How my eyes feel

Well, I haven’t posted in a while because of finals at school, but I am all done with them for this semester.  I also haven’t been doing much structured vision practice, yet I have been doing little things throughout the day as I am able.  I would take off my glasses when not needed, I would try to keep blinking, breathing fully, and moving my eyes, and I would just try to stay overall relaxed (physically and mentally).  I’ve started doing Sorrisi’s book club lessons, and I will definitely be more involved in them now since school is over.   I like the book club because it will allow me and others to learn from each other what Bates wanted people to know about how their eyes work.

An additional practice I have been using occasionally is noticing how my eyes feel when my vision is clearer as compared to when it is blurrier.  I got this idea from Sorrisi who wrote about it in a comment somewhere.  Anyway, when my eyesight is clearer, my eyes feel more spherical, flexible, and soft.  However, when my vision is blurry, and I am aware of my eyes, my eyes feel more ellipsoidal (a 3-D oval) and rigid.  When I am using this form of awareness and my vision is blurry, I try to locate places around my eyes or body that are tensed; I then try to let them relax.  Furthermore, I do this practice with the focus on how my eyes/body feels and not how clear my vision is.  This practice seems to keep me using good vision habits, which lead to clearer vision.

I hope to improve my vision at a faster rate now that it is summer and I’m not stressed out about school assignments.

    Hope you are doing well, and looking forward to seeing you post. I’ve been reading Nancy’s blog a lot and commenting, also Sorrisi’s, but since Irelands Eyes and Sassy no longer blog, I feel like there’s a lack of vision bloggers. I hope that some new people are introduced and that the current ones blog a lot, I learn a lot from the community!
