      William H. Bates
Emily C. Lierman Bates                                       

  BY OPHTHALMOLOGIST WILLIAM H. BATES, M.D.  1919  Advertised in Better Eyesight Magazine, Sept., 1919. Possibly earlier in other advertisements. Dr. Bates published with Bernarr MacFadden, a Natural Health teacher in 1918. MacFadden's 1st book; 1901. Dr. Bates wrote Medical Articles, began his experiments, started to cure patient's eyesight naturally around 1886. He worked in hospitals, colleges treating patients without eyeglasses, surgery, drugs, trained doctors in Ophthalmology and Natural Eyesight treatment. This resulted in a head surgeon (Dr. Roosa, New York Post Graduate Hospital, Medical School) expelling Dr. Bates. But Dr. Bates and the Bates Method survived. Dr. Bates was welcome in many hospitals, colleges as he continued to prove his method works.
    This is Dr. Bates original book. It contains the complete unedited edition.  Free PDF download on this website and in paperback.

+PERFECT SIGHT WITHOUT GLASSES  BY OPHTHALMOLOGIST WILLIAM H. BATES   1920   This 1920 edition is the same book as the 1919-1920 edition 'The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment Without Glasses'. Later editions have some pictures removed, new added, bit of text is changed in the fine print section.., and the printers are different. Editions after 1940 have different titles, are not the complete version of Dr. Bates original antique book. Many of his treatments, experiments and all pictures are removed. 1940 final print of the true book has an Appreciation by Dr. Bates'
Church Reverend, Dr. Rev. Daniel Poling, Fundamentals, eyechart and other things added by Emily A. Bates. Contains a certificate, letter stating the Book is preserved in the Crypt of Civilization for future generations.  The 1919 to 1940 editions are Dr. Bates original book, contains the complete unedited edition. Free PDF download on this website and in paperback.

1926   Doctor, patient experiences, natural treatments in Dr. Bates New York City Clinic, offices. Free on this website.

1943  1943 is not the complete version of Dr. Bates original book. Looking into the sun, the sunglass (which can cure blindness...) and other original treatments, experiments and all pictures are removed from the book. (pressure by eye doctors, optical businesses trying to hide Dr. Bate work, truth.) Emily A. Bates' list of the basic practices 'Fundamental Principles of Treatment' and a full-size Big C Eyechart are preserved are at the end of the book. My copy says; copyright; 1940, 1943 by Emily A. Bates. Page 53 has a picture of the human eye.  (Clearsight Publishing Co. has all of Emily's treatments included 'legally, public domain' from Dr. Bates Better Eyesight Magazines in our reproduction of Dr. Bates original 1919, 1920 to 1940 editions combined.)

INCLUDING  'STORIES  FROM THE CLINIC'  BY EMILY C. LIERMAN/A. BATES   11 Years, 1919 to 1930, 132 Issues, 2400+ pages. Better Eyesight Magazine proves and describes how Dr. Bates and Emily Bates applied Natural Eyesight Improvement, The Bates Method to cure patients of unclear vision, 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.
     Eye doctors, surgeons and the optical industry became angry, fearing they would lose a lot of money as people were being cured naturally and did not need to purchase eyeglasses, surgery and drugs. The eye doctors, opticians tried to stop Dr. Bates from curing his patient's eyes-vision naturally and teaching Natural Eyesight Improvement to the public. To date; year 2013+, eye doctors, businesses that prefer to sell eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye drops, eye surgery and drugs 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.  This page contains Dr. Bates life history;

                                 Listed Below are Other Eye Doctors, Scientists That Studied the Human Eye, Lens, Accommodation and Refraction Of Light Rays;

                              Ophthalmologist Ferdinand Von Arlt - Originally studied the theory that the eye accommodates by lengthening, 'like a camera'.            

Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz, Great German Scientist, inventor, philosopher, contributed to optics, electrodynamics, mathematics, physiology, meteorology... He studied the eyes lens and invented instruments to inspect the inside of the eye, light rays, retina, lens... 'the 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, recti' when tense alter the eyes shape, the eyes refraction of light rays, clarity of vision at close and far distances causing; unclear vision, astigmatism, cataract, glaucoma, strabismus and other eye-vision conditions. When the mind, body and eye muscles relax, these conditions are reversed, cured.  Ophthalmologist Ferdinand Von Arlt originally studied the theory that the eye accommodates by lengthening, 'like a camera'.  Modern eye doctors state they have proved that the lens and eye change shape during accommodation. The eye lengthens a bit.  Tension in any eye muscle; the outer oblique, recti and inner ciliary-lens, iris-pupil muscles and even the tear gland and eyelid-blinking muscles can affect eachother's function, the eyes function and the clarity of vision. Neck, shoulder muscle tension, incorrect posture can affect the eye muscles and clarity of vision.   

