By Emily C. Lierman, A. Bates.
123 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 and 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,

Doctor, patient experiences, natural treatments in Dr. Bates New York
City Clinic, offices. Emily
C. Lierman’s eyesight was cured by Ophthalmologist William H. Bates.
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
Emily Lierman, 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 and drugs to cure; Unclear Close
and Distant Vision (Myopia, Farisght, Presbyopia), Astigmatism,
Crossed, Wandering Eyes (Squint-Strabismus), Cataracts, Glaucoma,
Cornea Ulcers, Scars, Blindness and other eye problems. A variety of
patients, their eye-vision conditions were treated.
Dr. Bates, Emily’s patients became teachers, applied Natural Eyesight
Improvement to cure many people in the United States and other
countries. Children cured by Dr. Bates and Emily then cured their
friends, parents, school teachers with the Bates Method. Emily’s

1943 and later editions are not the complete version of Dr.
Bates original book. Looking into the sun with eyes open (the correct
way, specific directions, time limit, eyes moving, blinking, blindness

pictures are removed from the book. (Fear of
fines due to pressure from eye doctors, optical businesses trying to
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
selling eyeglasses, surgery, drugs. Right before Dr. Bates died in
1931 the dishonest eye surgeons... planned to take him to court, take
away his medical license and stop him from teaching his natural
method. Emily A. Bates'

Two of the Best Eye Doctors, Scientists That Studied the Human Eye,
Accommodation and Refraction Of Light Rays;
Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz,
Great German Scientist, inventor, philosopher, physics,
contributed to optics, electrodynamics, mathematics,
physiology, meteorology, measured the speed of the nerve
impulse, submitted a theory of color vision, the perception of
musical tones. From 'Psychology and Life’, 6th edition. Read
the chapter on vision, page 264. Great description of eye
movements, fixations, left and right brain hemisphere function
with the eyes...
studied the eyes’ lens and invented instruments to inspect the
inside of the eye, light rays, retina, lens... 'the
ophthalmoscope and ophthalmometer'.
He 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.
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
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 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.
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 vision.
THE EYES - A New Course in Scientific Eye Training in 28
Lessons By Bernarr
William H. Bates, M.D.
1918, 1924, 1925.
His first book;
+Strong Eyes - How weak Eyes Can Be Strengthened And
Possibly the first person or one of the first people to write
a book about Natural Eyesight Improvement. 1901 is a good
book, has wonderful poetry.., 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, additions; The 1918, 1924-1925 book editions of
'STRENGTHENING THE EYES'
is a result of Bernarr MacFadden learning Ophthalmologist
William H. Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement, in
person training from Dr. Bates. MacFadden published
; A fitness, natural health, food, body building magazine. In
this magazine and other magazines, newspapers Dr. Bates and
the Bates Method, their ‘Strengthening
the Eyes' Natural Eyesight Course consisting of training
booklets, 28 lessons and an eyechart. This and Dr. Bates
Medical Articles, work around 1886 started the Natural
Eyesight (Vision) Improvement revolution.
Dr. Bates name was on most 1918-1925 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.
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.
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 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.
+EL USO NATURAL DE LA VISION (THE NATURAL USE OF VISION) By
Dr. Ramon Ruiz Arnau, M.D.
- Berkley, CA Optometry Library;
Studied, 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."

This is from Dr. Bates in Better Eyesight Magazine, Jan., and
"Capt. 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

William B. MacCracken, M.D.
Trained by Dr. Bates.
Very successful in his medial practice curing his patient’s
eyesight with the Bates Method. A blind student I worked 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.

improved the eyesight of many people, including pilots and people of
various professions in the military, stars in Hollywood, Los Angeles,
In the 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 students 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

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 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,
partial blindness before Natural Eyesight Improvement.
Bottom 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 glasses. 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 removed all

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, cause increased pressure, tension on
and in the eye, cornea, lens, retina, optic nerve, eye muscle nerves,
capillaries and all parts of the eye 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 eyesight,
blindness and other eye-vision problems after the surgery.
Impaired light tolerance, halos, light streaks, impaired day and night
vision, lifelong sales of eye drops, other treatments and eyeglasses
after lasik surgery profit the doctors and drug companies. (Some
modern, honest eye doctors are teaching the Bates Method.)
Natural Eyesight Improvement improves the clarity of eyesight and
health of the eyes without side effects.

to control the brain, thoughts, emotions and release, increase your

Many books, natural pain...

