+THE CURE OF IMPERFECT
SIGHT BY TREATMENT WITHOUT GLASSES
BY OPHTHALMOLOGIST WILLIAM H. BATES, M.D.
Advertised in Better Eyesight Magazine, Sept., 1919. Possibly
earlier in other advertisements. Dr. Bates published with Bernarr
MacFadden, a Natural Health teacher in 1918. MacFadden's 1st book;
Articles, began his
experiments, started to cure patient's eyesight naturally around 1886. He
worked in hospitals, colleges treating patients without eyeglasses,
surgery, drugs, trained
doctors in Ophthalmology and Natural Eyesight treatment. This resulted
in a head surgeon (Dr. Roosa, New York Post Graduate Hospital,
Medical School) expelling Dr. Bates. But Dr. Bates and the Bates
Method survived. Dr. Bates was welcome in many hospitals, colleges as
he continued to prove his method works.
Dr. Bates original book. It contains the complete unedited edition.

Eye doctors, surgeons and the optical industry became angry,
fearing they would lose a lot of money as people were being cured
naturally and did not need to purchase eyeglasses, surgery and drugs.
The eye doctors, opticians tried to stop Dr. Bates from curing his
patient's eyes-vision naturally and teaching Natural Eyesight
Improvement to the public. To date; year 2013+, eye doctors,
businesses that prefer to sell eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye drops,

Below are Other Eye Doctors, Scientists That Studied the Human Eye,
Lens, Accommodation and Refraction Of Light Rays;
Ferdinand von Helmholtz, Great
inventor, philosopher, contributed to optics,
electrodynamics, mathematics, physiology, meteorology... He studied the eyes
lens and invented instruments to inspect the inside of the
eye, light rays, retina, lens... 'the
stated his experiments developed the theory that the
eyes lens changes shape to produce accommodation, clear close
vision. Dr. Bates disagreed with this and produced
experiments, stated that the eye changes shape during
accommodation but the lens does not.
the eye lengthens from front to back during accommodation,
'for clear close vision'.
Dr. Bates definitely proved as fact that the outer
eye muscles, 'oblique, recti' when tense alter the eyes shape,
the eyes refraction of light rays, clarity of vision at close
and far distances causing;
unclear vision, astigmatism, cataract, glaucoma,
strabismus and other eye-vision
conditions. When the mind, body and eye
muscles relax, these conditions are reversed, cured.
Ophthalmologist Ferdinand Von Arlt originally studied the
theory that the eye accommodates by lengthening, 'like a
doctors state they have proved that the
lens and eye change
shape during accommodation. The eye lengthens a bit.
Tension in any eye muscle; the outer oblique, recti and inner
ciliary-lens, iris-pupil muscles and even the tear gland and
eyelid-blinking muscles can affect eachother's function, the
eyes function and the clarity of vision. Neck, shoulder muscle
tension, incorrect posture can affect the eye muscles and
clarity of vision.
+STRENGTHENING THE EYES - A New Course
in Scientific Eye Training in 28 Lessons BY BERNARR A. MACFADDEN.
1925. His first book;
+Strong Eyes - How weak
Eyes Can Be Strengthened And Spectacles Discarded
was published in 1901. Possibly
the first person or one of the first people to write a book
about Natural Eyesight Improvement. Good book but needed some
improvement. Contains a few practices I do not recommend. In
later years, MacFadden with the help of Dr. Bates wrote a new
book with many changes, improvements; The
1918, 1924-1925 book editions of 'STRENGTHENING THE EYES' is a result of
Bernarr MacFadden studying Ophthalmologist William H. Bates
practice of Natural Eyesight Improvement. They advertised natural eyesight training,
the Bates Method together in
Physical Culture ; A
fitness, natural health, food, body building magazine. In this
magazine and other newspapers... Ophthalmologist Bates and
MacFadden advertised their 'Strengthening the Eyes' Training
Course and book. This and Dr. Bates Medical Articles around
1886 started the Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement
revolution. Bernarr probably received much in person
training from Dr. Bates when they spent this time together. Dr. Bates name was on the 1918-1925 book as
author with MacFadden. Later book editions were authored only
by MacFadden. Did Dr. Bates want to change, improve some of the
practices in the book? Or maybe he preferred to place all his
attention on his projects; Better Eyesight Magazines, Medical
articles, Clinic work. (Clearsight Publishing Co., author
of this website has added the Original and Modern Bates Method
training to MacFadden's book; changed, corrected some
practices, treatments and added new practices while
maintaining the original text, pictures, practices 'entire
MacFadden's practice of looking at 'shifting on' small
parts of a close object (pencil), then looking beyond it to a
far object on the horizon; looking at the far object's small
parts, then back to the pencil, then far, then pencil...
