Lots to think about, in that one.
I’m posting it for you, for multiple reasons. One, I want to leave the door wide open for the potential criticism of “so if the optometrist doesn’t see improvements, your method must not be real, Jake!”. Let’s leave it all out there, good, bad, otherwise.
Even though there are more than a few optometrist-confirmed improvements here.
And there’s Despina’s current improvement report (our resident contributing optometrist), which, wow. But I haven’t posted that one yet, so let’s just pretend you aren’t even thinking what that could be about! ;)
What should you take away from Steve’s post? To never go to the optometrist? That they’re evil?
YES! No. Not really. Take away from this post that Steve has a voice. Steve can look at two sides of an argument, look at two sets of data, and have a discussion about his way, vs. another way. Forget right or wrong. Think, Steve vs. the average guy, who doesn’t know the first thing about what a diopter even is.
That’s the key here. Personal empowerment. Choices. Without taking sides even, you can appreciate that Steve has a set of tools now to carefully consider what he wants to do. The average person has no choice but to accept whatever lenses are sold (correction … “prescribed”) to them. Compare that to Steve and other forum readers, and of course @endmyopia blog readers, who are in a position to discuss the merits of various positions. Making choices about your myopia, is what this resource is all about.
Choice. It all starts there.
Housekeeping: All week long, blog posts and forum responses may or may not happen on an exact daily basis. It’s all very tenuous with various excursions and inconsistent Internet.
