Putting on glasses is not much different than:
- providing insulin for a diabetic
- stopping inflammation with anti-inflammatories
- lowering high blood pressure with anti-hypertensives
- killing a fever with aspirin
- treating arthritis with pain killers
None of these programs restore the body’s functioning. All they do is put a bandaid on the problem; lessen our symtpoms; but they do not resolve the underlying issues.
Consequently, the underlying issues continue to go unattended. So what do we need to do with our eyesight? We certainly don’t want to have our environment a blurry experience. So what do we do?
1) Recognize that it has been proven that:
|“If glasses are worn continuously over time the poor vision will generally become worse. Essentially what glasses do is lock the eyes into their refractive state and in order to see through your lenses you have to maintain the poor vision that the lenses are designed to correct.”
Wm H Bates: Perfect Sight Without Glasses 1920
2) Recognize that laser surgery is under major attach:
In 2008, the FDA actually officially stated that they would do a full re-evaluation of the safety of laser eye surgery, specifically due to the high amount of complaints it receives on the subject every month. http://www.visionwithoutglasses.com/?hop=natmentor
Lasik eye surgery may be pitched as a “safe and easy alternative to glasses,” but more than half of the people who have it or other laser vision-correction surgery still need to wear glasses at least some of the time. That’s according to a Consumer Reports National Research Center survey of 793 adults who had laser vision-correction surgery in the past eight years. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2013/02/lasik-eye-surgery/index.htm
3) Understand that poor eyesight is the result of bad habits:
“It has been demonstrated in thousands of cases that all abnormal action of the external muscles of the eyeball is accompanied by a strain or effort to see, and that with the relief of this strain the action of the muscles becomes normal and all errors of refraction disappear.” – Perfect Sight Without Glasses, Ch 9. http://www.visionwithoutglasses.com/?hop=natmentor
Now with this item, I have to make a personal note. At the age of 27, I was told by an ophthalmologist that I would be legally blind by the time I was 30. That I was come back in and start taking lessons on how to be blind!!
Utilizing a variety of yoga eye exercises, I returned 1.5 years later with 19/20 vision – that’s better than normal!!!
4) Work with Dr. Bates’ program which applies to most visual problems, or one of many other programs that eliminate:
|Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)|
|Presbyopia (Old-Age Sight)|
|Poor Night Vision|
4) Do your research…even the American Optometric Association has had to admit:
