View Full Version : Taking off the glasses.

28th December 2006, 07:05 AM
Does anyone remember this massive thread at AP? Since the server is currently down, I can't get to it to see if it's still there. I need to access it for my fiancee.

She has, up until recently, relied on glasses for astigmatism. They broke, and now she claims her eyesight is amazing compared to what it was.

Anyways, if anyone could help, I'd appreciate it.

I have been trying to improve my eyesight by lowering my prescription little by little and doing eye exercises.

I'm wearing glasses/lenses which are -0.25 to -0.5 lower than my actual prescription. When I feel that I see clearly enough with my lowered glasses, I switch to lower prescription.

I've taken it slow, and I have managed to get my eyesight from -4.5 down to about -3.

The bates method is the only one I'm aware of at the moment..


If you are willing to pay a little for e-book then you could try this:

There's an excellent book about this called Realearning To See, by Thom Quackenbush.
Ed. Admin please see: http://forums.astraldynamics.com/viewtopic.php?t=186

It is based on the Bates method - in fact, you will find a lot of Bates articles in it , adapted to modern living. The whole purpose of the book is to allow us to relearn good vision habits and incorporate them in our everyday lives. It has great detailed chapters and colored illustration. It is quite a big book too - 521 pages! Let's say that if you needed one vision improvement book, it would be that one.

I bought it a year ago. I stopped wearing my glasses non stop and performed the exercises and my prescription soon became too strong for me. I'm reading the book for the second time at the moment because I'm going to university in september and I would like to get a lower prescription before then.
