    So, I have stopped on a new chapter – peripheral awareness.

    To begin with – I tried immediately to walk around the garden with peripheral awareness for 10 minutes and noticed improvements in Vision – from around 17cm to 18+. Not steady but still, the improvements occurred.

    My questions are:
    1.My myopia is relatively high – about -6. And my glasses are with stick frame (I will attach photo). Should I definitely wear contact lenses while practicing myopia awareness during 1 hour outside? (the reason why I am asking – I tried to put contact lenses on, but I didn’t manage even with doctor and father holding me strong))))) I have a huge fobia of anything alien on my eyes) Off course I would like to avoid it, but if it needed, so, I will do it.

    2. While practicing peripheral awareness, should I actually “SEE” the detail on the outskirts of vision? Or “JUST CONCENTRATING” is enough? I tried to see them as clear as I can, but I didn’t manage, only saw unclear things on periphery. Or I should start with unclear and it will transform to clear?

    3. While practicing peripheral awareness should I walk in movement? Or I can just stand and look at the surroundings? (The reason why I am asking – I also do standing meditation from wu shu, and I thought of combination two practices, if it is possible)

    4. Should I do “close-up blinking” and “peripheral awareness” separately? Or I should do them also together as a joint way of seeing?

      1) Contact lenses when possible.

      2. You won’t see clearly on periphery anyways.

      3. Both is fine.

      4. Either / both.

        Thank you for your reply)) That is really huge help for me)

        So, should I just transfer from my glasses to contact lenses, to practice peripheral awareness every time? Or they also have limitations and I should wear them only for peripheral awareness training?

        P.S. I heard that they may provoke inflammation, but I don’t know whether it is true

      It’s up to you. If you enjoy wearing them, try to just add the peripheral vision activity to your normal daily routine.

      The most important thing is routine friendly implementation of these ideas, so that they stick.

      You can use glasses if that’s how you prefer to work. Contacts tend to work better, but adapt to your preferences and flow of the day.
