At the moment I do not have time to do all the exercises and be mindful of everything. I have so much on my plate, I’ll just have to try to wear weaker glasses or contact lenses at times, and be content with that, but I know that after I’ve finished exams, I’ll be more inclined towards this.
The only way I’ll ever achieve perfect eye sight is by doing the exercises and having lasik. Right now, for at least another year, I can’t see myself living without my glasses or contact lenses. There is, however, cheaper ways of getting the lasik, so I’ll look into that when I have the time. Perhaps I will get to do this, but I want to Zen my goals list to the bare minimum.
I’m managing quite well on the weaker lenses, though I have to admit that I do squint a little bit. I need to be doing the exercises, and hopefully, my eye sight will naturally improve.
I thought I’d lost the weaker lenses this morning, so I thought for a moment that I was going to get away with wearing weak lenses, lol. Well, we’ll see about that! I’ve gone all the way down to -350 from -650. I hope eventually to have such a slight problem, that it only warrants minor surgery or nothing at all, because maybe I can train my eyes to be quick and sharp, without a doctor, by doing it myself. The things around the eye are muscles anyway, so it’s like bodybuilding (sort of, bad analgoy) for the eye.
While in England I wore very strong lenses, so all of the good work I did is wasted really, but I have a long time to get over this.
I’m going to do vision therapy with lesser lenses, and then if I can’t get any further with that, then I will go for lasik. There are a few things that I wuold like to get, but I think that my sight is a better investment. I am sure that i can get quite good sight without corrective surgery though. that’s only a last option.
I might get lasik when I come back from England. I’ll still do the exercises and etc. but I won’t bust a nut over it. I think I’ve done a lot to improve the health of my eyes.
It is absolutely unfair. I can’t see out of my right eye because during the night, those ‘continuous wear’ lenses that I thought were doing me good, are actually giving me stupid bloody infections.
I want to have my picture taken today. I look perfect, aside from the fact that my right eye is as red as a crack-whore’s. I’m putting drops in and cold compresses. It is working to a certain extent, but it’s only going to do so much. I have till ten a.m.
I’ll wait till after I’ve had my lesson today, but I need to get my eyebrow shaped (apparently they’re a bit big) and then I’ll ask them to put a cold compress on it, because I don’t want an all out facial, but I want to have my eye less-red.
I can’t see clearly with the lower lenses taht I have, but I can see sufficiently enough to manage, and it’s actually great being able to sleep in them. I’ll buy more of them, and when I am getting better and seeing better, I’ll almost certainly be able to reduce my prescription.
It’ll take time, but I’ll be able to do it in time. I’m sure of that.
I was going to wait until I was in England, but I decided to wear my new continuous-wear contacts now. They’re a dream! They’re not cheap at all, that, I’ll concede, but they don’t hurt at all.
They’re a weak prescription, and I’ll have to make sure that I do my exercises. When I come home to England, I’ll look amazing, and I’ll be able to see perfectly.
Today I have to go to the doctor to make sure that I do not have an ear infection. I’ll probably go myself.
this is a goal that is going to take a very long time if I do things by the book. I’ve bought two pairs of new glasses (and I’ve gone terribly into my overdraft) but the glasses that I have at the moment are completely intolerable, and part of me wants to throw away any remnants of English life. Before I go home, I will not wear my contact lenses at all, and I will just wear the cheap disposable ones that are very weak, so that when I come home with my very good monthly continuous wear ones, I can just look at things clearly. I will certainly improve my eye sight by being vigilant, but it is going to take a long time.
I wore the weaker strength contact lenses most of today. I can’t wait till my long-term wear lenses come through. It’ll be so cool not to have to take them out all the time, and when I can bring down the strength to a 3.50 (and less as time goes on), I’ll be able to do it by wearing weaker contact lenses all the time.
I think I’ll also buy pinhole glasses when I am in the UK. You can buy a pair of really ugly looking ones for next to nothing. it isn’t as if it matters what I look like when I am alone, as long as I can start to improve my eyesight gradually and naturally.