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, head and
This causes tension, pressure and pulling on the spine,
brainstem, nerves, blood, lymph vessels in the spine, body, neck that
travel to the head, brain, ears, sinus.., eyes, retina, eye muscles.
This disrupts function of the eyes, hearing, balance, eye muscles,
retina, lens 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 also 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

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. I’m placing the public domain books on the
e-books page. Some are on the GuestPage. Connect here;
BOOKS TEACHING HOW THE BODY, BRAIN and EYES CONNECT, WORK TOGETHER;
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 and acupressure, EFT.
The spiritual, energy bodies also affect the health of the
physical body and mind.
My experience 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 covering the eyes central

Ophthalmologist Bates #1 practice of central-fixation and normal eye
shifting movement. 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 vision perfectly clear, better than 20/20 vision and
the peripheral at its maximum normal function. Using the peripheral

teacher’s physical movement, yoga books made me realize there are
ways to heal a neck,
injury that was caused by a
One of his movements helped.
I then searched for more movement, posture teachers.
It took many other physical therapists,
better movements, different doctor's books, tools, practices to
correct the neck, spine.
The ‘movement-yoga teacher
teaches some movements, muscle practices wrong. It’s supposed to be
his specialty. His palming practice hands position is set in a way
that causes neck, head and shoulder tension. A main cause of
unclear eyesight. The hands should be crossed on the forehead.
Try it and feel the difference;
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, sell it for a 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, hide the true easy Bates
Method. Beware, avoid them.
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.

loss of feeling in my legs. A good masseuse and doctor corrected it

I was advised not to use the tool on my ’broken’ neck
but the movements and other treatments are great and aligned my body

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,
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”.
But in his books, school he
uses Dr. Bates’ name. (deceptive) This 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 his achievement is amazing considering his past eye conditions. He
states the Bates Method cured his sight. But he teaches so much of it
wrong. 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 teachers do this. I wish he would
give more 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 Method in order
to make it 'their own method' so they can charge a high price.
all teachers that use these underhanded practices; PLEASE change
your heart, stop destroying Dr. Bates great method. Teach it correct,
for an honest price and set up free help for the blind and low vision
people. At least give 1 day a week and 30 min. to 1 hour a day in
person or Skype, Phone. Give the gift of sight that heaven gave you to

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
take peoples money. Dr. Bates method is true and free.
Another reason these teachers corrupt Dr. Bates method is because
dishonest eye doctors like this, will endorse it.
If a teacher does not provide Ophthalmologist Bates Better Eyesight
Magazines, books, Medical Articles and his wife Emily Lierman's book

that he, she has a license to continue these practices that harm the
public's health, sight.
Even some teachers that are certified to teach by famous, excellent
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.

response to sunlight.
The eye needs sunlight.
Light and survival created the eye. I suspect Mother Natural threw in
beauty, happiness, love. Sunlight maintains the
eyes health and function. Trees, plants, microscopic life have a
visual instinct, function. They react to light, are drawn to 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. Correct posture,
correct relaxed, natural vision habits (imitating, inducing the
normal function of the eyes, visual system; shifting, central-fixation
'centralizing', memory, imagination, the opposite swing...), 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 that produce 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, aligns and perfects eye muscle, eye
function and movement.
shifting on close and far objects (looking close and far) is 'kind of
an exercise' and is done in a relaxed way, integrating Dr.
Bates natural practices. That practice is very effective.
See Switching and Shifting in the book, 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 injury can occur. Avoid these teachers. 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.)
notice many teachers' books teach tracing on objects with the
nosefeather 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 nosefeather, 'central
field’ tracing line - - - - -
directly ON the edge of the
object or edge of the part of the object you are tracing on. 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. See the
Nosefeather Chapter in the book and on the website;

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 blindness.
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

cornea surgery, no contact lenses, no plus lens method... Don’t
let them sway, sweet talk you. Some vision improvement teachers

Opticians, Chiropractors and other businesses by referring students to
them through links on their website or in private chats, messages, in

