Hello to everyone,
I´m a very high diopter person from Germany. Unfortunatelly I ´ve already been in the double-digits diopter range (-10 dpt.), but I make very good progress now with following the endmyopia program. I´m myopic since I was about 8 years old, so this makes 30 years of living behind glasses (and contacts). Uff.
I´m soooo glad that I´ve found endmyopia and that finally there is a way to get rid of my very high myopia! (Thanks a lot, Jake!!!)
I always doubted this “it is genetic” story, because my parents had perfectly fine vision, but I didn´t know what to do, to at least stop the diopters from increasing. At some point, I think it was when I was “diagnosed” with this double digit number two years ago, I somehow gave up and emotionally prepared for losing my eyesight sooner or later in life.
I found endmyopia in march 2019 accidentally because an acquaintant had joined the 20/20 program and told me about his gains. Usually I would have thougt this endmyopia thing is a scam, but since this acquaintant is a very reasonable person , (and I didn´t have much to lose) I wanted to give it a try. Since then (as probably all the people here) I learned a lot about myopia in a relatively short period of time. As I couldn´t wait to take action, I also made a few of the common (but not severe) mistakes at the beginning.
I started with L -10.0 sph / -1.0 cyl., R -9.5 sph / -1.5 cyl.
Now, since the beginning of July, I wear -7.0 dpt. glasses for both eyes as my new normalised (no cylinder correction any more).
Myopia is now my favorite topic to talk about (although usually nobody else is interested in it ) and I´m still getting kind of euphoric when I think too much about my new special interest.
