Hi, I’ve been here for a while but I didn’t introduce myself …
Long story short: after years of increasing diopters I was at -2.75 and -2.5 with some astigmatism in both eyes.
I discovered Bates book 6-7 years ago but I didn’t get results (although I felt very relaxed after palming the first time).
2 or 3 years after that I went into a new job with tons of hours outdoors (8h or more) and on my free time I studied and read a lot but even with that I went in a little bit less than 2 years from almost -3 to -1 diopter on each side and no astigmatism!!! it was tested by an optician because I wasn’t doing any exercise or nothing, just being outdoors (in nature) without glasses.
Sadly I’m not on that position anymore and I have a lot of computer time nowadays, but I discovered Jake and his proyect 2 years ago and I’m very happy because although I’m still at -1 now I enjoy a lot the fact of observing everything. Currently I’m using -1D glasses every now and then and I’ll buy -0.75D for stimulus.
When I was a kid I used to thing if I were able to ask for any wish I’d ask for a perfect vision. 20 years ago that was talking nonsense… Now I see it possible.
Thank you Jake and everybody for this gift.
Sincerely - Luis Enrique.
