    Now the self-treatment of our intelligent young lady from Tuscany is
    becoming most interesting.

    She has done a little bit of practice with Snellen cards in the open,
    with a mild sun shining.

    --- Eccentric fixation
    By working at 5 feet with a Reduced Snellen Chart who has the big C at
    the top calibrated for 50 feet, she could see that the big letter
    appeared BLACKER when she looked at 30 cm on the right of it. But after
    a few seconds of the swing, she witnessed this distance to become
    shorter: 10 cm.

    --- Central fixation
    By working in this way she came to see the line of letters named "4",
    which can be read by the normal eye at 40 feet, but since this chart is
    reduced four times, the letter should be seen at 10 feet. She was at 5
    feet, so we can say that she has regained HALF OF NORMAL VISION. A
    great result for a -20 D myopic prescrition after just six weeks of
    self-treatment.

    --- Fine print
    By working at close distance with the pocket-size reduced eyechart, she
    could see at MORE than 17 cm the last line of letters, which is
    calibrated for normal vision at 1,25 feet (37,5 cm). This means that
    her vision at close distance is MORE THAN HALF of the normal. It is
    obvious that she suffers less strain when she looks closer than when
    she looks further away, like 2 feet distance. With the BLACK CHART,
    same size, she says that the same line can be seen at MORE THAN 20 CM.


    The so-called learned men should explain why this difference using the
    two charts, white background and black background. Black is easier to
    read for myopic prescripted people.