improves the eyesight quickly to 20/20 and clearer.
Bernarr MacFadden was one of the first Natural Health,
Physical Fitness teachers. Sadly, he died in 1955 from a
urinary tract infection after refusing standard medical
doctor's treatment. Many people have improved their
vision with the Bates Method. It is hidden by the medical
community due to its success, competition; prevents the need
for eyeglasses, surgery, lasik.., drugs. The Bates Method
works if the patient will take the time to learn and apply it.
A large portion of the population seem to prefer eyeglasses or
surgery; a quick fix with no studying, practice. Glasses,
contacts, surgery are addictive, maintain and increase
eye-vision problems, cataract, detached retina... Done
correct, The Bates Method becomes automatic; practice is not
+EL USO NATURAL DE LA VISION (THE NATURAL USE OF VISION) By R. RUIZ ARNAU, M.D.
Berkley, CA Optometry Library;
successfully taught Dr. Bates Method. From Dr. Bates in
Better Eyesight, Nov., 1924;
"This book should appeal to
Spanish-speaking people, because it contains numerous
demonstrations of the truth which make it possible to cure
imperfect sight by treatment without glasses. In the magazine,
"Better Eyesight," of May, 1920, is an article by Dr. Arnau
with the title "My Headaches" in which he describes at length
how he was cured of chronic headaches and imperfect sight by
treatment without glasses. As a result of his cure he has
become able to give relief to his patients. The author's
most important contribution is his claim that the true use of
the ciliary muscle is not to increase the curvature of the
lens when the eye is focused for reading at the near point,
but just the opposite: The ciliary muscle prevents any change
of form in the curvature of the crystalline lens.
He has written a great deal about mind strain as the real and
only cause of defective eye-sight. He discusses the
unconscious movements of the vegetative functions of the body,
circulation, respiration and the constant mental shifting as
entirely in accord with the new ideas of Einstein, Korbzyski
and others. The Tachorthoscope was discovered by
Dr. Arnau. It is an apparatus for the treatment of patients
who are not benefited promptly by other methods.
He has also investigated the use of music by which some
patients find an easy way to obtain a short swing through the
auditory memory." Here's another Spanish book on Scribd;

C. S. Price, of London, England, will visit Dr. Bates around
the latter part of January. He is planning to discuss with Dr.
Bates the best methods which are employed for the cure of
imperfect sight without glasses. The spread of Dr. Bates'
method in England is largely due to Capt. Price's enthusiasm
and success in helping others. There are now two clinics, and
a Better Eyesight League in England, all reporting favorable
results. Capt. Price has been the guest of Dr. Bates for
several weeks. Dr. Bates wishes to announce that he finds

+HELP YOURSELF TO BETTER SIGHT
+A QUICK GUIDE TO BETTER VISION; HOW TO HAVE GOOD EYESIGHT WITHOUT GLASSES BY MARGARET CORBETT
Margaret Corbett is a Natural Eyesight improvement teacher that
worked with and was trained as a Bates teacher by Dr. Bates. She improved famous writer Aldous Huxley's eyesight,
saved him from blindness. She improved the eyesight of many people, including pilots and other
people in the military.
Eye doctors, the optical industry tried to stop Margaret Corbett from teaching the public how to improve their
eyesight naturally and stop use of eyeglasses. They accused her of practicing optometry without a license. They
brought her to court. Aldous Huxley and other cured Bates Method
students were witnesses, testified for
Margaret Corbett. Huxley proved that she improved his eyesight. She won the case and improved the eyesight of people that were in
the courtroom that day.
