- Pros and Cons
First; I want to state 'I am against the use of
pinhole glasses'. I have completed my own experiments, surveys on
their effects; they definitely disrupt the function of the eyes,
entire visual system. Instant headaches, eye pain, dizziness, multiple
images, disorientation are some effects of pinhole glasses. I keep
this webpage and Amazon products due to people asking for pinholes.
Some have used them with benefit, especially if they are trying to
free of a very strong eyeglass prescription. Other
people state they
experience side effects and more vision impairment. The experiment
results are posted at the
end of this article.

'temporary tool' to be used only
when necessary, example; for a few

The goal is to
obtain complete freedom from eyeglasses and pinholes. In some
ways they are better than eyeglasses, contact lenses, and are
definitely better than eye cornea… surgery.
They can (in safe
NOT when driving, using power
crossing the street, jogging, sports…) be used
briefly in place of eyeglasses. This helps to stop addiction to stronger and stronger
eyeglass prescriptions, prevent advanced vision, eye problems that are
caused by strong eyeglasses. Pinholes prevent
some of the strain, tension in the eyes, eye muscles, retina, lens,
eyeglasses cause. But, they cause some of the same
types of strain, tension eyeglasses cause
and create other
types of strain, tension, vision problems.
They block, disrupt
many normal, natural eye-vision-visual system functions. So, they are not to be used forever.
They are a step toward freedom from eyeglasses.
Wearing pinhole glasses enables the eyes, eye muscles, entire
visual system to relax a bit more than when wearing eyeglasses.

Most people can
obtain clear eyesight without use of pinholes.
I do not advise using them all day on the computer, ect... because

Pinholes cannot be used at night, in
Eyeglasses contain, maintain an abnormal refraction,
prescription for myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism... It is constant, locked in. This
forces the person to develop and maintain the abnormal refraction,
level of unclear vision the eyeglass lens is created for. Strain,
tension occurs and it must be maintained to see though the
prescription glasses. Strain, tension, blur is increased by the
prescription. Relaxation and a normal refraction, fluctuation-‘rhythm’ in the eyes are
prevented. These abnormal conditions prevent vision improvement.
Natural Eyesight Improvement causes the eyes refraction-clarity of
vision to change often as it works its way to complete perfect
clarity. Flashes of clarity occur more and more and last longer,
become permanent. Eyeglasses prevent this natural fluctuation, flashes
of clarity and eyesight improvement.
Pinhole glasses do not act as eyeglass
prescriptions; they do not contain a myopia, presbyopia,
astigmatism... prescription, so; the eye does
not have to create an abnormal refraction, tension, strain and reverse
its vision improvement to see through the pinholes. In this way
pinholes are better than

must use their own natural eyes-vision without pinholes, without
eyeglasses to gain perfect clear eyesight.
All you really need is to stop use of eyeglasses and to learn the Bates
Method of Natural Eyesight Improvement.
The more eyeglasses, pinholes are avoided, the faster and easier the
vision improves. When the vision improves with use of
Natural Eyesight Improvement,
then pinhole glasses, eyeglasses are permanently discontinued.

avoid; read this page and the website chapters, free e-books.)

