Some of my students, cured of blindness
and other eye conditions are now writing their own books and teaching. I do allow some pictures, text from my books to be
used but only with permission in writing by e-mail or paper. Better Eyesight magazine, Dr. Bates books, the original text

same treatments, descriptions of methods that are in my book; example; the Nosefeather and teaching people to shift part
to part on a object to see it clear, central-fixation... These words are needed to teach correct, easy. When I was searching
for a teacher to certify me, some of them stated I must sign a paper saying I will not use any words, methods they teach

My students will always be free to use the methods, descriptions... I teach.
Warning; A chiropractor in California has been making videos, slide-shows using my book pages, pictures without permission. He teaches Natural Eyesight Improvement and
that's great, he needs more training, study
in the subject but mainly teaches it very well, but; he is also using this to advise, sell chiropractic neck... treatments.
I do not endorse this! He has read my book, he knows I have a chapter stating how chiropractors injured my neck, caused vertigo,
many health problems for 2 years and I still have balance problems to this day and will not have any more chiropractic treatments!
Read the warning in my book (free on Google books), about the risks, stroke, vision, hearing... impairment that chiropractic
caused. See the chapter on 'the Path of Light Rays in the Eyes, brain...' Most chiropractors hide this truth. I do not
allow anyone, doctors, chiropractors... to use my books, pictures... to sell their medical treatments. No, you may not give
my book free or sell it as a way to convince people to have chiropractic and other dangerous medical treatments. My lawyer,

Remember to always check with your Eye Doctor and Medical Doctor for a complete Eye and Health Exam before practicing Natural
Eyesight Improvement. Tell them you plan to apply Natural Eyesight Improvement and that it will normalize eye pressure. Glaucoma
and other medicines may need to be monitored, lowered... by the doctor as the vision, eyes return to normal health, condition.
Do not apply Physical Therapy and other exercises, anti-gravity... if you have a detached retina, stroke, other eye, medical
conditions. Do not practice if you have had cornea or any eye operation. Check with a Eye Doctor first. Bates Method Behavioral
Ophthalmologist is best.
In no way, form is this website, books, training a substitute for an Eye Doctor, Medical Doctor’s

the Disclaimer on the beginning pages of the books and the Directions; Contact lenses cannot be worn before, during, after
practicing Natural Eyesight Improvement. Contacts will not fit the eye, cornea as it changes to normal, healthy shape and
function with practice of The Bates Method.
Natural Eyesight Improvement normalizes the eyes pressure, improves eye health.
If the reader has any eye condition, Glaucoma... check with your Eye Doctor first before practicing The Bates Method, Natural
Eyesight Improvement. Eye drops, drugs, medicine, un-natural treatments for eye pressure may need to be changed, reduced,
Natural Eyesight Improvement also changes the shape of the eye, cornea back to normal,
healthy condition. If eye, retina, cornea... surgery has been done on the eyes; check with your Eye Doctor first to be sure
the surgery and Natural Eyesight Improvement do not conflict, interfere with eachother, with the eye shape the doctor has
fit the surgery to. Natural Eyesight Improvement may help the surgery, eye to heal or it may work against the surgery because;
Natural Eyesight Improvement brings the eye, cornea to normal shape - but, the surgery may have been done to place, keep the
eye in a abnormal shape, the shape it was in before the surgery or a new abnormal shape. Example; Retina surgery done on a
eye that is abnormally lengthened due to advanced Nearsight, many years wearing eyeglasses, may act differently if the patient
practices Natural Eyesight Improvement and returns the eye to normal, round shape, normal eye pressure, normal fluid, circulation
flow... Same warning for eye cornea laser and other surgeries and cataract surgery; Avoid eye doctors that place a eyeglass
lens inside the eye during cataract surgery. This forces the eye, vision to remain impaired and if Natural
Eyesight Improvement is practiced or the eye naturally, on its own tries to return to normal function; the eyeglass lens in
the eye will not fit, work for the improved eye condition and unclear vision will occur. Same effect if the eye, vision becomes
more impaired (which the implanted eyeglass lens will cause); the eyeglass lens will have to be removed by another eye operation.
People have regained clear vision after unsuccessful eye and eye muscle surgery, but always check with a eye doctor, preferably
a Bates Method, Natural Eyesight Improvement Ophthalmologist, Teacher. If the eyes lens during cataract surgery is not
altered, replaced with a eyeglass lens prescription near-sight, far-sight, astigmatism, bifocal.., then Natural Eyesight
Improvement may be effective.

eye conditions; to lower or raise the pressure; ask your eye doctor’s advice first before applying Natural Eyesight
Improvement. The drugs strength, amount to take, may need to be changed or the drug may need to be discontinued. The doctor
must monitor the eyes pressure as the person practices Natural Eyesight Improvement. Natural Eyesight Improvement also

speak to your eye doctor first before applying Natural Eyesight Improvement to be sure it does not interfere with the surgery.

