I was shot in my right eye when I was young. Got a transplant (lens) at 18. Still crappy vision. Left eye is pretty good but not 20/20.

@TopsQueen Never heard of those. Do you know of any sources I could find out more from about what was done?

Fiat. That sounds like the experiments the germans did on the Jews in WWII. One of them was really into eyes.

Used to have 20/10 until college. Then lost a little to 20/15 w an astigmatism :(
Have glasses to stave off the astigmatism headaches when reading or watching tv or on the computer

this conversation, though you are welcome to read the whole thing! ;) And remember that it is his "radical crazy thinking" that's up against "traditional knowledge on the subject assumed to be fact" and that is why he was/is viewed as a practitioner of quackery by most.

difference between their eyes and ours, but for his purposes it was close enough to illustrate his point. The nitty gritty details can be found for free online at under library, it's called "Perfect Sight Without Glasses" by Dr William Bates and you'll want chapters 2-6 for…

So, if you release the strain, you will return the eyeball to its more normal shape. One of Dr. Bates experiments involved electrically stimulating (and medicinally paralyzing) certain muscles regarding the eyes of fish and rabbits (his equivalent of lab rats) Now, I believe there to be a…

socket by (I think 8) different muscles on the outside of the eyeball, and one or more of those squeezes like your leg example, and continues to squeeze, it would be understandable that it would effect your eyes by (in myopics) lengthening the eyeball, and increasing curvature of the cornea…

Let me attempt to brief you on why strain plays a role. If you tense your muscles on, let's say your leg while you are standing (for a minute or more), they will start to ache. Release the tension and your legs feel better nearly immediately. Now, if the eyeball is a squishy organ rotated about its…

to finding out that Helmoholtz etc… were wrong), as well as read the stories of those who have cured or improved their baseline vision, both then and now, I believe you'll come to the same conclusion that I have, which has allowed me improvement…

@homesick Well length and curvature yes, but explain then how if it's genetic you can improve your vision without surgery or lenses please? As well as how myopics form out of families with no prior history of glasses wearing. If you stop to read Dr. Bates research into the subject (and are open…

How good is my vision? Well, I hope the rumor that the iPad 3 will have a 27" screen is true!

it's a combination of genetics, strain, and probably what we eat

@fiat- your information is incorrect. Though lots of near work can make you more nearsighted, it is not all from "strain". It has to do with the length of your eye and the curvature of your cornea. An yes it is genetic. This comment board has been quite entertaining.

12/14/11 8:51 pm

wow, we're all blind here in America. lol.

@FIAT -interesting info. I had a notion that it may have slightly leaned toward no. But to be at 71 was truly shocking. It is definitely the biggest thing I take for granted. I'm thankful that I don't have to worry about it. Not bad considering I'm 40, with 20 years of staring at computer screens.
