It’s been really hard for me to maintain going WOG as much as I was able to last week and I can tell a huge difference. I wish so much that I could just throw my glasses away and recover without them. Unfortunately work and some home activities require that I wear them. The more that I wear my glasses (for required activities), the harder it becomes to take them off and go without. This is the challenge I’m currently dealing with. My glasses from Zenni Optical should be here next week, so I’m hoping a lower prescription will help. My visual progress seems to have plateaued ever since I could read 20/20 with my once lowest prescription glasses. I imagine that every time I put these glasses on it cancels out any relaxation I had gained for my eyes. If I wasn’t trying to finish up my qualifiers and research proposal for my degree I would just talk to my advisor about taking a few months off!
So far today I’ve completed:
- 2 left leg heaviness A.T. sessions
- 25 minute walk WOG (by myself!)
- working on recognizing apparent motion
- reading a page clearly and noticing the point I see best and the opposite movement of the words with respect to my shifting direction; then moving the page to a blurry position and trying to see the apparent motion in the blurry words while remembering what it’s like to see one letter best.
Today I got some outdoor time which was wonderful! Perhaps I can start doing some reading outside or something to get even more outdoor time.
If I do any other activities today I’ll update this post tomorrow. Have a good night!