Behavioral Optometrists or other eye doctors, teachers that sell,
teach the harmful practices listed 'to avoid' in this book. 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;

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 application of Natural Eyesight Improvement. The contacts
will not fit; they can easily scrape, injure, infect and scar the
cornea. Contact lens cleaning solutions... 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, books.
Bates Method teachers, schools teach that only reduced
weaker and weaker eyeglass lenses, usually 20/40 clarity (no
contacts) are used and only temporarily
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.
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;
If the eyeglasses have uneven prescription strength in the left and
right eyeglass lenses;
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 eyeglass
If 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.
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
If you 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’ lens
strength and find that equalizing feels uncomfortable, at first,
so they reduce only. A option
is to buy two pair of glasses; the
equal and reduced and the
reduced only. Then; try to
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 a further reduction as
the eyesight 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
The P.D., centering and height of the eyeglass lenses,

P.D. ‘eyeglass lens, frames measurement techniques’;
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. The 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 Eyesight
Improvement sell vitamins, nutrients for the eyes. The health of the
liver, kidneys, gall bladder, spleen, digestion... affect vision, the
eyes health. There are effective healthy remedies. Choose carefully.
Some herbs, vitamins, minerals... can be poisonous, impair body
chemistry, hormones and health. Some teachers sell herbs, ingredients
in their eye vitamins, formulas that have side effects, can be toxic,
impair the eyes health and clarity of vision. They do not warn about
Healthy 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
and avoid products containing bilberry leaf, eyebright,
sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, nitrate and other unhealthy herbs,
preservatives, ingredients, 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, peripheral vision,
color perception), eye drops, some eye medicine, sinus infection or
congestion, mold allergy, tooth cavities are other causes of
berries are healthy.
When buying bilberry, ask for pure organic bilberry fruit, the
berries only, no leaf. (I never tried bilberry leaf.
I read that it can be toxic.) The berries are excellent. Pure
bilberries improve eye health and day, night vision. It’s 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, 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.

muscles and eyes movement and cause crossed, wandering eyes, double
vision, astigmatism, 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
exercises can make a slight strabismus condition worse. It causes
strain, tension, stress and confusion in the brain, eyes, retina and
eye muscles. It is not the Bates

The Bates Method alone can cure strabismus;
there are plenty of other activities, methods with
fusion, 3-D practices
to gain clear, balanced vision, coordinated eye
movement in Dr. Bates book, magazine. Dr. Bates and modern Bates
Natural Eyesight Improvement teachers teach different
activities, natural ones with true 3-D (3-Dimensional, depth,
distance... perception) vision for correcting
crossed, wandering eyes ‘strabismus’
and amblyopia, unclear vision.
The picture on the right shows an artificial 3-D example;
looking at the pen placed between and before the 2 red, blue circles
which are in the peripheral field, to create an illusion of a 3rd
circle between them. (Most books make this more difficult by not using
the pen. The eyes just stare into space. I added the pen to help
prevent strain.) 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 Fusion warning at;
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
Some Behavioral Optometrists, Ophthalmologists teach forms of these
Artificial 3-D Fusion exercises, 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 exercise 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
exercises, 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, length of time
each or only some of these activities, routines are practiced is
determined by the student’s condition; divergence or convergence
impairment, eye, eyes in, out, up, down, angled.., degree of
impairment and other eye-vision and brain conditions. Other treatment,
pictures... might be added.
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 divergence, convergence 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. It must be applied by
a professional experienced in the function of the eyes, the brain,
brain hemispheres, visual cortex, nerves, muscles and other functions.
You do not want to interfere with a child or adult’s natural brain,
eye development, function. Accommodation,
un-accommodation of the eyes and lens work-occur with the eyes
convergence, divergence, fusion. All are affected, improved or
impaired when the exercises, 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.
Artificial 3-D exercises 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 exercises 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 is
an illusion of being in the central field. In reality it is 2
areas/objects of the peripheral field combined and still in the
peripheral. So; 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, can cause dizziness and other side
effects. Impairing the eyes natural movement leads to unclear
True completely natural 3-D vision for healthy eyes, correct
eye-brain function, clear vision occurs when;
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, 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.
