Better Eyesight: The Complete Magazine of William H. Bates Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Artists, teachers, army officers, housewives, elderly people, parents, and children with vision problems write about their experiences with the Bates Method and giving up their glasses in Better Eyesight. Major eye conditions (myopia, astigmaticsm, farsightedness, presbyopia, amblyopia, strabismus, cataract, gluacome, blindness) are discussed by Bates, other opthalmologists, the medical community, and readers. The significance of this literature is both historical and immediate. For the first time, the connection between eyestrain to shoulder and neck pain, headaches, and other muscular tension is discussed.

Synopsis:

Between 1919 and 1930, Dr. William Bates wrote about his breakthroughs in vision improvement in his magazine Better Eyesight. This book reprints all 132 issues of this influential journal, which offered nonmedical solutions to such problems as near- and farsightedness, astigmatism, crossed eyes, and lazy eye. It includes appendices on how to become a Natural Eyesight Improvement Teacher, a biography of Bates, and excerpts from his nurse/wife's book Stories from the Clinic.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 651-654) and index.

About the Author

Thomas R. Quackenbush is a West Coast vision educator who, in Relearning to See, gave readers the most thorough and technical description of the Bates Method of natural vision improvement currently in existence. He showed how relearning correct vision habits and skills ("sketch, breathe, and blink") could loosen the rigidity of head, eye, and neck muscles that results in blur.
