: The great sin of arrogance in selling strong minus lenses.

Subject: Where is professional honesty?

Most of us know that a minus lens is a "bad idea".  But when an OD tells you how wonderful is it that your child is put into any lens - with out
explaining the known risks - I choke.

What is the reason - you get NO information about prevention (with a plus), or further, are told that prevention, "is impossible".

The reason is legal - as defined here.

No OD will "touch" the idea of prevention.  Because if they attempt to discuss it, and PRESCRIBE IT, you
will sue them.

This is the largest reason why  you must consider doing true-prevention yourself.
