I’m seven months into my EM journey, and have reduced -3.5 to -2.5 in two steps and almost see 20/20 with current normalized. However, I only recently experienced the dramatic effect that AF can have, so I actually didn’t “get it” completely before. Could I still have gotten any actual AL gains? I’ve felt a little effect of clearing the blur and my cm measurements and Snellen results seem okay! So I really don’t think it’s blur adaptation but am feeling a bit weary, I don’t want to waste time by reducing too quickly. (I’ve reduced 0.5 both times, but the second one I actually tried 0.25 reduction first and felt that there was no challenge at all.)
I suppose the actual question is: are real AL gains possible without “real” or “dramatic” AF?
