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.

PRK – Photorefractive Keratectomy

PRK is used to correct or reduce myopia (shortsightedness or nearsightedness), hyperopia (longsightedness or farsightedness), and astigmatism. The PRK procedure flattens part or all of the cornea which in turn allow focal point of light to focus more closely on the retina. PRK differs from Lasik in that it does not create a permanent flap in the cornea, instead it uses the excimer laser exclusively from start to finish, essentially scraping the top level of the cornea. The benefits of PRK is that it is simple and non-intrusive as compared to lasik. As with all surgery there can be complications.
