Rehabilitation / Astigmatism
« Last post by graeme on June 23, 2020, 11:10:21 AM »
I first tried in 2014, and my vision improved. But I hit a wall after Warby Parker started requiring prescriptions for lenses, so I could no longer easily get new lenses as my prescription decreased. I put things aside for a while.

However, trouble struck in early 2018, as I started developing astigmatism in my right eye. It has worsened now. I am not sure if eye exercises caused it, or if it is natural degeneration. The last time I got a prescription (last year), the OD was somewhat improved from prior measures, but the astigmatism was there. The net result currently is my vision is quite a bit worse, as astigmatism makes things blurry even at near distances.

Fortunately it isn't that large, only 0.5-0.75 or so. A bit hard to tell as I can't measure at optometrist due to pandemic.

My question is: what would everyone recommend for attempting to fix this? With myopia, it's clear to just read things at a distance, get lots of sunlight, look in the distance, etc. I am less sure if there's anything to do to fix astigmatism.

Appreciate your thoughts!

I think darkness naturally causes people to strain to see more without realizing it.

Stop wearing your glasses for everything except driving.

I'd like to ask for advice since I'm having trouble making consistent/any improvements.
I'm 25 and found todd's talk about myopia some time ago.
The idea of eyesight being variable was interesting to me as my eyes got worse in school. If it can get worse why should one not be able to recover.
Thanks for opening a discourse and not saying it is impossible.

My last prescription I had for several years now was -2.75 on both eyes and some astigmatism in the right eye that i think was purely induced by wearing my glasses all the time.

The glasses i bought in Feb 2019 are -1.25 and -2.25 of which the lower is for computer work since i can not sit comfortable in front of my screen without glasses yet.
The -2.25 are my daily driver if im outside my room.

Now for my progress:
Wearing my old glasses at -2.75 is uncomfortable as i have the feeling they are at this point to strong for me.
After 4 months of wearing -2.25 only for outside and at work, looking at a company sign outside of my window that is pretty far away, I get flashes of clear vision after blinking several times. But it just does not last.
Those flashes of clear vision are also happening without any glasses looking into the distance but they are rare.

Now having those moments of clear vision are somewhat encouraging but im certainly nowhere near being able to reduce my lenses further as the clear vision doesnt stick around.

I hope someone can offer advice on how to proceed.
Should I just continue with those clear vision flashes until they "stick" or is there something more to it that might improve recovery?

In this video (at the end of it) says about an experiment with lenses in chicks. When a lens depraved the eye from focusing far away the eye became myopic. But with the exact same conditions, when there was sun-like light the degree of myopia was less.

In the above video it is also mentioned about the short distance vision (for example using smart phones as a child) and this causing myopia.

So when seeing far when outdoors (like Jake regularly suggests) we are doing good for our myopia but when there is also sun outdoors the results must be better.

I started sunning again and my vision the following days I do sunning is sharper.,1147.msg8903.html#msg8903

I have tried a natural antioxidant astaxanthin for my eye floaters. 180 softgel capsules of 12mg. Zero results for me.

I have been making my own bread.   I buy wheat berries and grind them into flour.    I mix Einkorn wheat with Hard Red.    It really seems that the Einkorn has had a long slow improvement in my eyesight.

Todd - was successful.  Why - because he looked at his own Snellen, and wore a plus.  I see endless over-prescriptions.

I finally "gave up" on any OD actually helping me to go from 20/50 to 20/20,  (refraction -1.0 diopters to +1/2 diopter).
So here are the test lenses that I use to measure my refraction.   
I am at 20/20, not because any OD would help - but because I make my own measurements. 
Remember - by doing this - you become an expert.  This is not medicine - but self-protecting common scientific sense.
I get my lenses from - they are good quality. 
Dear pure-prevention friends,
There are indeed, legal reasons, for the dead silence when you ask any question about "recovery" from 20/50.  Here is a video explaining why they seem so, "dumb" to me about Todd's success.

Todd was successful.  Why?  Because he had the "smarts" to by-pass the crazy self-defense attitude as it exists in medicine.
In fact, at 20/40 (self measured -1 diopter) the problem is coming exclusively from the child's nose-on-page habit.  There is no other reason for that first, "negative state" for our totally normal eyes.

I am typing this, reading an writing though a +2.5 diopter.  This is to protect my confirmed 20/20 vision on my Snellen.
I do not advocate that anyone attempt to do this - unless he can confirm 20/50 on his own Snellen.
But you must understand - why no one medical, will not help you.
