About the Book

This Book has come to be regarded as an all-time classic on eye-care. Based on Dr. W.H. Bates' personal experiences in correcting eye problems and improving eyesight, the book explains his theories which have received wide recognition and come to be called the Bates Method.

The Bates Method is a natural, non-invasive and commonsensical method of enhancing vision and retraining the eyes to see properly using simple techniques to relieve strain and improve brain/eye coordination.

Written in a simple and lucid style, the book is a definitive guide to the Bates Method. The stress is on natural methods such as palming and central fixation (tratak-an ancient Yoga technique), and home treatment, wherever practical. Bates Method has helped countless persons recover their natural eyesight proving that good eyesight without glasses is not a myth, but a very achievable reality.

The present volume is a thoroughly researched and updated edition of the classic work.

About the Author

William Horatio Bates (1860-1931) graduated from Cornell, and received his medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons. He established a practice in New York and also served as instructor in ophthalmology at the N.Y. Postgraduate Medical School and Hospital.

His researches led him to the discovery of an entirely new theory of the eye's method of functioning, and a new trend in the treatment of defective eyesight. While connected with the N.Y. Post Graduate Medical School and Hospital, Bates improved myopia in many people, including students and doctors, at the clinic.

The prestigious journal, Scientific American, in its issue of January 1918, wrote '...(here is) one eye specialist who has actually been (reversing) errors of refraction without glasses for 30 years, and... has been able to present evidence which appears to invalidate most theories on which the present practice of ophthalmology is based... (his findings) promise to revolutionize the practice of ophthalmology and are... of tremendous import to the country.'

The present volume is a thoroughly researched, revised and updated edition of Dr Bates' original book on the Bates Method. Cover Design : Vision Studio