want to get an idea of how pinholes work; place a piece of paper on a
table over a piece of cardboard and push a toothpick though the
paper to make a few holes. (See picture on top right of
this page.) Put the toothpick away. Look
though the holes in the paper. Notice the vision is clearer.
(If your eyes need vision improvement.) Objects may seem smaller; that's the effect of light rays and
areas of the retina being blocked by the pinholes.
bottom of this page for construction of the best pinhole device.
Pinhole Glasses reduce a lot of the light rays entering the eyes.
This reduces some of the blurry vision produced by unfocused light
rays in eyes that need vision improvement. Unfocused light rays
scatter on the central and peripheral areas of the retina. The
central ray focuses incorrect onto the peripheral field of the
retina. The peripheral rays scatter unfocused, incorrect on the
peripheral and central area of the retina, including the macula, fovea
centralis. Pinholes act as the eyes pupil does in sunlight; in
sunlight the pupil becomes smaller. This reduces light rays in the
eye. This is why day vision is clearer than night vision when the
eyes need vision improvement. Pinholes do this all the time, in
all levels of light and in an unnatural way. This is unhealthy, confuses,
brain, eye muscles, iris/pupil muscles, impairs their function...
The iris/pupil muscle is interconnected with the ciliary body,
ciliary-lens muscle. Tear gland and other muscles, nerves can be
affected, affect each other when tense, not functioning
correct. Modern science has proved Dr. Bates correct;
the eye does change shape, lengthen
to produce accommodation.
The ciliary muscle works with, affects
the outer eye muscles and the eyes shape during accommodation, un-accommodation.
All eye functions work together, affect each other. Squinting, an
Incorrect Vision Habit that causes eye, eye muscle
tension and unclear vision is a form of an unnatural pinhole
effect. Pinhole glasses act like many contracted pupils. This is abnormal.
All Pinhole glasses block healthy
sunlight. I prefer pinhole
glasses that have the regular old fashioned larger holes,
allow more light to pass through to
the eyes. This is better than the smaller and tiny hole pinhole glasses.
produce a clearer image when the eyesight is very unclear;
advanced myopia, presbyopia. The smaller holes hide the appearance of
some of the problems, unnatural effects that pinhole glasses
cause, but they are still occurring.
glasses with very small holes, appearing like plain sunglasses are
most harmful, act as sunglasses and block out more healthy natural sunlight causing an addiction to
sunglasses effect, lowed tolerance to light, impaired eye health. The smaller the holes, the more they
block the eyes natural function, so choose pinhole glasses with
larger size holes. Even pinholes with larger holes cause these
problems but a bit less than the small hole version.
All pinhole glasses are unnatural, act like dark, tinted lenses,
sunglasses; they block healthy full spectrum sunlight and lower
the clarity of vision, health and function of the eyes.
need natural full spectrum sunlight. In the daytime,
bright light, it is normal for the eyes pupil to constrict 'become
smaller' to control-lessen the amount of light entering the eyes.
The pinhole glasses act as
sunglasses 'darkness' and make the eyes pupil larger in the light;
daylight, indoor light. At the same time the pinholes in the glasses
act as many small 'contracted' pupils. 2 opposing unnatural functions
are occurring. This
causes strain, confusion, is
the visual system, function of the brain with the eyes, pupil-iris, lens, retina,
its cones, rods, production of visual purple. Dark glasses, including
colored, tinted, UV blocking glasses cause watering eyes, sensitivity
to light, impair light tolerance and lower the eyes health and
clarity of vision. At
night, in low light, it is normal for the eyes pupil to enlarge to
allow more light to enter the eyes. The holes in the pinhole
glasses oppose this function by acting as small constricted pupils
while the pinhole glasses act as sunglasses and further enlarge the
Opposing and unnatural functions are occurring causing strain, tension,
confusion in the brain, eyes, eye muscles, retina, iris-pupil, lens...
This can also affect convergence, divergence, accommodation,
un-accommodation. All functions of the eyes, visual system work
together. The eyes' pupil naturally changes size to assist focus of
light rays in varying amounts of light, darkness and when looking at
close and far distances and when reading up close. Pinhole glasses
interfere with this.
that have cataracts, other eye-vision problems might see better through
pinholes, but this is temporary and prevents Natural Vision
Improvement, a return to normal clear vision, healthy eyes.
The eyes, lens, retina need sunlight to remain healthy.
The eyes' lens needs full movement, circulation, hydration, complete
accommodation, un-accommodation to remain healthy.
Convergence, divergence (looking close and far) works with, is
affected by accommodation, un-accommodation.
Accommodation, un-accommodation and convergence, divergence is
party blocked by pinhole glasses. This can prevent cataract
Eyeglasses cause cataract and cause many of the same problems that pinhole
glasses cause. Pinholes are healthier than
eyeglasses but I must emphasize; they do
cause similar and other problems that eyeglasses cause.

