Vision story

I think part of it is because they just blindly follow the textbook. Whatever they teach in "eye doctor school" rarely gets students to question the material taught.

If the big book with ink in it said its so, then it's so. Seriously? Even if you just question a few of the things you'll find various discrepancies!

They sure like to use "he or she said this about the new eyeglasses that give your eyes magical super powers" as testimonials for their products, but whenever we use even a story where someone reduced their prescription, oh, NOW it's "not credible" or whatever legal crap they start spewing out.

Yep, Nancy's right about that. People who don't wear glasses tend to not give a rat's ass if you want to go without glasses and see what you can do.

The reverence for authority is representative of a deeper problem in society. People are constantly exposed to distorted information and outright lies from the system, not even just in eye care or medical care. And people eat it up, because the TV told them, or everyone thinks so, or it was in a textbook. Only when people stop eating it up will things change. Optometry has some impressive technical knowledge, but eye doctors generally aren't relevant when it comes to the practical truth in a day to day sense. If they appear to have any authority, it's because you've given it to them.
