Myopia (shortsightedness) is an eye condition where distant objects appear blurry, and is thought to affect a staggering 1 in 3 people in the UK alone.
More and more kids are getting prescribed corrective lenses at 5 and 6 years old, and get steadily worse eyesight into their 20’s. How can it be that as a species our genetics are failing us so badly, where almost 40% of us have failing eyesight - a critical attribute to surviving and thriving?
Well, to discuss this condition, and the sorry state of our eyesight globally, we have the insightful and entertaining Jake Steiner join us.
Jokingly, Jake has acquired the cringe-worthy tittle of the 'Eye Guru', as he naturally corrected his eye to 20/20 vision without surgery, and has supported 10’s of thousands of others also reverse their Myopia.
He is the founder and central figure behind the popular Endmyopia.org website and associated social platforms, and continues to provide a refreshing counter to the Lens and Glasses industry.
In this discussion, expect to hear about Jakes own journey of understanding and eyesight correction, some 101 on eyesight principles and research and the key principles behind Jake’s claims of returning your sight, at any age.