Huxley wrote the book;
'The Art of Seeing'
to describe the Bates Method and how his eyesight was cured. See
his pictures on the right > ; top picture - strong, thick eyeglasses,
unclear eyesight, partial blindness
before Natural Eyesight Improvement.
Bottom picture - without
eyeglasses, he has clear eyesight after his eyesight was cured by
the Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement.
Critics state that later in life, Huxley was giving a speech and
could not read part of a page without putting on glasses. People
must realize that it is normal for the clarity of vision to
fluctuate, especially when under pressure, a bit nervous giving a
speech knowing 'certain people' will be hoping his vision won't be
perfect. Aldous Huxley had a major eye problem, was almost completely blind before
treatment from Margaret Corbett. Margaret may have published
For many years, since eyeglasses were invented and sold to the public, the optical industry and eye
doctors that prefer to hide the truth about Natural Eyesight Improvement and to prescribe/sell eyeglasses, eye surgery and
drugs have tried to stop Natural Eyesight Improvement teachers from teaching the public how to cure unclear eyesight
and other eye problems naturally without glasses, surgery and drugs.
Bates teachers are often threatened with lawsuits,
fines, imprisonment by organized eye doctors, surgeons. Eyeglasses are addictive, lead to prescriptions for
stronger and stronger lenses, cause and increase mental strain, eye muscle tension, eyestrain, vision impairment,
abnormal eye, cornea, lens shape, cause increased pressure, tension on and in the eye, cornea, lens, retina, optic
nerve, capillaries and all parts of the eye resulting in; unclear eyesight, astigmatism, crossed/wandering eyes, cataracts,
detached retina, macula degeneration, glaucoma and other eye problems. Eye doctors prescribe laser and other cornea
surgeries which are very harmful to the eyes and result in unclear eyesight,
blindness and other eye problems after
the surgery. Lifelong sales of eyedrops, other treatments and

of Natural Eyesight Improvement to the modern public. Tom is the
first modern teacher that has not hidden Dr. Bates

Ophthalmologist Bates work and hid his magazines so the public
could not learn for free, have complete training. The
publisher of this website obtained clearer than 20/20 eyesight at close
and far distances as a result of taking a Bates Natural Vision Improvement course from Mr. Quackenbush when he taught
in San Francisco, California. See Thomas Quackenbush's website for free

helped. I like many of Meir's movements, postures and some of his eyesight training
(I disagree with one and
a few other of his eyesight practices. Example; covering the eyes central field with
a black paper. This is directly against Dr. Bates teaching of
central-fixation. Central-fixation, 'central vision' with
normal, completely free eye shifting is necessary for clear
vision, healthy eyes and it cures glaucoma, cataract, macular
degeneration, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, and other eye-vision problems
and keeps the central perfectly clear, better than 20/20 vision
and the peripheral at its maximum normal function. Using the peripheral field to see the object of visual attention with
causes glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration,
myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and other eye-vision problems.)
The wish-request below goes out to all
teachers, I'm not ranting solely on Meir's practice. Meir;
your popular, have power. If you read this, please consider it and
be the leader;
Meir and many other teacher's
prices for in person training and teacher certification are too
high. I wish Meir and others would give
free training to the blind. I called him, asked about this and
they said they do not help the blind or anyone for free.
Just an introductory lecture,
that's limited and mainly for advertisement). I also asked if a
person that's going blind, wearing strong -6 glasses should stop
wearing the glasses. They said NO, to keep wearing the glasses.
This is very bad advice. Eyeglasses, especially strong
prescriptions cause detached retina, other retina problems, macula
degeneration, cataract, glaucoma, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism
and most all eye-vision problems. Wearing the glasses can lead to
retina detachment, blindness. Stopping the use of eyeglasses
will help the retina heal and reverse blindness, other eye
also told me they cannot say if Meir's method is Ophthalmologist Bates'
Method. Said; 'that question has to
be asked to Meir in person only'. (deceptive) A
lot of the blind people Meir and staff reject contact me for help.