+STRENGTHENING THE EYES - A New Course in Scientific Eye Training in 28 Lessons  BY BERNARR A. MACFADDEN.   1918, 1924, 1925. His first book;
+Strong Eyes - How weak Eyes Can Be Strengthened And Spectacles Discarded was published in 1901. Possibly the first person or one of the first people to write a book about Natural Eyesight Improvement. Good book but needed some improvement. Contains a few practices I do not recommend. In later years, MacFadden with the help of Dr. Bates wrote a new book with many changes, improvements; The 1918, 1924-1925 book editions of 'STRENGTHENING THE EYES' is a result of Bernarr MacFadden studying Ophthalmologist William H. Bates practice of Natural Eyesight Improvement. They advertised natural eyesight training, the Bates Method together in newspapers, magazines. MacFadden published Physical Culture ; A fitness, natural health, food, body building magazine. In this magazine and other newspapers... Ophthalmologist Bates and MacFadden advertised their 'Strengthening the Eyes' Training Course and book. This and Dr. Bates Medical Articles around 1886 started the Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement revolution. Bernarr probably received much in person training from Dr. Bates when they spent this time together. Dr. Bates name was on the 1918-1925 book as author with MacFadden. Later book editions were authored only by MacFadden. Did Dr. Bates want to change, improve some of the practices in the book? Or maybe he preferred to place all his attention on his projects; Better Eyesight Magazines, Medical articles, Clinic work. (Clearsight Publishing Co., author of this website has added the Original and Modern Bates Method training to MacFadden's book; changed, corrected some practices, treatments and added new practices while maintaining the original text, pictures, practices 'entire 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 the need for eyeglasses, surgery, lasik.., drugs. The Bates Method works if the patient will take the time to learn and apply it. A large portion of the population seem to prefer eyeglasses or surgery; a quick fix with no studying, practice. Glasses, contacts, surgery are addictive, maintain and increase eye-vision problems, cataract, detached retina...  Done correct, The Bates Method becomes automatic; practice is not needed. 
+EL USO NATURAL DE LA VISION (THE NATURAL USE OF VISION)  By R. RUIZ ARNAU, M.D.  1924 Spanish - 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."  Here's another Spanish book on Scribd; Different author listed.  I bought it but have not read it entirely as I cannot read entire Spanish.

+BETTER SIGHT WITHOUT GLASSES OR CONTACT LENSES  BY HARRY BENJAMIN   1929   Cured many people of defective sight. Very good book.

- A Complete Treatise Upon the Newer Methods of Treating all Conditions of Imperfect Sight by Natural Means, and Obviating the Necessity for Glasses, Drugs, or Operations  1934   BY CECIL S. PRICE   Studied, trained by Ophthalmologist Bates. Captain of the  Australian Army Medical Corps, Principal of the School of Eyesight Training (London). This is from Dr. Bates in Better Eyesight, Jan., and Mar., 1925;  "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 he finds Captain Price thoroughly capable of curing imperfect sight by his methods."

 BY OPTOMETRIST DR. HAROLD M. PEPPARD  1936  Worked with and trained in The Bates Method by Ophthalmologist Bates. Continued Dr. Bates work in New York City with Dr. Bates' wife Emily A. Bates after Dr. Bates death in 1931.  Book has step by step Bates Method directions for various eye problems and the affect health, stress, diet, neck, shoulder tension, headaches... have on the eyes, vision.  After Dr. Bates death, the eye doctors that prefer sell eyeglasses, eye surgery and drugs, to hide the Bates Method, Dr. Bates work, discoveries tried to destroy, hide Dr. Bates books, Better Eyesight Magazines. Emily Lierman, A. Bates preserved Dr. Bates work. Emily, Dr. Peppard and other honest doctors protected Emily during this time and preserved Dr. Bates Original unedited book 'Perfect Sight Without Glasses', His Medical Articles and Better Eyesight Magazines. See picture, Dr. Monroe J. Hirsch Preserves Dr. Bates Magazines. >

+THE ART OF SEEING   BY  ALDOUS HUXLEY   1942   Trained by Margaret Corbett. See his experience below; how his Bates teacher Margaret Corbett cured him of blindness. The easy directions, practices in this book corrected my eyesight, removed myopia in High School, age 17. Now age 56, still see clear.

