Hello, I have been educating myself on restoring my eyesight naturally since the end of 2003 (admittedly, & a bit regretfully, I’ve been actually doing it on & off since then). The good news is my eyesight is gradually being restored back to its natural state.
To anyone wanting to get lasik or other eye surgery to restore your vision, please read on. You have other options. Once you have the surgery it cannot be undone.
Can you remember the time your eyesight started degrading from clear vision to blurry vision? (of course, this doesn’t apply to people who were born this way) If you’re like me, it was a time of mental stress & anguish. For me, I was getting used to moving to a new country and I also had an overcontrolling & obsessed mother; those two factors caused me a great deal of mental stress & anguish. I found solace in working in front of a computer (with a cheap-o monitor that strained my eyes) and by reading books.
The great secret is that the blurred vision can be reversed back to clear vision. In a nutshell, it’s done by reversing the mental stress & anguish, and the poor habits that formed out of them. It sounds controversial but it really is not. It’s a great secret cause you don’t see it as heavily advertised as Lasik or eyeglasses or contacts. And you know what? It’s not that easy to do either. It takes years. It’s not as quick as walking into the doctor’s office and walking out with surgically modified eyes.
The process to reverse your blurred vision back to clear natural vision has been documented in at least 2 excellent texts: “Better Eyesight Without Glasses” by Dr. William Bates and “Relearning to See” by Thomas Quackenbush. These are the 2 main tools that I’m using to restore my eyesight back to normal. Admitedly, I thought Mr. Quackenbush had a funny last name, but when I read his book I have nothing but respect for this man. Without him I would have no alternatives but glasses, contacts, or god forbid, surgery.
Here is my opinion (my opinion only) on Lasik & other “restorative” eye surgery methods: having the surgery is just like wearing glasses, except the glasses are no longer worn as eyeglasses or contacts – they are now a permanent part of your eye. The way these surgeries work is they alter the shape of your eyeball (by slicing or burning away surface tissue) so that your eyeball’s shape matches the prescription you had with your glasses or contacts. In absolutely no way is your eyesight restored “back to normal,” or “back to the way it was.” You are still wearing glasses! You would have 20/20 vision after the surgery (if you are lucky), only because the prescription has become part of your eyeball. Get educated on this as much as possible. Ask your doctors straight questions and don’t be satisfied with quick & superficial answers (keep in mind that they profit handsomely when they do the surgery). Once you do the surgery (and everybody’s doing it right?), once they carve your eyeball’s surface tissue, you can no longer have your natural clear eyesight back. You will permanently be wearing glasses – the glasses now being a part of your eye surface.
Is my eyesight really getting back to normal? Do I have proof? Yes. At this point I’ve only experienced flashes of clear sight. I am convinced that eventually it would become my dominant mode of eyesight. I have only learned about the “centralization” principle a few days ago (again, I regret that I haven’t done it sooner since I got “Relearning to See” almost 2 years ago) and shortly afterwards I got a flash of clear vision.
Everytime I get a flash of clear vision it scares the $*#% out of me. I am not used to seeing that way. It overwhelms me. I even think “it’s not gonna last long.” However, I’m becoming more confident that my eyes would eventually regain their automatic focusing ability. Heck, if I put my glasses on, the vision does gets clear, but what’s really doing the seeing? My eyes! My eyes are perfectly good, it’s just the focusing part that’s not working; and I am convinced I will eventually regain it.
So to folks who want to regain their vision back, and are considering Lasik or other “corrective” eye surgery, PLEASE at least consider these 2 texts.
Your clear, natural eyesight is your birthright – without the use of glasses/”corrective” lenses, and without the use of “corrective” surgery.
