  • Paul on The Problem with GlassesThis is such a very convincing argument from "Anon". πŸ™‚ Seriously though, this kind of weak criticism just goes to show how desperate some people are to find fault and reject the plain truth. Thanks for writing the article David...
  • Nancy on Yes, But I Have Astigmatism!Thanks Gwen! I appreciate your reading this, and especially that you commented. I sure wish I'd known this information decades ago, as I too thought astigmatism made me a special case (in addition to my very high myopia), so it...

  • Anon on The Problem with Glasses"Try wearing sunglasses on top of prescription glasses. Obviously, it doesn’t work" I guess you've never tried it then. I do it all the time and it works as expected. As soon as I go to this bit in your...
  • jeffry on Alternative Treatment for Retinal DetachmentI was prescribed Isosorbide Mononitrate due to angina pain. The doctor warned me that this medication can cause headaches, which it did. But my headaches were right at the back of the eyeballs. Right away I began seeing flashes of...
  • Sriram Govindarajan on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Thanks for the replies and for patiently replying to my multiple questions.i will work on all the things you have said and get back to you ma'am.
  • Nancy on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Sriram, when you see clearly, you are moving your gaze a tiny bit all the time to pick up a new "center", and paint the image in your brain in more and more detail. Trying to see a large area...
  • Sriram Govindarajan on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Hi ma'am thanks for the reply.i only have one final question.previously when my vision was normal I didn't notice this distinction between central and peripheral vision and I also didn't know that we could only see a small area since...
  • Nancy on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Hi again Sriram. I'm thinking you're trying too hard. The reason I suggested the Long Swing is to get you into an easy flowing movement where you're not trying to see anything, just noticing the environment slide by in front...
  • Sriram Govindarajan on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Hi Nancy.thanks for the response.but as you have mentioned in the article when I practice central fixation I am able to consciously see that I can see only a small area very clearly.that itself is actually making me to see...
  • Nancy on How Do I Practice Central Fixation?Hello Sriram. Central fixation should be easy and without effort, gently noticing without straining or trying to see, just inviting in the clarity as you move from point to point, seeing what you look at directly as the most clear....

  • Sandy on The Problem with GlassesAt age 22 if I did a lot of reading, I would have blurred distance vision. I did not have any eye exams, until I was 27 and then the optometrist gave me a prescription of +.75 for each eye,...
