Ted's vision blog

Maybe overtime one can begin to feel when one needs to blink, instead of blinking slightly too much. And then maybe over an even longer period of time, it becomes more unconscious.

I dunno, does anyone have any other ideas?

Hi Ted,

I think you are correct, if it's just not happening on an unconscious level, as frequently as it should be, then consciously directing more blinks may be helpful, if not always for your vision, but also for the health and moisture level of the cornea. And I agree, better to err on the side of a little too many, than not enough. Just like shifting... and similar to shifting, think of making those blinks as light and effortless as possible. Myopes are adept at ignoring the subtle signals of uncomfortableness that signal the reflex to blink, or even to shift. So the signal may be there, but suppressed for one reason or another. As vision improves, so does the sensitivity of the nerves, and more normal levels of reflex blinking; but I think one can always slip back into ignoring the signals. Blinking should be a moment of rest, as Bates described, and it also causes a slight shift (downward and inward) and recovery/correctional shift(s), on an involuntary level. So they are very integral to avoiding the impulses to stare.
