// July 2013: With non-prescription sunglasses (I LOVE sunglasses and have always wanted a whole collection…) / Original Myopia = -7.25; close to -4.00 as of mid-2013].
I’m Jess. I was born and raised in Singapore (where I was first deemed as “myopic” when I was 8 years old).
I identify myself as an author/artist/non-conformist. jessINK = my indie publishing division.
ABOUT THIS BLOG:
I’ve worn glasses since 1994. My eyesight got steadily worse over each year (most intensely during my early teen years), till it reached an all-time high of -7.25 degrees (short sighted / myopia / can’t see clearly for distance).
In 2008, my vision was starting to get “fuzzy” with my -7.25 glasses. I was in Maine, USA at this point in time. I remember sitting at the computer and thinking to myself that there surely must be a natural way to improve one’s own eyesight. After all, most humans aren’t naturally born with vision problems.
I did some Googling, and chanced upon Thomas R. Quackenbush’s book, Relearning To See (which is based on the Bates method). You should definitely get that book, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts behind the natural way of improving eyesight.
I elaborate a little bit more about this book and “how I got started with it,” with my first blog post.
I started this blog in May 2011. I intend to have a small number of blog posts, which feature concise, succinct content. I believe I might be able to help/inspire others to try going this route, without rambling overboard/wasting anybody’s time :)
I am an English/Business graduate (finally!) of Adams State College (great institution).
I published my first book in 2009, a blog/IM novel titled EyeLeash. I like writing about sex, not porn, and writing about love/emotions, not fluffy romance. I’ve always wanted to be true to myself and live a life I want to live.
Somewhere in Quackenbush’s book, it is stated that one’s eyesight can be taken as a barometer of one’s health. I find this to be very true, as I’ve consistently noticed my eyesight to be much better when I am less stressed out on the whole.
I’ve always believed in doing things correctly, even if they might take more effort or time than a more “convenient” option (something worth doing usually does, anyway). I have several other blogs, and I like to draw, do yoga, exercise, and read in my free time.
