The subject that the ODs and MDs will never, "talk about", which is the reason you should understand it - when at 20/40.

Tragically, they feel you are, "to limited" to understand the need for prevention.  So they tell a fib.  They imply that a minus
is not "part of the problem".

I say - that it is indeed the problem.
Rehabilitation / Ordering your own "Check Lenses" from Zennioptical.

I truly gave up on optometry - or the "man in his office". They believe it is impossible to get out of 20/40.  (This could be a -3 diopter prescription - if you never check.  Or it could be a -1 diopter - if you have the insight and motivation - to check yourself.
Here is the video on how to get these test lenses.  Just click on " 4.00" to get to the basic information:

Most people are in "fear" of doing anything, "on their own".  The only way that you can overcome that fear - is to make your own objective measurements. 
NOTE:  This is not medicine.  It is just necessary common sense.  But doing this, you will gain wisdom, and perhaps, begin passing the 20/40 line on your "home Snellen".  The cost of doing this?  About $30.  For 20/40,  you only need a -1 and -1/2 diopter.  No OD is ever going to help you "get out of it".  That is why your wisdom and self-measurement - is required.

I was  20/15 with R:-2,15D L:-2D and after 2,5 or about 3 years I can see 20/20 although my right eye has still some diplopia and is about 20/30 to 20/40.

Sorry to read that Hardliner. From the time I started plus lenses and vision rehab (years ago) I didn't developed another one. Eliminating all myopic stress is important. Also in this forum grape seed extract is suggested as a very powerful antioxidant that may help prevention.

Search for floaters in this forum and you will see many results. I got my first floaters when my myopia was established for about a year at 16 and wore contact lenses. I suspect myopia, reading with minus glasses and thus overheating the eye chamber, and frequent inflammations of the eye due to the contact lenses' cleaning solution. Mainly floaters don;t go away and we get used to them even if we don't want them to exist!

I am trying tayrine suggested from earthclininc for some weeks. My floaters haven't vanished. Maybe I believe although that they have become more transparent. I have also tried beetroot with no result.

Heat can degenerate hyaluronic acid as well as smoking and too much artificial vitamin c.

Otis@ distant vision permanently lost because one starts wearing a minus lens???

I think a child's distant vision "starts becoming negative" - when they do this:

This subject is FORBIDDEN in optometry.  But should always be discussed.  This is DENIAL of science and fact in optometry,
but proven in science - if you have a scientific mind.  The OD gets this child "in his office", and the child has 20/30.  So
the child gets a -2.5 diopter.  That is why this problem becomes permanent.  It is also why an OD WILL REFUSE TO
DISCUSS THIS ISSUE WITH YOU.    That is why I do not bother with them.

But, I always look at science itself - and expect the parent to understand that if you are prepared to begin
wearing a plus at 20/60, you MIGHT be able to get to objective 20/40.
