Some of the eye exam tests that they put her through at the university ophthalmologist center required her to read small print ,in low light,at eight inches for two hours with no break,and then immediately transition to read a 20/20 eye chart in low light.

Reading small print close to the eyes, in dim light - that sounds like doing Bates! You have to relax in order to read it properly, and if you strain, Bates demonstrated that it can cause a hyperopic shift - either way, sounds like a win-win for someone with myopic tendencies.

Is this all suppose to represent some kind of scientific study? Not by any stretch of the imagination does it represent any kind of radomized clinical trial, where there are very strict protocols and guidelines to follow. Any results would be meaningless to the scientific community, bias could not be ruled out, there's no control group vs. treatment group, etc. etc. As a study it would be a sham. But great for for the anecdotal journals.

That part of her test was apparently because she had previously been myopic,and had corrected it with anticorrective lenses.
All of the pilot training candidates were not given that test.
There was one young male that was subjected to some special testing that none of the others had too do.
If any of this group of fifty,and another group of fifty begin to show the slightest sign of myopia during flight training,the plan is that they will be fitted with the appropriate anticorrective lenses immediately.

Got it. As I said, not a scientific study by any stretch of the imagination. Completely biased selection. It was demonstrated decades ago that plus lens usage vs. a control group (an actual study) over a 4-year period in a military academy, showed NO difference in myopic progression between them. All progressed. Removing accommodation load did not help.

Several subsequent plus studies on high school students in the last decade verify, and actually show worse progression overall, a couple showing evidence that plus can actually accelerate myopic progression. The students have a right to know this, before subjected to such treatment, and the military has a responsibility and duty to inform them.
