Rehabilitation / Re: Astigmatism from print pushing!!!
« Last post by connrrr on March 02, 2021, 01:13:09 PM »
Since doing pulling focus in shopping malls my left eye has improved to -0.5 (last time I posted it was between -0.75 and -1).
My right eye has improved  as much as my left eye but that eye until recently had to contend with (severe) astigmatism, in other words my right eye can see all the way to -0.5 (even -0.25 at times) but the letters are seen in duplicate or triplicate or let's just say whatever crap astigmatism can come up with to spoil the image my right is able to produce.  Not satisfactory at all to say the least. So in a desperate effort to improve my right eye I tried print-pushing on only my right eye again but once more proving that this method worsens the astigmatism... This is not because of using plus lenses - I use plus lenses for near work - but the effort of trying to see beyond the blur horizon with plus lenses. Again I think print-pushing is a tool to combat moderate/high myopia but once your eyes enter the zero to -1 realm it's not that great a tool anymore.

I'm never going to get a reply because this forum is dead, but I'm going through this right now myself.

I discovered endmyopia.org and Todd Becker in December 2018 and very soon after adopted the plus lens method. I used it maybe too much, and without giving my eyes proper rest, because sometime in the summer that followed I developed red-eye and I don't know if my astigmatism got worse but it definitely became more obvious to me.

I'm so conflicted because even Todd mentions double images and fusing them in his Ancestry Foundation talk. When I found all this talk of active focussing and reduced lenses and plus lenses I had just been prescribed -0.75/-1.25 sph and -0.25/-0.5 cyl (od/os) and have my latest eye exam scheduled for the end of the month.

I have a theory that astigmatism increases after a person has maxxed out their myopic vision improvement through traditional means like plus lenses and or looking into the distance.

ZenniOptical was the place I ordered glasses from without a prescription.  Don't know if they still allow that though.

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.

Rehabilitation / Started 6 months ago, meagre progress

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.

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.
