Here is my 10-year-old daughter’s progress update:
07/02/2021: L sp 1.50 cyl 0.25
R sp 1.25
She still wears this correction all the time except close up,1.5 hr before school
09/02/2022: L 3.00 Cyl 0.50
R 1.75 Cyl 0.50
The optometrist suggested Atropine drops and MiSight to stop the progression, we never changed her prescription and scheduled an appointment with another optometrist 1 month later. while searching about Atropine drops, I came across your video and started our EndMyopia journey.
Her avg CENTIMETERS at the start of the EndMyopia journry WERE
L 40cm R 66 cm
She stopped using glasses for close-up work AND stopped doing any close-up work after school. She always played outdoors for 3 hrs after school with her friends and we introduced Archery/tennis on weekends and made effort to keep her outside for 5-6 hrs on weekends. she did everything for 1 month.
10/01/2022: According to another optometrist her prescription was L sp 2.50 cyl 0.50 R 1.50 NO cylinder
Avg Centimeters L 47 R 74
Snellen L Easy 20/70 hard 20/50
R Easy 20/25 hard 20/20 with her old glasses.
This optometrist suggested us MiSight which we politely refused and told him about EndMyopia.He agreed to no glasses for closeup but suggested a full prescription for distance.
WE DIDN’T make any changes to her old glasses. FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER, SHE CONTINUED WITH HER HABITS(Peripheral vision awareness in the morning, staying at the edge of a blur for close up and no glasses, break after every 20 mins, maximum outdoors on weekends).
ACTIVE FOCUS: I am not sure if she has found her Active Focus because whenever I tell her to try she thinks it is a kind of pass/fail Activity so resists trying. but she told me she tries this at school and things clear up for a second and become blurry again. She told me 2-3 times during night time when she is in bed and only moonlight/outdoor light is coming in her bedroom, she can see everything clearly for a brief period(2 sec she says). We have a bookshelf in her bedroom and she couldn’t read titles before but she can read all the big titles in that duration. In her words, Everywhere she looks in the room is clear at that moment. I’ve stopped asking about Active focus to her now, Instead, I try to create a natural environment where she can try Active Focus without me mentioning the word “Active Focus”.Her Centimeters keep improving with habits and this weekend we were lying under a tree in our front yard and she was not wearing her glasses. She had her arm around her forehead to block the sunlight and her right eye was blocked with the arm(It was like her right eye was patched). We have fall season here in Canada. I started admiring the color changes of leaves and their patterns so she can challenge her left eye. First, she said she can’t see any pattern with her left eye. I kept admiring patterns and she said she is able to spot patterns and even holes between the leaves. All her observations were right. We did this for 10 mins and when we went inside, I took her centimeter reading, her left eye was at 63CM. Both of us looked at each other in disbelief.then She went outside to play as usual with her friends and during night time reading she could read the 20/40 line at Snellen chart with the left eye which never happened. with her right eye she can read 20/15 letters.
she noticed that she can read book titles on her bookshelf with her left eye as well. Her left eye seems to be improving as well.
we never changed her glasses and now her right eye lenses are too strong for her for sure and her left eye seems to be catching up. I need your advice regarding her normalized .
her avg centimeters now are L 55 cm(mostly around 58-60 in the afternoon), R 107cm
estimated diopter L 1.81, R 0.96
her last year’s correction that she is still wearing Left sp 1.50 cyl 0.25, Right sp 1.25 No Cyl
Snellen’s results Right 20/15 in the last 3 weeks, Left 20/40 since 1 week in night indoor light and she can read better than this in natural light indoors like a few of 20/13 letters with the right eye and with left eye 20/40 becomes more clear like the lines of E and F alphabets become distinguishable.
Today after a most day spent outside she could read 20/25 with her left eye and all of 20/13 with her right eye.her centimeters were L 60cm R 120 cm.
I am thinking to change her glasses to R 1.00 and keep the left same 1.50 and drop the astigmatism correction as her left eye seems to be catching up. Please suggest what do you think about this. Also we have harsh winter months coming ahead so I’m worried about her progress but we always make effort to stay outside for 1-2 hrs in winter and this year we’ll try even more.
