For the back story: My Intro
Decided to post what I’ve done and found. I rarely measure on the Snellen. I’ve got my own “chart” I’ll try to share later. I’ve had a bad experience measuring cms this time as well so little data to share.
*All of my glasses are equalized and with no cylinder correction.
*When I say messy vision, it’s some clear image, mixed with blur and double vision. Credit to Gemily for the term messy as I was calling it crap in my notes.
*When I reference clarity, it refers to seeing detail in my “chart” or just when the messiness is gone.
2020 I’ve been wearing -2.75 and need -3.0. I’ve lost nearly all accommodation and anything closer than arms length is blurry. Time to restart.
4/16 I started using differentials again finally
5/10 switched to -2.5 normalized. Around 20/30
7/10 started getting some good clarity
7/12 everything has good clarity all the time with slightest of blur in dark. No detectable double vision or astigmatism.
7/15 Not quite 20/20 at 80 lumens
7/24 140 lumens, 30min after waking, -2.50 = 20/20. -2.25 close but not quite 20/30. Switched to -2.25 normalized. Blur challenge is back. Feels good. Good vision in sunlight.
Late July to early August I’m finally convinced I’ve found AF.
8/9 Noticed some improved clarity, rather than just blur.
9/13 Vision had been messy for a couple weeks.
Vision clearing up the day after drinking no less.
9/27 2 weeks of bouncing between clear and messy vision, and I woke up this morning with the best vision since July. I’ve done hours of extreme close work today and eye strain and ciliary spasm have won over.
10/2 another noticable improvement. Green lights are signs are starting to come into focus sooner. Road white line doubling is completely gone for half the day or so. Blur only noticeable if I really look for it, also for first half of the day. Good vision now is a solid 20/25.
10/2 First day I’ve noticed no loss in vision by days end even in low light.
I’ll not even consider reducing to -2.0 for another month, maybe 2, but I’m happy with the current progress.
I can currently read on my phone or paper with my normalized at 16in or about 40cm. I make an effort to read a text or sign a paper to exercise my ciliary. 6 months ago the speedometer in many vehicles was about my near focus. I get ciliary lock up way too fast, so I limit such efforts.
That’ll do for today.