It's so easy to teach them; tell them to stop wearing the eyeglasses and give them
the basic ten steps
in our free e-books and Dr. Bates Book, Better Eyesight Magazines.
Many have regained their vision with these simple practices and
some, including senior citizens on pensions are now teaching,
curing others for free.
Glasses prevent normal eye, brain
function. When glasses are removed, the eyes activate Natural Eyesight Improvement
automatically, 'on their own', the normal visual system function. Dishonest
teachers hide this fact.
blind at birth, had cataracts, eye operations that caused lens
injury and other eye problems. He cured his eyesight naturally,
can now see clear to drive without glasses and helps his students
obtain clear eyesight. His sight is not 20/20 clear but his
achievement, level is amazing considering his past eye conditions.
He states The Bates Method cured his sight. I wish he would give
more credit to Dr. Bates by preserving and providing Dr. Bates
Books, Better Eyesight Magazines which are free-public domain and
contain entire Natural Eyesight Improvement training. Please teach
the entire and true, correct method. I wish Meir and other
teachers would not alter, corrupt Dr. Bates Method in order to
make it 'their own method' so they can charge a high price.
teachers that use these underhanded practices; PLEASE change your
heart, stop corrupting Dr. Bates great method. Teach it correct,
for a honest price and set up free help for the the blind and low vision persons.
At least give 1 day a week, and 30 min to 1 hour a day in person
or Skype, Phone. Give the gift Heaven gave
you to others. All Dr. Bates books, magazines are free here on this
website. Give them free to the
public when you train people. Don't lie to us,
saying your method is superior to Dr. Bates. That's just an excuse
to charge high prices. Dr. Bates method is true and free.
I prefer Thomas Quackenbush for
student and teacher certification training. Tom provides all
Dr. Bates magazines, a book, complete original and modern training
for a good price.

Warning; Choose a Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement
Teacher, Books, Forum-Group Carefully!
Natural Eyesight Improvement
has been in existence before Dr. Bates discovered it.
Eye doctors and the public have used it in the
1800's and earlier.
Sailors have used it for hundreds of years to navigate the sea by looking at the stars in
the sky, flow of ocean water, landmarks, birds, fish migration, wind... and lighthouses. Natural Eyesight Improvement is the
function of the eyes 'visual system'
and has been in existence since the beginning of fish, humans,
animals on this planet, the evolution/development of the eye.
Sunlight is the main cause of the development of the eye and it
maintains the eyes health, function. Even trees, plants have a visual instinct.
They react, are drawn to, grow healthy due to sunlight.
Practice only the Bates
Method. It is the true natural eyesight method.
Method teaches; relaxation
of the mind, body, eye muscles, eyes, neck, shoulders, correct posture, correct
relaxed, natural vision habits (the normal function of the
eyes, visual system; shifting, central-fixation 'centralizing', memory,
imagination...), tests/improvement of accommodation, convergence,
un-accommodation, divergence, movement, left and right brain hemisphere activation and integration,
color treatment, full spectrum sunlight (sunning) and other natural activities that produce 20/20 and
eyesight at all distances, close and far, day
and night. The
Bates method returns the eyes, eye muscles, brain, body 'entire visual system' to normal function, maintaining clear eyesight
automatically, on its
Bates Method does not consist of
repetitive, forceful eye exercises, eye stretches...
Switching, shifting on close and far objects, 'kind of an
exercise' is done in a relaxed way,
integrating Dr. Bates natural practices.
Many eyesight improvement
teachers (businesses) claim to teach the Bates Method but they do not.
They teach tension inducing eye exercises
and other unnatural treatments that cause mental strain, eyestrain, eye muscle tension, headaches,
neck tension, unclear vision and
other side effects.
are not natural and do not produce
perfect and permanent clear eyesight. Avoid these teachers.
