At the last annual appointment my eye doctor got ecstatic – my vision improved to 20/20 plus some. No, I did not have any eye surgeries, did not take any eye medications, do not wear eye related devices, or go through some training exercises – all I do is I read what I like; and Oh boy, do I love to read.
You may wonder, how come – I read too, but my vision is just getting worse. That is exactly what happened to me about 15 years ago – for the first time in my life I noticed I had eyes and they did not behave. Fortunately, at that point in my life I had realized that the person who knows my body best was me and, keeping in mind that not every doctor’s advice should be followed, remember second opinion, I tried to find a no medication-no surgeries-no external devices solution.
So, I tried eye exercises; and they might of work, except they were so boring and took sooo much time, or so it seemed, that I skipped them often until stopping completely. At that point my eye vision deteriorated and reading had become no fun anymore.
Luckily, e-readers came to the market, and not just e-readers but e-ink e-readers, and that is when I had the moment of truth. I spent $250 on my first and the only e-reader I have been using ever since (nowadays you probably get one on eBay for $25) and read at the smallest font I felt comfortable with. E-ink requires external light, and the brighter the light the smaller font I was comfortable with. When sunny, I could read very small font. As long as I kept reading at the smallest font I was comfortable with, my eye muscles exercised without me noticing it. Eventually, I could read smaller font at the same light conditions.
Most often I do not have more than 5 minutes per day for entertaining reading, but if I skip 2 weeks, it takes a few days to get back to where I was. Sometimes, when reducing font size, or if tired, my vision may go down temporarily – not a problem- the next day I am back in business. And sometimes it is so sharp – I am not sure I had it like this when I was 16. While I can not guarantee that this idea would work for you as for me, I can guarantee that my other idea at
