Curricular Consideration

A big thanks to Jason Robey for sending me the email below. I can’t think of a better “curricular consideration” for attending our upcoming vision course!

On Saturday I went to the optometrist for my annual eye exam. Below is the conversation that the optometrist and I had while he did the exam:

Opt: What are you doing right?
Me: Exercises
Opt: But you always exercise right?
Me: Yea but these exercises are different

Opt: Well whatever you are doing has improved your astigmatism
Me: Breathing exercises
Opt: I have never seen anyone with an astigmatism as bad as yours get better. I was actually concerned you may have a disease that causes an astigmatism to rapidly get worse. Yours is getting better. I am going to back down the power. Whatever you are doing keep doing it. I am not sure how you are reshaping your own eye.

Then we talked about the website and he is going to look into the PRI Vision website
