End of Dark Season Update
For my purposes (and by reasonable measures), today is the last day of the dark season. Solar power here has more than doubled since Christmas, and is rising very fast now. Here are my plots of a little over a year, to show my results from this dark season in perspective:
There’s clearly some worsening on both eyes, but so far, it’s not very fast. Of course I am hoping that this will turn around as February ends, like it did last year. But one event doesn’t make a statistic, so I’ll have to wait and see. (Into the distance, hopefully. )
The AL EMA now spans a full year! This yields objective YoY numbers: -78 µm for the left eye, and -102 µm for the right.
So we get a result very similar to the outdoor experiment:
- Yes, I could achieve year-over-year shortening
- But it is slow, at only at about a third of the suggested standard rate.
At this point, naysayers can still argue that this small level of annual change can be random. But I believe that if I could repeat the same pattern of shortening over a second year, this would be rather hard to explain away, serving as noteworthy evidence that the mainstream is incorrect about dismissing the Reduced Lens Method.
Which puts a timer on this experiment. One one hand, if my improvement doesn’t return soon, I have a problem. On the other, if it does, the mainstream will have a problem in the not too distant future.
I will continue updating for a bit longer to show if my improvement troubles resolve with the dark season’s end.
