If something is important enough, you should try even if the possible outcome is failure.

--Elon Musk


I opened a clinic years ago in Toronto mainly to research the role of neurology in the treatment of nearsightedness. I received no grants, no funding…nothing. I managed somehow to break even over the years, but there was a certain period where failure seemed to be the likely outcome. “Why bother to continue?” you may ask.


It was too late to stop. I was conducting research way before I started my clinic—even before I studied optometry. The first client was myself when I was in my teens. After decades of abuse from all sorts of tests and experiments, I needed a pair of fresh eyes. I chose my son. His nearsightedness was in the midrange. The research dragged on for years. If I knew back then what I know now, the treatment would have been a lot quicker.


I discovered how to speed up the process. It was like a discovery within a discovery.

It is possible to see a 2 or 3 lines improvement on the Snellen chart in a matter of minutes. It is quicker than laser surgery, and there are no side effects or discomfort that needed recovery. The myopic shape of the eye is reversed back to its normally shape without modifying any parts that did not became myopic.


I found that if the eye was mainly myopic, it is possible to stimulate it in such a way that it will develop the natural tendency to revert back to its premyopic shape. The procedure is based on a plain “flexible” pair of contact lenses (without any prescription). The induced “progressive improvement” from the contact lens is the opposite of “progressive myopia”. It would strengthen, stretch, and relax certain intraocular and extraocular muscles of the eye neurologically, and that in turn would reverse the myopic shape of the lens and eyeball. It is the whole eye that changes, and that means the change is more durable than just altering a part of the eye like the cornea or the lens; otherwise, just that part of the eye is doing all the work. It goes against the grain of conventional wisdom which states that the eye as a whole cannot be reshaped. But the empirical evidences which I have compiled prove otherwise.




Why Ortho C

It is even less risky than wearing a conventional RGP lens. A conventional RGP lens is fitted flatter than the flat K. An ortho C lens is fitted flatter than mid K. Besides, you would only wear the lenses for about 5 minutes.

The tension of the oblique muscles needs to be reduced. The contact lens draw does not stretch the muscles. It solicits a focal point draw to perform that task. Thus the reverse of near-point stress takes place neurologically (or naturally). The crystalline lens and sclera snap back in place. You are not forcing it to take a foreign shape. You are just bringing the eye back to the way it was before it became myopic. It's more risky for the eye to stay in its myopic shape. The risk is progressive myopia and the possibility of detachment.