are illegal, 'not safe' for driving, flying, bike riding, work,
play, cooking-working with knifes, machinery, walking, crossing the
street… Many activities cannot be performed safely when wearing
pinholes. Pinhole glasses block out a large part of the peripheral
field of vision. Normally, without the pinholes, objects and moving
objects are sensed by the peripheral field. Peripheral vision is
necessary for safety when driving
and most all activities. All pinhole glasses block parts of,
restrict, impair function of the entire visual field, central
and peripheral vision. Part of the retina and visual field,
‘central and peripheral' are blocked by the dark solid area of the
pinhole glasses and the frames around the lenses. This interferes
with completely normal eye, retina, brain, brain hemisphere, vision function.
Pinhole glasses do not help the eyes function correct, do not
improve function of the eye muscles and brain with the eyes, eye
muscles, retina. Pinholes block normal eye, brain, visual system

these work together. Disrupting one affects function of all.
The fovea centralis, macula, the eyes retina's 'central
(to be exact;
the center of the fovea, its pit)
must avoid the black areas of the
glasses and move to, look through only the pinholes. Each time the
eyes move or converge, diverge for different distances; the solid
black areas will ‘on and off’ block one or both eyes pupils ‘foveas’.
This makes it difficult for the central light ray to focus
perfectly on the center of the fovea centralis. Focus of other
rays on the inner and outer central and peripheral areas of the
retina are also blocked.
This blocks complete, free flowing, perfect eye movement,
scanning, tracking, searching,
normal perfect central-fixation, perfect
clarity of central vision and maximum peripheral vision.
Pinhole glasses impair the eyes shifting movement,
coordinated visual axis ‘central light ray’ focus from the left
and right eyes. This is due to the black areas around the pinholes
on and off blocking the eyes central field. Areas of the
peripheral are also blocked. Shifting and central-fixation occur
together. Pinholes disrupt this main natural eye-vision function.
The optic axis is also affected.
Pinhole glasses disrupt your visual axis;
central-fixation of both eyes’ foveas, (the
foveal pit ‘foveola’) working,
moving together precisely to
focus the central light ray from the point of an object you are
looking at perfectly into each eyes fovea pit;
the solid areas of the pinholes
cause the central field of the left and right eyes to not always focus
together on the same point. This blocks binocular vision, fusion. Try this; when wearing the
pinholes; move the head, eyes across the visual field until you
see a part of an object in the distance clear or semi-clear
through a pinhole. If you close one eye at a time when looking
through the pinhole glasses you will notice often that one eyes
central field, 'fovea' is blocked by the mesh of the black areas
of the glasses surrounding the holes. Areas of the macula are also blocked. One eye
sees the part of the object less clear or very unclear or the part
is completely blocked. This
causes diffusion, eccentric-fixation; the opposite of the healthy
function of central-fixation ‘centralizing’. Equal, perfect convergence, divergence, accommodation,
and shifting movement of the left and right eyes is impaired.
Unbalanced vision occurs. Often the
black areas block both eyes foveas-macula causing the part
of the object to be seen blurry by both eyes. Areas throughout the
entire peripheral field are also blocked. Attraction,
attention of the
mind, eyes to other objects in the visual field is reduced. The person is tempted to move
only the head or move only the eyes or move the eyes and head away from the
object while using the peripheral area of the retina, peripheral
field to see the object with. This
is also eccentric-fixation, diffusion and a main cause of advanced
myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, cataract, macular degeneration.
Even using the side of the fovea, or macula is still considered
using the peripheral. The true central field, perfect
central-fixation is to use the pit of the fovea; it’s exact
center and without pinhole glasses. Using the fovea occurs
naturally, automatically without effort.
pinholes prevent the eye muscles (inner; ciliary-lens, iris-pupil.
Outer; recti, oblique...) from functioning normally. Because
objects seen through pinholes appear smaller, incorrect size and are
somewhat clearer; the eyes-brain feel that they do not need to adjust
for different distances.
Convergence-accommodation, divergence-un-accommodation do not occur
fully, naturally. This impairs
memory, imagination, depth, distance... perception, function of
the brain with the eyes, eye muscles, retina and lens. The result
strain, impaired vision. All eyeglasses including pinholes
disrupt normal eye-vision functions, blinking, can cause
headaches. Tear gland muscle and tear production messages to-from
the cornea, brain, gland are also disrupted.
Pinholes disrupt the function of the eyes, eye muscles, retina,
brain ‘entire visual system’. In some ways pinhole glasses are
like eyeglasses; you have to ‘adjust to them’ by developing incorrect, unnatural use of the
vision, eyes. This leads to unclear vision and blocks use of Natural
state their pinhole glasses have the pinholes lined up perfectly
with the eyes pupils. This is a false statement because;
glasses are set for one size (one PD; pupil distance; the
placement 'centering' of the left and right sections of the
glasses in front of the left and right eyes pupils.) So, the glasses are never a
perfect fit for each individual person's PD. Everyone has a different
measurement ‘space’ between the eyes and size-shape of the nose,
head. So; the macula, fovea is often blocked on and off in one or
both eyes by the solid areas of the pinhole glasses. Also; if the
pinhole glasses barely move, tilt or the eyes move 'shift',
converge... ; the position
of the holes and solid areas change. Even if the PD were set correct,
the pinholes will not always be in front of the eyes pupils. Immobility ‘not shifting
not moving the head with the eyes is a main cause of defective
sight. Sellers state that pinholes cause the eyes to shift; yes,
but in a very unnatural, straining way that impairs the eyes
natural true shifting. Shifting to
avoid the solid areas of the pinhole glasses is not normal eye
Avoid teachers that try to convince
you that the solid black areas of the pinholes stimulate the retina’s
photoreceptors. They do not! They confuse and strain them, acting as a
constant flickering on and off of light-darkness effect, like placing
sunglasses on, off, on, off. Very harmful to the function of the
retina, its photoreceptors ‘cones, rods’ and the iris-pupil, ciliary
body-muscle, lens. The function of the iris-pupil, ciliary muscle-lens
and entire eye; eyes shape, oblique and recti eye muscles ALL work
together and effect eachother.
glasses disrupt the eyes natural movement, convergence,
divergence, and eye-lens accommodation, un-accommodation movement,
all eye, visual system functions; they are definitely NOT for people
with; strabismus (crossed, wandering eyes), any amount of
convergence, divergence dysfunction (even if it is very slight),
amblyopia, astigmatism, cataract, macular degeneration, even
slightly advanced presbyopia and other eye-vision conditions.
I like the pinhole glasses with holes also placed in the
center of the glasses
as shown in the picture on the top right; this helps
keep more of the central field visible. (Except where the black areas are.
All areas of the visual field, central and peripheral are still
partially blocked by the pinhole glasses.)

