Rehabilitation / Re: Diplopia

Finally, Jake suggests something when the visual acuity ratio is significant. He suggests only about 15 minutes per day of patching the strongest eye for near vision.
It is basically a simple document, going from big font 60 to font size 3

Eye exercises don't exist but this will help people understand print pushing .

This makes it very easy to find the "active focus point" where the eye lens begins to blur.

It is very simple and very effective.

Rehabilitation / Re: Diplopia
« Last post by Alex_Myopic on March 21, 2017, 03:44:07 PM »
I stood very lucky and noticed the following that supports more my claiming that diplopia in the last dioptre of rehab is astigmatism, exchanging dioptres for cylinders, principal meridians in the eye that don't come to emmetropic shape at the shame rate (?) or inner lens astigmatism that maybe due to the visual cortex not controlling the eye well.

I was watching tv and tilting my almost empty glass of water. Than starting playing and saw through the prism (glass) with my eye that has diplopia. I saw almost 20/20 with no diplopia and read letters that couldn't before, just looking through the glass! Then thought that the external and internal surface of the glass of water is CYLINDER, the same word for measuring astigmatism and the same surface as prisms-lenses for astigmatism!

My glass of water was almost empty, it was not big in diameter and I had to tilt it in order to look through only one layer of glass and not two(=through the whole tumbler).

If you're doing it right that's what the results should look like, quick shot down from the -4s to the low -3s then grind it down into the -1s.  I heard that Jake guy is at -1.75 from the -4s.

I'm not sure if it's possible to get to zero diopters from the -4s, but you worry about that after you get into the -1s and get your license vision restriction removed.

Hi kuber,  did you improve your eyesight ?  Did you do printpushing ?  See you soon !
Rehabilitation / Time of practice
« Last post by foie on February 20, 2017, 05:50:52 AM »
Hi everybody !  A little question:
If i practice 1 hour by day with print pushing or hart chart challenge,  could i improve faster than passive plus lens therapy ?  How many minutes by day practice  to wish 0.5 dioptrie improvement in 1 year ?  Cheers

News and Background / Re: Ben Rubin interviews Todd about hormesis

I am an engineer, and Todd is a scientists.  Tragically, you will find that optometrists never take science seriously.  Here is the science and statistics - that confirm why Todd was, and is successful.  Success can only come from an educated parent.

For me, I no alternative.  If you are wise, and motivated, and will work to pass the DMV, then success is possible.
Personally - I will never trust an OD measurement. 

I do it myself.
Rehabilitation / Re: My tribute to an optometrist - who told me the truth.

All I ever asked for - was that I be told scientific truth - while I was still able to read the 20/40  line -  and get myself back to 20/20.  But scientific truth is "tricky", the OD will tell you.  I know I made my choice, when I was at 20/40.

Yes - Todd was successful.
Because he did not, "hold back" on the wearing of a plus lens.
Because he resolved to PASS the only real requirement (Pass the 20/40 line - or better).
But people who demand 20/10 (that they always get from a strong minus lens) will most certainly become permanently myopic.

It is all a matter of your educated choice.
Thank you, Otis! I am so glad I came across all of these resources. At least it gives me hope we have a chance to improve my son's vision instead of submitting to passive acceptance of its annual deterioration. I feel like we have plateaued now between 20/50 and 20/40, but it's been only a month now and it's still better than being between 20/100 and 20/80.

We will continue following Todd's and your recommendations. I will post our updates. Thank you!
Hi 9yo Sun,
You are in a good position - if you continue to teach your child to 1) Sit up, 2) Read through a plus lens,  3)  Keep this up for all reading, 4) Accept that passing the 20/40 line (both eyes open) is a continued success.  There are brave ODs who call ODs, "researching myopia" - fradulent.  Here is the post by Dr. Maurice Brumer.

If I stated this - you would not believe me.  But this is an OD with 50  years experience.

I will never say, "cure", but only "intelligently avoid".  The "background fact" - is that our eyes, "go down" at a rate of -1/2 diopter per year - for each year we spend in school.  For those who, "object" to the plus - well they must understand that fact.

No OD will tell you this!  Because it would under-cut - the basis - of their entire profession.
