    I have minor myopia and am trying to find some visual problem which
    could explain the nearsightedness. I had LASIK four years ago and
    tested at 20/20 after the surgery. Since then I have noticed that my
    nearsightedness has stabilised. I have just recently started using the
    Bate's method (I know the general feeling on the board, but what could
    it hurt), and on occasion use an eyepatch. When I take the eyepatch
    off of either eye my vision is perfect for about a minute in that eye,
    then returns. I was wondering whether that is a sign of a
    developmental problem, or some sort of already established phenomena?

    Thank you in advance.

    what was your pescription before lasik and what is it now? If your
    pescription is low, hopefully your not back in the crutches called
    glasses. My favoriate exercise involves zooming. This is when you read
    a book then move further so text just slightly blurs then you move
    closer so it becomes razor sharp again. Keep doing this and your near
    point distance will increase. Mild myopes may want to use a plus lens
    for that.

    My right eye was -6.0 and my left was -6.5. Like I said, I currently
    have mild myopia and reading (books) isn't an issue. Simply reading
    things that are far away or that are not straight in front of me is my
    biggest problem. Thanks for the advice.

    Hmmm are you like a -2 now? If not, what diopters are you? How well do
    you see on the snellen chart without glasses?
