Hi everyone, as I have gone without glasses for very long, and since I have been doing a lot of close-up work without letting my eyes follow the 20-20-20 rule ever since my eyes from in -1 diopter in 2013, my eyes have slowly worsened to -3.50 now. I believe another reason for this is because I have refused to wear glasses, and wanted to correct myself using those “eye exercises” that seemed to help but not in the long run.
Recently when I have been trying active focus, I just didn’t seem to get the stimulus to push away the blur, no matter how much I tried, and that is when I realised I would have been blur adapted. Since I have been living in blur since a very young age (currently 19), I believe that my eyes would not have understood what real clarity means. Therefore, now I have gotten my full prescription glasses of -3.50.
My question then would be, what are the dos and don’ts that I am supposed to be doing with my full prescribed glasses?
- Should I continue to wear them for close up work, or just use it for distance vision, and get differentials for close up?
- Roughly long should I wear my full prescribed glasses for?
- Can I still performed active focus, with my differentials, if I wear them for close up?
- When I am performing the 20-20-20 rule, and look out of my window, do I wear my fully prescribed glasses, undercorrected normalized glasses, or no glasses?
I saw the video of @jakey of correcting low myopia blur adaptation, however, I was just a bit confused for people with high myopia, like mine. Am grateful for your response! Thank you very much! Feel free to add more suggestions if I am going in the write pathway!
