Dear AceMan,

Subject: Work for true-prevention.

If you had put this much effort into it -- when your Snellen was
20/60 (about -1.25 diopters) -- I believe you would have cleared
to pass the DMV -- in about 4 months -- as others have done.

No one, repeat no one, wants you to get stair-case myoipia
from an over-prescribed minus. But often the OD has NO CHOICE
because the person concerned with it -- WILL REFUSE THE
USE OF A STRONG PLUS FOR PREVENTION.

But that becomes "our fault" if we are offered plus-prevention (as
the second-opinion) and turn it down cold -- in favor of that
impressive minus lens.

But maybe, the next generation (your children) will lean
from the struggle you are going though with this work.

That is a true "learning process".

Best of luck,

Otis

Like a good obsessive nut, yes, waste a doctor's time.


He doesnt care as hes getting paid. Besides my complaint is legitimate.
My accomodation is nowhere near normal for a person in his mid 20s.
Some of the optometrists here have been telling me I have accomodative
excess, tonic accomodation, pseudomyopia. The fact my vision improved
in the last 18 months due to eye exercises and wearing weaker minus is
proof I have tonic accomodation. I feel I may have quite a bit left
still. I may even get vision theraphy to much more rapidly eliminate
the rest of my tonic accomodation. Ive been told my true structual or
axial myopia could be -3 or even -2 based on the info ive given out.
