Bates worked in hospitals, colleges treating patients without
eyeglasses, surgery, drugs. He cured other doctor’s eyesight, taught
them Ophthalmology and Natural Eyesight Improvement. This resulted in
the head surgeon (Dr. Roosa, New York Post Graduate Hospital, Medical

function are fact, then expelling Dr. Bates after Dr. Bates proved his
discoveries are a fact and the natural practice is effective. (Read

Bates and the Bates Method survived. He was welcome in many hospitals,
colleges as he continued to prove his method works. He opened his own
office, clinic in New York City. Thousands of people were cured of
unclear eyesight, cataract, glaucoma and other conditions. Often Dr.

True Stories of Dr. Bates’ patient’s, treatments.
Better Eyesight Magazine describes how Dr. Bates and Emily Lierman/Bates
and other teachers, doctors applied Natural Eyesight Improvement, the
Bates Method to cure patients of unclear vision, ‘myopia, farsight,
presbyopia, astigmatism’, crossed-wandering eyes, cataracts, glaucoma,
blindness, conical cornea, cornea scars, retinitis pigmentosa and many
other eye-vision problems, disease without use of eyeglasses, surgery,
drugs. The true method, it’s origin. They teach how they did it
and how to do it yourself. This proves the Bates Method works,
is safe and healthy.
Eye doctors, surgeons and the optical industry became angry,
feared 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, teaching Natural Eyesight Improvement
to the public and certifying teachers. To date; year 2014+, eye
doctors, businesses that prefer to sell; eyeglasses, contact lenses,
eye drops, drugs, cornea lasik, cataract... eye surgery continue to
hide Natural Eyesight Improvement, the Bates Method, to prevent the
public from learning how to obtain clear eyesight and cure, prevent
eye problems, disease naturally,

She then worked as Dr. Bates assistant in his Clinic in New York City,
U.S.A. for many years. They married in 1928. Her name changed to Emily
Bates is known for her kind, gentle, understanding way of treating,
teaching adults and children how to obtain clear eyesight and healthy
eyes naturally, and for her devotion to Dr. Bates work.
She continued teaching The
Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement after Dr. Bates passed
away in 1931 and preserved his books, Better Eyesight Magazine. The
book contains true stories of their patients, describes the natural
treatments that Dr. Bates and Emily applied without use of eyeglasses,
surgery, drugs to cure; Unclear Close and Distant Vision (Myopia,
Farsight, Presbyopia), Astigmatism, Crossed, Wandering Eyes
(Squint-Strabismus), Cataracts, Glaucoma, Cornea Ulcers, Scars,

eye-vision conditions were treated.
Dr. Bates, Emily’s patients became teachers, applied Natural Eyesight

directions, time limit, eyes moving, blinking...), the sunglass and
other original treatments, experiments and all pictures are removed

destroy Dr. Bates work, hide the truth.) Emily may have been reluctant
to continue publishing Dr. Bates original book and its true title
after Dr. Bates passed away in 1931 and Margaret Corbett, other Bates
Method teachers were taken to court in the 1940’s by dishonest eye
doctors trying to suppress the Bates Method so they can continue

1931 the dishonest eye surgeons... planned to take him to court, take

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.
He stated 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 and
recti', when tense alter the eyes shape, the eyes refraction
of light rays, pressure.., clarity of vision at close and far
distances causing; unclear vision, astigmatism, cataract,
glaucoma, strabismus and other eye-vision conditions. When the

Ophthalmologist Ferdinand Von Arlt
originally studied the theory that the eye accommodates by
lengthening, 'like a camera'.
Modern eye doctors state they have proved that the lens and
eye change shape during accommodation. The eye lengthens a
bit when the lens changes shape. So, Dr. Bates and Arlt,
Helmholtz are right. 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 and even back, body muscle tension,
incorrect posture can affect the eye muscles and clarity of

MacFadden with the help of Dr. Bates wrote a new book with
many changes, additions; The 1918, 1924-1925 book ‘eyesight

'STRENGTHENING THE EYES'
is a result of Bernarr MacFadden learning Ophthalmologist
William H. Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement, in

; A fitness, natural health, food, body building magazine. In
this magazine and other magazines, newspapers Dr. Bates and

booklets, 28 lessons and an eyechart. This and Dr. Bates
Medical Articles, work around 1886 started the Natural
Eyesight (Vision) Improvement revolution.
In later years
MacFadden turned the kit into a book.
Dr. Bates name was on most 1918-1925 red cover kits 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 Magazine, Perfect
Sight Without Glasses, Medical Articles, Clinic work. Bates
1919-1920 book, magazines contain many new practices. (Clearsight
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 book'.)
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.
Perfect convergence, divergence improve all eye-vision function.
Bernarr MacFadden is 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 need for glasses, surgery... The Bates
Method works if the patient will learn and apply it. Many
people prefer eyeglasses or surgery; a quick fix with no
study, practice. Glasses, contacts, surgery are addictive,
maintain and increase eye-vision problems, cause cataract,
detached retina... With a little practice the Bates
Method ‘natural eye-vision function’ becomes automatic and
conscious practice is not needed.

successfully taught Dr. Bates Method. From Dr. Bates in Better
Eyesight Magazine, 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
shows that voluntary or artificial attention, as is with
spontaneous attention, oscillates, needs alternate
contractions and relaxations. Forcing one fixation causes
fatigue, lowers the vision.., perfect perception. Constant
voluntary muscle contraction creates spasms, results in many

He has also
investigated the use of music by which some patients find an
easy way to obtain a short swing through the auditory

Trained by Dr. Bates.
Very successful in his medial practice curing his patient’s
eyesight with the Bates Method. A blind student I work with has
success with this doctor's book. From the book;
In many cases it is quite
practicable to teach a patient who is having trouble with eyesight
how to correct the abnormal function and regain good normal
vision. There are different techniques, or procedures, in the
method originated by Dr. Bates. They are all very simple, and they
are varied so that they are adaptable to every kind of condition,
and temperament and opportunity. In this book all of these
practices will be described so that it will be possible to learn
definitely from the text how to carry them out.

