The Habit-Based Formula For Improving Vision
Technically speaking reversing myopia is simple. Reduce strain, add positive stimulus. The proverbial devil though, in the details. This course will introduce all the puzzle pieces in the right order. Just follow the simple 20 minute sessions, start seeing vision gains in a matter of weeks.
No Research Required
Want just the steps? No lengthy biology lessons, no clinical study reviews, just the bits that actually reduce myopia? This, is it.
At Your Own Pace
A new session loads into your account every day. You can do two a week though, or three, or however few (or many) you like. It always works!
Jump Right In
Jake says, "don't monkey with diopters". Well in this course, we'll skip the monkey and just get right into what you want to change, when, and how.
This course is the only way to get direct feedback from Jake himself. He is in the support forum daily, answering every member question.
What People Are Saying About BackTo20/20
If there's one thing most people know about endmyopia, it is the sheer volume of positive feedback, reviews, participant podcast episodes, progress updates in the Facebook group, the forum, and participant videos on YouTube. While it's wise to question any and all potential Internet unicorn farming, the success story volume of Jake's approach can't be ignored.
How BackTo20/20 Works
The program is set up as a personalized online course. You log into your account, and new sessions will be loaded for you. This way you get exactly what you need, and when you need it. Nothing more, and nothing less.
Use stimulus and strain knowledge to beat myopia.
You already know that glasses aren’t the answer, and that myopia is part strain, part lens-induced. I won’t get into all that again, here.
But what about the alternatives? Eye exercises are nonsense. Bates doesn’t apply to modern lens-induced myopia. Vitamins might make your eye lashes silky smooth, but they won’t fix the eyeball’s axial length or relax your focusing muscle.
here are a few who focus on the glasses. Which, that’s the right start (for amateurs).
But they’re still wrong.
Your eyesight happens where? In your eyes?
No. Your eyesight happens in your visual cortex. It happens in your BRAIN. And even the part of your eyeball that’s receiving the focused beam of light, the retina, is actually not part of the eye – it is part of the brain.
It’s true. Biology fact. Retina, connected by the optic nerve to the cortex, is part of the brain.
So while some guys are obsessing about plus lens therapy or not wearing glasses, they’re still entirely missing the point. The point which is, we have to talk to your brain, your visual cortex, about the problem you’re having.
The problem in part created by glasses, and now fully obscured from the brain by the glasses.
We will deal a lot with diopters, no question. But while some do what seems the same as I do and still get only marginal results, my clients (that’s you, shortly) get real, tangible improvements. Because we (you) get it. Diopters, stimulus, the whole lot of what we’ll cover in the sessions, targets your visual cortex first, and your eyeball second.
I’m the eye guru, lacking a lot of false modesty, because I understand the real problem. I’ll earn the title by teaching it all to you, in simple 20 minute sessions, and leading you to action and better eyesight.
And if I’m wrong? Send a quick e-mail to the impartial, not-ruled-by-me refunds department, and they’ll send you your money back. No questions.
But I’m not wrong. 😉
20 Minutes To Success
We covered that not many out there know what they’re talking about.
But even if they did, they still wouldn’t get you to better eyesight. Why? Because every one of the (rather few) insightful avenues I ever found, totally forget that .. you also have a life.
You’re not going to quit your job and move up to Jake’s misty mountain top eye retreat ashram. Really, speaking long term, you aren’t even going to spend 10 minutes a day, three months from now, doing an exercise.
That’s why they’d all fail regardless. One has to not just understand the eye, and how to change it, but also how to change the people who have those eyeballs in their heads. (that’s you)
BackTo20/20 assumes that you don’t have time to spare.
I assume that you’ll take 20 minutes to learn for a while, while it’s all new and exciting. I assume that after that time (many many months of testing narrowed that time to about 8 weeks for most people), you’ll probably get distracted by all the other things going on in your life.
So here’s what I did. I know I have an approximate eight week window (give or take, some take it slower and make up for it with a longer attention span).
In that eight weeks I’m going to teach you what I learned in about 620 weeks (or over 10,000 hours, but who’s counting .. and that’s not actually counting the years since, learning from participant experiences, and also the eight months tweaking the program itself).
