    Yes, some students prefer to not get stair-case myopia from an over-
    prescribed minus.

    They simply read their Snellen, use the plus scientifically, and clear
    their Snellen and always pass the DMV required legal test with flying

    Here is the statement:

    But, then no majority-opinion OD was invovled.

    He was just wise enough to take personal and scientific responsibilty.

    Not easy, but WISE. Tragically, most people do not "care" or are not
    that wise.

    Prevention best,

    As always, then, you -- by implication -- continue to assert that your
    niece, Joy Benson, is lazy, irresponsible, and unwise ... since ...

    Is that nice?

    Is that fair?

    Is that what family does?? Maybe your method simply didn't work?

    I mean ... IS the eye "dynamic," as you say it is, or isn't it, and --
    if it is -- then why couldn't you change YOUR Rx through non-surgical
