The cure of imperfect sight by treatment without glasses by William Horatio Bates( Book )

William Horatio Bates provides an alternative look at the study of the eye. He does not deny that there are certain visual defects people experience; however, he does deny that glasses are the one and only solution. Instead, Bates' studies have led him to believe that simple muscle relaxation could relieve the strain that is the cause of most eye problems. This idea is now referred to as the Bates Method. This book is still consulted today by people seeking alternative solutions to their vision issues

Better eyesight without glasses : retrain your eyes and rediscover 20/20 vision by William Horatio Bates( Book )

13 editions published between 1920 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The method aims to restore sight by using exercises to relax the eye muscles before retraining the eyes to focus effectively. Prescription glasses act as a prop for the muscles in your eyes and so, over time, the muscles actually get weaker. In fact, in the long term, glasses can only ever weaken your eyes. But, with the Bates Method you can retrain the eye muscles to work again, and perhaps even learn to do without glasses altogether. The Bates Method works two-folds, firstly with a series of exercises that relax and soothe the eye muscles, and secondly, retrains the relaxed eyes to focus effectively. The exercises are simple and easy to follow, and millions around the world have improved their vision using them. The book has influenced whole generations of people who believe that wearing glasses is the best way to improve your eyesight." --Publisher description