Avoid teachers that
refuse to give free help for advanced eye, vision conditions,
honest teacher will help you free of charge, has years of
experience, written one or more books and provides their book and Dr. Bates
Better Eyesight Magazines, books (complete training) for a honest,
affordable price and free when they can afford to. Clear eyesight, Healthy eyes is the birthright
of ALL people. (Dr.
Bates always helped the blind, people needing vision improvement.
He charged a low price and often trained free in his New York City
the crooks charging hundreds of dollars for classes, thousands for
teacher training. Note; if a teacher will not give the full training
to help a blind, partially blind person; they are dishonest. Avoid
them. Many people with retina conditions, cataract, glaucoma,
partially or full blind, advanced myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism,
cross eye... have contacted me for free help after teachers have taken their money and not given complete training,
ask for more money, have given incorrect training or refused to give
free training. It is cruel, inhuman to allow a person to go blind
because they have little money.
If a teacher does
not provide Ophthalmologist Bates Better Eyesight Magazines,
Books, Medical Articles and his wife Emily Lierman's book; then
the teacher is withholding the true, entire method. Also avoid teachers
charging hundreds of dollars for Dr. Bates Better Eyesight
free in the Copyright office and some Optometry, Ophthalmology
public access college libraries.)
I notice many teachers'
books teach tracing on objects with the nose-feather incorrectly; they
have the person looking in space near but not on the object. This is
diffusion, the opposite of central-fixation. Their pictures should
show the nose-feather, 'central field' tracing line - - - - - directly ON
the edge of the object or part of the object you are tracing on. Not off to the side
Example; looking at, tracing on the
edge of the roof of a house. Trace on the edge. Do NOT trace on the
sky away from the edge. See the Nosefeather Chapter;
Even some teachers that are
certified to teach by famous, very good teachers become corrupt;
after they get their diploma, they then alter the Bates method,
make it unnatural, teach it wrong and speak against their teacher.
They do this so the method they teach is different, they can call
it 'their own' and charge a high price, direct students away from
the honest teacher that certified them. One of my teachers and I
experienced this. I have certificates for completing a variety of
classes, have written books, created videos and trained many
people for free. Some students I have trained, even a few of the
previously blind; once cured they then go against me after they
set up their own business selling what I taught
and certified teachers and certified want to-bes on the Internet
Forums have obtained clear eyesight from my free books and Skype,
phone training but are now putting my books, teaching down as they
try to pull in students from the Internet and charge them $150.00+
Many Teachers Teach Things I Disagree With, That are Unnatural,
Wrong, Unsafe; are Not the True Original Bates Method;
Teachers, websites, discussion groups that advise, sell, teach; Lasik and other
Cornea Eye Laser... Surgeries, use of
Contact Lenses or Contact Lens Treatments
to force the cornea/eye to change
shape (Ortho-keratology, Orthoculogy-Ortho C... This can injure the
cornea. ), the harmful
Relieving Eyeglasses Method (It CAUSES stress, cataract, detached
tension-dysfunction, eye and vision impairment...),
use of Eyeglasses, Bifocals,
Multi-Section and Mono-Vision Glasses, Sunglasses,
Tinted/Colored Eyeglass Lenses, Bifocals.., Autostereograms
Fusion Exercises, 3-Cups, Magic Eyes Pictures...)
that can impair the eye muscles, eyes movement (Read more below.),
Eye Muscle Surgery for
Crossed/Wandering Eyes (Strabismus), Eye Muscle Stretching
(forcing the eyes to look, stay far left, right, up... and keeping
the head in the opposite direction), Chiropractic and other
unnatural methods. Try to avoid implanted eyeglass
prescriptions for myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, bifocal... in cataract
surgery artificial lens replacement in the eyes; it traps you with an
eyeglass prescription that cannot be changed-removed without more surgery.
Read our entire Warnings, Directions;
laser Surgery is similar; the Lasik places a prescription in the
cornea. More cornea surgery to change it can result in blindness.
unnatural treatments, exercises, surgeries are not the Bates Method.
They cause cornea injury, strabismus, impair eye muscle, eye
function and movement, impair the clarity of vision, cause
astigmatism, conical cornea, cataracts,
glaucoma, detached retina,
other eye-vision problems
and can result in blindness.
