    Hey Jake,

    Just wanted to ask a quick question, because I’ve reached the lesson on the small astigmatism exercise to start incorporating. Does it matter that I dropped the astigmatism correction in my normalized? Or should I still practice this exercise from time to time?

      It’s a good activity though if you have no ghosting you may not need it. 😉

      OK 🙂 I should probably know this by now, but what do you mean by ghosting?

      Double vision. Multiple mis-aligned images. 🙂

      Ah, OK. No, not that I’m aware of. I’ll pay more attention though, to see if I notice it. Also, this may sound really strange, but I’ve noticed a weird subconscious habit I’m developing. I have this desire to like tilt my head upwards and look through more of the lower part of my glasses (which somehow seems slightly clearer to me than when I look straight through them normally) when practicing active focus. Whether it’s outdoors or looking at my Snellen chart. I was worried at first that maybe there’s something wrong with my pair of normalized glasses; but it doesn’t seem to be the case. Have you ever heard of anyone experiencing this? Maybe it’s just some weird tick I have with this pair.

      It’s the case for all glasses. Due to how the optics work you actually get higher refractive index when looking at the lens periphery.

      Basically .. cheating. 😬

        Aha!! Wow, how did I not realize this after 20 years of wearing glasses?! Well, that is a relief to me to know it’s normal. But I must not cheat…so dang. Now the hard work continues lol. But it’s worth it.

        Thank you. I’ll touch base again soon with updates.