with and was trained as a Bates teacher by Dr. Bates. She cured famous
writer Aldous Huxley's eyesight, saved him from blindness. She
improved the eyesight of many people, including pilots and people of
various professions in the military, stars in Hollywood, Los Angeles,
1940’s, California; eye doctors and people in the optical-medical
profession tried to stop Margaret Corbett and her assistant 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 and others to court a few times. Aldous
Huxley and other cured Bates Method graduates were witnesses,
testified for Margaret Corbett. Huxley proved that she improved his
eyesight, he sees clear without glasses. Many people proved she cured
them of cataract, near blindness and other eye-vision conditions,
proved they had healthy retinas due to Bates’ sunlight practice and
obtained clear eyesight, freedom from eyeglasses.
She won the 2
cases brought against her and later improved the eyesight of more
people that were in the courtroom that day and worldwide.
Other teachers won similar
accused of violating the Medical Practice Act of CA for treating the
eyes without a license. Mrs. Corbett explained in court that she was
not practicing optometry or ophthalmology, is not acting as a doctor.
That she is only an instructor of eyesight training.
After she won the cases; the
optometrists and ophthalmologists fought back by proposing a bill in
the CA State Legislature to cause eyesight education to be illegal
without an optometry... or medical license.
The bill was defeated. New
York succeeded in passing bills. Emily A. Bates, in N.Y. was affected
by this abuse. The bills
were eventually discontinued.
Huxley wrote the book;
'The Art of Seeing'
in 1942 to describe the Bates Method and how his eyesight was cured.
See his pictures on the right > ;
top picture - strong, thick eyeglasses, unclear eyesight, near
blindness before Natural Eyesight Improvement.
picture - without eyeglasses, he has clear eyesight after his
eyes-sight was cured by the Bates Method.
Critics state that later in life, Huxley was giving a speech and could
not read part of a page without using a magnifyer glass. People must
realize that it is normal for the clarity of vision to fluctuate and
especially when under pressure, a bit nervous giving a speech while
knowing 'certain people' will be working against him, hoping his
vision won't be perfect. Aldous Huxley had a major eye problem, was
almost completely blind before treatment from Margaret Corbett. Age
16; attack of keratitis punctate, had opacities on the cornea blocking
his vision, hyperopia, astigmatism. He wore very strong glasses for
years and used a powerful magnifying glass to read. These things
further impaired his vision. The Bates Method helped correct this.
His eye injuries were not 100% cured but after the Bates Method he
could see well. Due to the
injuries he used a magnifier occasionally, mainly to see in dim light.
Read Aldous wife’s book for facts; his
eyesight and the Bates Method; This
Timeless Moment; A Personal View of Aldous Huxley
by Laura Archera Huxley. Margaret
Corbett published other books.
For many years, since eyeglasses were invented and sold to the public,
eye doctors and optical businesses that prefer to hide the truth about
Natural Eyesight Improvement and to prescribe/sell eyeglasses, eye
surgery and drugs have tried to stop true Bates Method 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, tension on and inside the eye, cornea,
lens, retina, optic nerve, eye muscle nerves, capillaries and all
parts of the eye, increase eye pressure resulting in; unclear
eyesight, astigmatism, crossed/wandering eyes, cataracts, detached
retina, broken retina blood vessels, 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 day
and night vision, blindness, pain, light streaks, halos,
impaired light tolerance and other eye-vision problems. Lifelong sales
of eye drops, other treatments, more destructive surgery and
eyeglasses after cornea surgery profit the doctors and drug companies.
(Some honest eye doctors
are teaching the Bates Method.) Natural Eyesight Improvement improves
the clarity of eyesight and health of the eyes without side effects.

Thomas Quackenbush is an Original and Modern Bates Method,
Natural Vision Improvement teacher.
He is the first person, the
pioneer (after Dr. Bates) that restored Dr. Bates Better
11 years, 132 issues into one book.
Tom’s book, the magazines brought Dr. Bates work, the entire Bates
Method, true Natural Vision Improvement to the modern public.
is the first modern teacher that has not hidden Dr. Bates Better
Eyesight Magazine, books. Many teachers before him took full credit
for Ophthalmologist Bates work and hid Dr. Bates magazines, books so
the public could not learn for free, have complete training.
This true source of the Bates Method was and still is hidden because;
it is simple, easy and people do not have to pay money to learn, apply
and teach it. It’s free in libraries in the U.S., Europe. Mr.
Quackenbush's books also enable people that are low income, cannot
travel to have access to the best, complete and honest priced Natural
Vision Improvement Training.
Tom is one of my 1st Natural Vision Improvement Teachers.
I obtained clearer than 20/20 eyesight at close and far
distances as a result of taking a natural vision course from him at
his school when he taught in San Francisco, California.
I studied his books,
the original Better Eyesight Magazines and learned all practices of
the TRUE Original and the Modern Bates Method. Resulted in seeing the
small bottom 10 eyechart line and smaller lines at 20 to 40 feet! My
ability to relax, state of mind, self-esteem, emotions, intelligent
and creative thinking improved. I quit a dangerous job at a hotel in
South San Francisco, CA, quit drinking too much beer and found an
honest doctor that cured a
neck injury/dizziness after insights about natural alternative
medicine, therapy from taking Thomas Quackenbush's class.

Foreword By Thomas R. Quackenbush 2006
Excellent Natural Vision training and in depth information about how
the mind, emotions, thoughts... influence eyesight. Describes how
eyeglasses injure the eyes, vision; how they are most always
prescribed too strong and incorrect leading to fast impairment of

eyeglass lenses. One example; Abnormal lighting in the exam room and
eye test machine ups the prescription; its too strong.

