Vision story
#3
I didn't use weaker glasses or plus lens glasses. I read the original 1920's Bates book, stories from the Clinic and the better eyesight magazines.

What helped was a mixture.

At first central fixation helped me the most; ie seeing what you are looking at best rather than seeing on plane of vision like when one looks from spectacles. Also using imagination helped too.

Lately I have had huge jumps in vision by relaxation of my body particularly my shoulders, arms and hands where I tend to hold a lot tension and trying to maintain good relaxed posture as opposed to hunching up or slouching. I particularly noticed successful results relaxing and watching TV.

I am a big believer in increasing the distance that one sees best gradually like the child in the Bates book did with her school friends. This has been my best way to permanently improve my distance clarity. If one does not practice looking further with clarity the vision will not change.

I found also permanent improvement by practicing the big C shifting that Bates recommends. It made chart letters blacker for me.

Another key for me is to look at say a sign in distance but only look at bottom corner, blink and read as normal. Trying to see a point rather than a whole word.

Blinking I find essential in cases of blur. Or to simply look away. I don't think it helps for the brain to be reminded of its blur as it affects one's imagination and thus eye sight. Apart from perhaps when trying to see worse in order to avoid a particular strain.
