Double Vision

Why am I getting double vision with reduced diopters?

You start out with complete blur. As your eyes improve, your axial length has decreased but your visual cortex is still getting used to the different signal. Then, your visual cortex adapts and you get clear vision.

Are there any tools that can help me fix double vision?

Reducing

Can I reduce my correction by 0.50 diopters or more?

It's strongly not recommended you reduce by 0.50. Reducing faster does not equate to faster progress. In many cases, reducing too quickly will stagnate or stop your gains altogether.

If you have above 7 diopters of myopia, you can consider reducing 0.50 at a time.

How do I correctly reduce diopters for normalized?
When should I reduce my normalized?

Whenever you're ready to. There are many different rates of improvement among EndMyopians, and you need to find out how fast yours is before deciding whether reducing is a good idea or not.
