Book Description

This volume introduces and explains an eye-opening treatment for correcting nearsightedness and related vision problems naturally and neurologically. The author presents his methodology on neurologically correcting primary refractive errors in the mild and moderate myopic range. Ortho C (or orthoculogy, which is Latin for "correcting the whole eye") is a natural treatment, requiring no alteration to the cornea.

Key features of the book:

• Introduces a neurological and natural treatment for the correction of nearsightedness

• Presents many case studies showing the effectiveness of this treatment, based on the author’s 30+ years of research

• Provides step-by-step instructions for designing lenses to suit the need, determining the sequence of wear, and conducting resistance tests

• Grants readers the right to apply Ortho C to treat any patients with mild and moderate myopia, anisometropia, or compound astigmatism.

John William Yee, DEd, RO, is a Professor in the optical science faculty at Seneca College, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is a Registered Optician (from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Alberta, Canada), and also holds a DEd (Doctor of Education in Psychology) from the University of Liverpool, UK. John Yee has written numerous journal papers on the relationship between neurology and optometry in the treatment of refractive errors. He opened a research facility with the help of some of his students to research the role of neurology in the treatment of nearsightedness (or myopia). He has also written a number of books on different problems: dealing with bullies, shedding excess weight, and understanding the stock market.


“John William Yee has made a major personal effort to design preventive methods for this difficult problem, and these methods are effective. It is always difficult to pioneer an alternative treatment in a field as conservative as optometry, and it takes a bold ‘soul’ to take these first steps. John has made a strong personal commitment to his research. . . . In this book, he offers this knowledge to professionals. . . .  His pioneering development of Ortho C shows promise to effectively prevent nearsightedness at the threshold. His standard of professionalism and his commitment to support the welfare of others sets a high example for all of us.”

- From the Foreword by Otis S. Brown, Author of How to Avoid Nearsightedness, Waynesboro, PA, United States


“A timely publication as the optical professions are currently addressing the explosion of myopia since the 1970s and it is predicted that almost 50% of the world’s population will be myopic by 2050. Today, myopia control is front and center for eye care professionals looking for solutions to control and reverse this condition. They will find that John’s research and subsequent therapy will support their practice and expanding knowledge. John’s dedication to this ‘epidemic’ is an inspiration. I highly recommended it as required reading for all opticians!”
