Myopia Deep Dive with a Patient
I wanted to share this session with you where I work with a patient who is struggling with her myopia. She has a much stronger prescription in one eye than the other and so I work with her to create a plan for her to begin to bring her eyes together. Enjoy the show.

Okay, let’s jump into the show. And I’ve had an opportunity to read over your history. Thank you very much. I’m curious about the difference between your right eye and your left eye. Yeah, there’s a pretty big difference. Tell me about that. What’s the history of that?
Okay. I think it was like that. Ever since I was a kid. So yesterday, actually, two days ago, I went to the optometrist, and he said that this though the good eye, it’s staying the same, but the bad eye, the one with the myopia is getting worse. So that just tells me that it’s kind of genetically bad. I would assume. So. I’m not sure what what’s causing it to be worse. Like four or five? Yeah.
So you’re are you at like 5.5 or five, and then I
5.2 5.25? Let’s
see here. You wrote it out for me. 5.25, no cylinder, and the left eye is 1.5 with a little cylinder. Okay. So I have a different theory. Okay. And here’s my theory. I think that yes, there is probably some genetic influence. But what I’ve observed is that it’s how we use our eyes that crease the prescription. And in this particular situation, I feel that the reason why your right eye is showing so much more is that it’s the eye you are using mostly for your near work and computer. And you’re working really hard, however, that right eye and the prescription is a reflection of the tension that you carry in that eye. Okay. So it’s a little different take because what I have found is the way you use your eyes of the structure and the anatomy, okay. And so one of the things in our, in our plan today is to stop that, or at least make it harder for the right eye to do more of the work. See, for example, for example, if you had your lenses out Oh, yeah, you took your lenses out. And I had you hold a book. You’re right. I would hold the book here. Yeah. And your left, I would hold the book out here. Yes. Yeah. So your gear fronts, and where your two eyes are focusing in optics, they call that the focal distance. But what it means is that your right eye is focusing much closer to you than your left eye.
So I’ll share a little bit of a personal story about my own myopia. And maybe you saw this on Instagram or something. But when I was a child, I came very nearsighted. So my, my readings are about 3.25. And as that as well, yeah, I had more astigmatism than you might or there was. So I was really, you know, dependent on my context. Okay. And I, of course, went to elementary school. Yes. And when I got after that program, I actually met a holistic. He’s called developmental optometrist.
And he had a physical therapy program. I bought, and took me about six months, and I completely dissolve my prescription. Yeah, that was 35 years ago. And I don’t wear any lenses for distance. I don’t wear any lenses for near I see 2020. And it had very little to do with my eyeballs. And it had everything to do with my brain. My mind. My tension, my stress diet. Yes. And in optometry school, they taught us that you could never improve your prescription. Yeah, they told us that. Yes. So time. And they said if we started to study that stuff, we would get expelled.
Oh, wow. Why?
Because they threaten their, their model. There are no, you go, you, you’ve probably been to eye doctors, and maybe you’ve said something to them and to that effect. And they will say, Oh, that doesn’t work, or you’re, you know, it’s aging or genetics? Yes, absolutely. They say that. You never meet anybody who’s open minded. So I had to deal with that programming that I got from the school as I was healing my eyes. Yes. But if I can do it, you can do it.
Well, and so it would be nice to say again, even a tiny bit of improvement would be nice.
Well, I think you could actually do more. But we’ll we’ll we’ll talk about what’s the best avenue for you. Okay. So I’m assuming you wear context. All the time is that
No, actually I don’t wear it. outside the home, I don’t wear anything but I do wear block blue blockers at home.
So so if you don’t wear anything, how are you able to see the screen? You just make it really large?
Oh, the screen I can see pretty well. As long as it’s not I actually work glasses with the screen.
Okay, and are you wearing kind of a similar type of a prescription?
Yes. But that this one is like five years ago? Five years.
And so what what is that one?
I don’t really remember but it was the right one was the left one was the same but the right one? It used to be four minus 4.25 4.25.
