Another guy reporting of having permanent better visual acuity after RCE!
" However, there is one possible 'side effect' which I read about and has since happened to me, and that is that my vision is actually slightly BETTER in my previously-affected eye to which I now apply Muro 128 ointment than in my non-affected eye. It is slight, but definitely noticeable. My doctor didn't believe me until he had me read the eye charts from across the room with each eye separately, and I was able to read an entire additional line of letters with my affected eye!"
1)  I always enjoy intelligent conversations.
2)  I never say, "cure", only "avoid".
3)  I am interested in objective science, that shows that "just prevention" is possible at self-measured 20/40.  (Self measured -1 diopter.)

4) To better understand forces "out side" of medicine - I would listen to Jake's commentary about people who love the minus lens - and hate the concept of "prevention" at 20/40.

5)  Is the "Plus Lens" prescribed - for long-term wear - by children.  Here is part of the answer.

(Statement by Ophthalmologist Dr. David Guyton.)

If no one prescribed and wore the "plus", my arguments would be weak.   But in fact the plus is prescribed.  What you conclude - must be a matter of your educated choice.

That is all I ask of a medical person, and all that I ask of myself.  My commentary to Jake and his efforts - eventually for his own child.

Hi Jake - You describe the problem, exactly.  I am an Electrical Engineer - my profession.  In fact, when my parents learned of my interest, they did wonder about why I did not, "conform" to classical medical dogma.  Eventually I found (by personal interview) an OD who told me the bitter truth about this issue.  But I still get the reaction you describe.  It is so bad, that I would almost prefer to NOT USE the word, "myopia", because of that reaction -  you describe so accurately.  As I sat with this insightful OD, I realized that my vision had been destroyed by that first minus lens.  I resolved that I would at least help my own, blood relatives - to never get caught in that minus-lens trap.  While I respect medicine, I also know they do not mean, "harm", but they are arrogant about fundamental science, facts and experimental reality.  That arrogance prohibits a rational discussion -- in an office.  If you even TRY to talk to them,  you get the reaction you described,  "... are you trying to tell me how to practice medicine?  Are you an optometry doctor?"  More power to you Jake!  On a scientific level - you have won!

Hi, "Trapped Eye" -
I do not think I posted anything since January of this year.  But to answer your question - I do have a scientific site - that argues that you should be informed of the PREVENTIVE alternative - before your Snellen goes "below" 20/40.  But if you find prevention boring, then of course your "eyes" will be permanently TRAPPED, in a strong minus lens.

I am very pleased that Todd, 'adapted" to the plus lens, as an Engineer.  I do not think most people have that type of intellectual resolve to do it - by their own intelligence and long-term motivation.

I will also include this site - to understand how pilots and motivated persons - make themselves successful.

As always - I only present objective scientific facts.  It must be a matter of an educated choice - for the person to "commit" to  prevention, when he is objectively reading the 20/40 line.

Thanks for your commentary.

Otis have you considered starting your own site.

It seems like you are piggybacking off Getting Stronger.

Everyone is entitled to post their view here, but you post on almost every post about your mantra (I think you must have a cut and paste of lines handy as you repeat them incessantly) and, honestly, it's as pervasive as it is tiresome,

Just being honest - maybe it is time to start your own site

Tried dr Davidoff's program again for about 8 months with no result in my diplopia. Have been doing the warm up eye rolls with more up and down repetitions due to astigmatism and doing the divergence-convergence eye exercise with the Arabic symbol wearing 1,5D plus lenses. Every day for half an hour with no result. The dr remove his latest posts to and he only sells his improved system-program

He is kind enough to reply in some questions.
Practicing being able to discern subtle differences in contrast may be beneficial to the brain's visual functioning. I recall there was an app from MIT (?) for the iPad that showed screens with black markers against a white background where the markers became lighter in color until there were very nearly white. The practice was to be able to locate the markers even as they became less gray on the sequence of screens. I have to try to dig up the name. I remember the claim that those with 20/20 vision would see something like like 20/8 after assiduous practice with this. It did not seem to claim that this was a way to reduce myopia, but perhaps the principle might result in sharper acuity at whatever level of myopia you have.

Coming across this entry recently, I wondered if there were iPhones apps that used the same theme. Indeed there are, and I have been using them for the past few days. If nothing else, they are engaging games of trying to tap which of various squares presented on the screen is the "odd man out." As you go through the screens, the differences become more and more subtle and a wrong choice ends the game. I find that I seem to have the most trouble in the greens.

I have tried cold pressed castor oil in order to heal my eye floaters but the second day of using it my RCE went extremely worse even when I was not at sleep. The oily substances can prevent underneath moisture from evaporating it might even penetrate the epithelium and prevent it from sticking to the Bowman's membrane. Closed eyelids at sleep can also slow down water evaporation on eyes. So when almost everybody advices to moisture eyes before sleep in order for the epithelium not to stick on eyelids and erode, too much moisture under the epithelium and over the Bowman's membrane where it attaches can make the things extremely worse. Maybe that's why the oily ointment the doctor gave me 1,5 years ago in order to make healing faster, it actually made my RCE worse! Here is a very interesting analysis:

I had RCEs, due to a corneal dystrophy, about six years ago. They lasted for about nine months. I went to seven doctors before being put on a a program that worked. This site used to sell an eye drop, called Dwelle, that I think healed my corneas. (I have the dystrophy and RCEs in both eyes.) Today, I maintain my condition with an eye drop, called Muro 128 5%. What these drops do in their own ways is draw moisture out of the basement membrane so that the uppermost layer of the cornea can adhere properly to it. RCEs are basically like little blisters. As we know, blisters make the skin on top weak. When the "blisters" are stuck to something, like an eyelid, they tear off and cause that tell-tale pain of an erosion.

Salz 5% is also a Sodium chloride 5% - (Hypertonicity agent) like Muro that I have been using and prevented very good corneal oedema and RCEs.

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.

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).
