Hey crew! I’ve debated joining endmyopia for, like, a year, but finally decided to take the plunge. My DIY methods weren’t quite cutting it…
I’m 34 and have been in glasses/contacts since age 9. I tpped out at -5 a number of years ago, with dry, contact-weary eyes to show for it. After stumbling across the Bates Method about a year ago, I became intrigued by the idea of fixing my visions (and talking about it constantly; my brother calls it my Big Glasses conspiracy theory ). I immediately bought WAY low glasses (-3) and got to work.
Surprisingly, I did really well with distance vision at first -if the sun was out and I had plenty of time to blink/accomodate. I think it was because I spent a lot of time on the highway, driving for work, scanning horizons. But my medium and close vision remained a challenge, and indoors? Forget about it. Since covid stopped my work travel/highway driving, I lost touch with working on my eyes altogether.
Somewhere along the way I found endmyopia, which appealed to me WAY more than Bates for its matter-of-factness and, of course, science. I’m not really one to mindset and yoga my way into physiological change. So here I am. Working on active focus around my house, and super excited to prioritize my vision again this year.
Looking forward to getting to know y’all and hearing about your experiences!