I do not endorse, advise use of lasik, Artificial 3-D eye
exercises, Plus Lens method, Contact Lenses, any dangerous, un-natural methods. They lead to vision, eye health impairment, blindness! Avoid
all unnatural methods. See the website for more unnatural
methods, eyeglasses to avoid. Choose a
Method Behavioral Optometrist, Ophthalmologist only if an eye
doctor is needed. No cornea surgery, no contact lenses, no plus
A few vision improvement teachers receive $ 'kickbacks' from Optometrists, Ophthalmologists,
Opticians, Chiropractors, other businesses by referring students
to them through links on their website.
Avoid teachers that endorse contacting
their 'affiliate' Behavioral Optometrists or
other eye doctors, teachers that sell, teach the harmful practices
listed 'as to avoid' on this page and website. See the
Chiropractic Warning page;
Contact lenses are never a perfect fit
for the cornea because the eye-cornea naturally change shape, and
often. This occurs more as the eyes, cornea return to normal
healthy shape with use of Natural Eyesight Improvement. The
contacts will not fit; they can easily scrape, injure, infect and
scar the cornea. Some teachers advise, allow use of contact lenses, strong
eyeglasses and other harmful methods because they want endorsement
from eye doctors to help sell their training, books and the
doctors give them affiliate $ for referrals.
True Bates Method schools,
teachers teach that only reduced weaker
eyeglass lenses, usually 20/40 clarity (no
are used and only if needed for driving, safety at work... as vision is improving with
the Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement. Example; a
person with -3 eyeglasses for myopia will reduce to -2.50 or -2.
The eyechart will show about 20/40 clarity with glasses on. Then
continue to reduce until seeing clear without glasses. A person
with +3 eyeglasses for presbyopia will reduce to +2.50 or +2 and
continue to reduce. Most people can do without glasses when
the vision is clear at 20/50. Some at 20/200 or more unclear
prefer to go without glasses. No glasses=eyesight improves faster.
(Always stay legal, safe for driving, work, hobbies...) Eyeglasses
are discontinued permanently as soon as possible. It is best
to try and stop use of eyeglasses immediately. If the prescription
is strong, the eyes contain cataract, detached retina, retina,
any eye health condition ; STOP
WEARING EYEGLASSES! Eyeglasses cause and increase cataract,
detached retina, torn, leaking blood vessels, capillaries in the
eye, retina and most all eye health problems. Diet, injuries,
drugs, chemicals, sinus sprays are some other causes.
Some teachers, businesses that sell books, courses on Natural Eyesight Improvement
sell vitamins, nutrients for the eyes. The health of the liver,
kidneys, gall bladder, spleen, digestion... affect vision, the
herbs, vitamins, minerals... can be poisonous, impair body
chemistry, hormones, health.
sell herbs, ingredients in their eye vitamins, formulas that have
side effects, can be toxic, even impair the eyes health and
clarity of vision. They do not warn about this.
Healthy food, good nutrition has a major impact on the clarity of vision, health of
the body and eyes. Most vitamins, nutrients... are beneficial. Read the Nutrition Chapter on
cleareyesight-batesmethod.info/id21.html and avoid products containing
bilberry leaf, eyebright, sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, nitrate and other unhealthy herbs, preservatives, ingredients, chemicals.
Sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, MSG, Hydrolyzed... corn, soy, proteins.., aspirin,
aspirin type herbs can cause temporary migraine headaches with flashing lights, blind spots
in the visual field, impaired memory, a variety of health problems. Read the labels, check all the ingredients.
Aspirin causes kidney damage, other health impairment. It's
addictive. Acetaminophen, NSAID's cause kidney, liver, joint
damage, heart attacks, impairs eye health, vision and is the cause
of many health problems.
Drug store and also many natural eye drops contain chemicals, toxins.
When buying bilberry ask for pure organic bilberry
fruit, the berries only, no leaf. The berries are excellent, very healthy. Pure bilberry fruit improves eye health and day,
night vision. It is an old WW2 Pilots food for clear night vision when flying. They ate it as bilberry jam, no added sugar.
