This book is a compilation of notes, research, and personal experiences I started collecting in 1986 when as a computer professional I noticed my eyesight blurring after long hours of computer work. My studies began when I was in a metaphysical bookstore one day in 1986 and noticed a flyer from The School of Better Eyesight advertising a way to correct and restore vision naturally without the use of glasses, contact lenses, or surgery. I called the number, attended a few classes, corrected my vision, and subsequently signed up for the instructor’s training course so I would know how to help other people improve their vision too. I spent the following 2-1/2 years doing exactly that.
The methods I studied and researched are based on the work of Dr. William H. Bates (December 23, 1860 – July 10, 1931). He developed natural methods for correcting eyesight from experiences in his own opthalmology practice. Today, his methods are practiced and taught by many people throughout the world.
In his practice, Dr. Bates noticed that vision fluctuates daily and looked for the circumstances that cause vision to fluctuate towards normal and the circumstances that cause vision to blur. He concluded that normal vision requires healthy visual habits, and that people with blurred vision can consciously learn and practice these habits to normalize their vision. Because of his success in his research and work, Dr. Bates concluded that vision is really 90 percent mental and only 10 percent physical.
