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.

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.

I even took the time to make you printable eye charts and my own invention, the diopter measuring tape – and even a tool to (somewhat) measure your astigmatism. All free, all adding to the no-excuses situation of your eyeballs just waiting for you to get off your a** and take care of them properly.
