I haven’t been doing too much different lately: I take off my glasses when they aren’t needed, I try to relax physically and mentally, I keep blinking and moving my eyes, I try to have good posture and breathe fully, etc. At this point in my vision journey I’ve made plenty of progress from where I started, but I still have a good amount of visual acuity to improve in order to see clearly without glasses. Unless I learn of some quickly effective technique or idea to clear up my vision, I think I just need to keep doing what I am already while reducing the amount of time I wear glasses.
Another thing that would obviously help is more motivation, but it’s hard to increase that right now when I know my glasses are only 2.00 Diopters less than my strongest glasses (with 4.00 Diopters left before I wouldn’t need any correction). I guess the optimistic (yet truthful) way to look at this would be to focus on how vision improvement doesn’t usually follow an even linear path. 🙂 I just wish I could discover/learn of a new idea or technique that would make the path more exponential. 😐 I already know Bates’ techniques and other relaxation techniques, so I’m sure I just need to make more time for practicing the techniques that are beneficial for me.
On another note, one thing I’ve noticed more lately (it’s been happening for a while) is that I’m more interested in my other senses (beside vision) when I’m not wearing my glasses. I’ve especially noticed this with my sense of touch as I like to feel the texture of new and familiar objects much more often now than I used to. I think this is because before, when I was wearing my glasses, I could see the details of objects and guess at their textures and shapes. Now, however, objects are not seen as clearly, so feeling them teaches me more about the textures and materials used in an object. I wouldn’t necessarily say that my senses other than vision are enhanced when I don’t wear glasses, but I just pay more attention to them. I wonder if other people who are improving their vision have noticed this same phenomenon. ❓
