Glasses at a young age and reading without taking your minus glasses
off will led to stair-case myopia and your eyes will be really bad in
short time. And you wonder why myopia is an epidemic!

I hate to be impolite, but you post absolute rubbish. What's your
problem?

Dear AceMan,

That is nothing -- compared to a recent report of a 3 year-old with
20/50 vision.

The child was "judged" to be -10 diopters MYOPIC.

So rather that allowing the child time to develop -- they
PRESCRIBED a -10 diotper lens -- and insisted that
the child START WEARING IT ALL THE TIME.

Quote:
From the study of the primate eye -- is it clear
that the eye's refractive STATE will "follow" an

applied -3 diopter lens. (i.e., the refractive STATE
of the -3 diopter group will change by -2 diopters -- if
the -3 diopter is worn 16/7.

It is hard to see why a child (at 20/50) would be
put into a -10 diopter lens -- with no concern
with the secondary risk of that action.

I think the parent should have been informed of
this issue -- and given a choice or option.

But that never happened.

Just one man's opinion.

Best,

Otis
