How To Guides.  There’s BackTo20/20, the exclusive lair of Jake’s personal students working on their eyesight.  And then there are the free guides, available to all readers, right here on @endmyopia.  So whether you prefer DIY, or don’t want to enable Jake by funding his debaucherous lifestyle, or are just dabbling, this section is for you.

A decade of eye guru experience, in hundreds of individual guide posts, many with student examples, all here in this section.  Dive right in!

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: 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 [...]

Do I Need A Test Lens Kit? (for vision improvement)

Here's a quick video lesson on whether you need a test lens kit. Note that this is based on many years of experience, which isn't easy to whittle down into a couple minutes of video. (Especially when you deal with the sort of majestical guru who doesn't script or plan his videos.) And as usual, don't go monkeying around with stuff unless you know what you're doing.  I get comments on videos from people who can't grasp basic math or [...]

Lower Diopters Don’t Improve Eyesight

So here is a vaguely common and recurring problem.  With some newbies to endmyopia. They read, browse, see all kinds of talk about reduced diopters.  So they think, hey that's great.  Less diopters equals improving eyesight.  Got it.  Going to reduce my diopters. Because everything in modern life has to be a quick answer-shortcut. Only takes a couple hours of reading to fully understand vision biology and myopia causes and also plzz-give-me-da-steps-bro. Or of course it could be a Jake's [...]