WARNINGS & DIRECTIONS
(Some sentences in this section are repeated in previous paragraphs. I will combine
all when I have the time.)
Natural Eyesight Improvement normalizes the eyes pressure, improves eye health, returns
the eye and cornea to normal shape. When the eye changes shape, focus of light rays in the eye changes. When the eye is in
normal shape, light rays focus correct, vision is clear.
Avoid wearing contact lenses. Contact lenses cannot be worn before, during, after practicing
Natural Eyesight Improvement. The contacts will not fit the eye, cornea as it changes to normal, healthy shape and function
with practice of The Bates Method, Natural Eyesight Improvement. Contact lenses can scrape, injure, infect and scar the eyes
cornea, eyes, impairing the vision, eyes health. The eye and cornea can and do change shape often, on their own, with or without
practice of Natural Eyesight Improvement. Contact lenses are never a perfect fit to the eye.
Eyeglasses; As Natural Eyesight Improvement is practiced, your present eyeglass lens prescription will not fit the eyes improved
state of vision; the glasses will become too strong and eyesight through the lenses will be unclear. Eyesight can improve
quickly. If glasses are needed, a weaker 20/40 clarity reduced prescription (legal for driving, work…) should be purchased
before starting Natural Eyesight Improvement. The first eyeglass prescription and future prescriptions should not be 20/20
or stronger clarity because these strong eyeglasses prevent eyesight improvement. This is explained in the beginning
of the book.
have any eye condition; glaucoma, cataract, cornea surgery.., check with your Eye Doctor first before practicing Natural Eyesight
Improvement. Eye drops, drugs, medicine, medical treatments for eye pressure, other conditions… may need to be changed,
Your eye doctor may or may not allow you to practice Natural Eyesight Improvement if there is
a eye condition because;
Natural Eyesight Improvement changes the shape of the eye, cornea back
to normal, healthy condition. If eye, retina, cornea, cataract... surgery or other treatment has been done to the eyes; check
with the Eye Doctor first to be sure the surgery, treatments and Natural Eyesight Improvement do not conflict, interfere with
eachother; with the eye shape, state the doctor has fit the surgery to, with the eye doctor’s treatments.
Natural Eyesight Improvement may help the surgery, help the eye to heal or it may work against the surgery because; Natural
Eyesight Improvement brings the eye, cornea to normal shape with correct focus of light rays on the retina-but, the surgery,
treatment may have been done to place, keep the eye or part of the eye in an abnormal shape, state, along with the abnormal
shape, state it was in before the surgery or a new abnormal shape, state or a normal shape, state but with specific conditions.
Example; Retina surgery for detached retina or other retina condition done on a eye that has an injury or is abnormally lengthened
due to advanced near-sight, or is shortened due to advanced far-sight, many years wearing eyeglasses may act, result differently
if the patient practices Natural Eyesight Improvement and returns the eye to normal round shape for distant vision and normal
slightly lengthened shape for close vision, all eye parts to normal state, normal eye pressure, fluid, circulation flow, correct
focus of light rays… The surgery and Natural Eyesight Improvement may conflict, work against eachother resulting in
eye, vision impairment.
If surgery was done for a eye injury or other condition when
the eye, cornea, parts were in normal shape and done to keep the eye, cornea, parts in normal shape, then; the doctor may
or may not allow Natural Eyesight Improvement to be practiced to help heal, benefit the surgery, eye.
Same warnings, results for eye cornea laser surgery and other
cornea, eye surgeries, including cataract lens surgery. The eye or part of the eyes shape, state set by the surgery, (surgery
alters the cornea, sometimes lens, other parts of the eye, often changes the eye to an unnatural shape and/or state) will
not fit the eyes shape, state if it improves naturally or becomes more impaired after the surgery. Eyesight will become unclear.
If the eyes cornea was treated with laser or other cornea surgery, Natural Eyesight Improvement
may help prevent the vision from becoming more impaired but if the eye shape improves too much, beyond the state the surgery
was set to, the vision may blur because the improved eye shape will not fit the prescription the surgery etched into the cornea.
A balance has to figured out and this is tricky; perfect relaxation, perfect eye shape and the eye won’t fit the surgery,
but more tension, impairment of the eyes shape and the eye won’t fit the surgery. Any pulling on the surgically altered
cornea as it tries to adjust to a new eye shape can tear or cause waves… in the cornea because it has been weakened
and made unnatural by surgery. I don’t know if the cornea can re-grow (like the human skin, liver, parts of the eye…)
back to the state, full normal shape it was in before the cornea surgery. If this can happen, then the cornea will become
strong again and Natural Eyesight Improvement may help. See the warning in the book chapter on cornea eye surgery.
A bit more
explanation on this;
Cataract surgery results are best when the eye doctor keeps the original natural lens in
the eye and removes only the cataract (if possible) or; if the entire lens must be removed; results are best if the doctor
creates the artificial replacement lens exactly as the eyes natural lens, with the exact normal focus, refraction of light
rays that the eyes natural lens produces. This natural type lens is set for a normal eye with normal vision and this will
prevent more vision impairment and allow for vision to improve, become clear. This way the person is not trapped with a eyeglass
prescription inside the eye for a state of unclear vision, abnormal eye.
effects for Laser and other cornea eye surgery; avoid it! The surgeries result in a permanent eyeglass prescription for
an abnormal eye shape, function, state of unclear vision being placed into the cornea. If the eye, vision tries to improve
its function or becomes more impaired; the vision will be unclear due to the prescription placed in the cornea being incorrect
for the new eye condition.
Do not do inversion, upside down exercises, trampoline, spinning… as shown in the physical
therapy chapter if there is an eye injury, condition, treatment, surgery; detached retina, retina, cataract, cornea eye surgery,
any surgery, medical treatment and some conditions such as injured arteries, veins, capillaries in the eyes, neck, head, brain,
eye doctors that place an eyeglass lens prescription ‘inside the eye’ in the cataract replacement lens when replacing,
altering the eyes lens during cataract surgery. The patient is then trapped with a permanent eyeglass prescription inside
the eye. The implanted artificial eyeglass lens forces the eyes, vision to remain impaired, maintains, increases the strain,
tension in the eyes, eye muscles, brain, causes more vision impairment, damages the eyes health, impairs natural light
entering the eyes, prevents Natural Eyesight Improvement.
If Natural Eyesight Improvement is
practiced or if the eye ‘naturally, on its own’ tries to return to normal function; the eyes shape, focus of light
rays will improve, but now the new correct eye shape, normal focus of light rays will not fit the implanted eyeglass lens;
the artificial eyeglass lens in the eye will not be the correct prescription, it will be too strong, cannot work with the
improved eye shape, new improved focus of light rays. Unclear vision will occur. (Laser cornea surgery has the same effect;
it places, etches a prescription into the cornea.
If the eye muscles become more tense, eye
shape more abnormal, light rays more impaired, mental, visual system strain increases (due to the strain the eyeglass lens
inside the eyes WILL CAUSE); the vision will become unclear because the eyeglass lens prescription will not fit the
increased impaired eye shape, increased abnormal focus of light rays. The prescription will be too weak. The eye doctor will
then sell a new eye operation to change the eyeglass lens prescription inside the eye to a stronger prescription. This will
further impair the vision, eyes health. If the cornea was altered; the surgery, prescription placed in the cornea cannot
be changed, removed.
In either case; if the eyes shape improves or becomes more impaired,
a new operation to change the lens prescription in the eye will be performed. Bifocal, astigmatism prescription in the lens
increases the vision impairment. All lenses including unequal prescription strength in the left and right eyes cause
extreme imbalance in the eyes, eye muscles, visual system, brain, visual cortex, left and right brain hemispheres. All brain
functions; memory, imagination, mood, sleep, hormone, chemical production, regulation, nerve signals… are impaired.
When the function of the eye, retina, brain is impaired the eyes function of pulling light into the eye, using light and transmitting
the light energy to the brain, body is impaired. Eye movement, central fixation and other eye functions are also impaired.
The artificial lens implanted in the eye, with or without an
eyeglass prescription in it impairs natural sunlight entering the eyes, causes unbalanced, partial spectrum, unhealthy light
to travel into the eyes, brain, body, impairing health of all. An eyeglass prescription or tinted, uv blocking in the lens
increases the imbalance of the light. Read the chapter on natural full spectrum, balanced sunlight; it is necessary for good
health, clear eyesight.
is best if the eye doctor does not place an eyeglass prescription in the cataract replacement lens so future operations can
be avoided. If the eyes lens during cataract surgery is not altered, not replaced with an eyeglass lens prescription; near-sight,
far-sight, astigmatism, bifocal, tinted.., or if the original natural eyeglass lens is not removed, then Natural Eyesight
Improvement may be effective, the eyes, vision will have a chance to improve, maintain clear eyesight and help to prevent
development of future cataracts, unclear vision. Ask your eye doctor to NOT place any type of eyeglass lens prescription in
the cataract replacement lens. Also state that you prefer NOT to have laser surgery performed to create a prescription in
the eyes lens or cornea.
When possible, it’s best to remove the cataract from the
eyes natural lens and keep that original natural eye lens in the eye, no artificial implant. Even better; practice the Bates
Method, a healthy diet and avoid wearing eyeglasses to avoid developing unclear vision, cataract. If you have cataract; find
a Bates Method Ophthalmologist and use the Bates Method to reverse, cure the cataract naturally without surgery.
People have obtained and maintained clear vision after cataract surgery (without a prescription
placed in the lens, eye), unsuccessful eye muscle and other eye surgeries but always check with an eye doctor, preferably
a Bates Method, Natural Eyesight Improvement Ophthalmologist first.
William H. Bates books assembled by Clark Night & Clark Night’s books, Clearsight Publishing Co. do not contain,
advise any un-natural harmful treatments such as;
Plus lens eyeglass method, eye stretching exercises, artificial 3-D fusion repetitive eye exercises
(see chapter in book), use of contact lenses, orthokeratology and other methods using contact lenses to force the shape of
the eyes cornea to change, bifocals, multi-section, mono-vision lenses, sunglasses, colored, tinted lenses, 20/20 and stronger
eyeglasses, laser and other eye cornea surgery, cataract lens surgery containing a eyeglass prescription replacement lens
embedded in the eyes and other un-natural methods. These un-natural methods destroy the eyes health and clarity of vision,
lead to a variety of eye problems including blindness. They are completely against, opposite of the Bates Method of Natural
Eyesight Improvement discovered and taught by Ophthalmologist William H. Bates. No eyeglasses is the best, fastest,
safe way to perfect eye health and clear eyesight at all distances close and far.
Plus and Minus Eyeglass Lenses
Avoid the Plus Lens
(Anti- Corrective) Eyeglass Method and Other Un-natural Treatments;
Avoid Behavioral Optometrists,
teachers, book authors that use the Plus Lens and other un-natural methods. The Plus Lens Method is advertised to change the eyes shape
and reverse Myopia. It is a very harmful method that causes cataract, other eye problems, interferes with natural healing,
