Hey everyone. Ive been watching and reading some of y’alls improvements on the forums or YT and its getting me motivated to keep persevering on EM and I really do want this to work, but I need some help.
I stared off with L. eye -4.75 (.50 cyl) and R, -4.50 (.70 cyl) glasses, which I got 4-5 years ago and that I am still wearing since attempting em 2 years ago. I thought I was blur adapted, because I checked my eyesight and im suppose to wear -5 and -4.75 lens, but I was able to see the 20/25 or 20/20 with my current glasses in good lighting. During my journey, I increased my glasses up by .25, but there was no stimulus for me to do af and I didnt make progress. A little while later I tried .25 D less in the glasses I started off with, but the challenge was too high and I was straining to correct the blur.
Ive narrowed it down to not getting enough stimulus and my glasses strength, but Im not sure if I should go up or down by .25 again, as Ive become too comfortable with my starting glasses, they are the perfect normalised, but I think im blur adapted to them. Not to mention, they got scratched up patches on them recently. that I cant make progress with them. What would make the most sense?
And does anyone know where I can get an accurate 6 meter snellen chart? Theres 3m online, but I liked the 6m. I kinda lost the the EM’s snellen when I stopped em for a while, which isnt available anymore to the public. I dont really want to buy the rough guide, because I think I have a good understanding of the basic concepts.