HEALING BACK PAIN - The Mind-Body Connection
John E. Sarno, M.D
Many books, natural pain... cures.
Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Dance, Physical Therapy
and other methods to correct the posture, movement, balance,
coordination, function of the body with the eyes and eyesight; brings
clear eyesight, improved hearing and other health benefits.
Incorrect posture-movement causes tension, pressure, pulling of the
vertebrae, muscles in the body, back and especially the neck,
shoulders and head.
This causes tension, pressure and pulling on the spine,
brainstem, nerves, blood, lymph vessels in the spine, body, neck,
and those that travel to the head, brain, ears, sinus.., eyes, retina,
eye muscles. This disrupts function of the eyes, eye muscles, retina,
lens, hearing, balance and even the brain and optic nerve. This
results in unclear eyesight, impaired eye health and impairs
coordinated, relaxed movement of the head, body with the eyes and a
relaxed mobile neck. Correct, relaxed eye movement (shifting,
convergence, divergence...) is restricted, stiff and unbalanced.
Correct posture, movement, relaxation, good diet returns the body,
mind/brain, eyes and eye muscles to normal health and function
resulting in clear eyesight. I prefer Physical Therapy, Movement, Tai
Chi and other natural movements, postures like the Alexander
Frederick Matthias Alexander. Dr. Bates likes these methods, doctors.

Be sure to obtain THEIR books. Not new ones created by different
teachers that alter or impersonate the method. A few originals are
free on GoogleBooks.
Public domain books are on the website e-books page and the GuestPage;
TEACHING HOW THE BODY, BRAIN and EYES CONNECT, WORK TOGETHER;
How the body, neck muscles, nerves, circulation affect, connect to the
head, brain, certain parts, functions of the brain, eyes,
ears-hearing, sinus and other systems.
Some teachers combine training of the Alexander Method... with other
movement... methods. Some teachers are very good but others
impersonate the original teachers, authors and teach incorrect. Choose
carefully. I have used two
spine, neck alignment methods ‘without touching, twisting... my neck,
spine’. They are safe alternatives to the risky, often dangerous
method of chiropractic. Also used various physical therapy/movement
methods, some yoga.
I prefer to stay with the original books by Frederick Matthias
Alexander and other safe methods. One popular eye-body teacher is
strange; he sells unnatural methods such as pinhole glasses without
listing the side effects. Much of his training seems to be ‘made up’,
missing parts, not teaching the true connection of the body, nerves,
muscles with the eyes and brain.
I prefer study of ophthalmology, nervous, circulatory, lymph,
energy systems, muscles, massage, myofascial release (to relax
contracted muscles, muscle knots, improve blood, lymph flow, and
improve the muscle stretch reflex), acupressure and EFT.
The spiritual, energy bodies
also affect the health of the physical body and mind. Healing from a
higher ^ level.
with other teachers, good and bad;
After years of study, application I disagree with some teacher's
I do not like most of a very popular high priced teacher’s eyesight
training. It’s unnatural.
Example; his blocking the eyes’ central field with a black
paper while using only the peripheral field to see with.
This is directly against
Ophthalmologist Bates #1 practice of central-fixation and normal eye
shifting ‘movement’. Central-fixation, 'central vision' with normal,
completely free eye shifting is essential for clear eyesight,
healthy eyes. It cures glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration,
myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and other eye-vision problems, keeps
the central vision perfectly clear, better than 20/20 and the
peripheral at its maximum normal function. Using the peripheral field
to see the object of mental-visual attention (placing the object you
want to see in the eyes peripheral field) causes glaucoma,
cataract, macular degeneration, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and
other eye-vision problems.
The unnatural teacher’s physical movement, yoga book
made me realize there are alternative
ways to heal a neck,
injury that was caused by a
he teaches some movements, muscle practices wrong. His specialty is
supposed to be movement, muscle relaxation, posture but he teaches
things that impair these functions. His ‘palming’ hands position is
set with the hands straight up, side by side. This causes neck,
head and shoulder tension (a main cause of unclear eyesight) and
prevents brain hemisphere integration and activation of a
major chi-charka energy center.
The hands fingers must be
crossed on the forehead for complete benefit.
Try it and feel the difference;
One of his movements helped.
I then searched for other movement, posture teachers.
It took many different physical therapists,
doctor's books, tools, methods and better movements to correct the
I don't like teachers that alter, corrupt Dr. Bates Method, make it
unnatural in order to ‘create their own method’ so it attracts
attention, can be mass marketed, sold for a very high price by the
hour lessons, expensive seminars, endless $300.00 to $5000.00+
multi-level training, teach things that are harmful, hold back
training and hide the true, easy Bates Method.
Be aware of this and avoid them.
Many videos on the internet
contain partial or incorrect training.
I now refuse to allow most doctors and even natural healers to touch
my head, neck, spine...
The chiropractors injured me on purpose. They did not like my
webpage that describes how chiropractic has become corrupt, the main
secret method they use to misalign the spine, back, hips, neck
and head in order to sell endless treatments. I
quit chiropractors after a few broke, dislocated my neck resulting in
vertigo, ringing ears.., hospital visits. It is dangerous even when in
the hands of a honest doctor.
A bad masseuse pressed hard on my lower spine vertebrae and caused
loss of feeling in my legs. A good masseuse and doctor corrected it
and permanently cured back pain. The DORN Method by Thomas Zudrell is
I was advised not to use the tool on my ’broken’ neck
but the movements and other treatments are great and aligned my body
naturally! I used the tool on some areas.
A few honest chiropractors taught me what the dishonest ones did to
injure me, then taught me how to undo the injuries, misalignments
without using the invasive bone, cartilage twisting forms of
Many teacher's prices for in person training and teacher certification
are extremely high. I wish their greedy leader and others would give
free training to the blind. Many blind, semi-blind people called him
and a famous lady teacher and other high priced teachers; asked about
this and they answered; “they do not help the blind or anyone for
free”. Just a seminar (but that's limited and mainly for
advertisement). Semi-blind people also asked them; “If a person is
going blind, is wearing strong -6, -8 and up glasses; should they stop
wearing the glasses?” The teachers said NO, to keep wearing the
glasses. This is very bad advice from these teachers, their leader and
his staff. Eyeglasses, especially strong prescriptions cause and
increase 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 problems.
The dishonest teachers also
told us they cannot say if the leader’s method is Ophthalmologist
Bates Method and said; “That question has to be asked to the leader in
person only, you must travel to his location, pay $”. But in his
books, school he uses Dr. Bates’ name. (deceptive)
teacher alters, corrupts the Bates Method.
He hides Dr. Bates true method, book and Better Eyesight Magazines.
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, then 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.
Many blind people are on disability, a limited income.
blind people the popular teacher and other dishonest teachers reject
can be helped. It's so easy to teach; just 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.
A Mormon in Utah is integrating the Bates Method with the Bible and
its natural health cures. His pure salt and water recipes greatly
helped heal my neck and other injuries. Glasses prevent normal
eye, brain function. When glasses are removed the eyes activate
Natural Eyesight Improvement automatically, 'on their own', the normal
eye-visual system function. Dishonest
teachers hide this fact.
They make the Bates Method seem long, complicated. Avoid these crooks
charging hundreds, thousands of dollars for classes, more for teacher
training. Note; if a teacher will not give the full training free
to help a blind, partially blind person; they are dishonest. Avoid
The popular high priced teacher in San Francisco, CA states he was
blind at birth, had cataracts, eye operations that caused lens injury
and other eye problems. He states he cured his eyesight naturally, can
now see clear to drive without glasses. His sight is not 20/20 clear
but he achieved a lot if he is telling the truth about his past eye
conditions and surgery results. I sometimes suspect he is hiding the
full truth. He states the Bates Method cured his sight. But he teaches
so much of it wrong. If it healed him; I think he is hiding the true,
entire Bates Method which he used for himself, is refusing to fully
reveal it to others. Or he only learned some of it. He invents his own
stuff but it’s not healthy and often not entirely effective. This
enables him to sell more and more classes, holding back training until
more money is paid and then he still hides complete training. Many bad
teachers do this. I wish he would give due credit to Dr. Bates by
telling the truth and preserving and providing Dr. Bates books, Better
Eyesight Magazines which are free-public domain and contain complete
Natural Eyesight Improvement training. Please teach the entire and
true, correct method. I wish
these teachers would stop altering, corrupting and hiding Dr. Bates

