My Theory on Correcting Nearsightedness       

                                                                                                                                                       

          The conventional explanation on how near and distant objects come into focus is based on the theory of Hemholtz. It stipulates that only the crystalline lens brings about proper focusing. The lens is regulated by the ciliary muscle. A near image comes into focus when the ciliary muscle tenses up to entice the crystalline lens to “bulge”. An image far away comes into focus when the ciliary muscle relaxes to allow the crystalline lens to “flatten” out (Caban, 1993). It is not necessary to rely on another muscle or on another part of the eye to assist in this function. Changing from near to distant focusing and vice versa is attributed to the crystalline lens—not the sclera.

         But then why is the myopic (or nearsighted) eyeball elongated? Myopia (or nearsightedness) was due to a function of vision. It did not happened when we kept our eyes shut. Isn’t it possible that when we became nearsighted, another model kicks in to determine how focusing takes place in order to allow the eyeball to change shape? And what activated that model?

         The main culprit are the oblique muscles. If the tension is too tight, due to near-point stress, then it triggers a different neurological message. It overrides the message that is supposed to be activated due to depth perception (of a distant object). Thus to reverse your myopia, you have to reinstate the correct neuromotor message. 

         You would accomplish this by means of ortho C. You would wear a plain RGP (or rigid gas permeable) lens for only 2 minutes.

                                                                                                                                                        

A Breakthrough Method in Correcting Nearsightedness

         The procedure to correct nearsightedness based on a plain “flexible” pair of contact lenses (without any prescription) which you only wear for about 2 minutes—and you do not have to wear them everyday. The goal is to wear them once every 2 or 3 weeks for about 4 minutes--the time it takes to complete the drill. For mild and moderate myopia, the wearing schedule is less. It would be once every month or so. The lenses are for therapeutic purposes only—not a visual aid.  The purpose of performing the drill regularly is to prevent progressive myopia which is just as important as treating the existing myopia.

         Although the reversal process sounds mechanical, the ortho C lenses will improve your vision naturally in the sense that it is a neurological process. Physiotherapy is not involved. The myopic part of the eye is not overcorrected but reversed. There is no reshaping by cutting or lasering. There are no implants involved, such as implanting a “ring” onto your cornea (cornea ring implant), or implanting a lens between your natural lens and the iris (intraocular lens implant), or even implanting another cornea onto your existing cornea. And there are no “retainer” lenses to wear once your vision improves—as in the case of orthokeratology or “ortho K”, as it’s also sometimes called, which is Latin for “correcting the cornea” (by “flattening” it out).

         Unlike other intrusive methods for correcting nearsightedness on the market, the curvature of the cornea will not be altered. Do not confuse it with an existing method called orthokeratology (which is Latin for correcting the cornea), or “ortho K”, as it is sometimes called in optical parlance. It attempts to correct your refractive error by “flattening” out the cornea with a very “flat” contact lens without attending to the myopic shape of the lens of your eye or the eyeball. But ortho C does not “flatten” out the curvature of the cornea; its curvature does not change, and this can be verified by taking another K reading (or keratometer reading) after your vision improves.

         Perhaps a good term for the procedure is orthoculogy (Latin for “correcting the whole eye”) or ortho C, for short. The whole eye, instead of just a part of it, strives to be corrected naturally during the reversal process. Thus the burden of your visual improvement is not placed on any specific part of the eye—such as the lens. When the reshaping of the cornea, lens, and eyeball together causes the focal point to “shift”, it generates less of an “effort to see” and thus less fluctuation.

         The myopic structure of your eye—which usually involves the eyeball, the lens, the cornea, and the muscles—has a tendency to reverse back to its premyopic shape without surgery. Certain muscles have to be relaxed, other muscles have to be stretched, and others have to be tightened. All this activity takes place at the same time indirectly by reinstating the correct neuromuscular message. The reversal process occurs simultaneously, and that is how you became myopic: certain muscles were not relaxed, others became too tight, and others lost their tensile strength—the deterioration all took place at the same time.

 

Vision Statement

         I never did intended to monopolize my findings and then charge a ridiculous price for the treatment; but I did want to patent it to prevent others from doing just that. I abide by the ethics of Frederick Grant Banting who discovered insulin. Any invention that proposes a cure should be affordable, it should be available to everyone, it should not be inferior, and it should not be monopolized by a corporation.
