PILOT STUDY – A PROPOSAL FOR TRUE PREVENTION.
Subject: A Study Proposal for Pilots – who have the desire and need to clear their Snellen from 20/50 to 20/20. There would be a refractive change of one diopter, relative to the control group.

This is a highly significant study. Effectively the children wearing a plus – did not become more nearsighted. This study suggests that more systematic plus-wearing, will result in complete and effective prevention.
You can down-load this proposal, and review the parameters of this study for further analysis and discussion. It is based on the a successful prevention study conducted by Dr. Francis Young. The result of his tests were highly-significant over the five years of their study.
The value of Standard Deviation (Sigma) is taken for this population of eyes. A formal study of threshold-myopia prevention, would have a value of 0.4 diopters as the calculated Sigma.
What is remarkable is that the “plus group” does not go down, while the group with no “preventive plus” goes down at a rate of -0.66 to -0.50 diopters per each year in school. This is consistent for ALL age groups and the probability is calculated as less-than 1,000,000 to 1. This science suggests that if a wise person began the wearing of the plus, when at 20/50 (about -1.0 diopters), and is consistent, could get back to 20/20, and a positive refractive state.
Here is the original data from the Oakley-Young study.
This statistical data shows the profound effect that a lens has on the refractive status of all eyes.