+EYES - THEIR USE AND ABUSE - How to Improve Defective Sight   1948   BY ETHEL BESWICK  Worked with Cecil S. Price and other teaches, studied Dr. Bates work.

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

Natural Eyesight Improvement improves the clarity of eyesight and health of the eyes without side effects.

1955   Very good Natural Vision Improvement teacher. May have worked with
Margaret Corbett and other Bates teachers.

ALEXANDER METHOD, 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 brings clear vision, 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, causes tension, pressure, 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 vision and impaired eye health and coordinated, relaxed movement of the head, body with the eyes, relaxed mobile neck and correct, relaxed eye movement (shifting, convergence, divergence...) is also restricted, stiff, unbalanced. Correct posture, movement, relaxation, good diet returns the body, mind/brain, eyes and eye muscles to normal health and function  resulting in clear vision. I prefer Physical Therapy, Movement, Tai Chi and other natural movements, postures like the Alexander Method.  Frederick Matthias Alexander inveneted the Alexander method. Find his 4.... books and study them. Also learn; The Feldenkrais Method by Moshé Feldenkrais. Dr Bates likes these methods.

+EYEBODY - THE ART OF INTEGRATING EYE, BRAIN AND BODY AND LETTING GO OF GLASSES FOREVER   2004   BY PETER GRUNWALD  Some of the training as for the Alexander Method apply to this book! How the body, brain, eyes work together. Tension, pulling on the spine, spinal cord, brain stem affects eye muscles, eyesight. I have not studied Mr. Grunwalds method in depth so cannot recommend all this treatments. I don't like his pinhole glasses ads posted without giving the side effects. I prefer to stay with the original books by Frederick Matthias Alexander, Alexander method. I also have used some of Peters information with benefit.  

 1988 to 2014  BY MEIR SCHNEIDER, Ph. D, L.M.T.   Sells other books, kits for eyesight, movement, health improvement.
The School for Self Healing  His Movement, Yoga books, (along with other doctor's books, movement, physical therapy... practices) helped me heal after a neck, spine injury caused by a dishonest chiropractor. 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 method they use to misalign the spine, back, hips, neck, head in order to sell endless treatments. Meir's books made me realize there are alternatives to chiropractic. The Dorn Method also helped.   I like some of Meir's movements, postures but not much of his eyesight training (I disagree with some other of his eyesight practices. Example; covering the eyes central field with a black paper. This is directly against Dr. Bates teaching of central-fixation. Central-fixation, 'central vision' with normal, completely free eye shifting is necessary for clear vision, healthy eyes and it cures glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, and other eye-vision problems and keeps the central perfectly clear, better than 20/20 vision and the peripheral at its maximum normal function. Using the peripheral field to see the object of visual attention with causes glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and other eye-vision problems.)

       The wish-request below goes out to all teachers, I'm not ranting solely on Meir's practice. Meir; your popular, have power. If you read this, please consider it and be a leader;

Meir and many other teacher's prices for in person training and teacher certification are too high. I wish Meir and others would give free training to the blind. I called him, asked about this and they said they do not help the blind or anyone for free.
Just an introductory lecture, (but that's limited and mainly for advertisement). I, another caller and many blind or semi-blind people also asked Meir if a person that's going blind, wearing strong -6, -8 glasses should stop wearing the glasses? They said NO, to keep wearing the glasses. This is very bad advice from Meir and his staff. Eyeglasses, especially strong prescriptions cause detached retina, other retina problems, macula degeneration, cataract, glaucoma, myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and most all eye-vision problems. Wearing the glasses can lead to retina detachment, blindness. Stopping the use of eyeglasses will help the retina heal and reverse blindness, other eye problems. They also told us they cannot say if Meir's method is Ophthalmologist Bates' Method. Said; 'that question has to be asked to Meir in person only'. (deceptive)  A lot of the blind people Meir and staff reject contact me for help. It's so easy to teach them; tell them to stop wearing the eyeglasses and give them the basic ten steps in our free e-books and Dr. Bates Book, Better Eyesight Magazines. Many have regained their vision with these simple practices and some, including senior citizens on pensions are now teaching, curing others for free. Glasses prevent normal eye, brain function. When glasses are removed, the eyes activate Natural Eyesight Improvement automatically, 'on their own', the normal visual system function. Dishonest teachers hide this fact.
Meir 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, level is amazing considering his past eye conditions. He states The Bates Method cured his sight. I wish he would give more credit to Dr. Bates by preserving and providing Dr. Bates Books, Better Eyesight Magazines which are free-public domain and contain entire Natural Eyesight Improvement training. Please teach the entire and true, correct method. I wish Meir and other teachers would stop altering, corrupting Dr. Bates Method in order to make it 'their own method' so they can charge a high price. To all teachers that use these underhanded practices; PLEASE change your heart, stop corrupting Dr. Bates great method. Teach it correct, for a honest price and set up free help for the the blind and low vision people. At least give 1 day a week, and 30 min to 1 hour a day in person or Skype, Phone. Give the gift Heaven gave you to others.
All Dr. Bates books, magazines are free here on our website. Give them free to the public when you train people. Don't lie to us, saying your method is superior to Dr. Bates. That's just an excuse to charge high prices. Dr. Bates method is true and free.
    I prefer Thomas Quackenbush for student and teacher certification training. Tom provides all Dr. Bates magazines, a book, complete original and modern training for a honest price.  

