Ted's vision blog
#29
Ok, time for an update.

The other day, I dunno how it happened, but I got tired of forcing my eyes around so I decided that I was just gonna stare, I didn't WANT to shift so much. so I started getting an idea: I was just gonna sit there, staring at some text or a letter on the computer screen, and just sit and wait for my eyes to shift, or my eyes to blink. I was tired and fed up with trying all these methods. I was tired and annoyed because it seemed like just about every shift I do seems to be forceful.

I dedicated my self to the idea that I could sit and stare at one spot, and not blink, and that it would be alright. What's the worst that's gonna happen? My vision gets a little worse? Well that really aint so bad, and at least I'll see SOME change in my sight. So I stuck with it. Beyond everything that has been said about staring and blinking it seems that this should have made my eyes worse. I'm thinking either I am very much misunderstanding the concept of staring or that I actually DID make my vision worse, noticed what I was doing was wrong, and went about somehow correcting it and thus seeing an improvement. In any case, I have noticed improved vision.

I think it is really good to be able to change your vision. Say your looking at the eye chart at something fairly blurry. It can be an okay thing if you find out that something is making it worse. You know then, that there is some sensation within you, or thought, or whatever, that has blurred the letter. I think this is where it takes some patience and you have to stay in that moment, looking at that letter for a while, until you start to get an understanding about waht you are doing that is causing the letter to blur (or to clear).

This feeling of "accepting the blur" seems kind of similar to that feeling when some mucous gets on your cornea and makes things cloudy for a second. But in this case, there is no cloudiness, it's just the blur, but you still feel the need to blink hard. Instead of doing that, just do nothing, and see what happens.

All of this is very similar to the very first time that I proved to myself that my vision could improve. I had heard about Bate's saying that consciously making your vision worse by staring at a point could actually be beneficial, so I tried it. I looked at the tiniest point on a letter of a book that I could, and committed myself to not shifting whatsoever and not blinking whatsoever. I was never able to hold out for longer than, I dunno, 30 seconds maybe. But I kept trying over and over again. and out of the blue, things cleared up every now and then. And I was seeing fluctuations in the clarity of the letter. It was really assuring just to see a change in vision whatsoever.


I should mention a big difference between how I did it in the past, and how I am doing it now. In the past, I noticed that I would start holding my breath while doing this, now I let myself breath normally. I would also TRY to lock my gaze on the one tiny spot (i.e. not LET it shift). Now I just sit there and look at it, waiting for my eyes to move. If they do move, I take note of it, and try and get a sense of: did that feel easy? Did I actually want to look there or was I forcing that shift? That blink, did I plan that one out, or did it just happen out of necessity? I think this is getting very deep down to some programming and very subtle habits of mine. Like every shift means something. Why did you just shift there? Were you actually interested in looking at it, or were you just "checking" your eyesight on it?

Now I have read about the fact that people with normal sight shift 70 times a second, and that shifting should be fast, easy, and continuous. What I'm thinking is that while I am actually trying this technique, I am doing the micro-saccades thing. Meaning, I am still shifting around that tiny point, it's just that I'm not aware of those shifts, my focus being on noticing the quality of those larger shifts or blinks, whenever they happen.

====================

Oh yeah, and some quick notes and words I jotted down discussing effortless action.

No effort, but there's still movement.
Nothing that leads to increased, chronic body stress or a headache
Without hesitation, without the shift being too fast, though.
It isn't work, and it doesn't hurt.
Doesn't cause nausea, discomfort, tiredness
Not something you have to remind yourself of?
It is not laziness.
It's like dancing. You are moving but it's fun. If you think about it too much, then you get tense and it's no fun.
Not stopping natural pulls, and tendencies.
You could say the perfect vision is the color black. And that any effort is a color. So good vision is the "absence" of color, or effort. Just an analogy.
Doesn't mean that no energy is used, but that no excess energy is used. And you aren't getting in the way mentally.
There are degrees of effortlessness. It's not like an all or nothing type deal.
Like walking normally, naturally, then all of sudden thinking about how you walk, and it gets awkward and unnatural.
You can't calculate each shift of the eye.
