The theory fits my case so I think you’re on to something.
I’m 38 and from age 24 to age 35 I basically spent 12-14 hours a day in a poorly lit room wearing full correction in front of the computer. Software development during the day, video games and internet browsing during the evenings. The only outdoor time were a little bit of running or biking. I wonder if that massive amount of strain for a decade caused some eye adaptation, which is why I now consistently get worse vision from outdoor time.
It’s very temporary though. DTB is back to normal after 15-20 minutes. I’ve measured DTB a couple of times after getting back inside and it improved steadily by 1cm every 5 minutes. So if I lost 4cm after a 1 hour walk, I’d be back to pre-walk DTB after 20 minutes.

Thanks for the video chat offer, I really appreciate it, we’ll see where I’m at in a month.

3 months after adding both more SPH and more CYL to my eyeglass melange to combat ghosting my conclusions are:
– Adding CYL was a good idea. Keeping that for now and reducing gradually later.
– Adding SPH was not. Lost 10-15% DTB even though I improved my outdoortime and general habbits.
So then I know that stronger glasses is not the solution to the ghosting. I also know from before that just keeping everything stable is not the solution, as I wore -1.75 for 6.5 months with no improvement, so now I’m looking at strain reduction.

It’s early but a week after I introduced screen free evenings there’s been a few of positive developments. Morning DTB measurement have improved the last few days. The range of ghosting have shrunk. More stable now.
And a big one: After losing DTB since january I decided to drop 0.25 SPH a few days ago to turn the trend around. Every single time I’ve dropped SPH in the past ghosting has gotten worse but not this time. Very motivating!
