Default The Bates Method

Hi guys! I am new and decided to join after a few days of reading here on the forums. This seems like my kind of place!

Anyways, I wanted to tell you all about the success I have had using the Bates Method for the improvement of my eyesight. I started using the method on a fluke after my eye doctor mentioned that my pupils were too big to get lasik (not that I would've anyway). But this reminded me after reading online a while before about the Bates Method. So I got back online and found a book about it and decided this was something I was going to do.

I have now been using the method since earlier this year in January and have had great success with it. I started out at -2.50 in both eyes with one having a slight astigmatism. I started getting really bad headaches when I used my glasses, especially when driving and went back for another appointment to get my eyes checked in August. They improved tremendously and at the time were measured to be -1.25. I read online that this is like going from 20/200 vision to about 20/50 so no wonder the headaches from the glasses! The eye doctor was shocked by the improvement and was wondering what I was doing to get them so much better like this. I then explained about the method to him and was open-minded to the idea. My eyes are most likely even better now and I hope by sometime next year that they will be back to normal again. I just wanted to let others know about it.

Good for you!

Many years ago I had a friend who wore coke bottle glasses. She did the bates method and got rid of them.

I also saw someone with very poor vision get it restored during a reichian therapy workshop. The therapist worked with one of the students and a lot of anger and screaming was released out through the eye area. She was considered legally blind. The release came on suddenly when we were out sitting by the pool during a break. Suddenly she jumped up and started yelling "I can see I can see" jumping all around then she dove into the pool. I'll never forget it.


I ran into her at a later date and she could still see well.

Do you have a Bates book you recommend? Is a therapist absolutley necessary?

Hi there Arrowwind! Sorry it has been a while since I checked back. That's great you had a friend who healed too using the Bates Method! Do you know how long it took her to get them back to normal? I am just curious as I know it can be a long process.

That's wonderful about the workshop. Just amazing how much our eyesight is affected by our emotions. I know Dr. Bates talked about emotions as well as a part of our vision problems.

I haven't found that a therapist for me has been necessary, but maybe some people will. When I planned on doing the method, I researched a lot of different books and finally decided on "Relearning to See: Improve Your Eyesight Naturally!" by Thomas Quackenbush. I felt like the book has been enough for me to understand the method. I also found it so informative and interesting! I love all the facts about eyes throughout the book. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating the Bates Method, along with lots of other information that can be helpful in gaining back good eyesight.

Cant say for sure how long it took her... but I am guessing about a year at least.
