The use of positive lenses
#2
Dear Friend,

David DeAngles made heavy use of Bates.

Further, by his own statement, he had a -2 dioper "prescription". That is, or can be
a Snellen of from 20/60 to 20/120.

In that range, it is possible to go with no minus lens (as Bates recommended), and eventually,
when your Snellen clears (from using Bates) begin using a plus, after you begin getting
20/60 vision (in sun light).

But with -5 diopters, I would suggest just taking your minus off (for all near work) or getting
a weaker (by 2 diopters) for most of your "near" work.

From the effort by "Sassy", Bates is best for you -- in my opinion.

Otis