the mind, body. Many years wearing glasses often disrupts the
eyes movement and causes neck tension, advanced eye muscle tension...

Goodrich school teaches this. Also start here; Edu-Kinesthetics, Whole
don’t use pinhole glasses. The Goodrichs state that they are not
natural and provide insight on their function. If needed; I prefer a
different type pinhole glasses; one hole in the cardboard per eye so
the fovea is not blocked when the eyes move. Move the head with the
eyes. Use only if necessary. Not for driving... due to much of the
peripheral field is blocked. Mainly for reading, quick glance at a
object. (I am not familiar

Three teachers asked me to raise the price of my e-books and charge
money for the videos; $175.00. They continually try to prevent free
public access to the books, videos, Dr. Bates magazines. After I
refused to raise the price and then set all the e-books for free
download; the teachers have become abusive, lot of cruel messages in
emails, phone, online forums.
Some Natural Vision teachers are organized into groups and post their
members, prices on their website. Teachers must pay a yearly fee to be
part of the group and listed. Note they limit free books, training
unless you pay. I don't like some of the arrogant teachers that charge
high prices and endorse lasik, contact lenses, magic eyes, pinhole
glasses... They flip-flop on issues so they can please everyone

Teachers are creating laws to present to dishonest
politicians, doctors to force the public to pay thousands of dollars
to be certified as a teacher, by them. This will make it illegal to
teach the public the Bates Method unless you are certified.
For true Natural Eyesight Improvement; I prefer to stay solely with
Ophthalmologist Bates original training from his book 'Perfect Sight
Without Glasses', his 'Better Eyesight Magazine' and
(my favorite teacher)
for student and teacher training, certification
and a few other teachers that stay with the true, natural Bates
Method. Modern training is also beneficial if it is natural.
I am confident in Thomas Quackenbush’s way of training.
I can send people to him knowing they will be in a safe place. Tom

A lot of school teachers, doctors and the military applied the method
with success. I like teachers that describe the benefits of sunlight,
color treatment, left and right brain hemisphere activation and
integration, memory, imagination, relaxation, EFT, acupressure,
massage, movement and other practices. I am studying more of the
brain’s function with the eyes to discover which areas of the brain,
its actions, emotions and nerves, body muscles when tense can cause a
specific eye muscle to be tight resulting in strabismus. There’s other
causes of strabismus. Left, right hemisphere, certain brain areas’
balance, coordination, development is also a cause of crossed,
wandering eyes and less clear vision in one eye, a distance.

