I am a 40 year old male from India. My name is Arnab. I have been wearing glasses since the time I was 8 years old. Until recently, I never thought that I should search on the internet that how to reverse myopia. Finding Mr Jake Steiner and his endmyopia.org is such an amazing surprise for me. Last month, I went for my yearly eye check-up. I was asked to continue with the lens of -7.5 SP 0.50 CYL for the right eye and -5.50 SP 0.50 CYL for the left eye. I have read the 7 day introductory course and read the materials provided by Jake. I have ordered my first differentials by slashing 1.25 from SPH and 0.25 CYL. I have started with the good habits that are needed and trying increase my outdoor time. The major challenge is that I am a software programmer. Thank you Jake. Although, I have just started the journey, I am grateful that Jake has allowed me to join this group.
Welcome to the club!! First glasses are very exciting Are you sure on reduction of both SPH and CYL. As far as I understand from this forum it is better to avoid making complex reductions. I dont have CYL so I am not an expert here though.
Thanks for the welcome. I won’t go for complex reductions. I just went by the instruction in the mail, that said “Drop the astigmatism if it’s just 0.50 diopters, and instead of subtracting 1.5 diopters total, subtract only 1.25. If it’s a 0.25 astigmatism, just drop it, no other changes.” This is my first differentials. I will be careful.
Understood Enjoy your “Back To 20/20” journey
I’m also a software programmer! I’m working on developing some good habits like frequent brief walks outside.
Welcome and good luck!
