I’ve been so busy with school, my wedding, and starting off my marriage that I haven’t posted in about two months. I haven’t been doing much planned vision improvement practice, but I still feel that my vision has not significantly diminished. However, I’ve practiced awareness of central fixation from time to time when my glasses were off.
I would focus on seeing the smallest area possible as Nancy is doing; this seemed beneficial for me also. However, one thing I noticed is that I would become frustrated from not seeing the entire word or object clearly. I know this is where shifting should come in, but I did not want to actively move my eyes. I think that what is needed is just a deeper level of mental relaxation: I’ve gotten to the level where I can see a small point fairly clearly, but I need to go to an even lower level of relaxation to allow my eyes to shift their gaze automatically.
Now that things have settled down a little bit, I’ll be working on attaining that deeper level of mental central fixation so that I’ll shift and see the entire object clearly (in my mind). I need to practice this as often as possible so that it becomes a visual habit for me.
