For most people their sight is their most important sense. This is probably due to the fact that about 80% of the information we take in via our sense is through our eyes.
If you have impaired vision as I do, we all know the standard options:
Laser Eye Surgery
There is one more option, the Bates Method that most people aren’t aware of. Developed by a New York ophthalmologist he published his method in 1919 (yes 1919!). People with
Myopia or short-sightedness
Hypermertropia or long-sightedness
Presbyopia or “old-age” sight i.e. loss of reading vision as you get older
have all responded to the Bates Method.
In 1957, C A Hackett a Bates Method Teacher (the Bates Method is a instruction manual), analysed 10 years of her work in which she treated 2180 patients with problems with their eye sight. She found 75% achieved lasting improvement and 45% were able to do without their glasses completely.
Right now you are probably thinking, “if this is so great, why haven’t I heard of it before?”. That’s a good question, and the answer probably is because it’s a way of re-educating your eyesight. Which means it takes time and definitely isn’t a quick fix.