Now you know the entire truth. Some people might benefit from use

prefer students to go completely natural; no pinholes, no
eyeglasses. If your vision is in advanced stages of high myopia,
farsight, presbyopia; any type of stress, strain can lead to more
problems. Stronger and stronger eyeglasses lead to advanced
presbyopia, astigmatism, cataracts,
detached retina, macula degeneration, glaucoma and other
conditions. But pinholes also cause tension, strain. If they are
used in place of glasses to avoid advanced problems; could the
also cause advanced problems or will they help the eyes-vision
heal in some
ways? No eyeglasses, pinholes is the best, healthiest decision.
But if you must use some type of glasses; the pinholes, used
sparingly will be
better than the strong eyeglasses. Read more on the bottom of this
Avoid exercises that come with some pinhole glasses. I am not
familiar with all of them. Sellers usually are not natural vision
teachers and they often teach things that are wrong, unnatural,
harmful or provide ineffective or partial training. Do not
wear pinhole glasses over, under eyeglasses. Do not wear by
looking out over the tops of glasses or the pinhole glasses. See
this webpage for correct posture when wearing any type glasses;
not wear pinholes with contact lenses, sunglasses.
Do not wear pinholes when practicing Natural Eyesight Improvement;
switching, memory, imagination… because the pinhole glasses alter, impair these
functions. Pinholes disrupt all Bates Method, natural eye-vision
functions, shifting, central-fixation, relaxation…

