Reducing lens diopters?  Don't try any of this at home.  This is all highly experimental, unapproved, and definitely requiring research and reading and critical thinking.  And still, you're totally doing a thing you're probably not supposed to.  Especially for anyone going "but what are  the stepz, bro", this is definitely and absolutely not for you.

This is a hardcore episode.  All the things you can do with endmyopia and understanding biology and stimulus and diopters, if you really have a complex eyeball situation to sort out.

As always, no doctors and no medical advice here.

Dr. Morris Waxler is the former Chief of Surgical and Diagnostics Branch, Division of Opthalmic Devices at the FDA.  He explains in great and lurid detail how you are entirely on your own, taking changes on LASIK.  This is stuff none of the surgeons will tell you, and you probably really want to know before going in for this procedure.

A little rough audio on my end, since ... stuck on the back of a tiny island.  Didn't bring proper gear.  Perhaps still worth it though, for Andie's story!
