This is one of the most amazing natural sight rebuilding example I have ever heard. Meir Schneider was born without sight, yet now he can see. Meir refused to give in to his blindness and instead began an intensive exploration of sight and self-healing systems. Miracle Eyesight Method is Meir Schneider’s original bestselling audio program for better eye health. It covers the full theoretical foundations of natural eyesight improvement plus Schneider’s complete set of techniques for exercising your eyes back to health. It also includes an eye chart.
This uniquely qualified authority on vision teaches his innovative methods for improving vision naturally. This step-by-step course comes complete with special charts for exercising the eyes back to health. Listeners can use these techniques to see the world with less strain, greater acuity, and a more spacious visual field.
In 1864 a test for visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) was devised by Herman Snellen, a Dutch opthalmologist. Using the eyesight of his assistant Snellen created a chart with letters on it. The “snellen” chart has different sized letters on it and forms the basis of modern eye exams. Snellen decided what a person should be able to see when standing 20 feet away from the eye chart. 20/20 vision is a term which means that you can see clearly at 20 feet what a person with normal vision can see. If you have 20/40 vision this means that you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 40 feet. 20/20 does not mean “perfect” vision, it only indicates the clarity or sharpness of distance vision. You can also have vision that is better than normal vision, for example a person with 20/10 vision can see things at 20 feet what a normal person can see standing 10 feet from the chart.

There are other vision skills including peripheral vision, eye coordination, depth perception, focusing ability and color vision that contribute to your overall vision.
Over many years a teacher had observed that a lot of her students became more short sighted (myopic) nearer the end of term, so much so that they could hardly see the writing on the blackboard. She began to use the bates method of eye exercise using an eye chart on the wall. By the end of that term all children maintained their vision.
After eight years of using eye exercises few minutes each day with her students none of her students became short sighted. The school board and local opticians objected however and claimed that these eye exercises interfered with the school routine, and it was discontinued.
The bates method of eye treatment, as the name suggests, was discovered by opthalmologist William H Bates, M.D. Dr Bates was born in Newark, New Jersey, and taught in several universities during his career. The full bates method is a series of exercises that first relax the eye muscles and then retrain them to focus efficiently and without strain.
Bates found that most people get visual defects during school. The education system is one of duress where children are forced to sit for hours each day memorizing material that have no bearing on their lives. This type of education does not utilize all of the minds faculties and senses, therefore a “dulling” occurs. The same is of animals in captivity where the environment is concrete and closely enclosed; these animals develop myopia – short sightedness. Once the eyes have become “lazy”, the prescribed treatment are glasses or contact lenses. Bates described glasses as “crutches” for the eye. A habit of straining and tension is cultivated and persists unnoticed.
So what can you do? You can start exercising your eyes right now. You do not need expensive equipment – you don’t even need an eye chart. For example, try sitting relaxedly in a chair, maintaining good posture. Cover one of your eyes with your palm. Find some reading material such as a book or a magazine. Hold this about 6-8 inches away from your eye. Make sure there is a wall or something to focus on about 7 feet or so in front of you. Now, focus on the written material close up. Once you can see this, look at the object 7 feet in front of you until it becomes as clear, only spending a couple of seconds on this. Now alternate the two for a minute or two. Then change eyes. Simple!
