Need help on vision or eyes?

Discussion in 'Eye-Care' started by William Stacy, Jan 17, 2006.

  1. It looks like the whackos have messed up s.m.v. once again.

    I'm sure it's only temporary, so I'll check back from time to time, but
    for now, you can find some answers and I'm available for other questions at:

    under eye FAQs can you add diopters to 20/xxx conversion? This comes up
    so often it deserves a spot in your FAQs on your website :)

    Dear Ace-man, and majority-opinion ODs

    Apperently anyone who ask questions of any sort that Willaim
    does not "like" is called a "waco", or words to that effect.

    It would be nice if we all had the ablity to ask more
    "organized" questions, but it is clear that SOME people
    don't like that idea in a scientific format.

    Wake up ace, there is no conversion possible from diopters to vision acuity
    and vice versa, period
    There is a relation nothing more nothing less.
    A black and white excample ace?
    A blind eye with a refractive error zero or a refractive error minus ten
    still have both a vision acuity of zero, cappice?

    Free to Marcus Porcius Cato: ''Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam"

    In conclusion, I think that the "Otis therapy" should be destroyed

    Bill, I would have been more impressed if you had listed an impartial
    site such as instead of your own. Maybe it's just
    me but it seems self-promoting/self-serving when you list your own web
    on a newsgroup as a site for info (hopefully you didn't do as a form of

    advertising which would be really classless).

  6. Impartiality neither expected nor required. This is a
    forwarding address! He is more than entitled to leave one.

    Dear J,

    Subject: The concept that the fundamental primate
    eye is dynamic -- should be accepted.

    Re: That is good science -- but it is not you
    "type" of medicine.

    Some more commentary on new concepts.

    "When adults first become conscious of something new, they
    usually either attack it or try to escape from it... Attack
    includes such mild forms as ridicule, and escape includes merely
    putting it out of mind."

    - W. I. B Beveridge, The Art of Scientific Investigation,

    "All truth passes through three stages: First, it is
    ridiculed; Second, it is violently opposed; and Third, it is
    accepted as self-evident."

    - Arthur Schopenhauer

    "Theories have four stages of acceptance:

    i) this is worthless nonsense;

    ii) this is an interesting, but perverse, point of view;

    iii) this is true, but quite unimportant;

    iv) I always said so.

    - J.B.S. Haldane

    "In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not
    worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."

    - Galileo Galileo

    "All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered;
    the point is to discover them."

    - Galileo Galilei

    "You can recognize a pioneer by the arrows in his back."

    - Beverly Rubik


    So as always, enjoy our pleasant discussion that
    respects the prove behavior of the natural primate eye -- when
    accurate measurements are made on a scientific (not medical)

    the truth is otis, the plus lens theory went through these stages
    decades ago when it was first considered. what you don't list is the
    final stage-- when the theory is disproven and some old die-hards still
    continue to hold onto it and refuse to move on! thats where you are

    Move on die-hard!

    You have already shown that you are a legend in your own mind. You
    will remain a legend in your own mind as long as you live.
