Some call it natural vision improvement which is more like for us that have/had poor vision, but in my opinion

it is spreading to good vision habits that are good for everyone to know and practice in their life. It would be good to know as using vision is affecting reading, learning, decision making and is immerging from attention and imagination and memory. So, there is where I see the importance of this, combined with deep feeling of unhappiness or too many worries that every child put in glasses experiences. A few things we do not know about eyes functions and what happens to the eye when we are wearing glasses which is good for everyone to know, and then will give you some links you can do your own research if some more interest arises with you.

the clear seeing is effortless; the main reason for poor vision is trying to see and straining to see clearly we need to blink regularly, it is refreshing eyes with tears and gives to the retinal cells a short break from light we also need to breathe, nice deep abdominal breathing is the best. We usually under stress have stiff abdominal muscles and have just quick shallow breathing. This affects vision poor posture may result into poor vision as eye is trying to balance body with the environment children often become short-sighted in their early years of schooling in simple reason of fear of unknown. How, you might wander. Well, they just cant match new information with the memory and imagination. Or of too much ambition to know everything quickly. It is well known that short-sighted people are achieving very high distinction results, for example. So, it is not that of too much reading the vision becomes poor, but is related to how we read. We should blink and breathe, then have a regular breaks, look into distance every 10-20 mins. Maintain good posture while reading, not becoming stiff for hours while reading good book. Sport and outdoors is very good for maintaining good vision. Especially tennis, jumping on trampoline. Eyes also need good circulation, so any facial massage could help, although there are some acupressure points for good vision, I heard in China they practise those. Good nutrition: carrots as we all know and all yellow and red fruit and vegetables

In relation to these functions of the eye: - Effortless, no staring, no trying to see, no straining - free movement in all directions - fluctuation or tremors, called saccadic eye movements; eye is in constant micro movement and that is how it is picking up the light and creating images in the vision centre in the brain; the more movement the more light and the better images we see - changes shape to see distances (shortens) and close (lengthens) here the role to this is by 6 muscles that are around the eye. - central-fixation (this is the term introduced by Dr. Bates who is the father of Natural Vision Improvement, Ill give you reference at the end of the letter), meaning we can see the best just a small area where the axe is pointing. This is found as a problem with people with poor vision, they are trying to see big area with looking just in one point without movement. Thats why we need more eye movements.

There are some recommended exercises or better say daily practises: - palming; just sit and close the eyes with the hands so no light is coming in. this should give relaxation to the eye nerve as there is no stimuli coming in - sunning; this means with closed eyes face the sun, for a few mins. This is not dangerous as is recommended in early morning and late afternoon, and with closed eyes. This improves sun tolerance and is making pupil more flexible to open- close which is its function, good to combine a few mins palming and sunning interchangeably. - Long Swing, while standing or sitting turn your head form left to right and back in 180 degrees. Eyes just look straight, breathe and blink softly, not sticking the eyes for anything particular, and should get the feeling of the room moving in opposite direction of head. This can be done before going to bed as it relaxes eyes and the whole body and can improve sleeping - Shift, this can be done on distance on letter or any other object by shifting the eyes from left side of letter to right, or up-down or diagonally. Here also you should get the feeling of the letter moving in opposite direction of the eye movement. People with poor vision cant get that feeling, and also need to start with bigger distances, and their shifting goes slower. When vision is good shifting can be done on very small distance, even on black dot, is very quick and illusion of swaying is achieved. Yawning, groaning - 3D images, I personally enjoyed and practiced most of this. I think it was good gymnastic or eye-robics for my eyes after all these years of wearing glasses. I could practice all other above mention after a few months of 3D images viewing. There are many picture books for searching after details in many, like SPOT WHAT, WHERE IS WALLY - For reading, you know they say after 45 everyone will need reading glasses but it Is not true. To practice reading you just need to stretch the eye muscles, which you can do if you just simply follow the lines between rows. You can turn the page upside down to avoid trying to read, and just go in the white line between the rows, left right and back. Do it for half a mins or so, then turn back to read the text, you might see the improvement. - Reading small print is good exercise, smaller possible. Like this: Reading small print is good exercise, smaller
possible. Like this

Stretching the eyes in all direction and zooming Computers and video games also shouldnt be a problem, if the seeing is not under strain and even can help with lots of movements around the screen Edging, following along lines of everything in your sight, close and in distance Left and Right Brain integration: move left hand and tight foot, then opposite, we have been recommended this by the midwifes for babies development. This is because seeing close is left brain function (detailed) and seeing distances is right brain function (spatial). Following the lazy 8 or infinity sign helps in this.

The references:


as I mention this is stared with Dr. Bates, who was optometrist, lived about 100 years ago, after discovering that the main reason for all the poor vision of any type is strain decided to change the practice and invented these exercises and good vision habits. He helped thousands of people. Unfortunately, his methods and recommendations and research didnt go thru into official optometry. He also wrote I book, and here are some links where his research can be found described: his book: http://www.central-fixation.com/library.php or for download: http://www.seeing.org/resources/downloads/index.html Janet Goodrich, Se was Bates follower, American psychologist, who actually practised her in Australia, had been focused on Childrens vision, her daughter I think is continuing the business janetgoodrichmethod.com/ and some other useful sites, includes also names of optometrists that became behavioural optometrists or natural vision teashers: www.vision-training.com/index.html www.naturalvisioncenter.com www.cleareyesight.info www.iblindness.org www.exerciseyoureyes.com/ Jacob Liberman




These is also one reference to the way of our attention that I liked very much, you might be also interested, and mentions techniques of vision improvement, but is mostly teaching about two main attention styles focused, linear, and spatial, bring more peripheral awareness of the world around us. And all oour stress today is due to our living in constant overfocused attention, and that moven to the other mode diffuse and immersed is solution to bring our energies back and live more fulfilling lives. http://www.openfocus.com/ here it is if you want to know more. 3D images www.magiceye.com www.colorstereo.com

And a few words about glasses. - when person starts using them the eye movement reduces, the eye is trying to move but the light and all work is being done by glasses so the movement is being opposed by refraction of the light thru glass and some pain in the eye is then experienced the head movement reduces some people, have balance problems and becomes worse as the eye is working less and less - in order to be able to see thru glass the eyes need to stay in deformed, stressed position, therefore it is really dangerous for someone just to put someone elses glasses - there are many aspects of vision and glasses are improving only one, linear detailing aspect reducing all others, possibly affecting brain functions, the way of thinking and attention giving.
