I'm sorry there were things in your life that were hard to look at back then, and I'm happy for your growing, and ongoing, awareness. Good for you! Linda Amato on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyNancy this is powerful information. I can relate. At 40 I had cataract surgery and then at 49 in my other eye. There was tons of stuff going on in my life that I had trouble seeing. Thank you Ashley Alfonse on Converting Vision Between Diopters and 20/xxI am a -7.75 and -7.5, so I think that is 20/875 and 20/850 respectively. You might be a 20/1400? Just a guess though. Jenny on Converting Vision Between Diopters and 20/xxI wrote a reply to myself about how I mis-spelled asymptotes, but, although I tapped hard on POST, it wouldn't do it. Jenny on Converting Vision Between Diopters and 20/xxI have crystal clear, vibrant, colour-saturated, musical dreams, highly 3D. But my vision has been myopic with ambyopia/diplopia since I was 7. My brain saw differently from outside world when my eyes were bandaged after my surgery at 7. This...Nancy on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?Rony, 3 cheers for you! Your daughter is a lucky girl. If I even think of putting on glasses now, I can feel my face tighten up. My visual system doesn't like them, and I'm listening. Keep up the good...Rony on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?I want to share that with Bates, so far I have stopped using glasses, and my daughter, the skeptical one has succeeded in reducing her number.

Alvina Baizhumova on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?Thank you very much, Darrel, for your encouragement! Darrel on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?That's great to hear Alvina. The Bates Method is very psychotherapeutic when done properly. It does so much more than improve vision. Glasses, contacts and lasers can never do this amazing mental effect and that I think is a major...Darrel on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?Sheila, may I also add that in the very same Bates book, he says (p.105): "...glasses should be discarded at the beginning of the treatment. When this cannot be done without too great discomfort, or when the patient has to...David on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?Right, other eye conditions and health conditions in general can be improved. Here I'm mainly making the point that refractive errors are not diseases... which is what some people seem to think. David on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?Ok, I'll look into it!

There is a great misunderstanding out there that computer screens, television screens are 'bad for the eyes' where in truth it is the unrelaxed...Sheila on The Story You Tell Yourself / Can I Heal My Eyes?So appreciate your words and your purpose, David. Thank you.
