Whenever I talked with Alex, he always expressed concern about people not believing the premise of myopia rehab.  It’s one of the things I always disagreed with Alex about, to some degree.  Why should skepticism be a bad thing?

You know what skepticism means, more than anything.  It means you are thinking.

I like thinking.  I like you thinking.  Why should you blindly believe what some random guy on some random Website says, something that goes counter to everything you have ever heard?

Question it.  We shouldn’t try to convince you, with our support forum, with our client reviews, with money back guarantees, with free course trials, with pretty graphics.

Instead, we should give you a means to direct your questions.  Where can you find research for and against vision improvement claims?  What does the science say?

For example, consider this:  there are plenty of studies that suggest that axial change in your eye isn’t real (which goes completely against what we say here).  Studies that say that the eye can only grow longer, but never shorter.  That would be unfortunate, if true.  We should feature those kinds of things.  Questioning is the first step towards looking for real answers.  Because really, if you are ready to not believe me about your eyesight, you might also be ready not to believe the chain store optometrist.  And that is a great start.

We just need to be the seeders of reasonable doubt (with the help of your forum posts and blog comments).  New readers should come, read, and just start to doubt that little bit, that the mainstream treatment program of lenses is the only way.  Dig deeper, and find their own answers.

That and more comments.  Our articles must be quite boring to elicit so little feedback.  Are they?

Cheers!