 +'RECLAIM YOUR EYESIGHT NATURALLY'-6 AUDIO CD'S WITH GUIDE BOOK AND 'RELAX YOUR WAY TO CLEARER SIGHT' - 2 CD'S   2006   BY GREG MARSH - A complete home study course. Variety of products. I took it, like it! Greg Marsh is a Certified Natural Vision Improvement Teacher trained by Thomas Quackenbush. He is very generous with his training, gives students a honest price. Karate experience. EFT training for clear eyesight... Peeked my interest in this subject. It works. Helped me survive though a neck injury, almost stroke.

See list of the best teachers below, what to avoid, what to look for.

             Best Teachers, Websites that Teach the true Bates Method and Provide Free or Honest Priced, High Quality Natural Eyesight Improvement Books are;   By Ophthalmologist William H. Bates, Emily Lierman, Bates, Clark Night, (Mary I. Oliver). This website. - Dr. Bates Better Eyesight Magazine website. Contains entire 132 issues-11 years, 3x spell check, linked Index and Bookmarks Navigation for every year, month. Translator, speaker reads aloud, videos, links to other books. - Thomas Quackenbush. Netherlands. My teacher. Easy, professional complete course!  He can refer people to teachers he has trained in the USA and other countries. Best books! Great information, see a real Natural Eyesight Improvement student class in action! Health info, natural dentists.., links to the FDA articles on lasik cornea surgery warnings, dangers. - Free audios, videos, great! Contains everything. Learned from her books and website. Also has treatments for strabismus, adults and children's vision. Books for parents to help baby's and children. Years of teaching. One of the first original/modern teachers after Corbett, Hackett, Peppard, Arnau... Trained, Certified Thomas Quackenbush.  I don't use the Artificial 3-D Fusion, Autostereograms, Magic Eyes pictures. I prefer Dr. Bates Method of looking close and far. Janet used the artificial 3-D for years so I don't want to judge. Done a certain way by direction of an Eye Doctor it might correct Strabismus but it can cause it if done wrong. Read my and other's experience with it on this website.
 - Greg Marsh. My Teacher. Lots of free training, audios, videos, radio talks, EFT. Great! I like the home student course he sold me and the free one!
I don't use the color therapy goggles shown in Greg's store due to tinted and even plain glass, plastic blocking full spectrum sunlight. I prefer
the original, different kind of colored light treatment taught by Thomas Quackenbush. I think Greg teaches both methods. I am not sure how Greg applies the colored goggles practice so I can't really comment on it. I prefer pinhole glasses with bigger holes. Reason is posted on this website. Pinhole glasses are a temporary tool that are healthier than eyeglasses but they do block many natural eye-vision functions. Greg sells all types. I might take teacher certification training from him. Definitely Thomas Quackenbush. 2 different teachers, both with their individual extra practices. - Lot of free training... Bought this course in 1995 and the newest in 2012. Like it!  Avoid the Plus Lens, Anti-Corrective Method and Artificial 3-D Fusion exercise 'Autostereograms, Magic Eyes pictures' and some of the herbs...  Other nutrition advice is good. I learned a lot from them. They connect to some natural based eye doctors. - Like it, some free stuff, lists in person classes with certified teachers. I don't like some of the arrogant teachers that charge high prices and endorse lasik. 
A few of them teach things wrong.

There are more teachers but I do not endorse if I have not taken a in person course or studied their books. Some have been left out of the list due to them going against their original training, selling unnatural methods, over priced training. See the list of books on this page for all of the best teachers. I'm sure there are many more than are posted on this website. Original and modern teachers, books are listed in the bookstores; Click Here  Also view my book, vitamin and product reviews on; Click Here

The video on the top of this page will be changed in 2014-2015 to include more teachers, books. In process of finding more antique covers and obtaining permission to place modern teachers pictures in the video.

