of Joy is the School of Optimal Eyesight which aims to have you
experience the sheer joy of seeing with natural clarity!
Visions of Joy was founded by Esther
Joy van der Werf in August of 2000. Esther is a certified
Natural Vision Educator (NVE).
When I improved my own vision back to 20/20 in just two weeks, after
16 years of blurry vision, I felt elated, suprised, and... upset...
Elated with my renewed clear vision, surprised that the method worked
so well, and upset, because I wondered why nobody had told me about
this 16 years earlier!?!
If it was so easy to do, why didn't anybody know about it? Why was
I not offered this alternative when I was first given glasses??
Why did eye-doctors not know, or at least not tell me, that vision
can improve quickly and easily when provided with the right circumstances?
loaded with questions and with a determination to 'right a wrong',
I delved deeply into the topic of natural vision improvement, and
I continue to do so. I soon started my own eyesight school - Visions
of Joy represents a joyful vision of a world where people see clearly
and never need glasses, because they know how to quickly and easily
reverse any blurry vision as soon as it starts.
of Joy's aim is to increase awareness of the little known alternative
to glasses, contact lenses or laser surgery, and to offer you effective
natural solutions to a large variety of vision challenges.
optimal time to reverse vision problems is when eyesight first becomes
blurry, because that is when blur disappears quickly and clarity
returns easily. If at that time you recognize the cause, learn
and integrate the lesson, release the dis-ease and tension,
and remind yourself of natural vision habits, you can happily continue
your entire life with clear vision.
If you have had blurry
vision for many years, and used glasses or contacts to compensate
for it, you may find returning to clarity takes some time, yet it
never takes as long to return to clarity as it took to get to this
point of blur.
Blurry vision is not
a life sentence, nor is it a sign that there is something fundamentally
'wrong' with your eyes. The blur is merely a signal to you
that you are straining your eyes and that it is time to make a subtle
yet significant change.
The natural approach to eyesight improvement has no negative side
effects (actually it has many beneficial side effects!) and it happens
to be the cheapest solution. It also gives the best results
(see the testimonials),
it just takes a little understanding, along with some patience and