Warning; Choose a Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement Teacher,
Books, Forum-Group Carefully!
Investigate, Seek Truly Natural
Original & Modern Bates Method Practices
Natural Eyesight Improvement has been in existence before Dr. Bates
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, moon, sun, planets in the sky, flow of ocean
water, seeking other ships, landmarks, birds, fish migration, wind...
Hunters use it in ancient and modern times. It’s also used when
looking at close distances to create tools, shelter, inspect, sort
food, draw and write to preserve heritage, education... Natural
Eyesight Improvement is the normal function of the eyes and vision
and brain, body function with the eyes, vision, ‘the entire visual
system’. It has been in existence since the creation of life,
fish, animals, humans on this planet, the evolution-development of the
eye and its function with light and dark,
response to sunlight.
The eye needs sunlight.
Light, survival and movement created the eyes. I suspect Mother
Natural threw in beauty, happiness and love. Sunlight maintains the
eyes health and function. Trees, plants, microscopic life have a
visual instinct, function. They react to light, are drawn to it and
grow healthy due to sunlight.
Practice only the Bates
Method. It is the true natural eyesight practice. The Bates Method
teaches; relaxation of the mind, body, eye muscles, eyes, neck,
shoulders and correct posture, movement, ‘correct
relaxed, natural vision habits ‘ (imitating, inducing the normal
function of the eyes, visual system;
'centralizing', memory, imagination, the opposite swing, blinking...),
tests for and perfects accommodation, convergence, un-accommodation,
divergence, normal eye movement, body movement, left and right brain
hemisphere activation and integration, color treatment, full spectrum
sunlight (sunning), breathing and other natural activities. This
produces 20/20 and clearer eyesight at all distances, close and far,
day and night. The Bates method returns the eyes, vision, eye muscles,
brain, body 'entire visual system' to normal function, maintaining
clear eyesight automatically, on its own.
After some practice, you don’t
need to consciously practice.
The Bates Method does not consist of repetitive, forceful eye
exercises, eye stretches...
The Bates Method relaxes and aligns the left and right eyes and
eye muscles’ movement, perfects their function.
Switching, shifting on close and far objects (looking close and far)
is 'kind of an exercise', but; it is done in a relaxed way,
integrating Dr. Bates natural practices. It is very effective.
See Switching and Shifting in the books and on the website.
Many eyesight improvement teachers claim to teach the Bates Method but
they do not. They teach tension, effort inducing eye exercises and
other unnatural treatments that cause mental strain, eyestrain,
eye muscle tension, headaches, neck tension, unclear vision and other
Forceful eye exercises are not natural and do not produce perfect and
permanent clear eyesight.
Eye or eye muscle injury can occur. Avoid teachers that refuse to give
free help for advanced eye, vision conditions, blindness. A 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 or free. Clear eyesight, healthy eyes is the birthright of ALL
people. Dr. Bates always helped the blind, people needing eyesight
improvement. He charged a low price and often trained free in his New
York City Clinic, Offices.
I notice many teachers
books teach tracing on objects (with or without the nosefeather)
incorrectly; they have the person looking into space near but not on
the object. This is diffusion, the opposite of central-fixation. Their
pictures should show the nosefeather and ‘central field’ tracing line
- - - - -
directly ON the edge of the
object you are tracing on. (or if looking at a part; on the edge of
the part of the object.) Not off to the side into space.
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.
Even when you use the big fluffy feather with no point on the end; the
eyes’ central field still moves on the edge of the object.
‘Central-Fixation with Shifting’.
See the Nosefeather Chapter in the book and on the website;
Many Teachers Teach Things That are Unnatural, Wrong, Unsafe,
Not the True Original Bates Method;
Avoid teachers, websites, forums that teach, sell and/or refer to eye
doctors that sell these harmful, unnatural methods; Lasik and other
Cornea Eye Surgeries, use of Contact Lenses or Contact Lens Treatments
to try to force the cornea/eye to change shape (Ortho-keratology,