For the books I publish, sell on this website; About 3% of the methods in some doctors, teacher's antique books have modern practices added to update the original methods. New practices, clarifications are in blue. I never remove the antique pages, pictures, training. Modern practices and pictures are added while maintaining the original work.
          Some of the books we do not sell, ones that are owned by other teachers, authors have a few practices that are incorrect, outdated. The practices to avoid are listed below;  

                                                     Warning; Choose a Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement Teacher, Books, Forum-Group Carefully!

Natural Eyesight Improvement has been in existence before Dr. Bates discovered it.
Eye doctors and the public have used it in the 1800's and earlier. Sailors have used it for hundreds of years to navigate the sea by looking at the stars in the sky, flow of ocean water, landmarks, birds, fish migration, wind... and lighthouses. Natural Eyesight Improvement is the normal function of the eyes 'visual system' and has been in existence since the beginning of fish, humans, animals on this planet, the evolution/development of the eye. Sunlight is the main cause of the development of the eye and it maintains the eyes health, function. Even trees, plants have a visual instinct. They react, are drawn to, grow healthy due to sunlight. 

Practice only the Bates Method. It is the true natural eyesight method. The Bates Method teaches; relaxation of the mind, body, eye muscles, eyes, neck, shoulders, correct posture, correct relaxed, natural vision habits (the normal function of the eyes, visual system; shifting, central-fixation 'centralizing', memory, imagination...), tests/improvement of accommodation, convergence, un-accommodation, divergence, movement, left and right brain hemisphere activation and integration, color treatment, full spectrum sunlight (sunning) and other natural activities that produce 20/20 and clearer eyesight at all distances, close and far, day and night. The Bates method returns the eyes, eye muscles, brain, body 'entire visual system' to normal function, maintaining clear eyesight automatically, on its own. The Bates Method does not consist of repetitive, forceful eye exercises, eye stretches... 
     Switching, shifting on close and far objects, 'kind of an exercise' is done in a relaxed way, integrating Dr. Bates natural practices.

Many eyesight improvement teachers (businesses) claim to teach the Bates Method but they do not. They teach tension inducing eye exercises and other unnatural treatments that cause mental strain, eyestrain
, eye muscle tension, headaches, neck tension, unclear vision and other side effects. Eye exercises are not natural and do not produce perfect and permanent clear eyesight. Avoid these teachers. 
Avoid teachers that refuse to give free help for advanced eye, vision conditions, 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 and free when they can afford to. Clear eyesight, Healthy eyes is the birthright of ALL people.  (Dr. Bates always helped the blind, people needing vision improvement. He charged a low price and often trained free in his New York City Clinic, Offices.)


Avoid the crooks charging hundreds of dollars for classes, thousands 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 them. Many people with retina conditions, cataract, glaucoma, partially or full blind, advanced myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, cross eye... have contacted me for free help after teachers have taken their money and not given complete training, ask for more money, have given incorrect training or refused to give free training. It is cruel, inhuman to allow a person to go blind because they have little money. If a teacher does not provide Ophthalmologist Bates Better Eyesight Magazines, Books, Medical Articles and his wife Emily Lierman's book; then the teacher is withholding the true, entire method. Also avoid teachers charging hundreds of dollars for Dr. Bates Better Eyesight Magazines, books.

     (They are free in the Copyright office and some Optometry, Ophthalmology public access college libraries.)


 I notice many teachers' books teach tracing on objects with the nose-feather incorrectly; they have the person looking in space near but not on the object. This is diffusion, the opposite of central-fixation. Their pictures should show the nose-feather, 'central field' tracing line - - - - - directly ON the edge of the object or part of the object you are tracing on. Not off to the side 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; Click Here


Even some teachers that are certified to teach by famous, very good teachers become corrupt; after they get their diploma, they then alter the Bates method, make it unnatural, teach it wrong and speak against their teacher. They do this so the method they teach is different, they can call it 'their own' and charge a high price, direct students away from the honest teacher that certified them. One of my teachers and I experienced this. I have certificates for completing a variety of classes, have written books, created videos and trained many people for free. Some students I have trained, even a few of the previously blind; once cured they then go against me after they set up their own business selling what I taught them. People and certified teachers and certified want to-bes on the Internet Forums have obtained clear eyesight from my free books and Skype, phone training but are now putting my books, teaching down as they try to pull in students from the Internet and charge them $150.00+ per hour. 