Natural Eyesight Improvement, the eyes and eye muscles normal function. It impairs the eyes health and vision; Plus Lens treatment
is not Dr. Bates Method. There are businesses, Authors re-creating Dr. Bates books and adding harmful treatments. Plus Lens
businesses, book authors are selling, advising this dangerous method to pilots, children, seniors, all people. Avoid it!
People advertising Plus lens and other harmful methods delete comments on their forums, YouTube… posted by people that
state the method has impaired their vision. Many of the authors still wear eyeglasses, are addicted to Plus Lenses and have
had eye surgeries after using the method.
I have found through research from the present time
to back in the early 1900's that people end up using the plus method for years and are still wearing eyeglasses.
Plus lenses (prescribed for close vision) are in some ways opposite
the effect of the minus lens (prescribed for distant vision). Persons selling plus lenses state the plus lenses might help
a person with very high myopia, extreme unclear vision reverse the addiction, effect of the strong minus lens but; plus
lenses also cause extreme vision impairment. Its risky, dangerous, a deceptive crutch that gives a false sense of security,
safety. Fooling around with the way the eye muscles work by wearing plus lenses, causes; tension, confusion, dysfunction,
imbalance in the eye muscles, brain, left and right brain hemispheres, extreme strain, tension in the eyes, entire visual
system, causes presbyopia, farsight, myopia, cataract, glaucoma, detached retina, astigmatism, strabismus, other eye
problems, impairs tear production, pupil function, eye pressure, fluid flow and interferes with natural healing. This risk
is increased if the person has advanced myopia, presbyopia, strong eyeglasses which always lowers the eyes health. The eye
muscles, eyes, visual system is already tense, impaired from wearing eyeglasses. The plus lens method increases this condition,
impairment and can result in the eye problems listed in this article.
Wearing any type of eyeglass lens causes tense eye muscles. Tense eye muscles
press, pull on the eye, press, pull on, stretch the retina, lens, causing cataract, detached retina, impaired circulation
in the eye, broken capillaries, crushed cells… in the eye, lens, retina.
Lens Method forces a person’s eyes that have unclear distant vision and clear or unclear close vision to look through
a blurry incorrect close vision reading eyeglass prescription. This prevents and impairs normal accommodation, convergence,
un-accommodation, divergence. It results in unclear close vision and addiction to the plus lenses. Stronger and stronger glasses
are prescribed as the vision is further impaired. Close and distant vision become unclear. The plus lens method is dangerous;
done by causing a different type of eye muscle tension that results in overall eye muscle tension, dysfunction, abnormal eye
shape and other eye problems. Astigmatism often occurs because the eye muscles become out of balance, uncoordinated, in a
constant state of tension. (Bifocals and astigmatism lenses maintain and increase all of these problems.)
The 'Plus Lens Method’ (close vision, reading glasses) is
harmful and using the minus, negative lens (distant vision lenses) is harmful. Replacing the minus lens (which is usually
prescribed for unclear distant vision) with another type of harmful eyeglass lens (plus lens-reading glasses) is as destructive
as the minus eyeglass lens. Plus lenses and minus lenses impair close and distant vision. All eyeglasses cause eye muscle
tension, impair health of the eyes, vision.
Plus lens reading eyeglasses are close vision magnifying glasses. Close vision eyeglass lenses are a main
cause of cataract. Many senior citizens, younger people, age 40, all ages that have worn reading glasses for a few years or
shorter time develop cataracts, retina health impairment, other eye damage. The eyeglasses quickly impair the eyes health
and increase blurred vision at the reading, close distance and eventually far distances.
Different types of eyeglass lenses; Minus, Plus, Astigmatism,
Bifocal... cause more impairment, dysfunction, tension in specific eye muscles but always cause dysfunction, tension in all
the eye muscles.
eyeglasses; Plus Lens-close vision, reading glasses, Minus Lens for distant vision, Astigmatism lens, Bifocals, Multi-Section
and Mono-Vision lenses, Colored, Tinted lenses, Sunglasses, Contact lenses, Prisms… and other un-natural eyesight treatments
impair eye health and the clarity of vision. They cause and progressively increase tension, imbalance, dysfunction in
the outer and inner eye muscles, (oblique ciliary, lens, iris…) impair normal accommodation, convergence for close
vision and un-accommodation, divergence for distant vision. The eye muscle tension squeezes the eye into an abnormal lengthened,
shortened and/or irregular shape and places pressure, tension, stretching, pulling on/in the eye, retina, lens, cornea, iris/pupil,
capillaries, fluid, tear vessels, channels, nerves.., causes abnormal eye pressure impairing health of the eyes, clarity of
vision. Detached retina and vitreous, glaucoma, cataract, astigmatism, myopia, near-sight, far-sight, presbyopia and many
other eye health, vision problems develop. Blood, fluid circulation in the eyes, lens, retina.., eye health and the vision
impair fast when eyeglasses are used. Eyeglasses strain, impair and prevent relaxation of the mind, body, eyes, impairs function
of the brain, visual cortex, left and right brain hemispheres and their control of, function with the eyes, eye muscles, retina,
lens, iris, in-coordinates the eye muscles, eyes, impairs eye muscle function, eye movement, causes left and right brain hemisphere
imbalance, impaired memory, imagination, concentration.., causes headache, neck, shoulder tension. All these conditions further
impair the vision and can result in crossed, wandering eyes, low, no vision in one or both eyes. Stronger and stronger eyeglasses
are prescribed, then bifocals, leading to cataract.., other eye problems, eye surgeries. The ‘Plus Lens Method’
and other un-natural treatments increase all of these eye problems.
Avoid Natural Eyesight Improvement
Teachers that allow students that have unclear close and distant vision to wear their close vision plus eyeglasses for distant
vision and their distant vision minus eyeglasses for close vision to save money as their eyesight improves with practice of
Natural Eyesight Improvement. This will strain and cause imbalance in the visual system, eye muscles, eyes and their function,
communication with the brain, left and right hemispheres.
Eyeglasses block all natural, normal eye functions.
Dr. Bates says NO GLASSES is the best, healthiest way to go. When
a person contacts me with advanced eye problems; extreme blur, retina condition, cataract, glaucoma, astigmatism...; I tell
them they must "Immediately Stop Use of Eyeglasses!" Continuing the eyeglasses, even using weaker reduced 20/40
lenses can advance the eye problem, prevent a cure. Within 1-2 months after stopping eyeglasses they report improvement,
even for people that don’t use Natural Eyesight Improvement, just discontinuing eyeglasses allows the eyes to function
natural, correct 'on their own' and return to good health. Cataracts, Astigmatism, Blindness, Retina holes... have been reversed
Clear Eyesight Can be Obtained in a Safe Way Without Eyeglasses;
Avoid eyeglasses, use the Bates Method, read fine, microscopic print in the sunlight
at close distances the way Ophthalmologist Bates describes to keep the eyes healthy, avoid development of cataracts, glaucoma
and other eye problems.
Read fine print in the sunlight without eyeglasses; it changes the eyes
shape, focus of light rays to normal for clear close and distant vision in a healthy, safe way. It perfects relaxation, coordination,
function of the outer and inner eye muscles. Fine print changes the eyes shape to normal, cures myopia, farsight/presbyopia
in this way; Dr. Bates states; When looking close, reading; the outer eye muscles change the eyes shape to round, slightly
lengthened for perfect accommodation, focus of light rays on the retina, clear vision. Convergence is also perfect. (Other
eye doctors state the lens also changes shape.) This action will help an abnormally, progressively lengthened eye shape that
causes myopia, unclear distant vision to change to the normal, healthy round shape it needs to be in for correct focus of
light rays on the retina, clear distant vision. Divergence also is perfect. When looking to the distance from the close
fine print, in a state of relaxation (which the fine print induces when read correct with shifting, central fixation) the
eye tends to change from slightly lengthened for reading up close to perfect round for distance. The lens also functions correct.
Go out into the sunlight without eyeglasses, sunglasses and use the eyes relaxed, correct;
practice 'shifting', natural eye movement, central-fixation and switching on objects at close, middle and far distances.
Practice relaxation of the mind, body, eyes-deep and dynamic relaxation, palming, abdominal relaxed deep breathing, improve
the memory, imagination. Eat right, good nutrition. All these healthy practices will relax and return all the eye muscles;
outer and inner; oblique, recti, ciliary, iris, tear gland... to normal function with correct eye shape and clear vision at
all distances. Healthy eyes without dangerous side effects. This is the natural, safe alternative to using minus or plus eyeglasses,
True Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement brings clear vision and healthy eyes without use of eyeglasses. Bates Method
students can use a series of weaker and weaker, reduced 20/40 eyeglass lenses, only if needed for driving, safety at work...
until the vision reaches a safe level of clarity to permanently stop use of eyeglasses. Example; a person with unclear distant
vision wearing a strong minus lens can wear weaker and weaker 20/40 reduced strength clarity minus eyeglass lenses as they
practice Natural Eyesight Improvement and the vision improves, reverses back to clear through levels of clarity; this allows
the eye muscles, visual system some relaxation and ability to reverse back to perfect clarity, complete relaxation. Eyeglasses
are permanently discontinued. (As stated previously; if the vision is progressively impaired, danger of imperfect eye health;
it is best to stop use of all eyeglasses, strong and weaker, to prevent sudden onset of cataract, detached retina, other eye
problems. Stop work, driving and other actions requiring clear vision, safety while you take time out to improve your vision
without glasses. It’s a hard decision, but consider the alternative of staying with glasses and risking eye impairment.
Pilots and others required to have 20/20 vision cannot wear reduced 20/40 lenses when flying…
but they can wear them with practice of the Bates Method to achieve 20/20 without glasses, then pass the eye exam, legal to
When possible NO GLASSES is best way to go, fastest way to improve the vision. Stay
safe and healthy; Avoid eyeglasses. Let the eyes go natural, complete relaxation and see clearer than 20/20 with The Bates
Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement. It's the original Natural Vision Course used successfully by the Military, Air Force
Pilots in World War Two and present time.
The Bates method alone is enough and is safe, natural. Dr Bates books and his 132 Issues of ‘Better
Eyesight Magazine’ containing the cures for myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism... is all a person needs to gain clear eyesight
and healthy eyes. They are free on the internet and in the E-books.
Most people only need to
stop wearing glasses and to learn basic shifting, central-fixation, natural eye movement and relaxation. When eyeglasses are
removed, the eyes, eye muscles, brain return to normal function, apply Natural Eyesight Improvement automatically, on their
own reversing, returning the eyesight to perfect clarity. Eyeglasses prevent this natural correction.
People, doctors selling unnatural eye treatments try to discredit
Dr. Bates, hide his work. Most all Optometry, Ophthalmology books, articles, colleges, eye doctors will not state this truth
because they are in the business of selling eyeglasses, eye surgery and drugs. Only Dr. Bates and a few honest old and modern
natural ophthalmologists, optometrists have stated the truth about the harm that all eyeglasses cause and will teach their
patients the Bates Method.

