- It is based on keeping your eyes healthy and not application of a cure
- It can be practiced at home
- You can do it on your own
- It involves minimal amount of money
- Once perfect eyesight is achieved, you won’t be spending any more money on optical solutions
- It doesn’t have any side effects, unlike laser surgery
- Its effects will last for as long as you maintain your normal eyesight unlike the temporary results of laser surgery
- It removes the necessity of most types of eye surgeries
Why Haven't I Heard About This Before?
Surprisingly, training your eyesight for vision improvement isn’t something new. It has been used since the early 1900's.
It all started when Helmholtz published his paper about accommodation and lens focus in 1885. According to Helmholtz, when the eye needs to focus on something close by, the ciliary muscle surrounding the lens contracts, causing the lens to expand. An expanded lens can focus on nearby objects.
What is wrong with the picture that Helmholtz painted for us all those years ago? It assumes that when the eye focuses, only the ciliary muscle is involved in the process.
Let us look at something like walking. A combination of muscles work together to make it possible for us to walk. Not only are the muscles help you move, they are also maintaining your balance while you do.
All the activities are coordinated by the brain, which controls the various muscles by signaling them when to contract or relax and for how long.
Evidence-based medicine practiced by the optometrists and eye doctors requires the use of tested and scientifically proven procedures. Most such procedures, including the use of glasses and contact lenses, are for treating the symptoms. They don’t correct your myopia.
An industry, such as the optic industry, which came into being during the mid 1800s, will do all it can to keep from being shut down. Imagine what a cure that doesn’t involve glasses, lenses, or surgery, would mean for this multi-billion dollar industry!
There is constant improvement when it comes to the products sold by this dollar. For instance, when contacts were introduced in the 1950's, they weren’t anything like the ones we see today. The first soft contact lenses didn’t even make an appearance until 1971. It took the world to enter 1999 before LASIK Laser surgery for myopia could be approved.
It took a whole lot of money to be poured into advertising and promoting these products to an unsuspecting public. People who didn’t know any better read in magazines about the latest optical wonder. Why would people who have been earning big money off the backs of people’s myopic condition want things any other way?
Vision training recommends itself for various reasons:
If you were wondering why you hadn’t heard all this before, that is an easy guess. Attending one visual training workshop would have you throwing your glasses away!

Eye doctors generally believe that astigmatism is mostly inherited and perhaps partly environmentally caused. They also believe that it does not go away and will probably get worse over time. While the aim of the vision-training astigmatism exercise is to eliminate corneal astigmatism by releasing the tension, it is useful to understand the way astigmatism is corrected with glasses, contact lenses or surgery. First some historical background. Sir Isaac Newton, who himself appears to have been astigmatic, first considered this question of astigmatism in 1727. Seventy years later, in 1801, the renowned scientist Thomas Young investigated astigmatism in detail. Young is reported to have had 1.7 diopters astigmatism. It was Cambridge astronomer Airy (1827) who was the first to correct the astigmatism with a cylindrical lens. However, it was the invention of the keratometer by Helmholtz in 1856 and the treaties of Donders in 1864, “Astigmatism and Cylindrical Lenses,” that put astig
This is the second in the series of articles on light. In this article, we will be discussing about how our eyes perceive light, as well as, colour temperature. Previously, we discussed that there are three standards that are used to measure daylight. Of the three, the D55 standard is used for measuring light at noon. Units of Light Measurement Different units are used for measuring light. We will be discussing three of them here. A foot-candle is equal to the light from a candle placed one foot away. A 23-watt bulb produces light equal to that produced by 125 candles. Lumen actually measures the power of light that our eyes perceive. A 23-watt bulb will produce light equivalent to 1,600 lumen. The unit that you should be concerning yourself with is the Lux. It factors in the area that a light source will illuminate. That is why, most public places have their minimum lighting requirement specified in Lux. If all this talk of units has you confused, here is an easier w
Principles of Vision Training When it comes to vision training, not all optometrists seems to be on the same page about it. It is admittedly baffling and for many, it is an inference that could make them go out of business. Hundreds of near sighted patients including children are restoring their natural eyesight and omitting their dependence on glasses totally. Near sightedness or Myopia is an incredibly common medical problem that causes the patient difficulty in seeing objects at a distance. Data shows that the incidence of Myopia has increased in the past few decades. In the 1970s, only 25% of the population had Myopia. But now, about 42% myopics exist. Myopia is a leading vision problem Myopia can be genetically determined or environmentally determined. Heredity plays an essential role. If the parents have myopia, then the children are at a high risk of inheriting the condition as well. Additionally, children who spend long durations of time engaged in near s
