At this point in my vision improvement journey, I’ve learned all the basic principles of reaching and maintaining clear vision. This does not mean that I will stop educating myself about the topic, as I can still learn helpful techniques and read motivating stories. However, the basic principles of perfect sight will remain pretty much the same regardless of which new techniques I learn.
Therefore, the best thing I can do now for my vision is to put my knowledge of the principles and techniques into daily practice. I have been wearing glasses or contacts for about a decade, so it seems reasonable to me that it will just take some time for my visual system to heal back to its previous clear state. I’ve already improved my vision a good deal from its worst point, but it will take some time to reach the level of mostly 20/10 visual acuity. I know this process would be quicker if I had a Bates teacher to guide and motivate me, but right now I just have myself and the online vision improvement community to support my efforts. I would like in the future to attend a vision seminar or take a lesson from a vision teacher since I am so interested in the topic; this would be true even if I had already regained clear vision.
What I’ll be working on daily now is three main things: 1. Wear my glasses as little as possible. 2. Try to be relaxed mentally and physically all day long. 3. Learn and practice new/known techniques either with the Snellen chart or objects in order to provide extra relief of mental strain.
I want to wish everyone good luck in the vision improvement community! You’re all in my thoughts and prayers. 🙂