shape and learn more about the un-natural methods, eyeglasses to avoid and how to achieve freedom from eyeglasses.

conditions are caused by mal-nutrition, poor posture and physical, emotional, mental stress and strain. Eyeglasses maintain
this, prevent a cure on all levels. People have re-gained clear vision by remembering and releasing painful memories, experiences,
trauma from their childhood and other times. Natural Vision Improvement and stopping use of eyeglasses can uncover, release
the negative emotions, stress. Do not worry about facing this. Encounter it and release the pain. Replace it with positive
thoughts, emotions, ways of thinking about the experience. If you are in a destructive environment, find a way to gain your
freedom, protect yourself from negative, abusive people. EFT, deep relaxation techniques to improve the mind by Gary Craig
and Robert Monroe are of great benefit.
http://www.monroeinstitute.org This is described in the book.
Family, friends, teachers
might try to discourage your practice. Not all, but some may try to work against your practice, discourage you. This can be
due to their being forced by the eye doctors to believe only the doctors advice, which is usually eyeglasses, surgery, drugs
or due to being afraid of a new method, not wanting to learn or being jealous of your being able to cure yourself; it is empowering
and they may fear losing control over you, the family, circle of friends and the old way of life. Don’t be discouraged.
You have millions of other successful Bates Method practitioners, students to communicate and grow with. Read the history
books and research the true history books that are hidden, not provided by schools, colleges. Many scientists, doctors are
shunned by society, their discoveries, theories, proven facts ignored, destroyed and hidden. Years later usually after her/his
death the scientist’s work is accepted and the world is benefited.
Discoveries for disease, cancer cures, better power sources, gasoline
free cars… have been hidden by business competitors. The inverter is paid to not publish, sell the invention, cure.
If he/she does not comply, this inventor disappears, mysteriously dies or is falsely imprisoned.
Dr. Bates and the doctors, people he trained to be Natural Eyesight
Improvement teachers had this problem. Eye surgeons, doctors, businesses selling eyeglasses tried to hide Dr. Bates work,
prevent him from teaching and threatened his trained teachers.
The Bates Method should be taught in schools, colleges for children and adults to prevent
eye problems, preserve knowledge of the method for future generations.