the harmful, unhealthy Plus Lens method. Also called

Chiropractic and other unnatural methods.
Try to avoid implanted eyeglass myopia, farsight, presbyopia,
astigmatism, bifocal... prescriptions in cataract surgery artificial
lens replacement inside the eyes; it traps you with an eyeglass
prescription that cannot be changed-removed without more surgery.
More surgery has risks. A prescription in the eye is also addictive,
increases vision impairment.
Read our entire Warnings, Directions PDF;
and in our book copyright.
Cornea laser surgery is similar; the
lasik and other cornea surgeries place a prescription in the cornea.
More cornea surgery to change it can result in cornea injury,
All these 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, impaired eye health and can result in
blindness. They disrupt the brains function with the eyes-vision. I do
not endorse, advise use of lasik, Artificial 3-D eye exercises, Plus
Lens method, Contact Lenses, any unnatural method.
I disagree with the
use of pinhole glasses and do not like teachers that sell them without
warning of the side effects, without teaching healthy alternatives.
Reason is posted on the website with video and PDF;
block many natural eye-vision functions, can impair the vision, eyes
health. The smaller the holes are in the glasses, the more they impair
the visual system’s function. The black areas constantly move
over-block the eyes fovea-macula; the exact central field, the main
area of the retina that produces clear eyesight.
I don't like teachers
that sell colored eyewear ‘color treatment glasses’.
This imbalances the sun's
natural healthy full light spectrum. It turns healthy sunlight into
partial unhealthy light that imbalances the visual system, brain and
body’s function, chemical, hormone production.
Sunglasses, colored, tinted and even plain glass, plastic block full
spectrum sunlight. It impairs the eye, cornea, iris-pupil, lens and
retina’s function and health.
True color therapy and colored light therapy does not involve wearing
I prefer the original natural colored light treatment (without
colored glasses) taught by Thomas Quackenbush and other natural
teachers and plain good old sunlight which contains all colors.
See the real method here;
and in the paperback or e-book
Do it Yourself - Natural Eyesight Improvement in the Sunlight and
Color, Colored Light Treatment chapters;
The website, books list all the unnatural methods, eyeglasses to
avoid. Choose a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist,
Ophthalmologist only, if an eye doctor is needed. AVOID LASER...
CORNEA SURGERY! No cornea surgery, no contact lenses, no plus lens
method... Don’t let them sway, sweet talk you. Some vision
improvement teachers receive money 'kickbacks' from Optometrists,
Ophthalmologists, Opticians, Chiropractors and other businesses by
referring students to them through links on their website or in
private chats, messages, in person. Avoid teachers that endorse
contacting their 'affiliate' Behavioral Optometrists or other eye
doctors, teachers that sell, teach the harmful practices listed here
as 'to avoid'. Some eye doctors are ok, they teach the true Bates
Method, but some are not
natural, they prefer to sell eyeglasses, lasik and other eye surgery,
contact lenses, the plus lens method, other unnatural practices. They
want you to develop cataract so they can sell that expensive surgery.
Know the side effects, risks of chiropractic. See
the Chiropractic Warning page;
I do not allow people I am training to use contact lenses. They cause
cornea, eye injury.
Contact lenses are never a perfect fit for the cornea because the eye,
cornea naturally change shape, often. This occurs more frequently as
the eyes, cornea return to normal healthy shape with practice of
Natural Eyesight Improvement. The contacts will not fit; they can
easily scrape, injure, infect and scar the cornea. Contact lens
cleaning solutions, eye drops get contaminated with bacteria,
parasites. People have gone blind, lost their entire eye. Some
teachers allow use of contact lenses, strong eyeglasses and other
destructive methods because they want endorsement from eye doctors to
help sell their training and books.
True Bates Method teachers, schools teach that only reduced
weaker and weaker eyeglass
lenses, usually 20/40 clarity (no contacts) are used and only
temporarily, only if needed
for driving, safety at work... as the vision is improving with
practice of the Bates Method. Example; a person with -3.00 eyeglasses
for myopia might try reducing to -2.50 or -2.00.
The eyechart will
show 20/40 clarity with glasses on. Avoid glasses as much as possible.
Keep practicing the Bates Method. Then continue to reduce until seeing
clear without glasses. A person with +3.00 eyeglasses for presbyopia,
farsight might reduce to +2.50 or +2.00 and continue to reduce. If the
eyeglasses have uneven lens strength for the left, right eyes; try to
get the strength even. See directions on the eyeglasses page;
eyeglasses have uneven prescription strength in the left and right
It’s best to change the lenses to equal strength; Don’t use the
stronger lens from the less clear vision eye’s eyeglass lens because
it will impair-lower the vision in the best-clearest vision eye. Use
the weakest eyeglass lens
from the best clearest vision
eye and place it in both left and right eyeglass lens’ frame.
Then; reduce (weaken) both the left and right lenses strength equally.
Ask your eye doctor for the number; maybe reduce 0.50 or 1.00 diopter.
+ or - depending on the prescription. Some people reduce more;
The clearest vision eye will see 20/40 clarity through its
reduced eyeglass lens. (20 feet, #40 eyechart line.) The less clear
vision eye will have the same strength eyeglass lens but it must catch
up (improve its vision) to see 20/40 through its lens, see equally
clear as the clearest vision eye. Note
that the clearest vision eye will also be improving;
so do some extra Bates Method practice with the less clear eye
(without glasses). The goal is to get the clarity of vision improved
and equal in the left and right eyes when not wearing glasses. When
glasses are worn; the left and right eyeglass lenses are equal
strength and the eyes see at an equal level through the reduced
the lenses are too weak or too strong; vision through the eyeglasses
will be too blurry and cause strain, effort to see, headache. Find a
balance where the glasses are weaker, not 20/20 clear but just right
to see comfortable with no strain.
Uneven vision and uneven eyeglass lenses cause imbalance,
tension in the visual system, brain, eyes, retinas, eye muscles and
slows vision improvement. Correcting this and removing bifocal,
multi-section, astigmatism, prism, UV blocking, tinting, coating...
from the eyeglass lenses enables easy, faster vision improvement,
helps to reverse addiction to glasses and is not as harmful to the
eye’s health as glasses with multiple and strong prescriptions. No
eyeglasses is the healthiest option.
Glasses, level of clarity with
and without glasses must be legal, safe for driving, work...
cannot get the left and right eyeglass lens strength equal; it’s still
important to reduce the strength of each lens.
Getting the lenses equal and reduced is the best option, but
some people have a large difference in the left, right eyes clarity so
equalizing the eyeglass lenses may
feel uncomfortable, at first, so they reduce only. An option is
to buy 2 pair of glasses; the
equal and reduced and
reduced only. Then; wean your way into the equal and reduced as
the vision improves.
When buying; reduce the equal and reduced strength glasses a
bit more to fit improvement in the vision. All glasses need more
reduction as the sight improves and the lenses become too strong.
Before glasses give 20/20; its time to reduce.
No bifocal! If you need to reduce for far and close vision; buy two
pair of glasses; one reduced for far. One reduced for close. Wear them
around your neck on a string. One higher to prevent scratching. Use
glasses as little as possible.
The P.D., centering and
height of the left and right eyeglass lenses, exact fit of the
frames, handles... must be placed in the prescription.
Here’s an optician that teaches about the P.D., height and
other eyeglass settings that some online opticians don’t tell you;
P.D., eyeglass lens, frames measurement;
Most people can do without glasses when the vision is clear at 20/70
to 20/50. Some at 20/100 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, optic nerve problem, glaucoma, potential for
these or 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. (Strong prescriptions will advance these conditions.)
Eyeglasses can interfere with healing of an eye injury.
Contact lenses also cause all of these problems.
who wore strong glasses for many years started to see flashing blue
lights. He told his eye doctor. The eye doctor then increased the
eyeglass prescription, prescribed the strongest glasses the man ever
wore. He then saw more blue lights, had a bout of temporary blindness.
Doctor told him to keep wearing the glasses. Then more blue lights,
then blindness. A blood vessel burst in his retina, glaucoma came back
and black cataract in both eyes.
In the past this man stopped wearing eyeglasses for a couple
years and used the Bates Method. He cured cataract in both eyes and
80% of his glaucoma and myopia. Then he had a lot of stress in his
life, lost his home and family. His vision blurred a bit from the
stress. Stress can lower the
vision. If glasses are avoided, relaxation obtained; the vision
returns to clear. Unfortunately he followed his eye doctor’s advice
and went back to glasses. This is when the trouble started, strong
glasses prescribed which lead to blindness. Eye surgery was performed
on the broken retina blood vessel. He is now staying away from glasses
forever and works to restore
his sight naturally. He refuses surgery for the cataracts because many
of his eye problems occurred years ago due to eye surgery so he’s
reluctant to trust doctors, hard to find a good one.
Some teachers, businesses that sell books, courses on Natural vision
Improvement sell vitamins, nutrients for the eyes. The health of the
liver, kidneys, gall bladder, spleen, digestion... affect vision, the
eyes health. There are healthy effective remedies that improve
function of the body organs, circulation... Choose carefully. Some
herbs, vitamins, minerals... can be toxic, impair body chemistry,
hormones, health and vision. Some teachers sell herbs, ingredients in
their eye vitamins, formulas that have side effects, impair the eyes
health and clarity of vision. They do not warn about this.
food, good nutrition has a positive effect on the clarity of vision,
health of the body and eyes. Most vitamins, nutrients... are
beneficial but they are best acquired from fresh food. If taken in
pill form; it must be created from food, not artificially from
chemicals... No additives. Read the Nutrition Chapter;
and avoid products containing bilberry leaf, eyebright,
sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, nitrate and other unhealthy ingredients,
certain herbs, preservatives, chemicals. Natural sulfur from
cabbage... is healthy. Chemical versions are not. Sulfite's, sulfate,
nitrites, MSG, hydrolyzed... protein, corn, soy, yeast.., aspirin,
aspirin type herbs, other 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. MSG is also called flavor enhancer. MSG and other
chemicals are labeled under many different names that the govt. has
legalized so the food industry, restaurants can hide ingredients.
Aspirin causes kidney, stomach damage, headache, 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. Avoid calcium in pill form.
It causes deposits in the body, kidneys... Drug store (and also
many phony natural) eye drops contain chemicals, toxins. Diet,
injuries, drugs, chemicals, sinus sprays (sinus sprays, chemicals
cause glaucoma, cataract, lower central and peripheral vision, color
perception), eye drops, some eye medicine, sinus infection or
congestion, mold allergy, lead, tooth cavities are other causes of
eye-vision problems. Bilberry
berries are healthy. When buying bilberry, ask for pure organic
bilberry fruit, the berries only, no leaf. (Bilberry leaf
CAN be toxic.) The berries are excellent. Pure bilberries improve eye
health and day, night vision. It’s an old World War Two pilots food
for clear night vision when flying. They ate it as bilberry jam. Best
without adding processed 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, its cells, cones-rods light receptors. Lutein and other
nutrients, carrots, spinach, lemon-orange peels, cornsilk, certain
types of chrysanthemum... are also beneficial.
Many Natural Vision Improvement websites have discussion forums,
groups, guestbooks, blogs where people can post subjects on the Bates
method-Natural Vision Improvement, ask questions and learn from others
that have improved their vision. When you connect with the right
people it is a very positive experience. Life evolves through the
exchange of ideas, sharing experience, cooperation and new creations.
Beware of some Natural Vision
Teachers that 'hang out' on groups, forums giving limited help; they
often are trying to lure people into taking private lessons for $50.00
to $200.00+ per hour, $300.00 - $5000.00 and up seminars. Sellers also
post for them. Most of the people on these forums are honest, very
helpful, but there are a few that go on the forums giving the
impression that they are strict Bates Method people but in reality
they are providing links to websites, eye doctors that sell unnatural
use of eyeglasses ‘plus lens method’.., lasik and other cornea
surgery, contact lenses, artificial 3-D, pinhole glasses and other
harmful products, treatments. Some people state incorrect,
harmful advice and/or hide true Bates Method training. They try to
make it seem difficult, complicated, state that only a highly
intelligent personality can understand it and be successful. This is
false. The Bates Method is easy, simple, a 'Do It Yourself' practice.
Children learn it, are cured and become effective teachers. Many
people obtain clear eyesight by only removing their glasses,
learning to relax and shift, know what central-fixation is. A
quick 10-30 minute lesson.

