    By now, you are really wondering how my orthoK went. Keep in mind I
    tried a simple verson and type of soft contact lens based orthoK. It
    *does* work for some people, improving vision by up to 2 diopters
    reduction in myopia. One lady reduced her myopia by a diopter. It is a
    cheap way to practice orthoK and experience it before deciding to
    plunge $1000-2000 on RGP orthoK. I failed to achieve any measurable
    amount of improvement with soft orthoK for two nights that I tried it.
    I was able to fall asleep in those contacts, although they were
    uncomfortable while awake and when I woke to use the bathroom, my eyes
    felt dry and uncomfortable. Gently massaging my closed eyelids with my
    wet fingers and blinking a few times helped. I did not feel a thing
    when I closed my eyes. My friend also mentioned the discomfort and
    adjustment period.

    OrthoK is more comfortable and easier to tolerate than daily wear
    contact lenses in mine and other's experiences. My theory is perhaps
    soft contacts are too flimsy to really mold your cornea epithelium,
    although it appears to work for some people. I was planning to use soft
    orthoK till I upgrade to RGP orthoK once I have the money. Since soft
    orthoK is not effective for me, I am sticking to glasses and natural
    vision improvement for now while saving up for RGP orthoK. I need to
    get a consultation, sooner the better. An orthoK practioner that offers
    some sort of satisfaction guarantee is preferred and also one that
    doesnt chage a fortune like $2000. I am not touching lasik, it is
    either RGP orthoK for me or ill stick to glasses till technology
    advances where something based on orthoK or some other method gets
    invented that has risks as low as contacts/orthoK *and* is reversable,
    an important safety net in case of dissatisfaction.

    My reccomendation is if you dont mind daily wear contacts, stick to
    that. There is very little point to orthoK if you are fine wearing
    contacts while awake. OrthoK is aimed at glasses wearers who which to
    reduce dependency on glasses and improve their unaided vision.
    Refractive surgury, especially lasik is not a viable option as its very
    risky and causes complications. People have glasses or contacts/orthoK
    as their choice. Technology a few years from now may offer additional
    choices or improvements in glasses, contacts and orthoK for improved
    comfort and better vision. Most people dont like glasses or their poor
    uncorrected vision, but for now, their choices are limited. I have been
    dealing with glasses and will countinue to do so as long as neccessary.

    Several (major) snip in a bunch of blablabla
    not really....
    You never tried daily wear RGP contactlenses Ace....., neither did you try
    the OK lenses.

    Final conclusion as earlier concluded by several other real eyecare people
    here, you stick to glasses for a long, long time after this message.

    Ace , for now, bedtime, give mom and dad a kiss and dissapear between the
    sheets and remember hands above the sheets.

    O, after you wake up , google on masturbation and short sightness and show
    us on of your discoveries after that.

    Remember, me, being the pope , I have the real second opinion knowledge.

    Only have experience with soft contacts/soft orthoK. Ill be trying RGP
    orthoK once I save up about $1500

    Its either RGP orthoK for me or glasses. Technology in the near future
    will open new alternatives. There are dozens of millions who too would
    like to reduce their dependency on glasses.

    LOL I am not 12!

    Problems associated with Over-Masturbation and Over-Ejaculation
    (Document 1);
    The result: Sexual Exhaustion - What? Why? and How? Over-ejaculation
    melts down the acetylcholine/parasympathetic nervous functions first
    and then the liver functions that release essential enzymes for the
    syntheses of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine and
    serotonin and the chains of hormone production; it causes the brain
    and adrenal functions to perform excessive
    dopamine-norepinephrine-epinephrine conversion and turn the brain and
    body functions to be extremely sympathetic. It results in the brain's
    and nervous dysfunctions, stress, anxiety, impatience, eye floaters or
    fuzzy vision, buzzing (noisy) ears, cardiovascular irregularities,
    urinary incontinence, male and female "prostatitis," weak kidney
    functions, pain or cramp in the pelvic cavity or/and tail bone, weak
    muscles or ligaments, and so on.

    Myopia is not always caused by masturbation. In my case, wearing a -1
    lens when I was 12 caused my stair-case myopia.

    CatmanX, you are an orthoK expert that has done 800+ people and only 3
    wanted a refund. Have you done any soft contact lens orthoK?

    There is no such, based on soft contactlenses, OK, in other words you
    had no OK, period.

    Speaking of saving money, get a job, the sooner the better for all of us.
    I'll take it for granted you never try OK so stop telling us you shall.
    What a laugh you are Ace.
