    Any of you optho guys hear these commercials for "See Clearly." Some sort of cilliary muscle strengthening exercises that supposedly increase visual acuity?

    WTF is that all about?

    Well, one of you guys is going to give me LASIK within the next year or so. My coke bottles aren't cutting it any more.

    I've wondered about this myself, though never took time to investigate. Although it "clear"-ly stinks of fraud, are there any studies definitively disproving this "method?" It seems plausible that such exercises may result in SOME improvement in presbyopic error, given the etiology.
