I know you were successful because you did not "hold back" from wearing a plus all the time, until you exceeded the 20/20 line (refractive state 0.0 diopters). But you ask the question, why are people so timid and afraid to do anything, in an intelligent, wise and organized fashion, as in science? I have no answer - but I can provide some quotes - as to why so few people can face science and facts.
THE COURAGE TO SUCCEED
The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore … unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible … it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors … to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.
THE ESSENCE OF ACHIEVEMENT
The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena … who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause, who at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fail while daring greatly … so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE
Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore give yourself fully to your endeavors. Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast … and one day you will build something that endures; something worthy of your potential.

You will be successful with plus-prevention for the rest of your future life - I have no doubt about it. I only advocate prevention for those with a mild prescription, and for those who see prevention as an intellectual challenge - as you did. But for everyone else - I have no explanation as to why they are too timid to think, or to much in fear - to anything as difficult as prevention.
How is it that there are over a thousand members registered on this forum, and yet over half of the posts ever made have been from five of them? Why do so many people sign up and then never post? I have been talking with Todd a little bit about trying to get more activity on the forum here, but there is only so much I can think of. So to the rest of you, if you are even still here, why don't you post more often? What are some ways that this forum could become a more interesting place?
