Face Book by OD who is successful with plus-prevention.
« on: December 03, 2014, 06:28:13 AM »
Subject:  I know that the emotions "run high" when anyone suggests that early prevention is possible with a plus - if you are an optometrist.

Here is the story of Maurice Brumer, who was kicked out of the OAO, because he insisted that prescribing and wearing a sting minus lens - all the time - was a crime.

But you will never "hear about" successful plus-prevention -- except for Todd's dramatic success.  ODs are discouraged from discussing even the POSSIBILITY of prevention, when you can still read the 20/40 line.

I know we each search for our, "own truth".  That was certainly what I was looking for in an optometrist.  Here is my tribute to that quest to tell the truth.

Obviously, you suggest to a person that long-term wearing of a plus is required, and he will not wear it.  But that is indeed the crux of the problem.

I know Dr. Brumer has attempted to deal with these issues - but the problem still remains.  Prevention is a "family affair", and can never be part of medicine.

I wish you all success, in your own goal in your life.