I’m going to put into eight weeks, in simple 20 minute sessions, a real “guru-level” of insight for you.
But enough with the promises.
The First 30 Sessions
Your problem, the one that isn’t going to go away, is your eyes staring at screens, better part of every day.
Fixing your eyesight, considering that we can’t remove the root cause of it, would seem basically impossible. It’s like you saying “hey Jake, I’m going to keep eating pizza, get me in shape.”
Because it’s such an involved bit of magic (fixing a problem without fixing the problem), we dedicate the better part of 30 sessions to it. You have to absolutely be able to look at screens all day, without your eyes getting worse. And actually, which now verges on the absurd, you want your eyes to get BETTER, while exposed to the problem.
I’ve got all that for you. Yes, keep your office job. Look at screens all day. I’ll still get you better eyesight.
How do we do it?
I’m not going to preach. I’ll teach you things, instead. The what’s, and the why’s. And the how’s. Remember the measurement e-mails? A bit like that. A real, simple, tangible activity, and then ways you will use that to start working your eyes around the strain.
There are guys out there who desperate try to copy the @endmyopia method. You may have read about “plus lens therapy”. Like a monkey stealing your car.
Rather than just beating tools onto rocks, I’ll show the real meaning of things like plus lenses. How focal plane creates the wrong, or the right kind of stimulus. How you test what you need, how you do it, and then how you quantify whether it’s working.
And we’ll always come back around to what really matters. How all these things affect your visual cortex, the brain behind the curtain, pulling all the strings. How we’ll give the right sort of inputs so that your brain makes the right kinds of decisions.
Did you know that your minus lenses completely surpassed the feedback loop that would tell you about eye strain?
All you’ve got left right now is random headaches and neck pain, and dry eyes.
It’s a gag, those glasses you’re wearing. We’ll fix it all, and then you’ll look back and think “gee, this was really all rather simple.” Which makes me less amazing in your future hindsight. Just remember though, part of the whole genius of this is that I not only make it look easy, but I make it be easy (for you).
In 30 sessions you’ll never have to worry about a higher diopter number again.
But we’re just getting started.
The Next 30 Sessions
The second 30 sessions are all about what you will do, when you no longer have to worry about close-up destroying your eyesight.
By that time you should consider yourself a “guru in training”. It’s all really obvious by now, I’m just filling in the blanks.
We’ll talk a lot about distance vision. How distance vision is the tool to create the stimulus that tells your visual cortex that you need those eyes to provide more distance focus ability. That your eyeballs are possibly too long, and need some axial change.
You won’t just be reading. You’ll experience these things.
You’ll notice double vision, multiple clear images, where before there was only blur. You’ll actually witness your brain adjusting along with your eyes, and having to “recalibrate” your vision. It’s going to be, quite possibly, one of the more amazing experience you’ll have (if you appreciate your body, and pay attention to your senses).
The ballgame will change completely, as you start to use your glasses as a crutch, as a tool to induce stimulus, to get you just enough and make your eyes work for the rest.
And yes, you’ll realize it’s all so shockingly simple, and I’ll have to fend for you to keep giving me some credit. I’ll have to remind you that you came here some months ago (as in, today), and you didn’t know the first thing. You trusted the optometrist, and you believed that your eyes were broken. You were resigned to a life behind glasses.
Everything seems easy in hindsight, easy after you conquered the beast (or just the optometrist).
And you know … sometimes readers give me a hard time about all the 20/20 gains reports I post on endmyopia.
We have thousands and thousands of improvement reports, all the way from high diopter myopia with significant reductions, to low myopia and completed 20/20 results. I’m immensely proud of all participants and every single report tells a personal story of victory, success, taking action, overcoming skepticism and inertia and excuses and procrastination.
I share a few of them with you here to help you get excited. Barely scratching the surface of course, but just think … how cool will it be to add your own success story to the site?
Priceless! (or well … rather there is a price tag if we count my support and this program, but that makes it still aaalmost priceless)
Even More Sessions
I am still adding things from time to time, to this day. Things you’ll want to try out, things that may keep you motivated. Things that you, the future expert, will be able to make sense of, and experiment with.
