Banned from the Gym to 20/20 Vision, Part 1, is now available on Amazon if one searches Amazon with "banned from the gym":

After getting banned from golds gym and walking to places instead of driving for an alternative form of exercise, real eye exam results from an optometrist every month for two years until the drivers license vision restriction got removed:

On this thread, I'll answer any questions about what I did, including about what's in the book.

Knowing what I know now, it's hard to believe that anyone whose worst vision was in the -3s or better, would not do this eye stuff and get their drivers license vision restriction removed.

how does someone with -4 get started to improve ?

Go cold turkey, no glasses or contact lenses.  If -4 is the worst you've ever been, start watching NFL football on TV from 8 ft away during daylight.  As you're watching, avoid trying to make out what you see.  If your eyes tear up, try to zone out to relax instead of blinking.  Also spend a lot of time outside walking around a lot in wide open areas.  Just watch out when you cross streets with -4 eyes, especially during twilight hours.  That's what I did to start out.

My vision is not 20/20 now, but it's probably better than some who claim to have 20/20 vision if they base theirs on blur interpreting a familiar line on an eyechart on their wall.  At eye exams administered by an optometrist that involve an unfamiliar eyechart in a darkroom, I haven't yet been able to get beyond the 20/25 line.

Even if I could read the 20/20 line in the optometrist's exam, I'd still be reluctant to say I have 20/20 vision until my refractive error is at zero diopters.  That's why the book says Part 1.  I need to get to zero diopter 20/20 vision for there to be a Part 2 book.

okay

so if a person has -4, what do they do to improve apart from stopping glasses ?

Spend a lot of time outside in wide open areas, preferably symmetrical wide open areas that are both wide and deep and deeper than they are wide.  One example is walking in the centers of long straight low traffic residential side streets.  Walking is better than standing still since walking is more challenging for the eyes, similar to how it's more challenging to focus a moving camera than a stationary one.

If your vision is truly better, at night the halos around lights will seem smaller.

When you walk around outside in centers of long straight side streets to improve vision, ideally at least 30 minutes a session, it's important to keep the eyes relaxed as much as possible for optimum results.  If your eyes are still tense even after trying to relax them, you may have to zone out a little when you walk.  Naturally zone out a little, not with drugs or alcohol.  Seem a little droopy-eyed if you have to.  That's the direct opposite of trying to make out what you see, which you should avoid like the plague.  I say that because sometimes it's tempting to test your vision to see what street signs you can read from a distance, or if you can see this or that object.

Palming eyes inside a darkroom for 20 minutes at a time can also help the eyes become more relaxed before you go outside for those 30 minute sessions.

I'd try to go down from -4 to -3 this way, and then start using the +.5 plus lens for up close work once you get you get to -3.

That's based on -4 being the worst your vision ever was.  If your vision was once -5, then it's going to be tougher to get down to -3 without plus lenses and you may have to start using plus lenses once your eyes improve to the -3.5 level.
