October 1 was the 5 1/2 year mark for me. My 20/40 no glasses still isn’t quite consistent enough to try and knock the DMV test yet, but I do think that I’ve hit the point of no return.
About August of 2018, I was -1.00, and I got to a point where I felt like I was fighting with the lenses. I reduced to -0.75. About three weeks ago, I ordered -0.50 because I hit that point with -0.75. Even though I wasn’t wearing them much, the gap between -0.75 and no glasses was still too big. My no glasses vision was too inconsistent and had too much blur to be full time without glasses.
When I got the -0.50, they gave me that tiny bit of support I was looking for. But, after about 10 days with them, I just didn’t want to wear them anymore. Again, I felt like I was fighting with them. So, going forward, except on an as needed basis, I’m going without glasses. This will be interesting as the light decreases, but over the past 3 days, I seem to be doing pretty well.
We’ll see how long it takes to stabilize a 20/40…
