My tribute to an optometrist - who told me the truth.
« on: December 27, 2016, 07:21:18 AM »
Dear Friends,
I know we will struggle with the issue of "just prevention" or getting, "out of 20/60 vision", under your control.  But Todd was successful, because he had a "weak" prescription, and because he started checking his own Snellen. (Something almost all refuse to do.)  Here is the Optometrist - who told me the bitter truth - that the minus is the world's WORST SOLUTION.

I only wish I had been provided with the science of the eye's proven behavior.  I would have accepted that I must always exceed the 20/30 line - under my control.  Science - proves that Todd was both correct and successful.  I just make no "claims" if you are now wearing a minus lens.
Enjoy !

All I ever asked for - was that I be told scientific truth - while I was still able to read the 20/40  line -  and get myself back to 20/20.  But scientific truth is "tricky", the OD will tell you.  I know I made my choice, when I was at 20/40.

Yes - Todd was successful.
Because he did not, "hold back" on the wearing of a plus lens.
Because he resolved to PASS the only real requirement (Pass the 20/40 line - or better).
But people who demand 20/10 (that they always get from a strong minus lens) will most certainly become permanently myopic.

It is all a matter of your educated choice.
