The most remarkable testimony came from Aldous Huxley, who could barely even read a book, 'The proof of the pudding is in the eating... Within a couple of months I was reading without spectacles and, what was better still, without fatigue!... (this was) the first and most convincing test that the system works.'
Written in a simple and lucid style, the book is a definitive guide to the Bates Method. The stress in on natural methods such as palming and central fixation, and home treatment, wherever practical. Bates Method has helped countless persons recover their natural eyesight proving that good eyesight without glasses is not a myth, but a very achievable reality.
The present volume is a thoroughly researched and updated edition of the classic work.
