Will it work for me? - David - 05-20-2010

Will the Bates method work for my _____ condition?

It depends. This is an educational process that requires you spend some time at nearly every day to make any progress. There are many cases of reversing common conditions such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, as well as correcting conditions such as strabismus. There have been cases of improvement or complete recovery from diseases of the eye such as cataract, glaucoma and inflammations. There is disagreement on precisely how these various conditions are benefited, but the common factor among them all seems to be a misuse of the eyes leading to feelings of eyestrain and tension. When people relearn to use their eyes in the correct way, the entire visual system appears to work as a cohesive unit to self-correct and promote clear vision, whatever it takes.