Author's Profile, Bates Method, Free books;
Mary I. Oliver preserves Dr. Bates Books; In 4th grade Elementary School
I had to wear eyeglasses to see the blackboard. My teacher also wore glasses. Children pick up eyestrain, incorrect use of
the eyes, tension and lowered vision from being around people that wear glasses, stressful experiences in school. I hated
the glasses and threw them out in a couple weeks. I sat closer to the blackboard and this prevented strain, effort to see
and the vision returned to clear. I could then see clear from the back of the class when necessary. My vision remained about
20/20-20/40 for years. In 10th grade high school I needed glasses again to read the blackboard. I threw them out after 2 days.
At this time I found Aldous Huxley’s book: ‘The Art of Seeing’ and practiced Switching and Shifting on objects
at close and far distances. I understood and practiced a little Central-Fixation. In a few seconds my vision improved and
in 2 days was perfect, clear. Practicing the Bates Method activates, integrates, improves all functions of the left and right
brain hemispheres, brain functions. My school grades and personality improved. In the U.S. Army I was forced to wear glasses:
distant eyesight 20/40 at times. (It’s normal for vision to fluctuate. Glasses prevent natural fluctuation back to clear
vision.) I refused to wear the glasses. One day while in a foxhole shooting my rifle at the distant target the Sergeant had
me wear the glasses. I could not hit the target after many shots while wearing the glasses. I got mad and took off the glasses
and threw them in the dirt, then aimed the rifle and hit the target easily for the remaining shots. Sargent then allowed me
to permanently discontinue use of the glasses. Did not need glasses for the rest of my life until age 40–unclear close
vision–extremely stressful job at a hotel. Returned close vision to clear using Huxley’s book, Bates Method, Cambridge
Institute For Better Vision book, practicing methods at close distances, and then took Thomas Quackenbush’s course in
San Francisco, CA. Also read fine print in the sunlight with relaxation, shifting, central fixation. Distant vision also improved
to better than 20/20. Recently in 2009 I had a neck injury and it affected my vision. Neck is healing and use of Natural Eyesight
Improvement, Bates Method has returned the vision to clear at age 55. I know from experience that the Bates Method works!

Natural Eyesight Improvement Methods. Dr. Bates said the method is
continually being improved upon. He did that himself though the years
as he learned from his patients, his experiments, applying his
method. I like the modern methods such as; the Nosefeather for
learning to shift, move, relax the eyes, apply central-fixation and
movement of the head/face with the eyes (central field), relaxation
of the neck, body and mind. The 'Infinity Swing (Figure Eight)',
Cross Crawl, Color Treatment, Left and Right Brain Hemisphere

Improvement but you must know the method, how to teach correct.
I have used this method since high school, age 17 to present age
56. It has kept my vision clear. It also improves function of the
mind, creativity... Been studying the method in more depth, writing
Natural Eyesight Improvement books since 1996. I have my books first
1996 Copyright at the Library of Congress. See the palming picture;
notice the hands fingers are not crossed on the forehead as they
should be for best results. I learned to palm with more benefit,
correct with the hands fingers overlapping on the forehead
(integrates brain hemispheres and activates a chi energy center)
after taking Thomas Quackenbush's course, reading his books and
studying Dr. Bates Books in 1996 in San Francisco, CA.
recommend my teacher Thomas Quackenbush's books. The books and his
student course brought my close and distant vision to much better
than 20/20! ; 20/10 and seeing the 10 line and smaller letters at 40
feet away. Crystal clear detailed vision. I can clearly recognize
people 5 blocks away near the highway at the bottom of Grand Avenue
in South San Francisco from the top of the hill. Close vision; tiny
print is clear at 4 inches, closer and farther away. Microscopic
vision! This improves circulation in the eye, eye muscle function,
keeps the eyes healthy into the senior years. I have taken 5 Natural
Eyesight Improvement courses; 2 in person by; Thomas Quackenbush and
Carrie Anderson M.S. and 3 home study courses and have studied all
the teachers, doctor's books on the subject since 1974. See my
certificates on the website. (Carrie Anderson improved her vision
from 20/800 to 20/20.)
My vision was temporarily impaired in
2009, in many ways by a neck injury; a dishonest chiropractor placed
the spine, hips and neck vertebrae out of alignment 'on purpose'. C1,
2, 4, 6 and many vertebrae around T1, shoulder level and others
placed twisted, crooked on the spine. I ended up in the hospital with
vertigo, other problems 3 times due to this injury. The chiropractor
then tried to sell me 240 treatments and more for life saying "you
will never be healed". I originally went to a chiropractor only for
soar back muscles from lifting at work and did not need neck
treatment and later found out all I needed on the back was a
professional massage. See the true story on my website. The injury
and vision was healed with physical therapy, movement exercises, two
treatments by a honest chiropractor (even though it was risky, can
cause stroke but I had to do it so the joints, muscles, nerves...
could heal in correct position). The Bates Method of Natural Eyesight
Improvement improved the vision to 20/20-20/30 before the new
doctors, then the vision improved back to better than 20/20 when the
injury was fixed and I continued Natural Eyesight Improvement. Now in
2012 I have the old 30/10 vision, 40/10 if I do extra practice and
eat right... It fluctuates sometimes to 20/20 for a short time after
hours on the computer, heavy lifting on the injury side of the body.
The Bates Method and just using the eyes correct brings the vision
back to perfect.
Dr. Bates states it is normal for the
clarity of vision to fluctuate, change. When eyeglasses are avoided
and diet... improved it returns to best, normal clarity. Keeping the
vision clearer than 20/20 can prevent fluctuations below 20/20.
Seeing 30/10 on the eyechart is easy; it's the small line on the
bottom of the chart at 30 feet, across a large room. 40... feet is
also easy. The Bates Method produces this clear far vision and
ability to read fine print clear up close, into old age. Shift,
blink, relax, breathe, central-fixation.
This method words!