Okay, and what was the left I
left was 1.25 or something. Yeah. Or 1.5.
Okay. All right. Well, And when you’re looking at the screen, yes, and you’re getting that older prescription, which actually is very wise to do. Because when you go for your exam when you you might yesterday, yeah. And you’re sitting in the chair and then going across the room, probably at the chart and the doctor is, you know, calculating what your prescriptions are. That prescription that he gives you for the distance is going to be too strong for you to use at your computer, because the prescription is calculated at 20 feet, or 20 feet 22 inches. Okay. So, when you’re nearsighted, yes, you’re wearing a prescription for distance, you want to wear something less for your computer. So in this case, you’re wearing an old prescription, that’s probably pretty close to what you should be wearing at the computer.
Okay, because if you are wearing, say, five and a quarter, and one and a half, again, I don’t know what your left eye is in the glasses, that’s going to make you that’s going to make your eyes even worse, okay. But probably, what you’re going to have to do lose a couple things is you’re going to have to maybe outside of the computer time, or your work time to interact with your eyes in a process to encourage them to change, okay. In other words, the improvement is going to be much faster. If you can do some kind of a, I don’t know, I don’t know, I wouldn’t call it an exercise because we’re not exercising the eyes, but to help you expand your awareness, okay, and your vision. So an easy way to do that, yes, would be would be to do the following practice. Okay, so I’m gonna lay it out for you. What I want you to do is, I want you to go to your local drugstore, pharmacy drugstore in Victoria.
And I want you to go into the section of the store, where they have the magnifying glasses, reading glasses, yes, they sell those. And what you’re going to do is you’re going to get the strongest magnification lens you can find so the number is going to be somewhere around a 3.0 or 3.5. And you’re gonna see in front of the number is a plus sign. Plus, so, nearsighted people were minus, yes, you’re gonna, you’re gonna buy a pair of plus lenses. And they’re going to become your they’re going to become your, your vision, fitness, your vision exercise glasses. Okay, I’m going to show you how to exercise and, and use the plus lens to reduce your myopia. So you buy the glasses, when you bring them home. And I want you to pick a time outside of your normal, you know, normal things that you’re doing, okay?
And I want you to sit in a chair and you’re going to you’re going to have no lenses on no contacts, no goals. Okay. And the best thing to do if you can as while you’re at the pharmacy, see if they can sell you an eyepatch. Okay, okay, because we’re going to work each eyes dit separately. So you can’t you patch the left eye? Yes. And you look across the room, if you’ve got a window you can look out of or you look across the room, and you take up subjective measurement on how blurry it is. I would imagine the right is pretty blurry. Look out to the distance. Yeah, you’re just measuring this As the blur, I am observing this. And then you take that plus lens and you put it over the patch and over the right eye, and you begin to look out of out of the right eye. And you’re gonna notice that it’s even blurrier. Okay. Okay, yes, the next minute. While you’re wearing that plus lens, yes. Your intention is to see if you can mentally and emotionally relax yourself and accept the blur as it is. Okay. Now you’re laughing. How come?
I don’t know. Yeah, I’m not sure if I can do that very well. But
well, here’s the thing. It’s, you just need to show up. Yes. And notice your resistance. Notice what you start thinking about when you go into this level of blur? Yes. So what is your what is your definition of blur when, when you have blurry vision? What does it mean to you now? just day to day? What is? What is it something you like? Is it something you don’t like?
I don’t like it, because it’s why don’t
you like it? What is it about it that you don’t like?
Not being able to read or see things clearly?
And if you can’t see things clearly, what’s the worst thing that could happen?
run into things or,
okay. That herd can run into things. Okay, I understand. So, here’s why you’re nearsighted. are one of the reasons mental mentally, yes, you have developed a perspective that you if it gets blurry, you can’t function well. So your, your mental attitude is your going to be hyper vigilant. Okay? And is that hyper vigilance, that’s creating your myopia. Okay. And it’s not that I want you to go around in the world and blur I don’t, but I want you to mentally begin to be in choice. When you need to have it clear, and be more comfortable in the softer vision. Okay. So, this, this time that you’re sitting and you have the patch, and you put on the plus lens for a minute, you’re going to surprise yourself because you’re going to wear that for a minute, you’re going to take the plus lens off, and then you’re gonna measure your, your clarity, your eyesight, and you’re gonna notice by just mentally relaxing into the blur, yes. your right eye is now seeing things more clearly.