clicking on a forum chat, e-mail forum post or private message
was hacked many times on a forum chat and other ways by competing
teachers, authors from Iowa, Kiev-Ukraine, Russia, Italy and their
partners in other countries.
Some websites, software contain spyware, hacker viruses. 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 it in their books. It's hard to
remove, hides in the computer. You can use Norton tools; Power Eraser
(careful; hackers sneak in and corrupt it), other virus, spyware...
removal or find a good repair/detective guy to remove it. The
magazines on that website have many spelling mistakes and missing
issues. For years I have offered the owner help to fix the magazines
but he does not reply. Site has some kind of tracker, cookie that
locks into your computer. He may have just moved on, does not care to
work on the magazines but I find that a very strange thing to do. I
suspect there is a new 'secret owner or co-owner', they prefer the
magazines to stay incomplete, mis-spelled so they can sell high priced
paperback, PDF complete copies. This type of people hacked me 7 times
trying to shut down our free magazines, bookstores on Amazon... and
link to that and two other duplicate websites in the U.S., Kiev,
Russia... They use Dr. Bates name, picture... to sell unhealthy adult
content, drugs... They want to stop honest teachers from providing Dr.
Bates books, magazines for free and low price.
They sell for a very high price. There are bad people in the
world. The good must stand up and protect Dr. Bates work!