Ophthalmologist Bates Life History, Discovery
of Natural Eyesight Improvement
William H. Bates, Ophthalmologist is the Author of Better Eyesight Magazine,
Medical Articles, The Cure Of Imperfect Sight By Treatment Without Glasses, Perfect Sight Without Glasses.
Clark Night (Mary I. Oliver) has converted
Dr. Bates Magazines, Books and other copyright free Original Natural Eyesight Improvement Doctor's/Teachers books into Kindle,
PDF, Video, Audio and Paperback. Clark Night is Author of 'Do It Yourself-Natural Eyesight Improvement-Original and Modern
Bates Method' and other Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement books, is a Bates Method Natural Eyesight Improvement Graduated
Student and Self-Trained Bates Teacher that has kept her eyesight 20/20 and clearer for 35 years using the Bates Method-Original
and Modern Natural Eyesight Improvement. (See pictures of old and new drivers licenses on this website; no glasses needed!)
The author teaches friends, family, the public how to obtain clear eyesight.
The secret for clear vision that most eye doctors hide;
What is shifting? It is Eye Movement; moving 'shifting' the visual attention
(Central Field) from part to part on a object to see it clear. Relax. Blink. This is the main thing that brings clear vision.
Replace squinting, trying to see with shifting.
Dr. Bates describes shifting in Better Eyesight Magazine; When you look
at a chair; avoid trying to see all parts clear at the exact same time. Look at one part at a time. Look at, see clearest
a part, then move to another part, then another... ; Look at a part of the chairs back, then move to a different part on the
back, then another part, then shift to a part on a leg, then shift to a arm, then the top, then side... When looking at a
part; continue to shift part to part on the part.
Practice this at close, middle, far distances for clear vision at all
distances. Practice as a healthy habit, normal, correct eye (visual system) function. Test, practice with the eyes, vision
in this way with; both eyes together, one eye at a time, both eyes together again. If vision is less clear in one eye at one
or more distances; practice a bit more with the less clear vision eye to get the vision equal, perfect in the left and right
eyes at all distances. Read, shift on fine print for clear close vision if needed.
This is basically the whole practice
of Natural Eyesight Improvement. Relaxation of the mind and eyes (eye muscles, body, neck follows); this is Dr. Bates main
treatment. When the mind relaxes, the vision is clear. Function of the mind/brain; memory, imagination and other functions
that work with the eyes also improve, increasing visual clarity.
Dr. William H. Bates, Ophthalmologist,
Central Fixation Publishing Co., New York City, New York, USA.
Dr Bates discovered and perfected Natural
Eyesight Improvement, The Bates Method'. He discovered the natural principles, true, normal function of the eyes (visual system)
and applied natural methods, relaxation to return the eyes, eye muscles, nerves, mind/brain, thought patterns, body (entire
visual system) to natural, normal function with healthy eyes and clear vision. The Bates Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement.
He cured; unclear close and distant vision, astigmatism, crossed, wandering eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye conditions.
Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement was practiced years before Dr. Bates discovered it. It is the normal, natural function
of the eyes. Hidden from the public by eye surgeons, Optometrists, optical businesses for over 100 years because this method
works, is easy, anyone can learn, teach it, including children. It produces healthy eyes, clear vision and frees the patient
from the need to purchase eyeglasses, drugs, unnecessary eye surgery. Yes, it can and has reversed cataracts!
worked his entire life treating people successfully with Natural Eyesight Improvement. When he cured the eyes, vision of many
patients, medical students and other doctors in the hospital where he worked with natural treatments, without use of eyeglasses,
surgery, drugs and proved his method is fact and that some of the old theories of eye function are incorrect, only theories;
the doctors, eye surgeons that preferred to sell eyeglasses, surgery, drugs became angry and expelled him. (See: `Reason and
Authority' and `Dr. Bates Lecture' in Better Eyesight Magazine: November, 1919, April, 1923 and Articles in his book.) Dr.
Bates then opened his own office, a Clinic in Harlem, New York City. He treated thousands of people by natural methods, including
many of the poor people that had little money. He kept his price for medical treatment low and also provided no charge office
visits `Free Clinic Days' for people that could not afford to pay for a visit to an Ophthalmologist. His treatments were successful.
He cured the young and old, people of all ages, nationalities, cured a variety of eye conditions.
The Bates Method is
so simple and effective that many of his cured patients, `often children' then went on to cure their friends, family, parents,
teachers and other children of defective vision including crossed, wandering eyes. Read the `true story of the two little
girls that restored a blind mans eyesight' in the Oct. 1925 Magazine Issue. Read Dr. Bates full story in `Better Eyesight
Magazine' and his book `The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment Without Glasses'.
Dr. Bates recorded 11 years of work
in his clinic, his patients and their varied treatments in his Better Eyesight Magazines, Books and Medical Articles. Dr.
Bates Better Eyesight Magazines contain many Natural Treatments, a variety of Activities, Directions, Articles describing
how Dr. Bates, Emily Lierman Bates, (his Clinic assistant, wife) and other eye Doctors, School Teachers, Bates Method Students,
Bates Teachers, Children and Parents used Natural Treatments to remove, correct, prevent many different eye problems: unclear
close and distant vision (nearsight, myopia, farsight, presbyopia ), astigmatism, cataracts, glaucoma, conical cornea, cornea
ulcers & scars, retinitis pigmentosa, wandering/crossed eyes (strabismus), amblyopia and other eye conditions. Done without
eyeglasses, surgery, drugs. Dr. Bates used surgery, drugs only when necessary, (Eye injury, infection...).
contain `True Life Stories' of the doctors, assistants, patients, treatments. Interesting, entertaining, fun to read. A History
book, life in the early 1900's. Vision improvement based `Fairy Stories' and other articles for children are included. The
stories produce a positive, relaxed state of mind, activate, improve the memory and imagination, teach Natural Eyesight Improvement,
normal, correct eye functions. This improves the eyesight.
Dr. Bates discovered Natural Eyesight Improvement over 100
years ago - Started around the year 1886. Dr. Bates Better Eyesight Magazines, books are the original source of The Bates
Method and true Natural Eyesight Improvement. The Original Better Eyesight Magazine collection is proof that Ophthalmologist
William H. Bates discovered the Bates Method, Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement and is the True Author of the Magazine.
The Optical, Medical Industry/Association and most Eye Doctors, Opticians have hidden Dr. Bates work, magazines, books,
articles, Natural Eyesight Improvement from the public for over 100 years because: The Bates Method improves the clarity of
vision, eye function, Dr. Bates writings are proof that Natural Eyesight Improvement works, produces clear vision, healthy
eyes, it describes, teaches people how to apply Natural Eyesight Improvement & obtain clear vision `on their own' and
prevents the need for purchasing eyeglasses, contact lenses, sunglasses, eye surgery and drugs. The Bates Method is safe,
healthy for the eyes, reverses and prevents vision impairment.
After Dr. Bates death, the Optical Industry, Medical Doctors/Association
destroyed Dr. Bates magazines, books, articles, removed them from libraries, schools, colleges, bookstores in an attempt to
hide the truth about Natural Eyesight Improvement from the public, prevent people from curing their eyesight.
dishonest politicians, judges to pass laws preventing the public from teaching Natural Eyesight Improvement. They passed a
law stating that only an eye doctor can teach the Bates Method. Most doctors refused to teach it. Ophthalmology, Optometry,
Optician Colleges hid it, refused to teach it and Eye Doctors were taught in College to ignore the Bates Method. Honest eye
doctors were afraid to teach it, were told that they would lose their medical license if they used it in their practice.
A few honest Eye Doctors, Bates Teachers, Students, Libraries from the 1900's - present have hidden, preserved and republished
Dr. Bates magazines, books and continued to teach the Bates Method despite harassment from the Optical, Medical Industry:
Emily Lierman/Bates, Dr. Harold Peppard, Cecil S. Price, Dr. William MacCracken, Bernarr MacFadden, Clara Hackett, Margaret
Corbett, Aldous Huxley, Janet Goodrich and others. (See the case of Margaret Corbett and Aldous Huxley, New York City, USA;
