Jonathan Barnes, author of Improve your Eyesight is a living testament to the Bates Method: he says that his eyesight has improved considerably since he started using the special techniques, and that he no longer needs to wear his glasses.
The Bates Method is best described as a plan for re-educating your eyesight, with errors which cause short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and "old-age sight" corrected by a range of techniques which promote the healing and self-regulatory powers of the body and encourage the reduction or, in some cases, the elimination of the error.
Barnes walks the reader through the history and theory behind the method, which works on the basis that the fundamental problems with anyone's eyesight begins with "strain", before beginning his explanations of the techniques involved.
Improve your Eyesight is a fascinating book which offers hope to people who struggle with poor eyesight, but is perhaps most effective for people whose eyes are simply tired from the stress and strains of everyday life, from pollution to sitting in front of a computer screen.
In truth, everyone, no matter how sceptical, can benefit from Improve your Eyesight, as each of the techniques leave your eyes feeling clear and refreshed, and at the end of a hard day, isn't that what we all long for?. --Susan Harrison
