Guys, it works! My official “prescription” by the optometrist is half a diopter less in each eye than when I started EM in May.
-*insert victory dance *-
I started at -2.00/-1.75D and am now officially down to -1.50/-1.25D. Woohoo!
They drive me crazy at the opto though man. The one lady was like “you can only improve your eyesight with intensive training every single day but you’re always starting from scratch so there’s actually no long term improvement happening, only temporary. Also, we won’t sell you underprescribed glasses. But let me check with my boss.” The boss is like “we’ll sell you any lenses you want, but you can only train minus with more minus, so make sure you buy stronger lenses than your prescription”
Then when I ordered my new norms they were all like “”
And then there was this one nice lady there who wished me luck with da gainz
So yeah, pretty much nobody knows what they’re talking about. Drives me crazy.
On another note, I have at last decided to go below -1.00 with my norms, because as I have mentioned before, I’m having trouble getting the right amount of blur. I can see 20/13 clearly with my -1.00s and yet no-correction is still too blurry. So I’ve been naughty with my next norms and gone ahead and ordered -0.50s (reduced half a diopter instead of a quarter)!!! I know I know, half a diopter in low myopia is like a million diopters I KNOW! But I’m still seeing better than 20/20 in -0.75s so I just had to do it.
