Check Your Vision -- Yourself!
#1
Dear Friends,

Subject: Checking BOTH your Snellen and your refractive STATE -- yourself.

We know that the 1914 study (by Bates) was successful. I was told by a
majority-opinion OD that this success did not "count" because the
kids did not measure their refractive STATE, and their STATE did not
change in a positive direction. :Smile

Here is the "tool" to make that critical measurement. It is called,
variously, a "trial lens kit" or a phoropter.
If you a teaching Bates, it would be of value to demonstrate to the
person that his Snellen is clearing and his refraction is moving in
the correct direction as well. Smile

=================


It's basically a phoropter (one of those
"which is better, 1 or 2" machines) that you can keep in your purse or
jacket pocket.

That's 8 plus lenses, 8 minus lenses and a plano lens for each eye,
giving you a whopping 289 possible combinations! (Sorry, no
cylinder/astigmatism lenses.)

Has anyone tried this? If it doesn't test for astigmatism, how accurate would it be? Thanks Smile

Dear Friend,

Subject: Astigmatism -- the "scare" word.

It is VERY RARE that "astigmatism" will prevent 20/20 vision.

Most people will find that a minus-spherical will get you to 20/20.

The SLIGHT cyl. will make 20/20 SLIGHTLY Sharper.

But is it worth it?

I personally HATE the astigmatism 'CORRECTION'. In fact I insist THAT
IT NEVER BE GIVEN TO ME (As long has I have 20/40 vision -- pass the DMV).

Further, if I am working to clear my Snellen, and get to 20/20, (and some idiot
OD insists that I wear GLASSES FOR ASTIGMATISM) then guess what. ???

I will go home, confirm I pass the DMV test, and NEVER FILL THE $300 prescription. Smile

Just my second-opinion.

Otis