                                  Many Teachers Teach Things I Disagree With, That are Unnatural, Wrong, Unsafe; are Not the True Original Bates Method;


Avoid Teachers, websites, discussion groups that advise, sell, teach; Lasik and other Cornea Eye Laser... Surgeries, use of Contact Lenses or Contact Lens Treatments to force the cornea/eye to change shape (Ortho-keratology, Orthoculogy-Ortho C... This can injure the cornea. ), the harmful Plus Lens-Anti-Corrective-Stress Relieving Eyeglasses Method (It CAUSES stress, cataract, detached retina, astigmatism, eye muscle tension-dysfunction, eye and vision impairment...), use of Eyeglasses, Bifocals, Multi-Section and Mono-Vision Glasses, Sunglasses, Tinted/Colored Eyeglass Lenses, Bifocals.., Autostereograms (Artificial 3-D Fusion Exercises, 3-Cups, Magic Eyes Pictures...) that can impair the eye muscles, eyes movement (Read more below.), Eye Muscle Surgery for Crossed/Wandering Eyes (Strabismus), Eye Muscle Stretching (forcing the eyes to look, stay far left, right, up... and keeping the head in the opposite direction), Chiropractic and other unnatural methods.   Try to avoid implanted eyeglass prescriptions for myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, bifocal... in cataract surgery artificial lens replacement in the eyes; it traps you with an eyeglass prescription that cannot be changed-removed without more surgery.  Read our entire Warnings, Directions;   Click Here   Cornea laser Surgery is similar; the Lasik places 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 and can result in blindness.   

    I do not endorse, advise use of lasik, Artificial 3-D eye exercises, Plus Lens method, Contact Lenses, any dangerous, un-natural methods. They lead to vision, eye health impairment, blindness! Avoid all unnatural methods. See the website for more unnatural methods, eyeglasses to avoid. Choose a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist, Ophthalmologist only if an eye doctor is needed. No cornea surgery, no contact lenses, no plus lens method...  A few vision improvement teachers receive $ 'kickbacks' from Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, Opticians, Chiropractors, other businesses by referring students to them through links on their website. Avoid teachers that endorse contacting their 'affiliate' Behavioral Optometrists or other eye doctors, teachers that sell, teach the harmful practices listed 'as to avoid' on this page and website.  See the Chiropractic Warning page; Click Here
     Contact lenses are never a perfect fit for the cornea because the eye-cornea naturally change shape, and often. This occurs more as the eyes, cornea return to normal healthy shape with use of Natural Eyesight Improvement. The contacts will not fit; they can easily scrape, injure, infect and scar the cornea. Some teachers advise, allow use of contact lenses, strong eyeglasses and other harmful methods because they want endorsement from eye doctors to help sell their training, books and the doctors give them affiliate $ for referrals. 


 True Bates Method schools, teachers teach that only reduced weaker eyeglass lenses, usually 20/40 clarity (no contacts) are used and only if needed for driving, safety at work... as vision is improving with the Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement. Example; a person with -3 eyeglasses for myopia will reduce to -2.50 or -2. The eyechart will show about 20/40 clarity with glasses on. Then continue to reduce until seeing clear without glasses. A person with +3 eyeglasses for presbyopia will reduce to +2.50 or +2 and continue to reduce.  Most people can do without glasses when the vision is clear at 20/50. Some at 20/200 or more unclear prefer to go without glasses. No glasses=eyesight improves faster. (Always stay legal, safe for driving, work, hobbies...) Eyeglasses are discontinued permanently as soon as possible.  It is best to try and stop use of eyeglasses immediately. If the prescription is strong, the eyes contain cataract, detached retina, retina, optic nerve problem, glaucoma, any eye health condition ; STOP WEARING EYEGLASSES!  Eyeglasses cause and increase cataract, detached retina, torn, leaking blood vessels, capillaries in the eye, retina and most all eye health problems. Diet, injuries, drugs, chemicals, sinus sprays are some other causes. 

