Not me.  I didn’t go to the optometrist.  

I’ve developed a profound fondness for avoiding optometrist consults years ago, even as my eyes started to improve measurably.  Seeing those guys just made me either anxious, angry or depressed.  It took me a long time to get lucky and find anybody in that profession who gave my results an actual thumbs up.

Stefanie though, she did just go to the optometrist.  And Stefanie has much better luck than I ever did, apparently having a supportive and understanding optometrist.  Take a look:

Important note:  If you want to get started improving your own eyesight, I offer a number of courses, including options for one-on-one support with me personally.  Check out the courses page for what’s currently available to help your eyeballs.

Independently verified progress, approved by the vestiges of the licensed and mainstream-groupthink establishment.

You realize that as these reports continue to accumulate, year over year, optometrist after optometrist, at some it should be come difficult to refute that we do here has real merit.  There should come the point where calling us “impossible” (or wizards, as I prefer), should just obviously be nonsensical to any rational individual.

Stefanie’s full prescription is down by a half diopter, as measured by her own optometrist.  She’s legal to drive with lenses 1.5 diopters lower than her original full prescription.  She’s wearing lenses 3 diopters lower than her full prescription, for close-up.  

Think about all those numbers, for a moment.  Especially the differential, the main tool we use to lower the risk of hyperopic defocus, and the resulting lens-induced myopic stimulus.  That one is a whole 3 diopters lower than what she used to wear for computer use.  Not only has she been making solid, verified improvements, but she also very significantly reduced her diopter dependence and exposure for key parts of her daily lens use.  

When you put all that together, can you think of a better way to exemplify responsible myopia control?

Cheers!