relaxed vision habits; shifting... when wearing the pinholes, and
them often so you may practice the Bates Method completely
Some pinhole glasses on Amazon have smaller holes. As explained in
this article, the smaller holes are not healthy, they block more
natural eye-vision-brain functions. But; some people prefer the
smaller holes which will show clearer images through the pinhole
glasses at close and far distances when the eyesight is in
advanced stages of blur, myopia; -3 and up negative lenses,
presbyopia; +3 and up plus lenses. Some people state the smaller
and tiny hole pinholes cause additional annoying effects. People
state the spacing of the holes cause different effects. There are
All pinhole glasses,

my Amazon reviews for; Natural Eyes: Pin Hole Glasses, Black
Full Frame Kit and others;
In my reviews I
am against the
Vision Training by Natural Eyes pinhole glasses because the holes are
too small. But many people like this because if their vision is
very unclear, high amount of myopia, presbyopia, the small holes
produce clear vision when wearing the pinholes. As vision improves
with practice of the Bates Method-Natural Eyesight Improvement the
person changes to larger hole pinholes and obtains the same or
better clarity as the small holes. As vision becomes clearer, use
of pinhole glasses is discontinued. The vision continues to
improve to 20/20 and better, perfect clarity. (The

Pinhole Glasses Experiment and Survey Results;
Some Natural Vision Students and many Natural Vision Teachers tell
me that pinhole glasses are beneficial. Others
are strictly against them. I have completed experiments on myself
and surveys of other people that have used pinhole glasses.
Results myself, (I have normal 20/20 and
clearer vision without glasses, pinholes) and people in the survey
(with unclear vision) experienced;
Weird visual effects; indoor lights,
outside streetlights and other objects seen through the pinhole
glasses became multiple; triple, 4, 5… times the normal image.
Streaks and objects shaking, like an astigmatism effect. After
only 10-30 seconds use; dizziness; trouble orienting when walking,
moving, the head feels very uncomfortable, then a sudden strong
headache in the forehead, and the entire eyeballs inside and out
feel very soar, pain. (Almost like when a person with clear eyesight looks though strong
eyeglasses. Or when a person with blurry eyesight looks through
glasses that are too strong.) The eyes shape became big, kind of
bulging and a uneven shape with a very tense look after wearing
the pinholes. When I took the pinholes off; my vision was lowered.
Another effect; when you move, turn the head and eyes; objects in
the visual field shake and a screen like mesh of thousands of tiny
black dots appear, like static on a old TV screen or soot in the
air. This can prevent
natural movement of head and eyes; the person tends to lessen
head, eye movement to avoid these uncomfortable effects, but then
other effects occur when the eyes, head are still; areas of the visual
field are blurred, multiplied in other ways. Eye floaters can appear. It can
take about 30 min to an hour for the head, eye pain, blur to stop
after removing the pinholes.
Night vision is more impaired by the pinholes. Night vision use can result in more multiple images,
strange glare, streaks. The eyes pupil
becomes larger at night.
This has a strange effect as it tries to work with the pinholes.
In daytime the pupil is smaller so it might be blocking out
more of the strange effects of the pinholes but not much. And the
pinhole glasses act like sunglasses and enlarge the eyes pupil. Both day
and night vision is impaired by the pinholes.
happen to people with normal sight, and people in the survey with
myopia, presbyopia, one with astigmatism.
For my personal experiment; I have clear vision. So; looking
through the pinholes may have been like wearing eyeglasses; my
eyes cannot accept glasses of any strength, even the slightest
prescription will be blurry, cause head, eye pain and blur.
Pinholes do this to people that don’t need glasses and people that
have unclear vision. This proves
that pinholes are much like eyeglasses, are not healthy.
In another experiment using only a white paper (no pinhole
glasses) with just a few holes in it;

headache... but a little bit less.

