I’m an A Level sutudent in the UK. I noticed my eyesight began to deteriorate during the first lockdown, and in November 20/20 I was told I have -0.5 D and -0.75 D myopia. Whilst this doesn’t sound like a massive problem, I have always wanted to become a pilot and it is likely now that I won’t be able to unless I can get back to 20/20. I found edmyopia after extensive research online in December, but I have also tried Todd Becker’s methods and I have researched the Bates method with much scepticism. Since finding out I have myopia, I have found my mental health deteriorating, particularly since my family and optometrist do not believe it is possible to reverse myopia.
I have been trying Jake’s method since December, but I have seen no improvement or results yet; I’m not sure if this is because I study so intensely for my school so haven’t been albe to clear my ciliary spasm, or if I’m just doing it wrong.
I have tried to improve my distance vision more by going for a dog walk or a run every day and I also try to practice the 202020 rule. As I am a student, I wear plus lenses when doing my work, and I have noticed that I can clear some blur whilst wearing these glasses but not when I’m looking to the distance at something slightly blurry. Is this active focus or not?
I was hoping there would be someone on here who was in a similar situation to me and has some advice as to how they got back to 20/20 or have any tips for me to try.
