I have seen some improvement in my eyesight over the last 5 months since I started the EM approach, and thought I’d get an optometrist to test my sight. Short version: didn’t like the first or second optometrist (who seemed very impatient about answering my questions), so went to a third. All within the same week. I am just really interested in establishing a new baseline.
Sunday - 5.75 and -6.75 diopters, with 0.50 and 0.75 CYL/astigmatism.
Monday -5.50 and -6.25 diopters, with 0.75 and 0.75 CYL/astigmatism.
Thursday -6.75 and -7.50 diopters, with 0.50 and 0.25 CYL/astigmatism.
There is 1 DIOPTER OR MORE difference between the lowest and highest results?!!
What the hell. I have completely lost whatever shred of faith I had left in optometrists to do anything for me.
Before this week, in April 2021, my eye test result by a different optometrist was -6.25 and -6.50 with 0.50 CYL (which was an improvement from January so I was ecstatic).
I think I’ll just start again, refresh myself on the EM resources and just keep going…
And by the way, all 3 optometrists were firmly of the opinion that under-correcting a prescription at all made eyesight worse when I asked them - they will always prescribe full strength. One optometrist even said over-correcting may be better than under-correcting. That’s terrifying…