Warnings, Descriptions For
Artificial 3-D Fusion Autostereograms, Magic Eyes Pictures;
I do not teach, advise Artificial 3-D Fusion Eye Exercises, Also
labeled as; ‘Autostereograms, Magic Eyes Pictures, Merging Objects,
3-Cup Images...' It can cause
strabismus, crossed, wandering eyes, impair the eyes convergence, divergence,
accommodation, un-accommodation, the eye muscles and eyes movement,
cause eye muscle tension, double vision, astigmatism and blur in
normal eyes and more so if there is a slight or advanced strabismus or
other eye, medical problem, imbalance of the brain hemispheres or
other brain functions, neck injury-tension, mis-aligned skull bones,
other conditions. The Artificial 3-D can make a slight strabismus
condition worse. It causes strain, tension, stress and confusion in
the brain, eyes, retina and eye muscles.
is not the Bates Method.
Artificial 3-D Fusion exercises are not necessary to obtain
clear vision, normal eye movement. It was not taught by
The Bates Method alone can cure strabismus;
there are plenty of other activities, methods with
true fusion, 3-D to obtain clear, balanced vision, coordinated eye
movement in Dr. Bates book, magazine. Dr. Bates and modern Bates
Method Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement teachers teach different
activities, natural ones with true 3-D (Three-Dimensional vision,
depth, distance... perception) for correcting crossed, wandering eyes
‘strabismus’ and amblyopia, unclear vision.
picture on the right shows an artificial 3-D example; looking at the
pen placed in the central field, between and before the 2 red-blue
circles which are in the peripheral field, to create an illusion
of a 3rd circle between them. (Many teachers make this even more
abnormal by not using the pen; the eyes just stare into space. The pen
brings at least some normal effect.) Thinking red makes the circle
turn red. Thinking blue makes it turn blue. This strains, confuses the
brain, eyes, retina and eye muscles. See the Artificial 3-D warning
in our books. Dr. Bates
has extra ‘similar but different’ practices that correct strabismus
naturally. Search treatments for squint, crossed eyes, double
vision... in his book Perfect Sight Without Glasses and
Better Eyesight Magazine.
Look for the practice using a candle flame and the girl that
learned to turn the eyes in any direction and avoid tension.
Some Behavioral Optometrists, Ophthalmologists teach forms of
Artificial 3-D Fusion as activities, tests a special way for
each individual person's strabismus condition and obtain good 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, worked with a Bates teacher and
still need additional help. Follow your doctor's directions. Do not
copy it from a book, website created by an unqualified person. The
doctor's activity might help correct imperfect convergence,
divergence, fusion, strabismus when applied correct. It must be
practiced with the guidance of a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist,
Ophthalmologist. The eye doctor will teach the patient which
activities are to be done for specific conditions, distances that the
patient’s eye movement, convergence, divergence, fusion... needs
improvement. The doctor might have the patient practice with the 3-D
image card placed at only one, two distances or at a variety of close,
middle and far distances, fusing the two images into a 3rd by looking
at one or a variety of different close distances/objects before the
card and/or one or a variety of different far distances/objects beyond
the card. (one distance at a time.) Distance of the card might be
varied. Spacing between the two images might be at a variety of widths
or limited. Merging, fusing images that are further apart or closer
together being accomplished with advanced fusion training if needed. How many are
practiced, length of time each or only some of these activities,
routines are practiced is determined by the student’s
condition; convergence or divergence impairment, eye, eyes in, out,
up, down, angled.., degree of impairment and other eye-vision and
brain conditions. Other old and new treatments, pictures... might be
This is NOT a one size fits all, just carelessly thrown in a
book, webpage for every person’s treatment! Only a professional
can prescribe a safe, correct, precise routine for each individual. Practicing too much or too
little at a specific distance, at the wrong distance, on pictures
spaced a specific width that’s not needed, the wrong activity… can
impair convergence, divergence and cause other eye, vision problems,
astigmatism, cause and increase amblyopia.
teachers place the Artificial 3-D in their books, school to attract
attention, seem professional. They teach it wrong. They should warn
about the side effects. It effects how the brain works with the
eyes, retina, eye muscles. It is not to be toyed with. Do not
interfere with a child or adult’s natural brain, eye development,
function. It must be applied by a professional experienced in the
function of the eyes, the brain, brain hemispheres, visual cortex,
nerves, eye muscles and other functions. Accommodation,
un-accommodation of the eyes and lens work-occur with the eyes
convergence, divergence, fusion. All are affected, improved or
impaired when the activities, tests are done correct or incorrect.
Most 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, know exactly what part of the brain
needs work. 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, the artificial 3-D and
be sure it's done correct, and apply both methods; the Bates
Method and the professional Artificial 3-D. The artificial 3-D is a
temporary treatment. The Bates Method is a permanent practice,
an art, natural correct vision function.
The Artificial 3-D activities do produce a natural 3-D effect created
by the eyes, retina, brain, left and right brain hemispheres, visual
cortex. Seeing the correct fused image indicates the brain, eyes and
eye muscles are working together, eyes are balanced-aligned. But; I
call the activities Artificial
3-D because it is not the normal way a person uses the eyes-vision to
see an object clear. The Artificial 3-D has the person staring into
space between, and before or beyond 2 objects placed in the left and
right peripheral field, merging these two into a 3rd object which
shows an illusion of it being in the central field. In reality
it is 2 areas/objects of the peripheral field combined and still in
the peripheral. The person is using the peripheral vision to see with.
Diffusion occurs. This prevents Dr. Bates #1 natural practice of
central-fixation (true central vision). Shifting, natural eye movement
is also prevented, impaired. Artificial 3-D causes strain, tension,
confusion in the brain, eyes, dizziness and other side effects.
Impairing the eyes natural movement leads to unclear eyesight.
completely natural 3-D vision for healthy eyes, correct eye-brain
function, clear vision occurs when;
looking directly at the
object you want to see, directly at the distance the object is at, in
the true central field with
the mind, eyes 'mental-visual attention' on/at that object, distance.
And; the central field, (the retina’s fovea) ‘visual-mental attention’
are moving 'shifting' part to part upon the object.
True natural fusion
produces a completely natural 3-D vision created by the eyes, retina,
brain, left and right hemispheres, visual cortex. You can determine
true depth, distance of objects, time, speed to travel to, from one
object to another... You see the object’s texture, shape, all parts
large to tiny, light, shadows.
Try the Bates Method first; relaxation,
central-fixation (centralizing), shifting, switching (looking close
and far), bead string, pens in a row (natural
healthy fusion with true
3-D), phoria swings, memory and imagination, natural movement, long
swing, left and right brain hemisphere activation and integration,
color treatment and other natural methods are usually all that are
needed. See the Switching, Bead String and other chapters in the books
to test and correct the vision.
