Video Course

A Video Course taught by Esther
on How to Improve Your Eyesight Naturally.

Who is this course for?
Have you perhaps taken some eyesight improvement classes but were left with a list of 'eye exercises' for which you never have the time to do them all?

Have you tried to learn the Bates Method from books and got stuck and wondered how to apply it in your life so you could really improve your eyesight?
Or are you curious about the Bates Method and wonder what it truly is about or if it might actually work for your personal vision challenge?
If so, then this video course is for you.

What can you expect from this course?
During four video sessions you follow a simple step-by-step process that demystifies the Bates Method and gives you clear explanations on how to reduce eyestrain. This course teaches you how to deal with your blurry vision and how to use your eyes so you no longer create more blurriness. Instead you will start reversing that trend so you can return to clear vision without glasses. See the 'course content' below.

Video course improves vision acuity:
Here is the experience from one of the first students of the video course, who, at the time of writing, had watched 3 of the 4 sessions:
"I already have some results from relaxing and trying not to stare etc. (start: 5 / 40 and two weeks later: 5 / 20 +3). Regards, Mariëlle C."
[Mariëlle started the course with -2.00 diopters of myopia combined with -0.75 of astigmatism. The numbers she provides show that she more than doubled her vision acuity from 5 feet in just two weeks; a great result! ~ EJvdW]

Another testimonial for the video course comes from Ireland:
Dear Esther,
How are you? I'm just writing you a quick mail to say that I have been getting a lot of benefit from the Video course I got from you. Two weeks or so ago I wrote to you to say that I had been to an optician who also does Bates work and reduced my lenses by 1 diopter and since then I have been having near complete clarity of vision using them. However since last week, Saturday actually I noticed sign posts and other signs etc coming into focus without wearing any glasses or lenses. since then I have been have extraordinary clear vision everything has improved by quite a significant amount and faces and signs all start becoming crystal clear as I walk along the streets some signs are well over 200 feet away which means my vision is back to 20/20 or even more.
I feel it was really helpful for me to find people to ask questions and to find encouragement, like you gave me.
Kind regards,
Sean MacLeod

[Sean started with -2.75 nearsightedness. Years ago he read several books about the Bates Method, attended some workshops locally but had not made much progress. Thankfully he kept his belief in the method, watched the video course, and is now enjoying great results. ~ EJvdW]

Esther teaching Bates Method on video for Optimist magazine

The following are the updates added by Esther after recording each live session:

Esther's update on 29 January 2016:
I just completed the first session of the 4 part video course on how to improve your eyesight with the Bates Method! It went REALLY WELL !!! :-) I'm delighted, and excited for the rest of the sessions in the coming three weeks.

Esther's update on 5 February 2016:
Two sessions completed! Feedback from the students is great, they love what they are learning, and the option to ask me any questions as we go is working very well. I am looking forward to sessions 3 and 4!

Esther's update on 12 February 2016:
The slight sound issues from last week were solved and this was another great session that I thoroughly enjoyed teaching. Thanks for all the questions; I'm glad I get a chance to clarify things for the participants.

Some links: Here is the page with information on nutrition for vision.
More information about breathing for vision with links to breathing coaches.
And here you'll find a guide for buying glasses online.
I mentioned John Ott today, he made a great video (DVD) about his work which is called 'Exploring the Spectrum'. It is listed on my books page along with some of John Ott's highly educational books. Check those out, and enjoy the sun this week!!!

I look forward to the last session next Friday where we'll go into the mental side of relaxed seeing and we'll get deeper into using sunlight for optimal eyesight.

Esther's update on 19 February 2016:
The last session is done and I am so grateful that 'The Optimist' team invited me to create this video course for you! It was a brand new experience for me, and I think it went very well, even better than I expected myself, and it has been a pleasure to hear from people who have already improved their vision from what they learned in this course.

Here are links to a few things I mentioned in today's final session:
Examples of Full Spectrum lamps.
New treatment for amblyopia using 3-D video technology.
For reading: my book - Read without Glasses at Any Age
and Dr. Ray Gottlieb's work - the Read Without Glasses Method
Dr. Bates' Medical Articles - for his research on the use of memory and imagination to improve eyesight.
Since completion of this course, the Eyeport I mentioned is now available again!!!
