Bad news is a matter of context. But think about this: how many people do you know who ever got better after they went to the temple of the 20/20 worship?
The thing is, what you are being told by the optometrist, the whole story about 20/20, is a fairly gigantic fallacy when it comes to the realities of your eyesight.
Yes, sure. You can get glasses to let you see 20/20. Or 20/10. Or 20/8. But ... is that good for you?
If you want to [...]

My job is that I make online courses for universities, so I love self-directed learning. I would say that so far the course has been a completely transformative learning experience for me because I didn’t know that myopia rehab was a possibility at all. It’s like being in a wheelchair, being told you’ll only get worse, and that you have no control over your condition due to genetics, and then being told you [...]

Me: "Yea, they probably do. Except I like your articles. I bet readers do, too. If you write them all and I just keep quiet, things will probably turn out great."

I just wanted to send you my deepest gratitude for helping me with all of this! I think I was grossly overprescribed because I can see like a hawk now, and I could never see this well before with my strong prescription.

There is a whole thread related to that post, here.
