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.)

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.
