    Neurological Implications in the Treatment of Myopia by Means of Orthoculogy
    Author(s): John William YeeJohn William Yee

    Myopia, or nearsightedness, is not just a physical deviation of the eye; there is also a neurological deviation. The incorrect neuromuscular message is sent for distant focusing because the visual cortex interprets the myopic eye to be in near focus mode. When an effort is made to bring a distant object into focus, the crystalline lens will tend to “bulge” instead of becoming “flat”, and the eye will tend to elongate instead of remaining spherical. The visual cortex partially or completely overwrites the information received by depth perception: that the object is far away. The culprit behind this misinterpretation is the spasm of the oblique muscles. How much the neurosensory information is altered depends on the tension of the oblique muscles. If those muscles are partial tight, the visual cortex would send a p.. View More»
