Vision goes up and down
When communicating with people who are improving their vision a frequent question pops up;

1 - "Why do I experience much improvement in my vision, then it retreats back to a lower level of clarity? Not to the most unclear beginner level, but to a less clear level than most recent attainment?"

2 - "When I get a 'flash' of perfect visual clarity; after I blink; the clarity is lowered."

Answer #1; It is normal for the vision to fluctuate. People with perfect vision never have 20/20 and better sight all the time. It fluctuates, a natural healthy rhythm responding to the mind's state; emotions, thoughts. This includes diet, posture... Even when everything is running at optimum level, the vision fluctuates. It's natural. It is usually not noticed when the main clarity is at 20/20 and clearer level. It is noticed more when the vision needs improvement. Eyeglasses maintain the blur by locking a lower level of clarity into the eyes-vision, mind and eye muscles. Glasses prevent natural fluctuations; up, down and back to perfect clarity.

Let your vision move. Improve it to better than 20/20 and natural fluctuations won't be noticed, and; on a 'stressed out' day, will be minor.

Answer #2; The eye refocuses-re-adjusts the eyes' light rays when the eye 'vision' moves'; when the eyes shift to a new object or new part on a object. A normal temporary blur occurs during this time.
When the sight is clear and the mind-eyes, eye muscles are relaxed; the temporary blur is not seen because the eyes' shift is easy and fast, so the readjustment is fast. Saccades-shifts 70+ per second.

When the vision needs improvement; the mind, eye muscles need to relax. The level of tension will produce a certain level of blur when adjusting focus.
This also occurs when adjusting to a new distance.

Relax. Don't 'try' to see. Be patient; use the Bates Method. Avoid glasses. Let the eyes-vision be free and the temporary readjustment of light rays 'blur' will not be seen.
