How to reduce or get rid of astigmatism.
« on: July 23, 2016, 03:22:22 AM »
This is a review of, "Throw away your (minus) glasses and SEE".

I think that if you even start wearing a minus lens - it makes recovery extremely difficult and time consuming.

But  -  it is amazing that some people, like Todd, manage to succeed - by passing the required 20/40 line  - and better.

Enjoy the video.  Disagree with it?  Please post your remarks - we are here to learn together.

Here is the "Medical Mind" at work.

There is an "intellectual blindness" about her. 

The attitude is this, "prevention at 20/40  is IMPOSSIBLE".  Therefore a strong minus
is the only answer.  Further, the goal in medicine is NEVER to get out of it, it is to
"slow down" the rate at which your vision is going to get worse.

This type of "kiss of death" by this attitude is the tragedy of this situation.  This is why
I use my own Snellen and test lenses, and make certain I always exceed the 20/40 line.

But - do not "bother" with an OD or MD.  They have foreclosed on your visual future - with
that first minus lens.

Tell me I am "wrong" in this judgment.
