I have first know about Endmyopia few years ago, like three, but at the time I did not did anything specific asside not wearing glasses ^^ but I had and have found active focus since.
As strange as it seems, I am not primarily concerned about my myopia itself, it is more a side problem to me. Since few years I am quite sensible to light in the evening. It is not technically light sensibility (I don’t care during the day), it is something named “eye strain”, based on what I can find on the Mayo Clinic website.
So basically, my dry eyes (computer usage) and the lack of correction are responsible for this ^^ I have seen an ophtalmologist, there is nothing else to worry about.
I like Jake’s content, and I am glad to have seen the growth of the endmyopia wiki since few years. Because I like this content, I am skeptical as much, to avoid confirmation biais. I have read some reviews on myopia/axial elongation etiology and found nothing that contradict the approach of endmyopia.
In summary :
My RX, the prescription, is of -1D, for each eyes. Funny enough, I was wearing glasses at high school and Uni (to see what the teacher was writing,and just this) and got also an other prescription later than I have never weared. Both were equal and stronger than this, so, or I was over corrected, or my myopia regressed already.
I got a prescription of eyes drop. I did some research this morning, the eyes drop are preservative free ^^
I am blur adapted. It is obvious for me and the ophtalmologist mentionned it to me.
Here is my current thought process/course of action :
I plan to wear my glasses only in the evening if I go out, to rest my eyes. It is the use I have for them. I think active focus can be a double edge sword for the last diopter : inducing positive stimulus, but creating eye strain for end of day.
I am looking to remove the blur adaptation. I have two glasses, one for bike and one casual. I am looking for the best frequency to wear them to reminds the brain than world is not blurry at all. I have already a lot more of active focus since I wear them by intermitence.
I have my eyes drops. So, I did try them, and i was able to go out in the evening without eye strain at all. I did not slept well sometimes when I took some, and I was worried about their content/potential side effect (I have been with insomnia problems, problems that I cured alone with the help of scientific litterature, other reason why I am quite sensible to the approach of endmyopia, but also slightly paranoid on sleep ^^). But turns out they are preservative free ^^ I do think that I maybe slept weirdly because of something else when I am taking them. So, I plan to try them again in a controled environment, to see the effect ^^
I am currently going from one job to an other, so I have a bit of time to see this. Writting this post is also a way to help me organized my thought ^^
If someone have testimony on blur adaptation, or last diopter, or eye strain, I would be happy to hear about this ^^. I have already listened to the differents podcast on people on last diopters ^^
What else to say. I did biology studies, a bit of phd of medecine. I am in IT now, working on computer. I do a bit or a lot of smartphone depending of the day, including for pokemon go. But I do like to bike for pokemon go, and not really like to look at my screen all the time (pogo is more helpfull than problematic I think, it induced a lot of healthy habits).