The Optical/Medical Industry/Association brought her to court, accused her of practicing Optometry without a license. She
won all cases brought against her and cured the eyesight of many people that were in the courtroom. Aldous Huxley (famous
Author) was a witness for Margaret Corbett , proved to the court how she reversed his near blindness, improved his eyesight.
He later wrote the book: `The Art of Seeing'.
The Optical, Medical and Drug Industry prefers to sell eyeglasses, contact
lenses, dangerous destructive cornea laser eye surgery, cataract lens surgery, other eye operations and drugs. They continue
to suppress, hide the Bates Method from their patients, the public.
Dishonest Eye Doctors prescribe stronger and stronger
eyeglass lenses, bifocals, unneeded astigmatism sections in the eyeglass lenses, tinted/UV blocking lenses & sunglasses
knowing that this causes and increases vision impairment, eye muscle tension, abnormal pressure, tension on/in the eye, retina,
lens.., dependence on stronger eyeglasses and leads to development of cataracts, detached retina, other eye health impairment
and thousands of dollars profit from performing cataract, retina, cornea... surgery. I suspect that some Opticians, Optometrists
that sell stronger and stronger eyeglasses receive money, `kickbacks' from eye surgeons when the business sends a patient
that has developed a cataract or other eye problem, `advanced and ready for surgery', to the eye surgeon for a operation.
Senior citizens are their main victim, `customer', abused by their doctors, told to wait for surgery until the cataract
grows large enough while the doctor sells stronger and stronger eyeglass lenses, bifocals, unnecessary astigmatism sections
in the glasses, sunglasses... knowing that this practice will cause more vision impairment, increase, speed the growth, development
of the cataract and prevent a natural reversal, cure of the cataract.
A sales pitch for laser eye cornea surgery is often
done after the patient's eyesight is greatly impaired from being prescribed addictive, stronger and stronger eyeglass lenses,
bifocals and astigmatism lenses.
When the patient feels helpless, scared, they are pressured into agreeing to eye cornea
Laser cornea eye surgeons destroy the health, structure of the eyes cornea knowing it will lead to a variety
of eye, vision impairments, sale of eyeglasses, more eye surgery. Many patients have experienced extreme, disabling vision
problems, eye pain and blindness has occurred. Patients have committed suicide, explaining to their family they would rather
die than live with the greatly impaired vision, pain and poor quality of life that the laser cornea eye surgery caused. See
the FDA 'Cornea Surgery Side Effects Warning'. The law states that eye doctors do not have to tell their patients all the
dangers, side effects of cornea eye surgeries. Laser surgery destroys the cornea's health, function and often results in more
eye surgeries to correct the damage done by the first laser surgery. Even though the TV news stations and newspapers receive
a lot of money for advertising Laser surgery they post reports on laser cornea eye surgery side effects.
An honest eye
doctor prefers to get the patient to stop use of eyeglasses, will not prescribe strong eyeglasses, bifocals, tinted, UV blocking
lenses, sunglasses, unnecessary astigmatism sections, laser cornea eye surgery. He/she teaches the patient how to reverse,
prevent unclear vision, astigmatism, cataracts and other abnormal eye conditions.
Due to the truth about Natural Medicine
being available to the modern public, interest in Natural Cures; Dr. Bates Better Eyesight Magazines, books, work has been
recovered from individual owners, re-published and brought back to the public. Many Ophthalmologists, Optometrists are now
learning, teaching the Bates Method and monitoring, recording their patients Natural Eyesight Improvement progress.
Dr. William H. Bates Life & The Bates Method History
Dr. Bates started his career as an orthodox ophthalmologist following the old, long
time rules of the practice; prescribing eyeglasses...
During his practice, working with different patients, eye conditions,
he realized that unclear close, distant vision, astigmatism and other conditions often cured itself, reversed back to clear
vision, especially when his patients stopped wearing their eyeglasses. He noticed that wearing glasses weakened the eyes,
resulted in stronger and stronger eyeglass lens prescriptions being needed in order to see clear through the glasses. He began
his own studies on the eye and its function. This led him to discover that many of the old ophthalmologist, optometry `supposed
facts' about the eye, lens and its function and cause of unclear vision... are incorrect. Dr. Bates began teaching his patients
to avoid eyeglasses, stop wearing their glasses.
He taught them natural methods, including relaxation, correct use of
the eyes, practice of normal, natural eye function to improve the vision. Dr. Bates cured his own eyesight, close vision,
presbyopia. Distant vision also clear. He wrote an Article in his book, magazines describing how he did it with Memory, Imagination,
Relaxation. He controlled, changed the focus of light rays in his eyes with his mind.
Dr. Bates performed experiments
on the eyes of animals, and observed the function of thousands of animal, patient's eyes under different conditions, situations,
state of mind, body, thoughts and emotions. He used the retinoscope to see the refraction, focus of light rays in the eye
under these various conditions. He proved that the refraction, clarity of vision changes often and when the eyes are left
alone, eyeglasses avoided, the refraction, clarity returns to normal, clear vision. He proved that the state of the mind,
thoughts change the refraction of the eye, clarity of vision. Example: when the mind, body is relaxed, positive, happy thoughts,
emotions: the refraction is normal and vision is clear. When the mind, body is under stress, strain: the refraction is abnormal
and vision is unclear. Dr. Bates discovered that the main cause of unclear vision and other eye problems is: Wearing Eyeglasses,
Mental Strain, Mental, Visual Effort to See, Incorrect Vision Habits (incorrect use of the eyes; squinting, staring, not shifting,
lack of central-fixation, low memory, imagination...). Perfect Sight occurs only with Perfect Relaxation (deep or active/dynamic
relaxation - See Aldous Huxley's book: The Art of Seeing). Relaxation occurs first and then the eyesight becomes clear.
His experiments on the outer eye muscles proved that tension in these muscles disrupts their function, the eyes movement,
accommodation, convergence, un-accommodation, divergence, causes pressure, tension on/in the eye, alters the eyes shape, (and
lens), disrupts focus of light rays on the retina and the clarity of vision. Circulation in the eyes is also affected.
Mental strain, stress, strain in the mind, negative thoughts, emotions cause eye muscle tension. Neck muscle tension causes
eye muscle tension and neck tension is caused by mental strain, negative thoughts, emotions, incorrect posture, injury: vertebrae
out of alignment). Inner eye muscle tension; ciliary/lens, iris, tear gland muscle... also occurs. When the mind is strained,
tense, the brain and retina do not communicate, function together at optimum level, function of the retina is lowered.
Dr. Bates proved that MENTAL STRAIN causes unclear vision. RELAXATION of the mind produces clear vision. Dr. Bates used
his retinoscope to show that the refraction/focus of light rays in the eye are disrupted resulting in unclear vision when
a person lies. Lying causes a bit of mental strain. When the person tells the truth-no strain occurs, the refraction is perfect
and vision clear. Many things can cause mental strain. Avoid eyeglasses, remove the stress, strain and vision returns to clear.
Practice of Natural Eyesight Improvement can uncover old, forgotten stressful experiences, resulting in strong emotions, feelings
being remembered, activated. Once the memory, feelings are acknowledged, released and new positive thoughts, emotions placed
into the brain, system: often the vision immediately returns to normal 20/20 and clearer. No other practice is needed. The
eyes relax, move, `shift'... correct on their own.
Dr. Bates published Medical Articles, Books describing his experiments
on the eyes, eye muscles, the effect of memory on the eyes, vision and the effect of the clarity of vision on the memory:
1891 `A Study of Images Reflected from the Cornea, Iris, Lens, and Sclera' & `Memory as an Aid to Vision'. These Articles
and others are placed in his 1920 book: The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment without Glasses, Better Eyesight Magazine
and his Medical Articles E-Book.
Dr. Bates created Natural Treatments, Activities to cure; reverse, correct and prevent
unclear vision and other eye conditions based on his discoveries. This became know as `The Bates Method'. Glaucoma, cataracts
and other eye conditions were also reversed successfully with Dr. Bates Natural Treatments.
Dr. Bates History - Dates

