Hello All – 50+ year myope, been exploring various vision improvement programs in books without much progress. So glad to have found Enmyopia!! So here’s my starting point: recently the eye dr. called it -5.75, -6, plus cylinder correction. Those spherical diopters are slightly over-prescribed, I discovered through repeated measurements at home, so should be -.25 lower in each eye. So my starting point with normalized (just placed order for first -5.25 and -5.50, keeping the cylinder/axis the same (-1.0, -.75, axis 90 in both).
I’ve been improving my habits with devices (laptop instead of phone in face, etc.). I’m also using differentials that I’ve had for some years (called computer glasses at the time). My regular glasses are also progressives which are absolutely annoying! I am thinking that the presbyopia may take care of itself over time. I didn’t need them until I was in my 50s, so we’ll see.
I’m taking the wholistic approach with diet (lower carb, healthy fats, moderate protein), exercise (lots of walking, yoga, weights), nutritional supplements, and some detox (had an issue with dental metals that have been removed). I’m an avid reader but am listening to podcasts and audio books more, reducing screen time.
So we’ll see! Everyone take care!