Oh, wow. Okay, that’s amazing.
And you’re gonna do that three times.
Okay, three times in a row or
in a row. So, so the sequence is, patch the left eye, look across the room, take a measurement, but the plus lens on for a minute. Yeah. mentally relax, take it off. Take a second measurement. Okay. Put it back on for a minute. mentally relax into it. Take it off, take a third measurement. Okay, one last time, put it on. One minute, mentally relax, take it off. Take a last measurement, and you’re gonna go wow, my right eye is seeing it clear.
When you say take a measurement. What do you mean by that?
Subjectively compare if your eye is seeing things more clearly than you previously. All right. So we’re not going to use an eye chart. Just just like subjectively look to see if the lamp is clear the books or get a window or something and then take the patch off the left eye and notice how much more bright and clear, your eyes are seeing.
And it’s gonna surprise you how clear and bright it is without any prescription. So what you what you’ve done just there is you have stopped the habit that you’re constantly you doing to your eyes mentally? By under no circumstances are you going to allow yourself to be in blur? Oh, wow, okay. Okay, yes. So your eyes are gonna get a level of relaxation because mentally you’re now not having to put that much fear into your eyeballs. 24/7 then you patch the right eye, and you do the same sequence, take a measurement, put the plus lens over the left eye. And you’re probably going to notice that at least mentally and emotionally, your right eye relates to the blur very differently than the left eye.
It’s like having a two headed person on you. You’re right. And so if you did this, say every day or every other day, for a month, yes. Your eyes would definitely feel more relaxed. And your your older prescription you actually might start being able to see better in to the distance.
Okay, so, um, I or I ordered glasses from you, and they’re waiting for the prescription. Okay, yeah. All right. All right.
Well, let’s, let’s, let’s talk about that. Okay. First of all, what are you planning on using these glasses for,
for computer time and for iPad?
And so right now? The doctor measured five and a quarter and then the 150 in the left? Yes. And yet you’re using the older prescription?
And you’re wondering what prescription would be good for the computer?
Well, a question for you. It’s not super important, but your old glasses? Yes. Do you happen to have the numbers of that? prescription? If you don’t, that’s okay. But just ask.
But um, yes, it’s in my email. But I do have to do a search
to your email. Did you send it to me? Yes, yes. Okay.
Does it have to be right?
Doesn’t have to be right. No, no, no, it doesn’t. It might not. Say again. Does it have to be now? We’re gonna I’m gonna do a quick search. Okay. Let’s see. See if I can find it.
Well, I’ll tell you why. The emails that I’m looking through that you sent are more about the scheduling and the the instructions on our appointment, it’s not showing me oh, let me look at one more place. Hold on a minute. You see here
I’m not seeing it attached to the charm account. I just have. I would just be curious to know. I would say right now, the prescription that I would recommend for you. If you’re five and a quarter for distance in the right eye. I probably give you a four and a quarter. One a quarter for 4.25 for the computer for the right eye. Does that make sense? So I would reduce it by a diopter have, because that would be where he would need. The left eye is interesting because your distance is 1.5 with the cylinder, yes, I could reduce it by one. So be the same as the left. So it’d be point five. But maybe it would be, it would be nice information to know, in that old prescription that you were which is 4.25. In the right. What what are you actually looking through with the left? Probably? Go ahead.
Oh, really? Not much. There is? Definitely I think I can find it. If I log into this website. It’s the clearly website. So I can pull that up for you. Sorry.
That’s okay. When again, we could do it outside this time if need be. So no worries.
Oh, also, I had some questions about diet as well.