and published Article on properties of the aqueous extract of the suprarenal capsule, `Adrenalin'.
1886 - First Natural
Eyesight Improvement Application - Dr. Bates cures a medical student of unclear distant vision, `Myopia' without eyeglasses,
surgery, drugs. 1886 -1902 - Eye surgeon - Instructor of Ophthalmology - New York Postgraduate Medical School, Hospital.
Dr. Bates teaches the other doctors, medical students to stop wearing their eyeglasses and how to cure their eyesight, myopia
with Natural Methods. Dr. Bates natural treatments were successful. He states, proves the natural cure for Myopia, unclear
(1891 - Dr. Roosa, the chief director of the institution, expelled Dr. Bates in an attempt to hide Natural
Eyesight Improvement from the public and maintain the practice of solely prescribing eyeglasses, surgery and drugs.)
Bates then opens his own office, clinic and works for better hospitals.
Attending Physician, Surgeon, Clinic Assistant
- Manhattan Eye & Ear hospital, Bellevue hospital, New York Eye Infirmary-Northern, Northeastern, Northwestern dispensary
& Harlem Hospital.
Invented Astigmatic Keratotomy, an operation to correct astigmatism. He discontinued applying
this operation after he realized through further study of Natural Eyesight Improvement that the operation eventually impairs
the eyes function, cornea, vision, health. It works against the natural function of the eye.
Dr. Bates discontinued his
hospital schedules for a while and started experimental work, studied the eyes natural function at the laboratory at Columbia
University.., Research at the Pathology Laboratory of Dr. Pruden at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University.
Dr. Bates goes to Grand Forks, North Dakota, (Medical License) and teaches his Natural Eyesight Improvement Method, correct
natural use of Snellen Eyecharts in the schools, brings clear vision to the children and teachers. Elected president of the
Grand Forks district Medical Society.
Back to New York, worked as Attending Physician - Harlem Hospital in New York City.
Teaches his method, use of Snellen Eyecharts in the schools, brings clear vision to the children and teachers in New York
1911+ - Met Emily C. Lierman. Dr. Bates cured her eyesight, then hired her as his assistant clinic nurse -They
worked his experiments in the Physiological Laboratory at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York and treated patient's
eyesight with natural methods in the Harlem Hospital, Clinic. Many years giving free treatments to the Public. They Married
Dr Bates performs experiments on the eyes of Animals, Fish proving that the outer eye muscles when tense can
alter the shape of the eye, lens and cause unclear vision, cataracts and other conditions. He proves the outer eye muscles,
oblique can accommodate the eyes for clear close vision.
1918 - 1924 - Course, book `Strengthening the Eyes' by Bernarr
Macfadden & Dr. W. H. Bates - Physical Culture Publishing Co. In later book editions, Only MacFadden's name was listed
on the book.
1919 -1930 - Dr. Bates Published his Monthly `Better Eyesight Magazine' - Central-Fixation Publishing Co.
- 11 Years-132 Issues recording various Natural Treatments for many different eye conditions of the patients of Dr. Bates,
Emily and other doctor's... patients. A Gold Mine, History of Natural Eyesight Improvement Methods, Applications.
- Dr. Bates published his book: `The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment Without Glasses'. 2nd print renamed: `Perfect Sight
Medical Article - The American Journal of Clinical Medicine 'A Clinical and Experimental Study of Physiological
Optics with a view to the Cure of Imperfect Sight Without glasses'. Basic information on The Bates Method.
Articles proving the effectiveness of The Bates Method were published though the years.
Elected Vice President of Allied
Medical Associations of America.
Stopped work at Harlem Hospital, Clinic and starts Free Clinic treatments day at new
1926 - Emily C. A. Lierman (Bates) writes, publishes the book: `Stories From The Clinic' describing The Bates
Method, various natural treatments Dr. Bates and Emily applied to cure many different eye conditions for patients in their
1931, July 10th - Dr. Bates Deceased, age 70 at his home in New York City.
Emily Lierman/Bates, Dr. Harold
Peppard, Dr. William B. MacCracken, C.S. Price, Clara Hackett, Margaret Corbett, Aldous Huxley and others continue to teach
The Bates Method. Better Eyesight Magazine and Bates Books, Articles were Preserved. Bates Teachers work in Cities in the
U.S.A., England, Germany, Spanish Teachers, South Africa,..
1940 - Emily Lierman, Bates re-published Dr. Bates book with
an additional chapter teaching The Bates Method's Application: The Fundamental Principles of Treatment. (The list of treatments
is placed in this introduction and is derived from Better Eyesight Magazine, June, 1921 and other issues & Dr. Bates original
books). Sometime during her teaching profession she and others continued to bring the Bates Method to California and other
states, countries. Thousands of person's eyesight cured naturally. Emily and other teachers made a Movie on `How to Apply
The Bates Method'. It is hard to find.
1940 -1941+ - Natural Eyesight Improvement Teachers are sued by the Optical, Medical
Industry, Association in an attempt to stop them from teaching The Bates Method. (See Margaret Corbett, Aldous Huxley case
in this book.) Optical Industry, AMA, Eye Doctors destroy Dr. Bates Books, Magazines, Articles, remove them from Colleges,
1943 - Emily Lierman/Bates re-publishes Dr. Bates book with a new title `Better Eyesight Without
Glasses'. Many treatments in the book are removed causing The Bates Method to be mis-understood by students. Students confused
Natural Eyesight Improvement with Eye Exercises. (The Bates Method uses relaxation of the mind, body, eye muscles and eyes.
Exercise, hard effort is not applied.)
Emily wrote this new limited book out of fear of Law Suits, Abuse, Imprisonment
by the Medical People(Optical Industry, AMA...) that preferred to continue selling harmful Eyeglasses, Eye Surgery, Drugs
and hide Natural Eyesight Improvement from the public.
Emily and other Natural Eyesight Improvement Bates Teachers, a
few honest Eye Doctors secretly preserved Dr. Bates Original Books, Medical Articles, Better Eyesight Magazines in the U.S.A.
and other countries.

unclear if the eyes-vision
improves due to practice of Natural Eyesight Improvement,
but the eyes contain an artificial lens implant with an eyeglass
prescription for myopia, presbyopia, any unnatural prescription
placed in it due to cataract surgery; The implanted lens acts like
an incorrect, ‘too strong’ eyeglass prescription.
The eye won't be able
to see clearly through the artificial surgically created lens
prescription in the eye. Vision becomes unclear.
Even if the
artificial lens prescription is normal,

the eyes may not need eyeglasses
because; Dr. Bates states the eyeball can accommodate without the

to action of the outer oblique eye muscles. This will compensate
for the un-accommodated lens. #2 is not perfect and vision
may not be completely perfect at all distances as can be in #1.
Also; for #1 and #2 - By not placing an
artificial, unnatural prescription (myopia, presbyopia...) in the
