Use Case?

Today, a quick video on low-myopia differential glasses (plus lens) scenario. Note that while this covers the general, common scenario, we're talking about biology here.  Biology which varies from one person to the next, and there are countless exceptions, tweaks, and considerations.  Watch this as a starting point, and one piece of the puzzle (rather than an absolute answer for everything). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyyN8ed3JN4 A bit of a pro topic. Some of these videos are only available from the Pro Topics playlist. [...]

High Myopia Measuring Tool: Nate Tweaks The Diopter Tape

Our darling Facebook group gets the occasional brilliant post. Or maybe it's quite a few, though it does get its fair share of repeating newbie questions.  Pro tip:  If you want to make it into the group, answer all the join questions - I've been getting quite strict about not letting riff-raff into the group, lately. Here's Nate's high diopter tape tweak: Psychology might matter. To download your own (free) diopter ruler, courtesy of uncle Jake, or various awesome eye [...]

Pro Topic: Managing Your Maximum Diopter Gap

Diopter Gap: Number of diopters between your differential and normalized correction. This one falls squarely into advance topics. For most people, choosing a differential based on ergonomically comfortable close-up distance from a computer screen, and a differential based on about 20/30 on a Snellen chart, results in a diopter gap of around 1.5 diopters.   Lots of factors can play into the individual diopter gap. Anything from accommodation range (age), ambient lighting, alternate close-up distances, preferences for distance vision diopter [...]
