Title: Professionals who complain about the minus lens.
Post by: OtisBrown on February 22, 2016, 10:04:46 AM
No OD will tell you how bad that minus lens truly is.  Except for those people who refuse to prescribe it.

If you wish to do your own research, I suggest listening to this video.

What is the story - from an honest optometrist.

The best statement is this:  In my office, the minus lens is THE ONLY SOLUTION.  I do not know what else to do.
I give my own children a strong minus, when at 20/40, because I do not know what else to do.  That is
a powerful and honest statement. 

It is clear that some people with a weak minus lens, manage to discard it, check their Snellen, and S L O W L Y, get back to exceeding
the 20/40 line.

Pilots - because of their motivation, S L O W L Y, begin passing the 20/20 line.  But NO ONE asks the question, "... when can I quit
wearing the plus (for prevention).  If you are asking that question, you might as well not bother - in my opinion.
