Wednesday: 10/200 to 10/40 (palming)
Tuesday: Test for new distance glasses, 10/20 with a few letters on the 15 line; Test for new close work glasses, 10/40 (I read half of the letters on that line)
Close Work Pair:
I got my new glasses in the mail today, and they are the exact strengths I estimated for them. 😀 The distance pair lets me see about 20/40 and the close work pair lets me see about 20/80. I’ve already used the distance pair for some driving earlier today, and the close pair is working fine for the computer now. I’m glad that my eyes will have to relax more for me to see clearly through them. 🙂
I’m still working on the same habits from my last post, which I’ve realized are a lot like Quackenbush’s three recommended habits: sketch, breath, and blink. I’ve been working on breathing fully and blinking frequently also, so I’m more closely following Quackenbush. However, I’m also closing my eyes and relaxing a few times an hour.
I’ve been working on improving my vision for a while, and based on this experience I seem to think that the requirements are pretty simple. I would list the five conditions needed for a permanent improvement in one’s vision as: being overall relaxed mentally and physically, practicing Quackenbush’s three habits (sketch, breathe, blink), wearing no glasses or reducing the strength of one’s glasses over time, practicing with the Snellen chart each day, and being patient. As long as you meet these conditions, I’m sure your vision will improve in time. 🙂
