Choosing Normalized Diopters

Today, a quick video discussing how you might find a good normalized diopter compromise.  There are quite a few videos in our YouTube channel that I haven't reposted here, it's worth subscribing there in case I miss sharing new content here. Normalized diopter talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXNfjfcbFJk Not in a very video mood, this guru. It does all boil down to personal preference and suiting your scenario and lifestyle.  The more you measure, the more you actively take part in your visual [...]

Pushing Focus vs. Pulling Focus

Much of the terminology around endmyopia has existed in the countless wind swept millennia before the Internet.   Think temples and ruins of temples and ancient spiritual sacrifices. Or not any of that, maybe just that we started with endmyopia before the Internet did take over the world.  Because of that (and because Jake's lazy and disorganized) I haven't necessarily put all of the terms we use here, in the FAQ.  Usually it's when somebody asks, and I look, and [...]

Active Focus: “Describe The Blur”

Quick one today, a bit of participant perspective on how to find active focus. As you probably know, active focus can be an elusive beast.  It's difficult to explain, since the part of how to get there is an intangible, personal kind of experience.   To help with this, I compiled the active focus link list and in it, various individual explanations on what it means and how people found it for themselves.   It's usually some way of explaining [...]

Video: Should I Reduce My Diopters?

Arch bishop Papa Giorgio VonderCrankypants just uploaded a new video for you, discussing a very commonly posed endmyopia question. Which is, hey Jake.  Should I reduce my diopters? This question is one of those curiously self-answering ones, once you stop and think about what diopters are about, and why you'd possibly want to reduce them. Or in other words, this is rarely the actual question to ponder. More on this in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqRVo2te_BU Jovial, that's the word you're looking [...]

Low Myopia Diopters: Do You Need Close-Up Glasses?

It's been a while since we've gotten into Q&A and diopter how-to posts. I'm working on doing more in video format since it seems that's the way we're headed with online communicating in general.  Also I like to torture you with my homeless-man face. So the question here is this: You have low myopia, in the -1.50 diopter or lower-ish range.  You may have some amount of spherical diopter ratio and maybe some astigmatism, too.  Given this scenario, do you [...]

Janna: Double Vision Resolved, -2.25 D To 20/25 (No Glasses)

The 'weekly' progress report compendium is still waiting on my desktop, growing daily in contributions. Really not a moment of extra time these days, working on off-grid essentials before the monsoon season kicks in full force.  There's basically going to be no building things outside for the next five or six months.  So whatever we may want to get done, it's crunch time right now. Anyway.  Even with all that, had to come in to share this 20/20 progress update [...]
