hi,
One more question is that today I did print
pushing with naked eye and I felt discomfort
after 2 minutes
so I want to ask was I doing the right thing
and can the discomfort I felt make me more
myopic?

Please describe in detail what you did. Were you wearing any glasses or contacts? At what distance were you doing the print pushing?

hello

I was not wearing anythinh while print pushing
it was all naked eye
what I did was I read at the point where print started to get
blurry
I iread at the edge of blurr
and then read from a point which was more blurry
 and after 2 minutes I felt strong discomfort
so I want to ask was I doing the right thing
and can the discomfort I felt make me more
myopic?

hello everyone,
after going through many forums,blogs and websites i was very happy that there is still hope in myopic cases
but i am still confused about the degree i should use for reading plus glasses
i am -6.25(L) & -6.0(R)(SPHERICAL)
as Todd did,I have lowered my current prescription by .5D & .25 D
i will be receiving my new glasses of -5.75D(R) & -6.0D
and plus lenses of +4.5D (R) & 4.75D(L)
Is my calculation correct?(P.S correct me if i am wrong)
i will be using these glasses only for 1-2 hours perday and i will try to wear my prescribed one as less as possible
I will also get my secret to perfect vision by 21st march which i ordered on 10th march and i will be following the exercises daily
 i know that reversing even .5D is not a days or months work and this is no get yourself perfect vision in 30 days
it took a long time to get my eyes to get to this point
i also donot agree with steven on using a strong plus all day BECAUSE OUR GOAL IS TO HELP THE EYE TO ADAPT AND NOT TO FORCE
i I am using a snellen that tells me to stand at a distance of 40.6cms
i will be constantly checking for any improvements

thank you
saksham
