  • NancyNancy on I Don’t Want to See That!Ismat, your situation does sound a lot like mine. I'd say be grateful for the strengths you did develop, like being a top student and learning how to learn, and give your visual system the attention now it didn't get...
  • Ismat Aldmour on I Don’t Want to See That!Very interesting analysis , to your own case, Nancy, which I believe it is very similar to my case and probably to the many cases of others. In my case, I believe I knew what ignited my vision degradation at...
  • Christopher Lane on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyStaying focused requires courage. Focusing is not just a visual sense; it's a base for mindful action, response or reaction; each has its emotional content from past memories. All 5 senses connect us to the "now" moment. Staying connected is...
  • NancyNancy on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out VisuallyThanks, Margaret! More and more, this is the basis of my personal work, and my work with clients, whether they come to me for vision help or other issues. First we have to recognize the unhelpful pattern, then let go...
  • Margriet Bierens on Reaching Out Socially, Reaching Out Visually“Physical problems have an underlying emotional component” that is my belief too. The problem there for me is finding that component and though I do my very best I didn’t find it until now. Thank you for the articles Nancy,...
  • NancyNancy on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Tracy, your daughter is very lucky to have you on her side, guiding her to have a more relaxed approach to seeing well. I see most of my clients over Skype, and many are in other countries than I am....
  • Tracy on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Hi Nancy, thanks so much for your tips. Your kind words do ease my worries quite a bit. And it feels so good to have your backup and makes me feel that im not alone after all. No one in...
  • Tom on Noticing Minor Vision ImprovementsThanks, Nancy. I much appreciate the further clarification. Many times now I feel a sort of lightness or freedom on my walks due to the apparent improving situation. I wasn't concerned about my inability to "rack focus" like a camera,...
  • NancyNancy on Noticing Minor Vision ImprovementsTom, 2 comments. First, anything which you enjoy seeing, like the bare branches on your vision walks, will help your visual channel. You are teaching your eyes and brain that it's fun to see well, so they'll want to do...
  • NancyNancy on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Yes, my business card says I can help you with your eyesight, and your insight. 😉 And I think these are very connected!
  • Catherine on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!You’re right. I apologizeto everyone for talking up a storm in the comments. I will take a good look at that book! Thanks Tom.
  • Tom on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Catherine == We need to tread lightly as this is Nancy's article and discussion, so I'll be brief. I read more than half of Dr Bates' bookn (and need to finish it). I stopped because some aspects of his method...
  • Catherine on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Thank you for the reply and link. It’s very insightful. So basically what happened before all this if I remember correctly is that ai had really bad hyper tension causing optic nerve swelling ( this was caused by a false...
  • Tom on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Catherine == I'm NOT AT ALL QUALIFIED to say what you're experiencing with regard to pin-hole glasses. My opinion is based only on observations and research pertaining to my own weird situation. I don't quite understand what you're seeing. You...
  • Catherine on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Thanks for responding Tom! Also the pin holes sadly down get rid of the double gision and just reflect the real image but they do line up the multiple images as one images. So do you think that’s still an...
  • Tom on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Hey Catherine == I didn't see your reply at first. Thanks for letting me/us know. I've been using $5.00 +diopter reading glasses for several years now, but back when I used to wear prescription lenses one vision exam would suggest...
  • Tom on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Thanks for the additional link. I've read about 2/3 of Dr Bates' Better Eyesight Without Glasses (must finish it) and while I "get it" I was having trouble understanding the concept of "shifting." My recent experiments with Open Focus have...
  • Catherine on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Hey, Tom. I did get a visual field test done and it was normal so my ophthalmologist said it wad most likely due to an astigmatism. I still don’t know if I can trust that diagnosis but I don’t really...
  • Tom on Noticing Minor Vision ImprovementsI want to "report back" on my progress. For a couple of weeks now I've been dutifully and systematically combining SEEING DEPTH with OPEN FOCUS during my Vision Walks. I'm lucky to be able to walk through a forested area...
  • NancyNancy on I Have To Improve My Vision Now!Tom, yes, I agree with everything you said. Bates' central fixation is key to clear sight, and relaxed awareness of the periphery is too. Here's a post on central fixation which may add to your understanding: https://www.iblindness.org/1411/how-do-i-practice-central-fixation/. And yes also...
