November 2016 Newsletter

Hello, and a wonderful November to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above shows the "after" of my one and only makeup lesson, when I told the woman several times "Don't make me look all made up!". This was a stretch for me, almost a dare to myself, since I normally don't wear makeup. Have you stretched yourself lately?

Today's issue has an overview of natural vision improvement. Enjoy!

What is natural vision improvement?
 clear blue eyes A central principle of improving vision naturally, not with the artificial means of surgery like lasik, or with prescription lenses, is relaxation. The founder of this work, Dr. Bates, said over 100 years ago that all eyesight troubles come from straining to see (or to not see!). Strain is the opposite of relaxation. And how can we relax our eyes if we aren't fully aware we're tense?

Many people start a course of vision improvement and focus on the simple exercises like palming or the Long Swing. This is a great place to begin, but the purpose of these practices is not to get better at the exercises! It's to help you be more aware of your eyes and how you're using them, and to learn to let go of some visual strain. Again, relaxation is key.

More than once I've heard the complaint from folks experimenting with vision improvement that the practices make their eyes feel worse! Unfortunately this incorrect perception can stop people from continuing. There are 2 possibilities here. First, maybe you're so used to approaching everything with strain, that you're doing the vision practice in a straining way too. See if you can be more gentle with it. Easy does it!

The second common mistake made when starting vision improvement can be doing an exercise correctly, and for the first time ever becoming aware of how much tension exists in your visual system. The exercises didn't put the strain there -- they uncovered it for you so you could recognize it and start to do something about it. This is a good thing, not a problem.

Many "vision exercises" are more like games than a workout. One of the best things you can do for your eyes is look at different objects of varying colors and depths and especially distance. If you're used to spending long stretches at the computer without a break, pause occasionally to look out the window, or get up to walk across the room. Give your eyes some variety, so your brain stays interested in continuining to look, and to seeing clearly.

Some of you may prefer auditory learning to reading. A recent interview of me explaining vision improvement has a few minor audio problems, and still has plenty of good information. To listen, click here.
