It works, it really does. Commit and follow through with your eye exercises, and you will see significant improvement within a month. I went from 20/70 to 20/30 in just 30 days.

I'm not positive of my rating on this book as the effects of it are not in yet. I'm doing the exercises & have other things to try (like using weaker reading glasses for longer periods) before I can say for sure.

I had high hopes for the book & while they weren't completely dashed, I wasn't terribly pleased to find out that it mostly dealt with long range vision & my problem is with my close range. Still, it gave me some support for a theory that I'd held myself - my optometrist gives

This book discusses the emotional basis for near or far sightedness. Energy and Auras are discussed. Inner vision and Eye vision are equated. Lack of eye movement due to wearing glasses/contacts are shown to cause a reduction in ability to feel and view wholely or fully.

Some really intriguing ideas about healing your vision. The author says that the body is remarkable in that it has the ability to heal itself in ALL areas - even vision. Makes sense to me.

I found the book tedious to read - I like summaries, and this book didn't summarize main points...

I'm going to do further research on this topic and try some of the exercises... if they work, I'll increase my rating.

This book is written by and eye doctor and has a very different perspective on vision than you will have ever heard. It was interesting and made me want to work on correcting my own vision. For someone like me who has worn glasses since the 4th grade with a large prescription, it is a great book for hope.

The concepts in here have worked well for me. In the words of my optometrist when giving me yet another weaker prescription, "whatever you're doing, keep doing it."

I feel so much gratitude toward Dr. Liberman. Reading and working with this this book helped my eyesight so much, I was able to pass my driving test to drive in Tennessee ( which I initially failed) . Cannot recommend it highly enough- if you are considering Lasik surgery to correct your eyesight, read this first !

This book may turn into a DNF, because I am losing interest in it. But I wanted to say a few words about what I have read so far at just about halfway through the book.

First, the perennial question: Does it work? Yeah, sort of, in a way, it can work. My main issue is that it might not work in a way that is practical for most people. My vision correction is not severe (I came out at 20/40 on the chart in the book before I had read anything); my vision problem is astigmatism, so I have difficulty

i just had an eye exam yesterday and my prescription was reduced from -3.15 & -2.75 to -2.50& -2.00 BUT, the thing is that i know i could have done so much better if the eye doctor next me would just stop stressing me and let me more than a second to respond, and let me breath instead of saying "you don't see right?" and laugh when i asked for the minimum prescription. That was frustrating, i haven't used my eye lenses or glasses for weeks, almost not at all, and i actually feel

Ever wonder why each time you go to the eyedoctor you need stronger glasses? This book proposes that vision problems are not merely physical eye deformities but psychological and spiritual imbalances that manifest in vision problems. By working through these issues with confidence, clarity, and relaxation, we can improve our own vision from the inside out. Doctors are taught one thing, but didn't you ever wonder if you didn't upgrade that prescription that next time you visit the doctor? Perhaps ...more

An interesting and practical book. This book provides many examples and exercises to help improve your natural vision. Just as the title implies, the book also focuses on your insight (maily consisting of different meditation approaches and views on life) which was a great help to fully grasp the understanding of the methods and benefits of the exercises. I wouldn't say this was am easy read, nor was it a quick read. If you decide to pick this book up consider taking the time to do the exercises ...more

I have only read half of this book so far and the main thesis seems to be that the cause of eye problems is related to the emotions. There are some physical activities in the book, but my reasoning at this point is to seek emotional release and then read a book by Bates for physical exercises for eyesight improvement.
Dec 01, 2016 Susan rated it did not like it
In the end, the Bates book is far better and this one just repeats a lot of it so I am not sure why you would read this as well. I guess it depends which is cheaper or at your local library. On its own I did not care for the Buddhist angle -- everything is slanted towards Buddhist this or that. I could do without that garbage.

I like the overall approach - it's about changing your perception.
