// 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.


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.

    I’ve heard of Thomas R Quackenbush, but have never used his program.
    I used Improving Vision Without Glasses or Contacts by the American Institute Of Optometry and it’s pretty effective.
    Is Relearning to See by Quackenbush worth trying?

      I enjoyed his book because it was huge and informative (but not boring). He went through the Bates method very thoroughly so that I got a good grasp of the fundamentals :)

    Hello there,

    I am a fellow believer of reversing myopia naturally. I chanced upon your blog a while back. I have to say your articles and your progress have been very motivating for me. From over -7.00 down to -4.00 now? That is a very good result! What can optometrists say about it?

    Anyways, I want to know how you are doing now. Have you seen anymore improvement? I cut my power by almost 100 degrees immediately after starting my own programme; however, I have not seen any improvement lately. It can be a little depressing at times.

    On advise from your blog, I decided to get the Relearning to See book. Hope to gain new information from the book.

      I know what you mean by the progress or improvement being a bit depressing at times! My eyes are very sensitive to sunlight (when there’s more sunlight, the vision is definitely sharper). I’m still trying to integrate the main “golden rules” at all times, the #1 most important factor being a relaxed mental/emotional state. Once that is in place the rest is a lot easier in my experience. I have this tendency to zone our and space out when I’m at the computer, which is very bad.

      I hope you gain a lot of useful information/motivation from the book, like I did :)
