Welcome to EndMyopia Wiki! 👓
Angel, welcome to EndMyopia Wiki.
Our goal is the best vision improvement encyclopedia possible. EndMyopia receives quite a lot of user traffic, many people wanting information. On social media plenty of questions are asked about vision improvement. Hopefully, the wiki can develop into a really useful resource for newcomers and experienced members alike.
More guidance here:
- Help:How to contribute if you are unsure how to edit wiki articles
- EM:Policies for important information on the way articles are written here
If you have any questions about editing the wiki, you can message anyone on this list. You'll get a response in the forum or discord server as well. If there are any suggestions for overall wiki changes, see the village pump. Happy editing! 🧾
Animated gif removal
Hi Angel, thanks for your contributions! I understand the need for accessibility, but at the same time this isn't a reason to remove animated gifs from the site. It would be similar to removing all of the images off of the main Endmyopia site because I doubt Jake bothered with accessibility either.
You can look into providing alt text with MediaWiki images with the alt tag if you would like: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Images#Syntax
Conversation with Snax
covers why not to convert cylinder during a bike trip (what if you get double vision that is challenging to resolve and you're nowhere near your opto), and some guidelines about cylinder reductions. Conversation was re: this plan I had made for spring 2022 that would happen about a month into my bike trip:
Equalizing and Reducing cylinder
I am not doing more than one step at the same time. By reducing my cylinder, my lenses equalize.
Silver close-up frames
OD/Right: -3.25 sphere, -1 cylinder, 171 axis
OS/Left: -3.25 sphere, -1 cylinder, 176 axis
Grey normal frames
OD/right: -4.5 sphere, -1 cylinder, 171 axis
OS/left: -4.5 sphere, -1 cylinder, 176 axis
If I am a spherical cow and my eyes are perfectly average, I will do a more conservative cylinder conversion later in the bike trip.
- Drop a quarter diopter in sphere for my normal glasses a month into the bike trip after the first mountain range.
NORMAL (April-ish 2022)
OD right: -4 sphere, -1.5 cylinder, 171 axis
OS left: -3.75 sphere, -1.75 cylinder, 176 axis
- Bike in the flat part of the country for a while
- Cross the second mountain range
- Do a more conservative cylinder conversion later than originally calculated. (Note: I am still not doing more than one step at the same time. By reducing my cylinder, my lenses equalize.)
NORMAL (when i'm ready to convert cylinder)
OD right: -4 sphere, -1.25 cylinder, 171 axis
OD left: -4 sphere, -1.25 cylinder, 176 axis
OD right: -3 sphere, -1.25 cylinder, 171 axis
OD left: -3 sphere, -1.25 cylinder, 176 axis
