To change the way people think is extremely difficult, especially when the new approach is counter-intuitive. An open mind with the ability to re-evaluate old ideas is the basis for true intellectual curiosity and scientific advancement. Read this textbook with an open mind and learn how visual function can be improved.

Ronald A. Schachar, M.D., Ph.D.

I became a convert to Dr. Schachar's brilliant theory of accommodation in February 2000 after taking a Presby Corp seminar on the surgical reversal of presbyopia (SRP). So enamored was I with this quantum leap in technology, one week later I became the first ophthalmologist in the world to undergo SRP. I now see well at near as I had expected. Three other ophthalmologists,
an optometrist and two opticians have undergone this procedure. This is a comprehensive textbook about the theory of accommodation and the practical aspects of the SRP.