Some teachers, businesses that sell books, courses on Natural Eyesight Improvement sell vitamins, nutrients for the eyes. The health of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder, spleen, digestion... affect vision, the eyes health. Some herbs, vitamins, minerals... can be poisonous, impair body chemistry, hormones, health. Some teachers sell herbs, ingredients in their eye vitamins, formulas that have side effects, can be toxic, even impair the eyes health and clarity of vision. They do not warn about this. Healthy food, good nutrition has a major impact on the clarity of vision, health of the body and eyes. Most vitamins, nutrients... are beneficial. Read the Nutrition Chapter on and avoid products containing bilberry leaf, eyebright, sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, nitrate and other unhealthy herbs, preservatives, ingredients, chemicals. Sulfite's, sulfate, nitrites, MSG, Hydrolyzed... corn, soy, proteins.., aspirin, aspirin type herbs can cause temporary migraine headaches with flashing lights, blind spots in the visual field, impaired memory, a variety of health problems. Read the labels, check all the ingredients. Aspirin causes kidney damage, other health impairment. It's addictive. Acetaminophen, NSAID's cause kidney, liver, joint damage, heart attacks, impairs eye health, vision and is the cause of many health problems. Drug store and also many natural eye drops contain chemicals, toxins.
    When buying bilberry ask for pure organic bilberry fruit, the berries only, no leaf. The berries are excellent, very healthy. Pure bilberry fruit improves eye health and day, night vision. It is an old WW2 Pilots food for clear night vision when flying. They ate it as bilberry jam, no added sugar. True bilberry contains a lot of dark red/purple juice inside the berry and the skin. It temporarily stains the skin when the berry is compressed in the fingers, as a blackberry or wild blueberry does. This juice and entire berry is healthy for the eyes, retina. Lutein and a other nutrients, carrots, spinach... are also beneficial.  (I am not completely against bilberry leaf but have never tried it and I have heard it can be toxic.)

Many Natural Vision Improvement websites have guestbooks, discussion forums, blogs where people can post subjects on the Bates method, Natural Vision Improvement, ask questions and learn from others that have improved their vision. Beware of some Natural Vision Teachers that 'hang out' on Groups, Forums giving only limited help; they often are trying to lure people into taking private lessons for $100.00 to 200.00+ per hour. $300.00+ seminars. Most of the writers on these forums are honest, very helpful, but there are a few persons that go on these forums giving the impression that they are strict Bates Method people, though in reality they are providing links to websites that sell eyeglasses, surgery (eye doctors, lasik plus lens method...) and other harmful products, treatments. A few people state incorrect, harmful advice and/or hide Bates Method information. They try to make it seem difficult, complicated, state that only a highly intellect personality can understand it and be successful. This is false. They corrupt the method with unnatural alternations so they can make it 'their own method' and sell it for a high price. Holding back information=sales of more hourly training. The Bates Method is easy, simple, a 'Do It Yourself' method. Children learn it, are cured and become effective teachers.   Many people obtain clear eyesight by only removing their glasses, learning to relax and shift. A quick 10-30 minute lesson. 

      Be careful downloading free software from websites. A popular Better Eyesight Magazine website gives free software for the computer screen, eyesight but it acts as a virus, slows the computer.., produces pop-ups asking for money. Some teachers link to it on their websites and advertise in their books. It's hard to remove, hides in the computer. You can use Trend Micro's 'HiJack This', Norton tools, AVG... or find a good repair guy to remove it. Some websites, software contain spyware, hacker viruses. The magazines on that website have many spelling mistakes and missing magazine issues. It's been years of people, including myself offering the owner help to fix the magazines but he does not reply. There may be a new 'secret owner' that prefers the magazines to stay incomplete, mis-spelled so they can sell high priced complete copies. Or the owner just moved on, does not care to work on this. 

     For Natural Eyesight Improvement, Bates Method Groups, Forums, Discussion websites and eyesight book reviews, comments on Amazon, Indie... ; Avoid Google, Search Engine... Advertisements for Lasik and other eye surgery, unnatural vision courses, eyeglasses contact lenses, eyedrops, some vitamins, herbs... Most Bates Method group owners place a block on these type of ads but it's hard to all of keep of them from sneaking through as the businesses often change the words in their ads.  Ads pay for the website but it's a risk.

                                               More Warnings, Descriptions For Artificial 3-D Fusion Autostereograms, Magic Eyes Pictures;

