Philosophy / I know you "fear" doing plus-prevention under your control.
« Last post by OtisBrown on October 13, 2016, 12:20:02 PM »
Dear Friends,
The OD in his office - has gone "intellectually blind", towards fundamental science.

We all want an OD to "help us", with plus prevention!  Right?  So you ask, is prevention possible, when I can still read the 20/40 line.  Typically, you will get a "hidden insult", like, "who the hell have you been talking to"?  Or, there is no science that supports prevention with a plus at 20/40.  Or, we have been TAUGHT to give you a strong minus 3, for 20/40.  Why would you ever want anything else?

Then - they do not even help their own children - as this video reviews that issue:

I always appreciate a sincerely, honest conversation about this issue.  You will never get that discussion and this video explains why you will no get - what you would expect.

This is why I suggest that self-verification (always pass the 20/30 line), is critical for your success.  Do not ask an OD for any checking - he does not even help his own child - why would he be interested in helping YOU ??

I appreciate your efforts OTIS.

I started with a -0.5 and ended with combined -3 cyl+sph.

I think there needs to be a law, whenever a optometrist prescribes a minus lens  less than -1, he/she clearly needs to state that

1) Use it only and only in places where you FUNCTIONAL life is disrupted. for example at very back of your class.
2) Do not use for computer work, clear explanation what will happen to your eye if you use minus lens for near work.

I've currently made 3 kids in my locality ditch their -0.5 lens with very recent prescription.  Asking them to wear plus is however difficult. Happy if they get out of school without a minus. They can take their own decision for wearing plus after 18.

I see endless, claims.  Perhaps OK.  I support EndMyopia, because someone needs to stand up and fight this deadly minus lens.
Here is my opinion, and why I restrict what I say to only prevention.

This does support TODD, no doubt.  Combining this with "exercise" - would be very wise.
But UNDERSTANDING the need for long-term plus wearing - is very difficult for almost everyone. 

Enjoy,

What i wanted to say was, that may be if cyl is less ahrmful than sph why not replace some sph and by cyl and try reducing cyl.

Will let you know about ym progress.

Here is the reason, almost no one "need" a cylinder.  I personally check with my own sphere minus lenses - and they work great.

This also, is a matter of your educated judgment.

General Discussion / Why I recommend "cold turkey" when you read the 20/40 line.
« Last post by OtisBrown on October 06, 2016, 10:35:07 AM »
From long discussions with HansK, and others, I get the impression they think the plus is a "cure", so they visualize
only "short term" plus wearing.  Science and fact show that long-term plus wearing is required.  Equally, some people "cling"
to a weak minus (of -1 diopters) and can not discard it - and keep their astigmatism.  For me, I would stop wearing the
minus at all - when I pass the 20/40 line.  Here is a video discussing why long-term prevention is necessary.

This is the reason - no OD will talk to you about any "prevention" under your control.

"Why do people say, reduce astigmatism and add spherical."
At low astigmatism and near distance one might even not notice diplopia even without cylinders.
I think astigmatism is harder to deal.

What if i do the opposite.

Next correction i ll reduce my sph by .25 and increase cyl by .5 ...
then spend month reducing that cylinder by .25 each and follow the same cycle

Algo
Wear plus 4-5 hours a day for near vision.
For far vision.
Afte 4 weeks
reduce sphe by .25
increase cyl by .5
After 2 weeks
reduce cyl by.25
After 2 weeks
reduce cyl .25
Repeat

Outcome sph reduced by .25 cyl remains same. Visual cortex is happy.

That is my plan.
