Hi everyone, I am Lucy and I am a Chinese living in the U.S. I just learned about endmyopia last week and I was very excited to see so many progress posts.
I have had myopia ever since first grade. I remembered for the first seven or eight years, every time I went to the optometrist my prescription went up by -1 and soon followed by cylinder increase too. I was terrified thinking that I was going to go blind, but also feeling hopeless since my parents searched for everything they can be found nothing that could help improve my eyes. Fortunately, my eyes stabilized a bit after middle school, but they still gradually grew worse. The latest prescription I had was from 2019：
Sphere -8.75 Cyl -2.00 Axis 175
Sphere -9.00 Cyl -1.75 Axis 172
I am currently still absorbing and exploring all the information we have. I am honestly a bit overwhelmed - considered joining the paid program but I didn’t meet the minimum age requirement - so I was hoping that the community could give me some help in getting started on the right track:
So far from the 7 days newsletters and some info on the forum/site, I gathered the notion that to improve our eyes we need to 1) constantly practice active focus, 2) get differential glasses for close up, 3) try to develop good habits like the 3 hr rule, and 4) keep track of our measurements daily. Is that mostly right? Please let me know if I am still missing something important.
In addition, if anyone also has high myopia, I would greatly appreciate any sharing of tips/experiences as well
Thanks you guys