Mini 3-D Warning Example; Staring at the Pen Placed in Front of the 2 Red, Blue Circles to Create a Illusion of a 3rd Circle. This strains the eyes, brain, eye musclesI do not teach, advise Artificial 3-D Fusion Repetitive Eye Exercises 'Autostereograms, Magic Eyes pictures'. Some teachers, even a few of the good ones listed on this page teach this but it can impair the eyes convergence, divergence, accommodation, un-accommodation, the eye muscles and eyes movement and cause crossed, wandering eyes, double vision in normal eyes and more so if there is a slight or advanced strabismus or other eye, medical problem, neck injury, tension, mis-aligned skull bones and other conditions. The Artificial 3-D exercises can make a slight strabismus condition worse. Artificial 3-D Fusion exercises are not necessary to obtain clear vision, normal eye movement. It was not taught by Ophthalmologist Bates. There are plenty of other activities, methods to gain clear, balanced vision, coordinated eye movement in Dr. Bates books, Better Eyesight Magazine. Dr. Bates, The Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement teaches different activities, natural ones with true 3-D (3-Dimensional) vision for removing strabismus; crossed, wandering eyes, amblyopia. See the Artificial 3-D Fusion warning page; http:///cleareyesight-batesmethod.infoid103.html/id103.html and in our books. See the picture on the right > Mini 3-D Warning Example; Staring at the pen placed in front of the 2 red, blue circles to create an illusion of a 3rd circle. This strains the eyes, brain, eye muscles. Dr. Bates has a extra similar but different treatment that corrects strabismus. See treatments for squint, crossed, wandering eyes... his book 'Perfect Sight Without Glasses' and the Magazines.   
Some Behavioral Optometrists/Ophthalmologists teach forms of these Artificial 3-D Fusion Exercises a special way for each individual person's Strabismus condition with beneficial results. It should be used for Strabismus (Crossed/Wandering eyes) ONLY. Ask a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist, Ophthalmologist for guidance if, you have tried the Bates Method FIRST and still need additional help. Follow your Doctor's directions. Do not copy it from a book, website. The doctor's exercise can help correct imperfect convergence, divergence, strabismus, fusion when applied correct (if the Bates Method alone does not correct the condition first). It must be practiced with the Guidance of a Bates Method Behavioral Optometrist/Ophthalmologist. The Eye Doctor will teach the student which exercises, activities are to be done for specific conditions, distances that the patients eye movement, convergence, divergence, fusion... needs improvement. The doctor may have the student practice with the 3-D image card placed at a variety of close, middle, far distances, fusing the two images into a 3rd by looking at a variety of different close distances/objects before the card and/or a variety of different far distances/objects beyond the card. Distance of the card may be varied. Spacing between the two images may be at a variety of widths. Merging, fusing images that are further apart being accomplished with advanced fusion training if needed. How many, length of time each or only some of these activities, routines are practiced is determined by the student’s condition; divergence or convergence impairment, degree of impairment and other eye conditions. This is NOT a one size fits all, just carelessly throw it in a book, webpage for everyone treatment!  Only a professional can prescribe a safe, correct, precise routine. Practicing too much at one distance, width, one activity or for the wrong distance… can impair divergence, convergence and cause other eye, vision problems. Some teachers place the Artificial 3-D in their books to attract attention, seem professional. They should warn about the side effects.
Most Natural Vision teachers do not teach this the correct way, do not warn about the side effects of doing it wrong because they cannot prescribe for every individual person's condition in the class, in books and usually do not know the entire, correct Behavioral Optometry treatment. Even a Behavioral Optometrist, Ophthalmologist needs the best training and experience. They also need to learn the Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement so they can give their patient an option; true natural (Bates Method) treatment or, if needed, try the artificial 3-D and be sure it's done correct, and apply both methods; the Bates Method and the professional Artificial 3-D.   Accommodation, un-accommodation of the ye, lens work-occur with the eyes convergence, divergence, fusion. All are affected, improved or impaired, when the exercises are done correct or incorrect.

The Artificial 3-D exercises do produce a natural 3-D effect created by the eyes, brain, left and right hemispheres, visual cortex. Seeing the correct fused image indicates the brain, eyes are working together, but; I call the exercises Artificial 3-D because it is not the normal way the person uses the eyes to see an object clear. The Artificial 3-D has the person staring into space before or beyond two objects placed in the peripheral field, merging these two into a 3rd object which is an illusion of being in the central field, when in reality it is 2 areas/objects of the peripheral field combined. So; the person is using the peripheral vision to see with. This prevents Dr. Bates natural practice of central-fixation (true central vision). Shifting is also prevented. If any eye movement occurs it is an unnatural movement.  True completely natural 3-D vision for healthy eyes, brain function, clear vision occurs when looking directly at the object of visual attention, directly at the distance the object is at, in the true central field, the mind, eyes 'mental-visual attention' on/at that object, distance and the eyes visual attention is moving 'shifting' part to part upon the object.  See Dr. Bates book 'Perfect Sight Without Glasses' and 'Better Eyesight Magazine'.  
Try the Bates Method first. Relaxation, central-fixation, shifting, switching close and far, bead string, pens in a row, strabismus swings, memory, imagination, natural movement, left and right brain hemisphere activation and integration, color treatment and other natural methods are most always all that is needed.