We’ll get to those. Sure. So the plus lens exercise I think would be a good one for you to start to slow down and even reverse this nearsighted progression. I think that would be a really good one for you. There’s another one also, we can do in a minute, but
actually talk to her and I found I found it.
Okay, so let me write it down. Okay.
Okay, I’m ready.
So it’s negative 4.25. Okay. And then the other one was negative 1.50. Really?
Okay. So they didn’t reduce the left I? Just, so that’s interesting, because with the left eye let’s, let’s try this for a second. When you look at the computer, if you cover the right eye, do you see it better? Do you see the computer better? Without no lens over the left eye? Or with the old prescription over the left eye? What’s more comfortable? And where do you see things more clearly?
They try it out or
not? Right right now.
So with right covered, I am the same as almost the same as when I don’t have it. Not covered. So,
okay, do you see that it’s a little harder to see it without the glasses on the left eye? Yes, yes. Okay. So that’s good. So here’s what I’m gonna suggest we do 4.5 4.25 In the right eye, and we do minus point five in the left so so basically what I’m going to do is I’m going to take your, your current distance prescription and the mind I’m going to reduce it by one diopter on each side. Oh wow. Okay. So you would wear 5.25 a distance we’re going to make it 4.25 In the left eye You’re 1.5 Now we’re going to make it a point five and I’m also going to take the astigmatism out because it’s not very much and if you start using a lens without a stigmatism these astigmatism goes away
because it seems like a did another test last year and she was a bit quick. So there was a lot of like astigmatism. And she recommended to have progressive lenses for the computer.
Are you kidding me? No. So you know in a progressive lens, you’re tunneling and narrowing your peripheral vision even more.
Oh, she has it for her kids. She said. They’re really young kids.
So in a progressive lens, the only part of the lens that’s usable is right down the middle. So everything on the side To the lens you can use. So it’s confusing for the brain to have the focus through each compartment of the lens, it makes your eyes work harder in a progressive lens, and the only part of the lens that you’re going to use for the computers a very tiny part in the middle. And so when you’re near sighted, you’re already tunneling your vision. So if you’ve got a progressive lens, yes, that’s going to commonly teach you to tunnel even more, you’re just going to become more nearsighted.
So that advice for you doesn’t line up with what you want. She just given you something because she, you know, she believes in progressive lenses, so everybody gets it. And but for you, that would be a disaster, especially for nearsighted, you’re much better off to have one lens to give you more peripheral. Because that interferes with your habit of wanting to tunnel it. And also, because your two eyes are so different, it’s gonna be very complex for your brain to have to aim your eyes through one of the compartments of the lens. So do you understand why the progressive lens is the wrong way to go?
Yes. It’s just covering the symptom, I guess.
Well, it’s gonna make your it’s gonna make your eyes worse. You’re not, you’re not using the whole lens for one function. Right? You’re trying to do multiple lenses. So here’s the concept. The smaller the window are, the smaller the, the glass you look through, that’s going to induce more nearsightedness. So I would probably throw out all her advice. Because if you had done that might be wearing a six or a seven in the right eye now.
Wow, that’s not that’s not good.
And then children that’s really aiming it’s like putting you in a straitjacket? Yes. They that’s how they think they think in a very mechanical way. Yeah. And they they don’t understand that what you look through is going to induce more of the same. Okay. And, you know, for some people that aren’t asking questions, that’s fine. But that would be a disaster for you to go and plus you it just is not. It’s not. So why would you do it? That would be good. Yeah. So anyway, back to the astigmatism. Astigmatism means the eye is a little misshapen. It’s like an egg. Yeah. And so when you look through us and astigmatism lens, the word is reinforces it reinforces what you already have, right? So the amount that you have is, is not much. And it actually might give you more relaxation to not have this to deal with it.
Okay, that’s perfect, then.
Yeah. So I’ve got it. So what I’ll do is I will convey this to my web store manager,
okay. Or I can send it by email, too.