For example, I’ve got this somewhat mind blowing activity you HAVE TO experience. It only works at dusk, it only works once you did all the other things, and it works best if you have dusk, and neon lit signs. And it works best if you already had at least two diopter reductions successfully completed.
That’s why it’s in the “extra” sessions, since .. yes, that’s a bit of a specific scenario.
But in that scenario, after you did all sorts of work already, been improving your eyesight, you might be able to get as much as a full diopter of better vision. As in instantly, in a matter of 30 minutes, your eyes “snap” into a whole diopter better vision.
Not fair to bring that up now. All I’m saying is .. this is a whole lot more than just some “Internet course”. This is proper awesome-level stuff.
And remember, it’s all about habit changes. And I’m here to support you all along the way, one reduction at a time.
Your Personal Eye Guru, Jake Steiner.
Jake will be the first to tell you that he's no guru. Or expert. Or an authority based on some title or institution.
What Jake will bring is 20 year of hands on experience helping individuals just like yourself, get back control over your own eyesight. This is all hard earned trial and error spanning many years and many thousands of myopes all over the world.
This Course Is About A Structured Approach - With Support Included.
This program is one of the very few things out there that you can buy, which include personal support from its actual creator. How many book authors can you contact for help? How many Internet 'authorities' will answer your personal questions?
Almost none. Jake though likes actively involved in your success. You have questions, Jake will answer.
In Jake's own words, about the course:
All the program sessions are on a timer. You can’t skip ahead.
Sure, I could put it all in a book. In fact, I’ve done that. You know what?
A bit part of what you are getting here isn’t just the “what”. This only works if you apply it all, if you make new habits, if you do all the things, in order, at the right time. Trust me on this, there is so, so much failure, without the correct approach. I’ve seen tons of it, back when I tried to make it a book-format. Worst thing ever.
But do it right, it’s easy. The timer, simple as it is now, was a total revelation in better therapy.
But also, I’m not putting this up and then going on forever-vacation. Nice as it would be.
You’re going to have questions. You can see the support forum on the site now, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg of support I give on a daily basis. Once you complete the sign-up on this page, you can read all the support forum threads (nice!).
I give you the keys, with your membership. Drop in on the forum any time. Mi casa, su casa. Ask me whenever you get stuck.
That all by itself is a huge value.
You can also get the proper guru level membership, and see me in-person. I’m not hiding (I’m just a tad expensive, and overbooked). But if you don’t want to spend that much money, the forum gets you Jake-time just as well.
Quick Note: We have participants from more than 25 countries. We keep things in English here, to keep my brain from getting fried. I can speak five languages fairly fluently, and muddle my way through another four. In some very specific cases I’ll help in languages other than English, if need be.
I also keep the group small and manageable. No more than 8 invites per month, going for quality and a sense of community, rather than huge numbers.
And think of this, truly. How many pioneers in any field can you personally ask for help?
And sure, I’m not super special. I refer to myself as the librarian, basically the one collecting these thousands of experiences, tweaking the approach, applying feedback and best practices. But usually guys in this position write a book, or put out some course, but they usually definitely don’t stand behind their ‘product’ with real one-on-one support.
Seriously. Which of your favorite authors or creators can you message right now, today, and have a detailed answer from, by tomorrow?
This isn’t some sales pitch. I don’t even know how much longer I’ll be doing this, the personal support part. At some point I’ll let advanced students do it, or maybe just have students rely on course materials only. It takes so much time out of my day, every day (7 days a week, no holidays). I love to be involved for now but for sure the day will come when people say, “hey remember back when you could just contact Jake directly for definitive answers?”.
That day is coming. For now and if you’re serious about eyeballs, take me up on this offer.
What To Expect From BackTo20/20
Initial results vary widely.
It depends on your myopia degree, lens use, age, and many more factors. Many of my clients though get about 20% diopter reduction in the first 90 days, and about 0.75 diopters per year thereafter.
It doesn’t take much effort at all to maintain ongoing improvement.
First you improve quickly as you fix potential dangerous overprescription by your optometrist, and resolve the ciliary muscle spasm you are experiencing right now. That’s a great first step.
