Negative thoughts

You can try one thing, which helped me a lot:
Try to anylize your "interence", especially the "motivation" in your doing whatever you do.

This way I found out, that I let myself be motivated by the negative feeling the blur evokes in me and the negative thoughts about it - that is, my mind concentrated on the thing, I wanted to overcome. And if you concentrate on one thing, you just can't let it go.

Whereas the "way out" concentrates mentally on the goal, the goal becomes so important, that "all the rest" just doesnt matter any more. Then the mind becomes "free" to concentrate without having to struggle against a resistence, as Bates put it:

Quote:One part of an object is seen best only when the mind is content to see the greater part of it indistinctly and as the degree of relaxation increases the area of the part seen worse increases, until that seen best becomes merely a point.

Try to "formulate" your goal in a different way, for example: "I seek relaxation for my strained eyes in the way I look at things. This is achieved by concentrating mentally on a period as small as possible, I just don't care about all the "rest" . When I look at objects with a mind concentrated in this way, my concentration can be directed to very small points and my eyes will relax more and more, so that they (in the end) become free to "follow the mind's desire" without being hindered by strain."
This is a bit long, maybe you can put it in a shorter form for your practice.
