Hi all, very excited to be here. My name is Linda and I live in Ontario, Canada.
I started researching natural vision after my optometrist suggested bifocals and I said, I don’t think so!
I’m 55 and have had mild myopia since probably grade school - I would memorize the eye chart and cheat on the eye tests we had in school. In university I got very good at listening to lectures and taking notes that way - tricky for a visual learner!
While I was in university a boyfriend got me to get myself glasses so I would be a safer driver. Time passed, had kids, had jobs…
An ‘expired’ prescription that I got while exploring Bates methods is OD -2 and -.75 and OS -1.75 and -1.25 - this was 2017. While I was supposedly working on my vision, hahaha, watching the odd webinar, getting excited and palming and sunning and swinging for a few days and then giving up again, my vision got worse OD -2.25 and -1.00 OS -2.00 and -.1.75.
The other day, like, a few days ago, on Sunday I think, I got an email from Jake (I noticed I was already subscribed…huh…) and I signed up for the 7 day email - hmmm, on day 4, so I guess it was 4 days ago. I was watching one of the interviews Jake does on YouTube and there was an understandable Active Focus description, so I picked up a bottle on my desk, noticed a blurry line, blinked and it cleared - omg!
So, I’ve started challenging my vision (I stopped wearing my glasses in 2016 or so, only for driving…) with closed caption on YouTube videos and an eye chart on the wall and during morning dog walks.
And…this morning, I moved my monitor back 7"! That puts my stronger eye in -1.5!!! better than 2017 - it’s amazing! Hubby is hoping it will make me see the need to clean better…lol…
So, clearly happy to be here,
ps have noticed my astigmatism has totally improved too - a lot less double vision
