I’m sure many of you have heard and seen that we can track a cell phone’s location. This
I’ve found that our eyes work the same way as
If I want to focus on the center object with my central vision, I have to use my external peripheral vision to make the center sharp and clear. I use my external peripheral vision to say to my brain Object 1 on the right is closer to me than the center. Object 2 on the left is almost out of my field of view but still closer than the center. Object 3 in the background is slightly right of the center but way further away. By noticing the external peripheral objects in my field of view but not looking at them directly, our brain calculates exactly how far away the center object is and how to focus the lenses of the eyes to make that object sharp and in focus. It’s really that simple. I discovered this because the more I noticed objects in my peripheral vision without looking at them directly the faster my eyes started to focus correctly and sharpen what I was looking at!
At this point in my restoration journey, I realized that we lose our ability to focus properly when we stop triangulating with our peripheral vision. The good news is that you can get it back by
Doing this one simple thing, peripheral triangulation, is not an exercise! It’s
