Even people born blind hopefully have tactile memory and imagination...
  • NancyNancy on Eye ContactDale, thanks so much for your thoughts, and good for you for your awareness! I do think those first minus lenses, or a new pair of stronger ones, often cause folks to back away visually from that stark too-clear view,...

  • AvatarDale on Eye ContactVery interesting article. I wore plus glasses for many years on and off, but several years ago adult onset myopia required me to wear a -.75 correction full time. I became very aware of my surroundings because of the high...
  • AvatarCindy on Blindness Relieved by a New Method of TreatmentI wonder if people with cataracts can benefit from the bates method and not have surgery? Also, is it possible for someone born blind to have site or some site? Must they have been able to have sight to recall...
  • DavidDavid on A Clinical and Experimental Study of Physiological OpticsI agree, it's good to look at other perspectives on a problem like this including Jacob Liberman's. I'm big on analyzing data, but at the same time I have to be careful because there's more things going on that are...
  • NancyNancy on Can Cataracts Be Healed Naturally?Vicky, cataracts, like most if not all vision restrictions, come from straining to see. You can read with strain, or without. You can write with strain, or without it. You might need to look in the distance more, or go...
  • AvatarVicky on Can Cataracts Be Healed Naturally?Cataracts were diagnosed last January and the optician expected me to be ready for surgery next month (a year later). I really don't like the idea, having avoided wearing glasses since I became myopic in my late 20s. I am...
  • AvatarTareq Yassine on A Clinical and Experimental Study of Physiological OpticsI like how determined Dr. Bates was with this.

  • DavidDavid on Stop Wearing Glasses and Improve Your VisionThat's great Ginny, thanks for sharing! This type of thing does happen. That optometrist probably still wrote this one off as a mistake on your previous prescription, and in his mind there's still no such thing as what happened with...
  • AvatarGinny on Stop Wearing Glasses and Improve Your VisionMy vision started getting weak when I was in the fourth grade. Every school year, I tried to get a seat closer to the blackboard so I could see what the teacher was writing. Started wearing glasses in high school...
  • NancyNancy on Half the world? Not if we can help it.Good point Gwen, and me too! I've done quite a bit of work around accepting and appreciating my good-enough vision. I was trained as a child that anything less than perfection in school was failure, and I seem to have...
  • DavidDavid on Blindness Relieved by a New Method of TreatmentI think it's a useful practice for people to treat their eyes' vision, particularly blurry vision, as merely a helpful data gathering tool, not taking it too seriously, and putting their attention more into the images in their mind of...
