Natural Eyesight Improvement Books and Information

There are lots of vision improvement books, courses, audio books, charts, tools, you name it. Before you hand over your hard earned cash you can do a search on google for free information. On Google Books you can view the book that started it all – Better eyesight without glasses by W H Bates (the link will take you to a version that you can read online, for free). The book was a revolution – and a shock to the established ophthalmologists. It is strange however that they are still taught at college and medical school that eyesight cannot be taught naturally. Another great resource full of downloadable e-books and magazines about improving eyesight naturally is http://www.cleareyesight.info.

Vision Chart

How else would you monitor the progress of your natural vision exercises than test them with the Snellen eye chart. There are many sites out there that have printable examples of this chart, but the best one I have come across is from I-See.org. This site has many versions of the chart, and the beauty of the thing is that it is free! The downloads section of the site has a printable PDF version of the chart as well as postscript. Enjoy!

Feel free to post other links and resources that you might find!

A machine that can improve eyesight?

As I love the subject of natural vision improvement I am constantly on the lookout for new ways and technologies for natural vision improvement. When I came across the “EyeRelax” I was immediately struck with disbelief. Here is what they say about themselves:

EyeRelax is an award winning visual-spectrum medical device clinically programmed to improve shortsightedness or myopia commonly cause by tired eyes.

Its patented light-spectrum technology stimules the retina cells and vision nerves to improve the photosensitivity of the eyes. It is also enhanced with visual near-far stimulation to effectively prevent and control myopia caused by tired ciliary muscle.

EyeRelax is the most effective, safe, non-invasive, non-medicinal device for the control of myopia.

National University of Malaysia (UKM) and SIM University Singapore, have just successfully concluded a study on the effectiveness of EyeRelax therapy.

I will have to investigate this a lot more, and at the price of $580 USD a LOT of research would have to be done before you purchased it. If it does work then it is cheaper than laser eye surgery. Find out more from their website.

Vision Correction

Glasses have been around for centuries to help improve and provide clearer vision. More modern methods of vision correction such as contact lenses and eye surgery are more advanced, but actually treat the symptoms rather than the cause, just as glasses do. Even pinhole glasses have been used to focus light rays on the retina.

It is believed that glasses promote further deterioration of the eyes, and prevent natural healing. Glasses put additional strain on the eyes. Natural vision coaches recommend their clients stop wearing, or at least get a reduced prescription, when using natural vision correction methods. Natural vision coaches teach that if the eyes are relaxed and reconditioned, vision will improve. Eye exercises are used to train coordination and flexibility for muscles in and around the eye. They strengthen the muscles and nerves in the brain and vision system to help correct vision.

Relaxed central vision is a key to natural eyesight improvement according to the natural vision coaches, or Bates Method practitioners. However there is some debate whether natural vision correction is valid. For example it is not recognized by the American Optometric Association.

People that practice natural vision correction usually are not licensed professionals however; some licensed professionals may practice natural correction on the side.

The benefits of natural vision correction are that it is a non-invasive, natural, and holistic method that can be used alongside other vision aids such as glasses and contact lenses. There is no risk involved whilst trying natural vision correction methods. The downside is that it can take time to notice any benefits.
