frequent clear flashes
« on: December 29, 2013, 08:07:04 AM »
I been getting very clear (perfect, 20/15+) flashes of vision very frequently But i have to blink abit forcibly to generate the clear flash. Does anyone else have this experience?  I don't know if im changing the shape of the eye by blinking or if something else is going on.

for those of you who had improved was it linear improvement or was it zig zag or did you also get lots of clear flashes?

I view a clear flash as an indication that something is happening.    In my case I have learnt how to create a clear flash with mixture blinking, relaxation, stretching, breathing and gazing with a conscious intention rather then anything forced.    I am also seeing that my vision is much sharper and can see more detail then I used too.

So view these as a positive sign but don't expect anything instant to happen.  Its a slow journey back.....

Hi Sam,

A "clear flash" is always a good indication that you are going to become more successful.  If you are wearing a plus lens (for all close work) and are seeing 20/30 to 20/25, you will, on blinking, begin to see the 20/20 and 20/18 line.

If you keep up with the wearing of the plus, and keep that Snellen on the wall - you will begin to see a more consistent 20/20 (be certain to read each letter).  I am pleased that Dr. Alex addressed this issue for us.

i also get double vision (like what alex fraunfeld explained it in the link) when i blink. Todd mentioned that its a sign future improvement. are you familiar with this?

its annoying that improvement is not linear and these weird things happen.
