Hello everybody !
I heard a while ago, in a stunning podcast of The Shortsighted Podcast, a guy full of sense who had reduced really successfully : “reduce when 1cm under your current subscription”. I know we don’t have to take things literally and every path is one’s own, but still, I found it quite relevant.
That’s what I intended to do and what I have more or less done past reductions (done 2 reducs for now). But it has been three months since last reduction, time to reduce again, and I find I’m stuck to more or less 1cm under my previous prescription… That is to say, 31-32 L instead of what should be 34. Which seems a bit weird to me especially for my left eye which I’ve been doing patching with and which has worked quite well, it has improved.
I read also that indeed, improvement can be seen first on Snellen rather than on centimeter measurement.
What do you think ? Does this mean I should need a 4th month before reducing because eyes didn’t have the time to catch up, OR simply that my eyes cannot improve further with that current subscription, and that’s a sign it’s time to reduce ?
Do this “rule” apply to you usually ?
