I was wondering if any of you have had any significant success with natural vision improvement, such as The Bates Method? I've had fairly bad
eyesight all my life, around -7.0 diopters currently, and I became interested in natural vision improvement several years ago, but due to how bad my
vision is, I could never go without using glasses for a long enough time to really give the method a chance to work. I can't even use the computer
without glasses or contacts.
When I was doing it, I did notice some pretty significant and amazing changes in my 3D perception by paying attention to oppositional movement and by
utilizing several other methods. That was quite profound, as it's one of those things you really don't realize you've lost until it suddenly
returns. I also managed to be able to kind of "squeeze" my extraocular muscles in a particular way that would make things sharper, but I don't
think this was actually a beneficial change or representative of the correct type of progress that one should actually expect.
Although I've heard of friends of friends who have gone from wearing coke bottle glasses to having normal vision through the Bates method, and
although there are many anecdotal examples in the various reference books, I've never encountered anyone directly who has claimed to have had tried
Has anyone had direct experience with this, and if so, how much did your eyes improve, and about how long did it take?
