Elective Un-Sheepeling

A bunch of darling e-mails.

Thanks for dropping in!

Let me share with you a few e-mails from darling endmyopia readers and participants.

First up, a bit of discovery:

Well.  Does this surprise anyone?

Only if you don’t know how the 100 billion dollar a year, for-profit lens-selling business works.

Brenda knows:

It’s the theme.  Go with optometry, your diopters go up and up and up.  Go with us, and the reverse is true.

And just because:

Yay!

You probably can’t imagine how much e-mail an old eyeguru gets every day.

It’s a lot. 

A lot of awesome.

And for those who still think they need glasses for life:

We live in a weird world.  A world where making money is more the thing than telling you that your eyes work just fine.

If they told you, you wouldn’t buy glasses.  And they’d be out of business.

We’re mostly in the business of (virtual) hugs.

Hugs and diopter reduction reports:

And thanks, which I do enjoy and appreciate.

Your eyes are fine, as ole Jakey keeps telling you.  

Also, Michaela:

There we go.  That was about 5% of the inbox.  

Modern medicine diagnostic tools are amazing.  Urgent care saves countless lives.  We’re making a ton of incredible progress in living longer, healthier lives.

But also, blind faith can be misplaced.

Whenever there’s a financial incentive to sell symptom treatment instead of fixing the problem, we run into a conflict of economic interests.  Can we count on the establishment to not sell you a monthly subscription, when they can?  Can we figure that ideas of ethics will go over shareholder fiduciary responsibilities?

Who knows.  They might sell you stuff, if that’s the more profitable option.

It certainly seems the case with myopia, and glasses.

Go make some 20/20 gains.

Cheers,

-Jake
