5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping the Bates method alive! 31 Dec 2006
By Last Mohican - Published on
Dozens of books have been published on the Bates method of vision improvement, and like this one, some written 50 or more years ago have been reprinted due to the growing popularity of the method. Thousands of people have learned that the method does indeed work, and more and more eye doctors are waking up to that fact despite some long-held theories not being in agreement with it. The author, as of the original publication date (1955), had worked with over 2,800 people whose visual deficiencies ranged from nearsightedness and farsightedness to more serious problems such as glaucoma and cataracts. In the book she includes many modification to techniques that Dr. Bates established, to produce better results, and introducing variety to help eliminate boredom. She also introduces the use of color in exercises, not just black-and-white eye charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bates Method At Its Best 10 Feb 2008
By Sbri - Published on
This book includes the basic Bates Method of vision improvement and more. I have worked with various vision re-training teachers and find that this book is very comprehensive in what it presents. Do not expect overnight miracles when doing the Bates Method. We take seeing for granted when we have good eyesight, but when vision gets impaired we have to learn that seeing is as much a re-training of mental processes and attitude as it is doing the techniques or exercises presented. The Bates Method is not for everybody; some people just don't want to do the exercises. For them it's better to wear glasses or contacts.
