Otis sir ,yes it could be a combination of both over prescription and myeyesight  improvement.
I remember on december 1st i couldn't see the 20/200line on the snellen.
I guess I've been lucky to witness massive improvements in 2 months.

I cross checked with my sister. She is a -4 myope too and when i asked her to read the snellen hung outdoors she couldn't read  the 20/200 .

Thank you Todd sir and Otis sir

Today morning ,(infact every morning since a week,)  i can see 20/30, outdoors in bright light.
I can also make out some letters of 20/20  if i squint a little.

hi,
I'm interested in knowing how much your diopter  has improved from -4.5 objectively. I'm also at -4.5 according to the eye reading device at the optometrist. :)

Thanks, gonna watch it later.

I don't believe they over prescribe in my country, but they  give what you need to get at 0 diopter (with glasses on).

Hi Kuber,
Congratulations.  Personally, I take EXCEEDING the 20/40 line as a success - but I do mean naked-eye in bright light.

Could you clarify one point.  Is this naked eye vision, BOTH EYES OPEN? 

Thanks,

I dont want to go to the optometrists so soon. I am damn sure they will over prescribe me and try to tell me all my improvement is rubbish.

but they can measure your refractive error (for free)  so you can see what lenses you'd need now, they wouldn't force you to buy glasses

A measurement by an optometrist is free, he probably knows he has -4.5 this way

OD's are professional doctors, they aren't free, optometrists sell glasses and will measure your momentary vision for free, they prescribe the diopter to result at a zero diopter, focal point on the retina when the ciliary is relaxed, which is over prescription, better than 20/20, but accurate and objective  nonetheless.

Kuber probably knows he has -4.5 because an optometrist measured it for him.

Wow, thanks for calling me an idiot lol.

In the topic title he states he has or had -4.5, how does he know? Not from snellen, that's for sure. I only say find out the current diopter the way he found out he had -4.5, probably for free at an optometrist, like he suggested in another post,  for objective numbers.
I had mine tested last week for free at a random optometrist  and didn't have to buy anything. Yes they over prescribed when I could try what they have measured, everything was crisp, complete  overkill.
20/30 and even 20/20 doesn't mean the diopter in the eyes is 0.
Jake also emphasizes the importance of measuring your diopter, only not at the optometrist but with a measuring tape.

No Wheelie, I called you an optometrist, or optometrist follower.

Why not be honest with your connections and interest - for all of us? Are you attempting to destroy the concept of prevention,
for your own private reasons?  Why not be honest about it. Why not USE YOUR REAL NAME??

Does Jake have you nailed in this video discussion of you?

Ultimately true-prevention is going to conflict with traditional (minus over-prescription) optometry practice.
