Hi, I’m Kit, and I’m a high myope! My prescription when I started with EndMyopia in March was
R: -16.00 -1.25 axis 32 Prism BU 1.00
L: -13.75 -2.25 axis 155 Prism BD 1.00
I used to wear contacts all day every day, but a few years ago, just could no longer tolerate them. I went to a vision therapist who put me in prisms, which helped, but recently my vision had worsened. I’ve also had wet macular degeneration 12 years ago, and some huge nasty floaters. I was quickly developing cataracts, but surgery for me would be tricky, and probably cause worse problems. I was getting frantic about being able to keep any vision into my later years.
I found EndMyopia when I was looking for natural ways to eliminate cataracts, which I have successfully done after seven months - no surgery needed! I read everything out there for natural vision improvement and tried the Bates Method several times in the past 23 years, with very little improvement. Jake’s explanation of how my eyes have worsened over the years was so full of sense, reason and science, I knew he was right and that it would work for me! I’m 56 but never felt age had anything to do with it because I’ve known 80- and 90-year-olds with great vision.
I changed my diet a year ago to a ketogenetic one, knowing that helping the brain would help my eyes. The diet has definitely helped! Eliminating sugar and its substitutes, grains, and high carbs has helped my eyes not to sting any more, among other improvements. And Endmyopia has helped not only begin to improve my vision, but my eyes no longer ache, I am not fighting to see. I know this will take a long time to work my way back, but I am so happy to finally have the ability to heal, and to see better and better each year!
I’m an extreme introvert, probably because of my lack of vision, and do a lot of up-close things. One thing Jake has helped me realize is that I don’t look out far very often - again, because I couldn’t see well, I learned not to. I realize that my level of awareness is low because of that, and I am now looking for fun things to do where I can look around more. Stepping away from the computer seems to be the hardest thing to do, and so rewarding once I do it. Changing habits.
I’m thankful for this community and for all the sharing of experiences that everyone is doing. Thank you Jake, for making this all happen!
