This ones for all the opthalmologists out there,  I have heard a lot of fuss about David de Angelis supposed cure for myopia. I his book he proposes if a myopic person reads while wearing strong plus lenses it will force the eye to shorten itself using the ocular rotary muscles therefore putting an end to short sightedness.  What can anyone tell me about his theory, does it work?

And one more question on the side, does an emotropic eye equal 60 or 65 dioptres? It seems no one can decide.
