    Dear Second-opinion friends,

    Subject: Paul Harris spells this preventive second-opinion
    on Robert Hohendorf's web site

    A FAQ prepared by Paul Harris:


    DrHarris> During the course of treatment the role of the
    lenses often changes. Whereas at first they helped to maintain a
    good working distance and helped the child concentrate better,
    later on they take on more of a role in the prevention of the
    development of nearsightedness. You may have noticed that more of
    your excellent students are nearsighted and wear glasses or
    contact lenses to see clearly at distance. There are links
    between doing large amounts of sustained close work in people who
    are goal-oriented and detail-oriented and the development of
    nearsightedness or myopia. You may have also noticed fewer of
    those children with learning problems wearing glasses. Once the
    vision therapy has helped the child acquire the visual abilities
    necessary to learn and once they begin applying themselves in
    school they become at-risk to development of nearsightedness. The
    stress-relieving lenses help to prevent this.

    Keep an open mind about plus-prevention, and second-opinion
    doctors. Learn from them.

    Your children could avoid ENTRY into myopia -- if you support

    A web site. It must be true if there's a website out there.

    Your niece, Joyce V. Benson, couldn't. She's a -1.00d (or so) myope

    Why didn't you support her?

    Oh, wait. You did. It simply doesn't seem to have worked, now does

    we don't discuss failures! it worked for Keith. perhaps it works 50%
    of the time. perhaps random chance would give a 50% success rate
    too! how would Otis know since he never did any studies-- he just
    flaps his mouth over and over again.

    Oh wait-- I hear another rousing rendition of "The Printer's Son" by
    Raphaelson coming on.
