Book Description

15 Aug 2013
Imagine easily reading menus by candlelight and impressing your friends by doing so with your own healthy eyes, free from crutches. Or imagine no longer peering over glasses to see people across the room. Won’t that be nice?! If these thoughts appeal to you, this book is for you! Whether your age is 46-ish or 86+, and even if you are only six and just learning to read, this book can be a valuable tool for helping you get past your reading challenges. The methods outlined in this book are simple, easy to learn and just as easy to apply. It does take some time and persistence, but the rewards are huge – a return to natural clear vision, healthier eyes, and easy, glasses-free reading. From the foreword by Ray Gottlieb, O.D., Ph.D.: "I’m pleased to see that Esther Joy van der Werf has written Read Without Glasses at Any Age now. Its publication brings a fresh look at Bates’ work at a time when it’s really needed. Her book gets straight to the point. It is free of fluff and true to Bates’ approach and includes plenty of his original writing about his own and his patients’ experiences of learning to see small print without artificial aids. Esther’s little book takes just an hour or two to read but success comes by learning, doing and staying with the process until it becomes part of who you are, all day, every day for the rest of your life."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. Well and clearly written. Complete ! 16 Sep 2013
By D. Bergkamp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read this book I can say it has been very useful reading journey or experience. The
information is thorough and complete and gave me a constant smile.
The reason for my smile was the clear quality of explaining !
In my opinion the book is a very interesting buy for both teachers ( I am a
Bates NVI teacher ) and people with presbyopia. But also when you are interested in any other
eyecondition(s) it is for certain worth the buy. Topics like central fixation are very often not very easy
to understand. I have not found a book giving a better explanation ! The information and instruction
are simple, exact and logical and you can experience things while reading.

It helped me improve my own small print reading vision in just 2 weeks ! I could not read small print
at all with my left eye. Now I can. The only 2 things I did every day for about 3 or 5 minutes was
reading small print and using some of the tools provided by this book. By the way the name for not
having the same acuity in your eyes anisometropia. This is mentioned in this book. This book
triggered me to test both my eyes. I did not know I had this inbalanced eye condtition.

Just to emphasize how complete this book is. Every reference is given. Which also shows how much
.... the author has put in the book. I wanted to say effort, but I can also say how much interest the
author has in the subject presbyopia ( or old age sight) in combination with NVI
I have also read a lot of great sentences which I can directly use for my teachings. When books
become this well written teachers become less important. However Esther advices to contact your
local Bates teacher as well. I also think that is wise thing to do. To make sure you do learn and reach
your full potential and do not make mistakes or slow down in your relearnings. Make sure you make
your progress measurable. Or determine at which position your vision becomes a challenge. This
makes going this route very motivating. Accept where you are at this moment do not accept to stay
there. Find a teacher who teaches and understands the right vision habits. ( Sketch, Breath and Blink
and the main principles. If your teacher only talks about exercises find another teacher. Important
themes are Relaxatiom movement and Central fixation. And of course imagination. ) Most teacher
can teach you the basics very quickly. The law of adaptation is always present in the right and in the
wrong direction. Without any doubt this is a 5 star book !!!
Kind regards, D. Bergkamp.
