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.
