This review is from: The Secret of Perfect Vision: How You Can Prevent and Reverse Nearsightedness (Paperback)This book is about how to improve shortsightedness. It isn't very well written. For example, it explains what myopia, hyperopia and emmetropic eyesight is several times and yet not other technical words such as "binocular fusion". It gives exercises to improve your vision, but they are written in very technical wording and are very hard to understand.
I went onto the forum for this book to look for some answers. I was going to give this book 3 stars, but I've decided to give it one star because of the forum. I was a bit taken aback, because I had sent a couple of messages asking for clarification of the exercises, and I was accused of "hijacking a thread", and posting "a long list of you initial problems", and was told "This isn't a service hotline". The author himself wasn't rude to me, but another "expert".
It is a real shame - I really wanted to at least slow down my eyesights deterioration, and I thought it was great that someone might have had the right idea of how to go about it. Instead, I've wasted £15 because I didn't learn a thing. I only learned that (supposedly) short-sightedness can be completely reversed, even when the eyeball has elongated. When I eventually worked out what his "Power Vision System" exercises were - they basically involved stretching the eye's outer muscles, and a Bates exercise. That's it. It is laughable. This guy isn't even qualified - the book actually says this.
