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. We want to test a hypothesis (will x-stimulus improve my own eyesight) by measuring and logging and ultimately quantifying specific change.
That’s what you should be on the lookout for with any given idea of implementing a regimen to extract a desired change.
Important note: If you want to get started improving your own eyesight, I offer a number of courses, including options for one-on-one support with me personally. Check out the courses page for what’s currently available to help your eyeballs.
Keeping a log, especially with multiple data sets (centimeter, eye chart, outdoor landmark, even optometrist exam), will give you a basis to establish which practices are constructive, which yield no results, and which may even be detrimental. Are you making gains? Data will answer this, while subjective recollection and guessing and “I think that …” will not.
Here’s David, making this very point:
*He meant to say, nnn-numbers.
Quantification of all the bits.
Obviously your favorite darling eye guru has said this many times throughout the blog, and obviously it will continue to bear repeating. Keep a log of things you’re serious about.
It's your lens use and habits that keep making your eyes worse. And the massive hundred billion dollar optics industry loves it. They sell you ever increasing diopter glasses at a huge profit, and tell you stories of a mysterious genetic myopia illness.
It's quite possibly all nonsense. Your eyes might be perfectly healthy.
Check out Annette's post in our Facebook group. From -5.25 down to the last diopter already:
