    #111 | Jake Steiner - Nearsightedness is a Refractive State, Not an Illness

    #111 | Jake Steiner - Nearsightedness is a Refractive State, Not an Illness


    Eye Health Activist | Entrepreneur | Coach


    Jake Steiner is not an optometrist. He’s a guy who sat in too many optometrist chairs as a

    child, and is now tapping into his innate passion for shaking things up. After trying

    prescription lenses, eye drops, eye exercises, and countless other method, Jake found that

    none of them actually corrected his -5 diopter vision... and some even made his eyesight


    Jake knows the internet is a tricky place filled with non-trustworthy information. However,

    by combining his insatiable thirst for knowledge with his desire for change, Jake pored over

    thousands of academic journals in the field of optometry, and found enough peer-reviewed

    data to confirm exactly what he had conjectured: myopia is neither an illness nor a

    disability. It’s refractive state that can be reversed naturally.

    Through his research, Jake was able to completely eliminate his -5 diopter

    myopia, and in the past decade has helped thousands of others reverse their own

    nearsightedness. His rationale is based on the reality that glasses do little more than create

    customers for a $100B/year retail industry, which does nothing to address the cause of its

    consumers’ (reversible) myopia. Jake doesn’t recommend eye exercises or complicated

    regimens. Instead, he helps identify eyesight-damaging habits, then provides simple

    solutions to correct those habits. Jake will tap into his research to explain the science

    behind every habit change and activity, giving you the tools to quantify your own progress

    and ultimately achieve perfect vision.