True bilberry contains a lot of dark red/purple juice inside the berry and the skin. It temporarily stains the skin when the
berry is compressed in the fingers, as a blackberry or wild blueberry does. This juice and entire berry is healthy for the
eyes, retina. Lutein and a other nutrients, carrots, spinach... are also beneficial.
(I am not completely against bilberry
leaf but have never tried it and I have heard it can be
Many Natural Vision Improvement websites have guestbooks, discussion forums, blogs where people can post
subjects on the Bates method, Natural Vision Improvement, ask questions and learn from others that have improved their vision. Beware of some Natural Vision Teachers that
'hang out' on Groups, Forums giving only limited help; they often are
trying to lure people into taking private lessons for $100.00 to
200.00+ per hour. $300.00+ seminars. Most
of the writers on these forums are honest, very helpful, but there are a few persons that go on these forums giving the
impression that they are strict Bates Method people, though in reality they are providing links to websites that
sell eyeglasses, surgery (eye doctors, lasik plus lens method...) and other harmful products, treatments. A few people state incorrect, harmful advice
and/or hide Bates Method information. They try to make it seem difficult, complicated,
state that only a highly intellect personality can understand it
and be successful. This is false. They corrupt the method with
unnatural alternations so they can make it 'their own method' and sell
it for a high price. Holding back information=sales of more hourly
training. The Bates Method is easy, simple, a 'Do It Yourself' method.
Children learn it, are cured and become effective teachers.
Many people obtain clear eyesight by only removing their glasses,
learning to relax and shift. A quick 10-30 minute lesson.
Be careful downloading free
software from websites. A popular Better Eyesight
Magazine website gives free software for the computer screen, eyesight but it acts
as a virus, slows the computer.., produces pop-ups asking for money.
Some teachers link to it on their websites and advertise in their
books. It's hard to remove, hides in the computer. You can use
Trend Micro's 'HiJack This', Norton tools,
AVG... or find a good repair guy to remove it.
Some websites, software contain
spyware, hacker viruses. The magazines on
that website have many spelling mistakes and missing magazine issues.
It's been years of people, including myself offering the owner help to
fix the magazines but he does not reply. There may be a new 'secret
owner' that prefers the magazines to stay incomplete, mis-spelled so
they can sell high priced complete copies. Or the owner just moved on,
does not care to work on this.
Eyesight Improvement, Bates Method Groups, Forums, Discussion
websites and eyesight book reviews, comments on Amazon, Indie...
; Avoid Google, Search Engine... Advertisements for Lasik and
other eye surgery, unnatural vision courses, eyeglasses contact
lenses, eyedrops, some vitamins, herbs... Most Bates Method group owners place a block on these type of ads
but it's hard to all of keep of them from sneaking through as the
businesses often change the words in their ads. Ads pay for
the website but it's a risk.
More Warnings, Descriptions For Artificial 3-D
Magic Eyes Pictures;
I do not teach, advise Artificial 3-D Fusion Repetitive
'Autostereograms, Magic Eyes pictures'.
Some teachers, even a few of the good ones listed on this page teach this but it can impair the eyes convergence, divergence,
accommodation, un-accommodation, the eye muscles
and eyes movement and cause crossed,
wandering eyes, double vision in normal eyes and more so if there is a slight or advanced strabismus or other eye, medical
problem, neck injury, tension, mis-aligned skull bones and other
conditions. The Artificial 3-D exercises can make a slight
worse. Artificial 3-D Fusion exercises are not necessary to obtain
clear vision, normal eye movement. It was not taught by
Ophthalmologist Bates. There are plenty of other activities,
methods to gain clear, balanced vision, coordinated eye movement in Dr. Bates books,
Better Eyesight Magazine. Dr. Bates, The Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement teaches different
activities, natural ones with true 3-D (3-Dimensional) vision for removing strabismus; crossed, wandering eyes,
amblyopia. See the Artificial 3-D
Fusion warning page;
and in our books. See
the picture on the right > Mini 3-D Warning Example; Staring
at the pen placed in front of the 2 red, blue circles to create an
illusion of a 3rd circle. This strains the eyes, brain, eye
muscles. Dr. Bates has a extra similar but different treatment
that corrects strabismus. See
treatments for squint, crossed,
his book 'Perfect Sight Without Glasses' and the Magazines.
