Myopia Continues To Spread. Industry Profits Continue To Rise.
It’s the economic reality of the medical field ruled by industry profit motives. Popping a pill, or prescribing lenses is quicker, easier, and far more profitable than looking at eyesight health and preventative goals.

Medical Science Understands The Cause Of Myopia.
The average optometrists claim that myopia is genetic, or “cause unknown”, is completely false. Major medical science journals publish myopia cause studies regularly. Google indexes thousands of them.
Understand Myopia Basics
All Myopia Starts As A Temporary Symptom.
Initial myopia, or pseudo myopia, referred to as NITM, or “near induced transient myopia”, in medical journals.
This is just a spasm of the focusing muscle in your eye (the ciliary). Caused by too much close-up focus, when the muscle is at its most contracted, the symptom is just ‘transient’ – temporary.
While this symptom is diagnosed as myopia and glasses are prescribed, it could easily be reversed at this stage. It isn’t until you begin wearing glasses (the minus lens, as referred to in studies), that your myopia becomes something more dangerous.
Once You Begin To Wear Glasses, Your Vision Gets Worse.
You will find this phenomenon listed in medical journals and studies as “lens-induced myopia”.
When you put a minus lens (your glasses are a minus lens) in front of an eye, be it human, monkey, mouse, or even fish (there are studies on fish!), it becomes myopic. Since the eye is a dynamic organ, it responds to the change in where the light focuses on the retina.
Remember, myopia initially was a focusing muscle spasm. While using a lens to refocus the light seemingly addresses the symptom, it just creates a new problem – progressively increasing myopia.
NITM and Lens-Induced Myopia.
The causality is undisputed in medical science. Myopia starts as a “too much close-up focus” temporary symptom, and is then increased dramatically when you begin to wear glasses.
State University of New York
“The relation between myopia and near work has been reasonably well established in humans […] This includes the environmental factor of near work-induced transient myopia (NITM).”
The University of Waterloo
“The visual environment is an important factor controlling ocular development in lower vertebrates, as well as in higher ones, and eye development is not strictly genetically determined.”
Rutgers Medical School
“In recent years there has been an upsurge of interest in the use of vision training programs as an alternative form of treatment.”
Wayne State University
“In vivo high-resolution analysis of changes in ocular components and refractive state of the eye upon induction of experimental myopia in mice.”
The University of Alabama
“A minus-power lens placed in front of the eye produces increased axial elongation and a myopic shift […]“
British Journal of Ophthalmology
“Ophthalmologists should also recognise and take up the challenge of preventing or curing myopia by addressing its cause and not simply treating the consequences.”
Thousands Of These Studies Have Been Published.
You can find them on Google Scholarly. But the message isn’t profitable. You will never hear about it from your optic shop sales clerk (aka optometrist).

Now even here online, a step-by-step vision improvement program, including therapist support in our support forum.
In The Forum: Thousands Of Participant Experiences
The forum is 100% unedited and uncensored. It is also open to everyone to read (though only participants can post). Some of the highlights make it to the blog, where we also look at exactly what practices the participant used, and details of the eyesight improvements. I provide commentary and feedback to help you leverage these experiences for your own goals.
You can continue to use the forum even after you completed the course, to ask questions and discuss your improvements.
Let’s Look At Some Participant Experiences:
