Would this OD qualify as a Bates Teacher?
#1
Dear David,

This person cleared her distant vision (and refractive status)
back to normal. Would she qualify as a
Bates teacher, and would you recommend
her for that purpose?

What do you think? Smile

What do other posters think of working with
this person?

I feel it is exceedingly clear that this OD does not support the Bates Method.

The author of that story cured her vision though passive adaptation to under prescribed lenses and later though techniques that were not elaborated on.

I would call this OD a behavioral optometrist.
