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.

Anything from accommodation range (age), ambient lighting, alternate close-up distances, preferences for distance vision diopter [...]

Newbies! Stop Reducing Too Much

Heads Up: Future "pro topic" videos will only be available in the Le Meow forum.  The forum is free to join, but requires some basic knowledge about endmyopia.  Answer the join questions here. There are a few recurring themes with kittehs getting started with getting that lens monkey off their back (or ... nose). The most recurring one is, newbies reducing too many diopters all at once. I get five billion e-mails and messages, all asking this same question.  Hey, [...]
