Long Term Uncorrected Low Myopia Blur Adaptation

Pro topic. You may have low myopia (below 2 diopters) and simply never started wearing glasses.  While in principle this is a smart move towards protecting your distance vision from lens-induced myopia, it doesn't alone address your existing myopia degree. It also creates an issue of habituated blur, something you'll have to address before being able to make meaningful progress in eliminating the low degree myopia. A question on this topic from the BackTo20/20 support forum: Smart self assessment. Here's [...]

How-To: Untangling Habituated Eye Strain

For those among our darling kittehs who don't like to read (or like video, if we want to go glass-half-full), today we've got another new quick video about eye strain management. Because nothing else will matter or work for 20/20 gains, until you got eye strain sorted. There's not really any approach to myopia reversal that makes much sense if it doesn't address close-up strain first.  That strain caused your initial (pseudo-) myopia in the first place, and if it's [...]

You Have More Ciliary Spasm Than You Think (A Guide)

Endmyopia and the sagely method to all the 20/20 gains, based on two very simple concepts: 1) Strain management and 2) productive stimulus. As the divine 20/20 rules state - you can't make much use of refractive state changing stimulus, as long as your eye's focusing muscle is locked up from excessive close-up use.  Those countless daily hours of screen time take their toll.  You might have great habits for all of your computer time, but perhaps you're really discounting [...]

Pro Topic: One Eye Improves Quickly, The Other Does Not (Why?)

You're working on your eyesight.  Things are going well. Except, not really.  You got one eye improving like a champ, and the other is lagging.  It's making you a little nutty, and you wish you knew what is going on.  If this is the case for you, read on! This is a scenario that comes up every so often, that warrants a bit of an entry in the freeloader blog guides section. Because of course and fortunately you have your [...]

Another ‘How To Get Past A Plateau’ Post

Been wearing the same normalized glasses forever, getting no more 20/20 gains?  Well darling ... you're most likely hanging out on a plateau. Let's discuss. There must be a million posts by now, discussing plateaus (tip:  Google "endmyopia plateau" and similar keywords to find posts).   Here's a new one from the support forum, starting with the case: I signed up over 6 months ago and have been wearing my normalized since June. I had already been wearing a pair [...]

Matthew: Dropped Diopters Too Fast, Hit Plateau

Just can't wait to drop those diopters?  Are you smarter than the last of the living eye gurus?  Did you say hey whatever, I can hazz what I wantzz!  Drop the diopterzzz now! Good for you.  Learning things the hard way. But then again, that's common.  Even a darling eye guru started out by reducing a -5 diopter needed correction to -3 diopters and then immediately setting off (with just those glasses) on a trip to Laos.  You're in good [...]
