    Subject: Tragic Intellectual Blindness

    PART 1

    This video is about two minutes long.

    McFarland is taking to an ophthalmologist.



    Tragically they talk THROUGH each other, while the kids put their
    nose on the book -- with no "thought" about the effect this has on
    the
    refractive STATE of the fundamental eye.

    PART 2:

    This is long, about 10 minutes. But you should watch
    these kids WITH THEIR NOSE ON THE PAGE, READING AND
    WRITING.

    McFarland and friend sit there and talk -- not about
    what these kids are doing, but about some "theory"
    that neither can articulate.

    Then the ophthalmologist implies that, "...well the
    minus works -- so THAT HAS GOT TO BE IT".

    There is a lot of truth in that statement. In the "restricted" walls
    of an office -- perhaps nothing else can be accomplished. But
    watch the video:



    In a "closed mind" -- perhaps prevention IS IMPOSSIBLE
    FOR THESE PEOPLE, McFarland, the Ophthalmolgists, and the
    kids.

    But I do agree, that if you are EVER going to institute
    true-prevention, then the COVERSATION MUST INVOLVE
    THE PERSON HIMSELF -- AND BEFORE ANY MINUS LENS IS APPLIED.

    We remain "FROZEN" here with an "understandable" and OBVIOUS approach
    in an office.

    But perhaps we must learn to think more broadly about science and
    facts, and less
    so about "medicine".


    Enjoy,

    I'm not aware of any eye care professional who deems it "impossible"
    to prevent myopia.

    That's a clever, bald-faced lie on your part.

    One of many.

    I am aware, though, that none has ever been shown a safe and effective
    method that works without using powerful pharmaceutical drugs.

    You CERTAINLY haven't shown them one.

    Or ... why would your niece, Joy Benson, have a restricted driver's
    license based on HER impaired vision?
