Title: Why inducing obesity and inducing, "negative state" have the same root cause.
Post by: OtisBrown on November 14, 2017, 01:25:04 PM
I am good friend with ODs and MDs.  But they refuse to take any responsibility for any prevention work - when you are still in the "DMV RANGE" for 20/40 to 20/70.  (About a value of -1.25 diopters).  They will never help anyone.  Here is the science - they ignore.

You know, Todd was correct in this subject.  I bear no "ill will"against any OD or MD.  It is just that I must "commit" myself to long-term plus wearing, and long-term Snellen monitoring.   For myself, I consider an objective Snellen in the 20/25 range - to be a total success.  But equally, I can not make any, "claims" about getting out of more than about 20/50.

I just wish that I had had this type of assistance, and education, before I was put into a strong minus, when I could still read the 20/40 line.  Maybe you feel the same way.

Thanks Todd - for making yourself successful !!

Better than 20/20.  What is that?  How did I get there?
I elieve in objective science.  This is why I measure both my visual acuity and refractive state.  I know how hard it is to do what Todd did, in wearing a plus for all close work, until he objectively confirmed 20/20. No OD will ever help you do this.

As always, prevention like this - is truly difficult.  Most people have no motivation, and no long-term persistence.  This is why all ODs will tell you that all prevention (at 20/40) is totally impossible.
I agree - for the people in their office - or who are now wearing a minus lens - yes avoiding is impossible.

But - if the issue is self measurement, then prevention depends on both your insights and motivation - including self-confirming results on your own Snellen.