A paper with one hole is best. To construct it;
use a white paper. Tear off the edges so there are no sharp ends,
corners. Be careful; do not touch the paper to the eye or a paper
cut could occur, injuring the eye, cornea. Seal over the edges if
you like with a smooth substance. On the top of the paper, 1 inch
down, push the end of a small paperclip through it to make a
medium size hole. One inch below that; use a needle and make a
tiny hole. Make clean holes so there are not fuzzy edges covering
the holes. See picture >
Look through the bigger hole with one
eye. If that does not bring clear sight, try the smaller hole. Do
not close the other eye. Just cover it with the hand or an
eyepatch. (Closing one eye causes tension in the face, eye
muscles.) Alternate using the left and right eyes so you don’t
overwork one eye.
Using one eye all the time
also causes forms of imbalance in the visual system, left-right
eyes. So; using the pinhole effect through a paper, even with this
best option of only one hole, one eye is also only for brief,
temporary use. Do not use forever. A white non-shiny paper seems
to work better than the black shiny plastic pinhole glasses. Maybe
the white paper reduces the reflection of lights, glare and
lessens the darkness effect caused by dark shiny pinhole glasses.
Placing a white paper with holes over the
black pinhole glasses did not remove the negative effects.
My teacher Thomas Quackenbush (a true
Natural Vision Teacher) does not sell or advise pinholes.
He warns against them;
Avoid Unnatural Vision Teachers That Alter Dr. Bates Method!
vision teachers that sell pinholes solely to earn money do not
warn about all the side effects. They also state; to use natural
vision habits; shifting, central-fixation…when wearing the
pinholes. BUT; the
pinholes interfere with, impair these natural functions! So what
do we do? Answer; try not to wear the pinholes. Go without glasses
and pinholes as much as possible, and, without them ‘with
no interference’; practice true, complete Natural Vision
believe the misinformation some vision teachers give “stating that
pinholes block all refracted bent light rays, all peripheral rays causing only central rays
to enter the pinholes and eyes”. That statement is incorrect. The
true central ray is NOT refracted, so the pinholes do not need to
block central refraction. They do block the peripheral rays refraction,
but not all. There is one exact central ray coming into the eye
through the center of the pupil and it focuses on the fovea's
exact central pit. All other rays are peripheral, even the ones
focusing close to the fovea's pit, next to the central ray. The central ray is the ray that
moves directly, exactly, point to point upon the part of the
object the eyes are looking at. Nice and easy, thinking of, seeing
one thing at a time. This is relaxation, perfect central-fixation
with shifting 'centralizing' for clear eyesight. (