Okay. All right. So we’ll both do it. I’ll do it too. So I’m going to send send them the prescription with the PD, that’s perfect. And that’ll work well for the computer. Okay, great. But I want you to do this plus lens exercise. Yes. Because I think it will really help you mentally and emotionally start to understand the habits around how your right eye is processing with the left eye. Okay. Okay. All right. I do want to get to your questions and we will but I want to I want to do a screen share with you so I’m gonna let me just find the picture that and the reason why I’m doing this is because I also Oh, feel that for you to really help your right eye? Okay, so this is a picture of jelly beans. Okay, now it’s in the vertical. But when you print it out, you’re gonna hold it horizontally. Oh, no, it’s vertical. And here is the why the exercise is so important. So you’re going to do this without any glasses. Yes, you’re going to take the picture and you’re going to hold it right up to your nose. So that it’s right on your nose. And then mentally, this is important this part mentally, you’re gonna look through the jelly beans.
And you’re going to start pushing the Jelly Bean picture away from your face, and start looking at the spaces between the jelly beans. Okay, and what’s going to happen when you get out to about 10 inches from your nose, you’re going to notice that the jelly beans are going to start floating in space. Okay? We call that 3d. Okay. So this is probably the most important thing I’m going to say to you today. Okay, when you see 3d, your left eye and right eye are working together. So the for the quarter in the right and the half diopter in the left, that has gone away, you are now using them together.
Okay, and the eyes and the brain do have the capability to change and improve. So if you do that jelly beans exercise and you get it out there 1012 inches, you move it a little bit to the left and to the right, and up and down, do it for maybe 30 to 30 seconds to a minute. You do it like three times a day, that will make sure that your two eyes are starting to work together. Wow. I know. That’s why it’s so profound. Because right now, as we said at the beginning, your right eye is focusing a lot closer and your left eyes focusing much farther away. And there’s no opportunity for you to change that. And the glasses that you wear, just reinforce the difference. Okay. Because eventually what I’d like to do maybe in a couple months, is making up a prescription where both eyes are actually the same prescription.
Oh, wow, that would be amazing. And
to have you do that and wear it as an exercise will reduce the reinforcement that’s happening with your current glasses. Because every time you go, they are measuring the difference. And they’re giving you the difference. So it’s going to reinforce the difference. Okay. So the steps to be able to receive or get used to the same prescription each eye, the steps would be to do the plus Lens Blur exercise. And also the jelly beans exercise so that you’re beginning from an inside out place from an internal place. You start to use your two eyes together. Okay, and then you can get the glasses to help you with that.
Okay. Does that make sense? Yeah, that’s amazing.
Okay, hold on one second. So any questions about that, I will email you the jelly beans exercise with the directions. And then I will send you some directions about the plus lens to blur. And then on the only thing you’ll need to get will be the eyepatch and then the reading glasses, which you’re using as a vision exercise.
Okay, yeah. Oh, yeah. Perfect. Yeah, thank you.
And then number three is I’ll email my web team, to this prescription that you’re going to get and I think it’ll work really well for the computer.
Okay, great. Yeah. Thank you so much.
So let’s go to your questions.
Okay. So I ordered your MSM drops the five and the 15. So, is it okay to drop them in inside the i because I’ve been Doing the massages?
Yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to put them inside your eyes. They’re very good at lubricating and moisturizing, they also can really soften your high tissue. I think just start off slowly, you know, maybe do it twice any anywhere between twice to four times a day. If you use too much of it, at first, it can overwhelm your eyes. Okay, so sometimes there can be a little bit of blurriness or something like that. But that goes away. But yes, you can use them throughout the day, that’s a very good support for your screen time to have those ups there. And the 15th, the 15th may burn a little. That’s okay, that’s good. That’s just opening up the circulation. And you can do the 15. And then if it burns, you can put the five in right after, and that’ll take the burn away. Okay. You can see how you want to do that.
All right. It’s because I have floaters one. There are a lot in the worse I the one with the mic.
