    What keeps someone vision from being corrected to 20/20? Shouldn't we
    all be able to have 20/20 vision with correction?

    At the eye doctor, my distance vision is something like 20/300. With my
    Acuvue 2 lenses I believe it was the 20/30 line I was able to read.
    What keeps me from seeing 20/20?

    I have myopia with a contact lens prescription of -2.25. Is there any
    hope in the future?

    Since you are destroying youi Central Fixation ability, you will be
    always more in trouble, and staring your gaze will do only harm.

    Glasses or correction do not avid the stare.

    Hence the difficulty in discerning little letters.

    The more you strain with your glasses on, the more the myopic condition
    will worsen. But the myopic condition is not in the eye, but in the mind.

    It's so simple.

    Why you don't understand?
    "As surely as any soldier ever died on the field, Dr. Bates gave his
    life for a cause, battling against fate, during many years of
    magnificent struggle, when the unending disappointment finally broke in
    hopeless despair. His torch is still burning. There will come some other
    battler, who is fit, and will hold it high until the people who are
    sitting in darkness have seen its great light."
