The data below is gathered from 4-weekly classes held this summer at Infinity Foundation in Highland Park, Illinois. Students received weekly email from the teacher (Mimi Shekoski, PhD) as a recognition and encouragement of their success in vision improvement.
Dear Natural Vision Students:
Awesome job everyone! Again, congrats to all of you, improving your vision in 3 weeks to 2x, 4x, or even more for some.

(We didn’t get to measure Bev and Lynn.)
Note: The Snellen Eye Chart is 20/20 based, used by eye doctors and we also use in the class to measure your distance vision. Diopter is what your eye doctor writes as Sphere, on prescription for your glasses/contacts. The conversion from 20/20 based measurement to diopter is not straight forward and therefore, the above diopter range given is a rough estimate. If you want to learn more about visual acuity test and how to convert 20/20-based measurement to diopter, click here.
Keep up the awesome work, everyone!