Yeah, so let’s talk about floaters for a minute. So the 15% would be the ones that are going to help you with the floaters although both of them are good, but But there may be some other things that at least you should know about with with what causes floaters. So first of all, with floaters you can consider the relationship between your liver health. In Chinese medicine, you’ve heard the connections between the lower and the eyes. Yes, and no you can do a liver detox that might help if the MSM doesn’t do it, okay. So you could do a an herbal formula that includes milk thistle, yes. And maybe do two or three week liver cleanse. Another thing that helps the mu getting rid of your floaters is lymphatic stimulation lymph. About with the eyes. One of the exercises we do that improves the floaters in the limp is something called Long swings. Okay, this is an exercise where I’m going to
let’s see here. So it’s basically swinging like this, okay. This is really good to do for your because when you start moving your eyes, and the body that stimulates the lymph, that can also help the floaters move out. By the way, that plus Lens Blur could also help your high lymph as well. It could be something like walking rebounder, you know, those kinds of things can be beneficial. So limp is one another one that sometimes helps floaters is eating a little bit of pineapple. There’s something called Brahma lean. And some of the studies have shown that brambling can actually reduce floaters, right. So you can look at that.
Do you know are the floaters actually stuck in there? Like is there a way for them to move out?
Yeah, so the eye is made up of mostly fluid. And the the gel of the eye it’s a gel sac called the vitreous is made up of mostly collagen. And when you start getting floaters, the integrity of the collagen either becomes dehydrated it shrinks. In some cases, small number of cases you can actually get larger but most of the time it’s a dehydration issue. An imbalance in the collagen. So the protein breaks Soph and these little specks are floating in the gel. The way that they discharge out of the eye is through the lymph system through the circulation, really. And so by moving the length by doing the MSM, because MSM is collagen supporter,
I see because another person on Instagram, he’s into help. He was saying like be do fruit cleanse fruit diet to move it out of the lymph system. So it’s not Well,
I think one of the things that you want to be careful about in a fruit diet is the glucose levels. So glucose is the enemy of the eyes. Okay. And so, you know, if you’re doing a fruit something in a fruit family, yes, more low, lower glycemic index. You know, I to me, if you’re going to do some kind of a cleanse like that, I would also add things like ginger road Tumeric road, so it’s anti inflammatory, I’d add a little bit of kale spinach or something. Celery is another good one cucumber, so they’re anti inflammatory. And then a little citrus, like maybe a little lemon or lime. And then of course, you could do berries. You know, I would stay away from things like bananas, because they’re very high glycemic index. And they they also it’s a damp food. So sometimes, that’s not great. If you want to sweeten it, you could add a little you could add a date or a little cinnamon. Cinnamon is good because it doesn’t spike your your glucose levels. So sugar is a big enemy for the eyes. Even. Okay, so just doing a fruit something again I would check into it check into your, your glucose tolerance.
Because all these Sorry, sorry, these floaters came out after like a juice fast and then like a lot of digital time. So I don’t know, which caused that it’s probably the digital time but
well I do think that what happens with floaters is that there’s a there’s a change in the collagen integrity and the fluidity in the vitreous. And certainly computers Dry your eyes out quite a bit. Stress. Yes, yeah. Stress. Also, you know, makes things more acidic. And your system. Yep. You know, you want to make sure you’re getting enough healthy fats and oils in your diet. Oh, really? Okay. So you shouldn’t be taking? Are you? Are you vegetarian or vegan? Or do you? Are you more of a full menu?
I want to ask you about your diet because do you eat dairy? Or eggs?
I do eat cage free eggs. I don’t eat dairy. Because for me, it creates too much mucus. So I do very low or no gluten, and no dairy. My sugar is again very low. I think for each person. One has to decide what they eat. Does it feel good? Okay. I have patients that are very strict, raw vegan. They live in climates that are warmer it’s kind of hard in Europe, your climate to do RAW, you better off doing cooked food sorry,
it feels like if I do eat more raw food. It’s more hydrating and I can see better with raw food.
