Lately my vision seems to be clearer than in previous weeks. I haven’t been doing too much direct vision work, but when my glasses are off I see things clearer than I used to. The problem is that I’m wearing my glasses most of the day.
Both pairs of my glasses are reduced prescriptions (20/40 and 20/80), so they aren’t as harmful as full strength glasses from an optometrist. However, my eyes cannot relearn how to see clearly if the glasses are doing the work for them most of the day.
So, I’m going to make a conscious effort to wear my glasses as little as possible from now on. With the exception of emergency situations, I will only be wearing my glasses for driving, seeing the projector screens at school, and using the computer. The rest of the time, I do not really need to wear them. This effort will be a change because up to now, most of the time I’ve used my glasses to watch television, watch movies, go grocery shopping, and other things I can’t recall right now.
My eyes need a chance to work on their own for longer than the time in the morning before I drive to school and the last few minutes before I go to bed. This won’t only be a physical change, but it will also be a psychological struggle to resist putting on my glasses to see a little clearer.
I’m not at the point where I can completely go without glasses for the entire day, but I need to greatly minimize the times that I do wear them. Once I’ve persisted with this change for a few weeks or days, I’m sure my vision will become clearer at a faster rate than it is now. 🙂
