Hi all. Uploaded three episodes so far which you can find below:
This is a follow-on from my first thread I made. I’ve recieved my differentials and worn them for about nine days from today and have already seen improvements within that period. The initial improvements can apparently be chalked up to overprescription+reducing eye strain+learning active focus - so probably unlikely the very good improvement will last into the future. My fingers are completely crossed I’m a ‘crazy myopia improvement case’ like some of those featured in the blog, blasting into no glasses in under a year. That’d be great, but I’m completely prepared to go 0.75 diopters of improvement a year if I have to. The fact I’ve completely ruled out laser eye surgery is a ‘life win’ enough!
I’ve broken with endmyopia gurudom and already ordered a new pair of differentials. I’m sorry, but the screen is too clear for my eyes at normal operating distance now to where I’d have to type with Inspector Gadget arms to still have a blur horizon.
I need to get my first prescriptions from when I was 8 to 12 years old and see how much my prescription changed in that period. Jake has mentioned that genetic factors can influence how bad myopia can progress from lenses, but also said that this wouldn’t necessarily work in reverse (paraphrasing from a video he made). So not ‘necessarily’, but possibly! I’m gonna put my broscience hat on and hope for the best when I find these old prescriptions.
The fact that the wider public is not informed about the dangers of glasses and contact lenses for ‘vision improvement’ is a complete disgrace. This should be an international scandal! That’s the magnitude of the problem. I can’t wait for the day endmyopia goes completely viral. I’m going to do my part by keeping up to date with the video logs