Okay, so, by the way, I went to a really good vegan restaurant in Victoria. Oh, which which, which one? Which one? I’m gonna see if I can find it. We went several times and it was so good. You You might or might be be love. Let me see. Let me look it up on Oh, no. Have you been to be love? Yes, yeah. Do you like it?
Yeah, it was awesome. Yeah.
I think that might have been. We kept going back there. I mean, I I love the vegan a lot of vegan stuff I find because I live where we live, we get a lot of snow, it’s cold. I have to have like soups and stews and Kittery. And let’s see, Victoria.
People in a colder climate they need to eat more warming foods.
Yeah, exactly. See? Yeah, that’s a be love. Yes, yeah, it’s
That was really I mean, I really just loved it, it was. So that’s the kind of food I like, I mean, I’m very clean. But I think you have to decide, you know, certainly plant based is the way to go. I don’t eat processed foods, I cook my own food. And we have a co op. Here where we in farmers market. You know, another thing to look at is your microbiome, your probiotics. And, again, that could be through fermented type foods. If you feel like you want to take a probiotic supplement, I tend to use, I’m able to get something called a coconut based yogurt, which has a lot of probiotics in it. So I would say eat the joy diet, what makes you happy? What makes you feel good? Try to eat as natural, chemically free foods. Yes, the closer to the earth, the better plant based, you’re going to do you know see food wildcard know if you can. And but fats and oils are really important to make it threes are very important. That’s why I was asking. Because if you’re vegan or vegetarian, you can do like an algae based Omega three, or you know, flax or chia seeds or walnuts, you know, just depends. If you
which we’ll say again,
Which brand do you recommend for omega threes?
Well, metagenics mdta Ge N ICS puts a good one out. Another one is Nordic Naturals. And I have an Omega three than they just put up on my webstore. But the thing is, is that shipping to Canada can be a little challenging. Yes. So inexpensive. So you know if you can shop locally for it, by all means. Oh, yeah,
border Europe, red therapy glasses as well
as you like to? Yeah, so the red glasses might also help you, you’re definitely going to bring more energy to your eyes. Okay, because it addresses the mitochondria. So I don’t know that it’s gonna heal all of your myopia. But from the computer use, it might actually help your eyes by just looking. Basically, you need a dim light source, you don’t need a super bright source. And you just look at the glasses three to five minutes a day. And you don’t want to be reading or working or it’s kind of more of a meditative experience. Do you allow the red to come into your eyes? But yeah, it’s very good. It’s very good. Very good for sure. Do you personally use it annoying or? I have Yes. Yeah, I think I think the red is very good. So for sure. I think it’s red light is very good. Okay. So what other questions do you have?
Oh, well, I guess that’s it. So do you recommend doing those two exercises both jelly beans and the
lens blurry. I would say do the plus lens exercise if you can do it three to four times a week. Okay. Um, it’s going to really relax your eyes and allow you to see things more clearly. However, it could be emotionally challenging for you. But in the end, your eyes will feel more relaxed. What’s driving a lot of this is your mental decision about blur. Okay, now your right needs more control than the left. That’s why more nearsighted and, and then do the Jelly Bean, just have a buyer your computer and just do it a few times a day is a break. Yeah, it’s good to incorporate that use the MSM a lot. Do the ILM and the lymph stuff. Diet wise, you know, you decide what feels good in terms of cleanse or, you know, liver and try to eat as healthy as you can. Okay, and then maybe let’s talk in about three months.
Are you Will you still be doing the telemedicine sessions?
Yes. Okay, perfect. Yep, I will. Okay, if you live closer, I would invite you to one of my master classes. I’m doing it on California. I used to teach I used to teach workshops in Vancouver.
Oh, okay. That’s not too
far from you. So we’ll see if that comes back. My organizers retired, I used to teach at UBC. That’s really close. Yeah, it is close. It is close. We used to get people from Victoria. And you can come to the masterclass because that’s a really good, really good thing. Anyway. Oh, keep in touch on that. But in the meantime, I will email the prescription to my web team.
