Anyone can benefit, no matter your age or for how long you have been dealing with your vision challenge.


Natural Vision Improvement is a holistic practice of developing greater awareness of how you are currently using your eyes, noticing when you are straining and practicing letting it go. It is a returning to Natural Vision.

At it’s core it is relaxation of not only your eyes, but of your mind as well. Re-establishing and allowing this normal and natural state of relaxation is of benefit to anyone, no matter your eyesight issue.


According to Dr. Bates, when you aren’t seeing well, you are straining. This strain is not only in your eyes, but  is manifested in your face, in your voice, in your walk, in the way you sit, in short in everything that you do.

Learning to let go of the strain in your eyes can help in ways you may not even be aware of.


Many people have had significant improvement and some full correction of their vision using the Bates Method of Natural Vision Improvement. People have been helped with:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Presbyopia (age-related farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (irregular blurriness)
  • Strabismus (misaligned or crossed eyes)
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Blurriness returning following LASIK surgery
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration
  • Retinitis pigmentosa


“Your sight is never perfect when you try to see. You only make yourself uncomfortable by the strain, and it never benefits you.”
