Pleasant Surprise!

Many years ago, I read a book by William H. Bates on better eyesight. That was the first and the last time anyone ever suggested to me that eyesight can improve and that it IS possible to get rid of your eye-glasses for good!

Optometrists usually say just the reverse. Whenever you go to get your eyes tested, and it is discovered that your eyesight has worsened and you need a higher power lens in your spectacles, they state so matter-of-factly - "Oh that is to be expected over the years!" Eyesight getting better is still considered a very exceptional phenomenon and not something that everybody can achieve or even expect.

At least, I stopped expecting such a miracle in my eyes!

Until yesterday, that is!

I went to have my eyes tested yesterday and got a pleasant surprise!

Last year, in April, my eye-test chart said:

RE: Spherical (-) 2.00; Cylindrical (-) 0.50
LE: Spherical (-) 3.25; Cylindrical (-) 0.75

And yesterday, my updated eye-test chart said:

RE: Spherical (-) 2.00; Cylindrical (-) 0.50
LE: Spherical (-) 2.50; Cylindrical (-) 0.50

A total change of 1.00 in my Left Eye... for the better.

WOW! And this is when I didn't even use Bates' method for improving my eyesight. All I did was stopped playing FarmVille!