axis, line of sight, pupillary axis, light rays, precise

function of pinhole glasses is; they cut down on some of the
unfocused light rays in eyes that need eyesight improvement. They
cut down on the peripheral rays in the peripheral field and the
peripheral rays that are very close to the exact central field;
near, in the macula and in the fovea, near the fovea pit. Peripheral
rays are refracted, bent. The central ray that focuses on the
exact fovea pit is not refracted. It travels straight into the eye
to the center of the fovea. This is the visual axis ray,
works with your line of sight, point of fixation. The exact
central ray. (See ophthalmology books for precise detailed
placements...) That main one central ray is important for very clear
vision, perfect central-fixation. Pinholes often block it as
described in this article. Correct placement of all rays in the
eye, central and peripheral produce perfect vision.
still some peripheral rays coming in through the pinholes onto the
peripheral areas of the retina and some are close to the central
ray 'as the fovea looks
through a pinhole', but they are truly
peripheral, not central. Rays coming in from all areas of the glasses where you are not looking
directly through are peripheral and will land on the peripheral
areas of the retina.
A peripheral ray can ‘become a central
ray' when you turn and look directly at that part of an object the
ray is coming from; when you face it directly, then the ray turns
into central and focuses on the fovea's pit. If
something in your peripheral field attracts the mind-eyes
attention; you turn the eyes-head and face-look directly at it,
placing it in the central field. The central field is clearest.
tell students to think of many central rays in all areas of the
visual field, 'many central rays
focusing on the retina, macula, fovea, and fovea's pit' are giving their students
training that results in diffusion, tension and unclear sight.
Diffusion=eccentric fixation, the opposite of central-fixation.
Diffusion=trying to see 2 or more points 'parts of a object'
equally, perfectly clear at the same moment. Avoid this. The true natural vision
function is; the fovea's pit moves continually as the eyes-mental
part to part
upon a object and from object to object. 'Shifting and
central-fixation; centralizing'. Prove it; look at a
part of a object and try to see all its pieces at the same time
equally clear without moving the eyes, not moving the fovea's pit
from piece to piece. Note a feeling of spacing out-pulling of the
eyes, brain in 2, 3, 4... different directions occurs. Tension,
strain and pain are felt in the eyes, head, body and the vision lowers.
Now, use the vision correct; look at one piece at a time, and
shift the eyes-visual attention 'fovea's pit' from one piece
‘small part’ to another, seeing each in turn clear; the part the fovea is
presently moving upon is clearest. This is easy, relaxing and
brings clear eyesight.
even the rays very close to the central ray,
to be almost central but truly peripheral
and refracted, very slightly refracted but still refracted. The
one tiny central ray in the center of all these rays is the true
central ray and is the ray that provides microscopic
central-fixation, very clear detailed vision, seeing tiny parts of
a object clear at any distance. Example; Look at two tiny fine or
microscopic print periods close together side by side.
.. When the
vision is clear, functioning normal, the one period the eyes are
presently looking directly at 'fixed upon' by the fovea-central
ray is seen darkest black and clearest. It’s ray is in the central
field, the fovea’s pit.
I have researched 7
ophthalmology, optometry books. Pictures of the eye show the
central ray as one straight ray, not refracted and it focuses on
the center of the
fovea. One picture in a teacher's book shows one central ray but
says there are central rays
on the fovea. Pictures are often simplified, not showing exact
functions. There are many rays focusing on the macula, fovea in
the human eye and all could be considered central, but the ray in
the center of all these rays is the exact central ray, the one
used for detailed fixation by the center of the fovea. The ray
that is coming from the tiny part of the object the eye's center
of the fovea is looking at. The fovea-eyes continually move upon
the object, moving over parts keeping the entire object perfectly
clear. Note; the part the fovea is presently moving upon, even if
only for a fraction of a second is always most clear; much
clearer than 20/20.
I find it best,
easiest for producing clear vision to consider all rays focusing
in the fovea that are not in the exact
Experiment; How small is the exact central ray? Prove that there
are peripheral rays close to the central ray;
Look at two tiny dots side by side;
(you can start with larger dots and spaced further apart, then
proceed to tiny fine and then microscopic print dots and placed
closer together.) Look at the dot on the left side <. If the
vision is clear, functioning normal, then the dot the eyes (center of the
fovea) is looking directly at, 'left dot' is darkest black and
clearest. It is the object fixated, in the central field. The
exact central light ray coming from that dot (to be even more
exact; the tiny part of the dot your looking at. Central-fixation
can go even smaller!) focuses on the center of the fovea.
not fixed is in the peripheral field and is seen less clear.
Peripheral rays are coming from that dot and focusing near the
center of the fovea, close to the central ray but not on the exact
same area as the central ray.
The other dot on the right side > the dot your not looking
directly at the dot on the right >. Now that dot is in the central
field, is seen dark black and clearest. The exact central ray is
now coming from that dot and focuses onto the center of the fovea.
The < left dot is now in the peripheral field, emitting peripheral
rays and is less clear. scopic

This experiment can
be done on close and far objects. See how small you can go; shift

the fovea moving upon that part.
How small is the central ray? Doctor Bates says to not place
limits on your vision; “The fact is that the nearer the point
of maximum vision approaches a mathematical point, which has no
area, the better the sight.”

central-fixation chapter for more examples;
Central-fixation is the true Bates Method; look at one part of a
object at a time. (Let the peripheral take care of itself.) Think
of one central ray landing on that fovea pit in the back center of
the retina producing your exact central field; where the eyes
fovea pit is moving upon, on the part of the object of
visual-mental attention. This is relaxing, easy and produces clear
sight. The eye, fovea moves continually. The fovea pit enables you
to see fine tiny details of close and far objects very clear.
Use no effort to do this.
Don't try to be perfect. The eyes do all of this automatically.
Forget about your eyes. Just look at what you want, enjoy
the scenery. Relax. Practice, then don't practice; let the
eyes-vision do shifting, central-fixation

do this with no glasses, no pinholes; you are free, the vision