Then improvement continues more gradually. The biology has to change, much of our myopia is part of a slow physiological change that happened over many, many years. To reverse axial elongation and other factors, time plays a role.

The Definitive Guarantee (60 Days Money Back)
The Internet program consultant guy says, I have to have a guarantee, and I have to assume all the risk.
I didn’t like that answer. I’m neurotic and cautious too. What’s to stop you from running off with my 10,000 hours of work, my time maintaining this site, and answering your questions in the forum?
Turns out, nothing is going to stop you. Here’s why:
I made refunds the job of our site admin minion. Part-time guy doesn’t talk to me before processing a refund. You just send an e-mail to [email protected] with your Paypal confirmation number (or credit card e-mail confirmation), and he processes the refund. He’s here every day for 4 hours (except Sundays, that slacker), so at most it’ll take a day or two to get your money back. I won’t even know about it.
Or you know, just e-mail me. Equally fine to just let me know directly.
So there you have it. Risk, on me.
But pesky Internet consultant said it’s not enough. A real skeptic will be stroking his or her chin, still not convinced.
Seriously, you guys.
So, more risk on my part. You can take my whole, entire eight weeks of sessions, ask eight hundred questions in the forum, and then up to 60 days later .. you can still get a full refund, walk out with all your money. This time you do have to e-mail me though (we’ve got to be at least a little bit fair), show me your forum posts, and that you haven’t made progress.
Hey, you could easily make things up, if you wanted. Me the skeptic says, this makes it pretty easy for just about anybody to get my whole program for nothing.
And you could. I’m relying on your appreciation of the process to not stiff me on the bill.
So there, I’m assuming all the risk. That won’t be your excuse for letting your eyes continue to suffer. 😉
** Update **: Since many people ask me this in e-mails, a quick note on the 60 day refund policy window timing, specifically.
In the first 60 days you’re meant to experience:
- Two diopter reductions (one for close-up, one for distance)
- A measurable increase in close-up distance vision (via centimeter measurement)
- A measurable increase in distance vision (via Snellen eye chart)
Of course your journey isn’t complete in 60 days. But by that time you’ll know whether the program is working for you, and I know whether we work well together. If you don’t have two reduced diopter lenses and measurable improvements in vision in around 60 days, I shouldn’t have your money anyway.
Though not seeing all those improvement milestones very, very rarely happens. Even so, want you to feel reasonably assured that I am taking all the steps to ensure your wellbeing and fairness in everything we do here, together.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does BackTo20/20 Take?
There are currently 70 sessions in the program. We continue to expand and add more material, but all you need is in those 70 sessions. The first 30 sessions cover all of the close-up and eye strain topics, as well as close-up glasses and various related topics. After that we get into distance vision, more stimulus, and many of the advanced subjects.
Do I Have To Use Paypal?
You can, you can even use credit cards with Paypal, but you don’t have to. You can also use our regular encrypted payment gateway, straight with any VISA or MasterCard, and you can even pay with Bitcoins if you want. Like pirates, arrr!
Do You Guarantee Progress?
Yes. Show me you participate, and I offer a 60 day refund guarantee if you aren’t seeing results. The first 30 days is no questions asked, just e-mail [email protected]
Does BackTo20/20 Work For Children?
We have a separate add-on option for young children. We do recommend that you have a myopic adult in the immediate family take the adult course first, to gain a first hand understanding of the process. This will make working with your child’s eyes much more effective. And of course we provide tailored support to help you with child myopia related questions, in the support forum.
How Long Can I Use The Support Forum?
Support access is available for either 2 years, or lifetime - depending on the course option you purchase.
What Else Do I Need To Buy?
Most of what you need is knowledge. Beyond that, measuring tools are just a print out or a few dollars. You will likely want reduced diopters to protect your eyes and get the opportunity for positive stimulus – we don’t sell these, but you can buy them inexpensively online, or from your local optician. Search the blog for lots more on the subject of lens purchases, or post your questions in the forum!
A year from now you'll be a year older.
Are you going to still be squinting at your screen, the usual headaches and diopter increases?
Or will you look back, proud of yourself for your decision to have started getting those eyeballs back to lens-free?
