Most every eye doctor and optometrist truly believe that THEY KNOW BEST… and quite frankly, they have to… The grim alternative is to face a life crises (like I did), and the complete breakdown of their current life and practice.
“William Horatio Bates (December 23, 1860 – July 10, 1931) was an American physician who practiced ophthalmology and developed what became known as the Bates Method for better eyesight, an educational method intended to improve vision by undoing a supposed habitual strain to see. The efficacy of the method is questionable, and his theory that the eye does not focus by changing the power of the lens, but rather by elongating the eyeball, through use of the extraocular oblique muscles, was contradicted by mainstream ophthalmology and optometry of his day and still is today.”
The optometry industry is one thing… but it’s no use blaming your doctor or optometrist for being ignorant. Rather be happy you’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon this quick and reliable way to regain your natural vision abilities.
“If glasses are worn continuously over time the poor vision will generally become worse. Essentially what glasses do is lock the eyes into their refractive state and in order to see through your lenses you have to maintain the poor vision that the lenses are designed to correct.”
Wm H Bates: Perfect Sight Without Glasses 1920
“ Minus lenses (glasses) are the most common approach, yet the least likely to prevent further myopic progression (nearsightedness). Unfortunately, they increase the near point stress that is associated with progression. ”

“The use of compensatory lenses (glasses and contacts) to treat or neutralize the symptoms does not correct the problem. The current education and training of eye care practitioners discourages preventive and remedial treatment.”

In fact, there has been numerous reports of temporary improvement that relapse into even worse conditions a few months after surgery.
And then there is the serious concern about side effects like…
Seeing Halos Around Lights at Nighttime..
Constant Eye Infections..
If you’ve been to remote locations such as the Amazon or have seen T.V. shows that film the way natives live in the wild. You may have seen them how they hunt for food, build tools and make crafts. But, you’ll never see these naturalists squint their eyes, or struggle to focus on their prey.
So, if you didn’t need glasses as a small child and neither do those living in the wild; then why are many people today so dependent on wearing glasses or contacts?
This is the major underlying cause of vision problems, and it soon develops into a vicious spiral… Dr. William H. Bates says:
“It has been demonstrated in thousands of cases that all abnormal action of the external muscles of the eyeball is accompanied by a strain or effort to see, and that with the relief of this strain the action of the muscles becomes normal and all errors of refraction disappear.” – Perfect Sight Without Glasses,
Education is a wonderful thing, but the downside of filling your head with “knowledge” is that it makes less room for being open to alternatives.
All day long use your eyes right. You have just as much time to use your eyes right as you have to use them wrong. It is easier and more comfortable to have perfect sight than to have imperfect sight.

The techniques that are taught in the Bates Method effectively re-establish the normal, natural interaction between eye and mind. To the visually-impaired person, perceiving movement, or letting the eyes feast on colour can seem odd or contrived, but in fact all that is happening is that the mind is learning slowly how to dismantle all its filters.
When the filters drop, suddenly what you have left is the truth of sight: Colour, movement, depth and all the nuances of the visual experience that is, and as it should be, a joy.
And then something amazing happened. Now that I’ve been seeing movement all day long for the past month, suddenly I remembered: this is how I used to see the world when I was a child!
My advise: Do research on your own. Find good eye exercise system. Do it every day. Eat food that benefits your eyes. Use some natural supplements.
