Habits are important in improving your vision in the long term.
One can never be expected to change everything overnight, but small sustainable changes make all the difference. Try adding/changing one thing at a time and implement that change for a few weeks. Once it is a habit, then add another.
The first two habits you should implement
1. Never use your full correction for near work (see differentials)
Other important habits
- Spend lots of time looking at things at the edge of blur wearing your normalized glasses (distance vision)
- Never underestimate the importance of light to your vision.
- Spend time outside every day using your distance vision
- Look at 3D things that move
example: go for a bike ride and look at the branches as you bike past
- Limit screen time (at least one eye doctor says to limit your screen time to 6 hours per day)
- Limit mobile phone use
- Limit sugar-added foods
- Limit alcohol intake (it's a kind of sugar anyway)
- Remember to scoot back from close-up screens
- It's better to use bigger screens with more distance so op for tv or monitor rather then phone if you can
Celebrate IRL Day
IRL day is a minor holiday in which the Internet Fairy comes and ferries away all the screens. Learn more about IRL Day.
