“And as always, I must say that there isn’t any malice involved. Just as psychiatrist prescribe psychosomatic drugs like candy, and surgeons sell invasive procedures, so does the optometry field dispense diopter correction with total abandon. It’s the whole paradigm of health that is broken. The industry should never be run as a for-profit enterprise. Once you combine health and profit, this is exactly what happens.
Lastly, don’t follow my lead in terms of tone. There is no benefit to confronting or personally attacking anyone for their profession –– the problem goes far beyond the optometrist, the school, and the lens maker. Everybody does the best they can, inside the broken system that is health for profit.”