Some Behavioral Optometrists/Ophthalmologists teach forms of these Artificial 3-D Fusion Exercises
a special way for each individual
person's Strabismus condition with beneficial results. It should
be used for Strabismus (Crossed/Wandering eyes) ONLY. Ask a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist,
Ophthalmologist for guidance if, you have tried the Bates Method
FIRST and still need additional help. Follow your Doctor's
directions. Do not copy it from a book, website. The doctor's
exercise can help correct imperfect convergence, divergence,
strabismus, fusion when applied correct (if the Bates Method alone does not correct the condition
first). It must be practiced with the Guidance of a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist/Ophthalmologist. The
Eye Doctor will teach the student which exercises, activities are
to be done for specific conditions, distances that the patients eye
movement, convergence, divergence, fusion... needs improvement. The doctor may have the student practice with the 3-D
image card placed at a variety of close, middle, far distances, fusing the two images into a 3rd by looking at a variety of
different close distances/objects before the card and/or a variety of different far distances/objects beyond the card. Distance
of the card may be varied. Spacing between the two images may be at a variety of widths. Merging, fusing images that are further
apart being accomplished with advanced fusion training
if needed. How many, length of time each or only some of these activities,
routines are practiced is determined by the student’s condition; divergence or convergence impairment, degree
of impairment and other eye conditions. This is NOT a one size
fits all, just carelessly throw it in a book, webpage for everyone
treatment! Only a professional can prescribe a safe,
correct, precise routine. Practicing too much at one distance,
width, one activity or for the wrong distance… can impair
divergence, convergence and cause other eye, vision problems. Some
teachers place the Artificial 3-D in their books to attract
attention, seem professional. They should warn about the side
Most Natural Vision teachers do not teach this the
correct way, do not warn about the side effects of doing it wrong because they cannot prescribe for every individual person's
condition in the class, in books and usually do not know the entire, correct Behavioral Optometry treatment. Even a Behavioral
Optometrist, Ophthalmologist needs the best training and experience. They also need to learn the Bates Method of Natural Eyesight
Improvement so they can give their patient an option; true natural (Bates Method) treatment or, if needed, try the artificial
3-D and be sure it's done correct,
and apply both methods; the Bates Method and the professional
Artificial 3-D. Accommodation,
un-accommodation of the ye, lens work-occur with the eyes convergence, divergence, fusion. All are affected, improved or impaired, when the
exercises are done correct or incorrect.
Artificial 3-D exercises do produce a natural 3-D effect created by the eyes, brain,
left and right hemispheres, visual cortex. Seeing the correct fused image indicates
the brain, eyes are working together, but; I call the exercises Artificial 3-D because it is not the normal way the person
uses the eyes to see an object clear. The Artificial 3-D has the
person staring into space before or beyond two objects placed in
the peripheral field, merging these two into a 3rd object which is
an illusion of being in the central field, when in reality it is 2
areas/objects of the peripheral field combined. So; the person is
using the peripheral vision to see with. This prevents Dr. Bates
natural practice of central-fixation (true central vision).
Shifting is also prevented. If any eye movement occurs it is an
unnatural movement. True completely natural 3-D vision for healthy eyes, brain function, clear vision
occurs when looking directly at the object of visual attention, directly at the distance the object is at,
in the true central field, the mind, eyes 'mental-visual
that object, distance and the eyes visual attention is moving
part to part
upon the object. See Dr. Bates book 'Perfect Sight
Without Glasses' and 'Better Eyesight Magazine'.
Try the Bates Method first. Relaxation, central-fixation, shifting, switching
close and far, bead string, pens
in a row, strabismus swings, memory, imagination, natural movement, left and right brain hemisphere activation and integration,
color treatment and other natural methods are most always all that is needed.
