Why I recommend "cold turkey" when you read the 20/40 line.
« 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.
