Yelaina's Diary - Newbie

I am posting the reason of why I asked here because:

1. I don't want to influence the answers on that page. And if you read this and want to reply there, please reply honestly. I want honest replies of what people see with old glasses, or what never-worn-glasses peoples see, and the diopters, because I think the difference between old and new diopters may matter.

2. I started asking the question in reaction to what I did on Jan 16, 2015.

The Reason why I Asked:
I kept my glasses off for over 6-8 hours on Jan 16 (clipped to the back of my shirt so that I know I can have it if I really need it, and to remind me to sit in a better position if I slouched.) And I did the swinging as described in the video link in Part 6: of David's Method.
http://www.iblindness.org/davids-method/...al-vision/
(the video was helpful, I think it was the first time I got a sense of how to do it properly. ~ or at least I think i am trying it properly now.)

After ~45 min of doing The Long Swing, 15 minutes later,
I putted my glasses back on and walked through a supermarket.
I looked past 2 aisle length, and I can see very sharp colours of the dairy containers.
It kind of felt too strong. It also felt a little tiring looking through it, i can feel the weight of the glasses, and trying to wrestle tension on my face, after a day of no glasses.

But what puzzled me is that, I know from people who had never had glasses and when they looked though mines, they said it was blurry.
If the eyes are improving shouldn't we eventually see blurry through the old glasses?

Or have we adapted to knowing how to use strong glasses and the moment we put it on we can quickly accomodate back to our old bad habits? While those people who have never worn glasses, simply do not know how to look through a pair of glasses, especially those of stronger strength glasses?

Yelaina - interesting question. Remember this, though - you probably don't want to remember. It reminds me of the Bates mantra - forget your failures, remember your successes. The mind is a powerful thing, and memory is so closely allied with vision. Myopes have to condition themselves to ignore the uncomfortableness, pain, irritation of straining to see through corrective lenses. 'Get used to them' as it is often said. Call it a neurological imprint if you will, people condition themselves to the strain of wearing lenses for years, decades. People who have never worn lenses have never conditioned themselves to ignore it all, and as a result all their sensitivities are, well, super sensitive. Whenever Bates tested this out on emmetropes - to induce straining, it often produced unbearable pain. He found that the highest myopes were usually the least sensitive. They had to overcome and condition themselves to greater and greater amounts of strain to see through stronger and stronger lenses. It was a good sign when (normal) sensitivities started to return. Do they ever fully return, I don't know. I do know that the most insignificant things can irritate me, which when I wore lenses I didn't even consider. I believe you become much more in touch with your eyes, and how they are feeling the more you restore good seeing habits. But you may never completely severe those neurological connections which are made in the process of desensitizing yourself to strain. Keep overwriting them with good ones (or keep refreshing the existing good ones), and the destructive ones become so weak so as to become insignificant.

Forget your failures and remember your successes. I believe it's important to keep moving forward, always forward, and don't look back, if you desire to kick this thing entirely.
