Active Focus – Beginner Tips

Adding another one to the active focus link list, more words to help newbies find active focus. Active focus is really the only part of the whole approach that has that intangible aspect that I can't reliably explain the application of. Finding it is super easy for some, and a challenging journey for others. Since I don't want you to get hung up on not being able to find active focus, I keep adding new perspective to hopefully help you [...]

Why I Don’t Trust Optometrist Measurements

Video time! Last day in Vietnam, high speed Internet abounds, and your favorite eye guru has been carrying around all the video gear for two months now. It's clearly high time we got together for a little chat that's not just a text blog Website entry thing. So this time let's cover why I don't trust optometrist measurements. Or rather, how they approach the concept of "distance to blur" from the opposite end than recommended by your favorite Holiness, His [...]

Why You Should … Keep A Log Of Your Gains

A foundational principle of our way to improve eyesight is quantifying results. No feel-good fruity eye exercises, no om-shanti unicorn jungleberries, no chakras and chants and throwing away your glasses and hoping for the best.

That's what you should be on the lookout for with any given idea of implementing a regimen to extract a desired change. Keeping a [...]

Improve Your Eyesight: The 4 Steps Starter Video

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 [...]
