What is Natural Vision Improvement?


1. What is natural vision improvement?


Most vision problems start with some form of eye strain or stress.


Natural Vision Improvement is a technique of preventing and reversing functional disorder of eye, without any surgery, through relaxation, exercise and natural process.


This process specially work on any type of refractive error, i.e.-short sightedness, long sightedness, astigmatism and so called " old age sight" or reading blur.


Even, this process can relieve eye problem-


  • Myopia
  • Hypermetropia
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia
  • Amblyopia(Lazy eyes)
  • Squint/Strabismus
  • Glaucoma
  • Nystagmus
  • Macula Degeneration
  • Night Blindness
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Dry eyes



The approach of 'Natural Vision Improvement' is to teach people how to see without strain. The method was originally developed by Dr. William Bates in the early 1900's. Poor eyesight stems from poor vision habits such as staring and straining hard to see. Good natural eyesight can be regained by learning and applying good vision techniques and habits



2. Who is the founder of natural vision improvement?


Dr. W. H. Bates (M.D.)


Ophthalmologist and discoverer of the cure of imperfect sight by treatment without glasses Later, many eye care professionals such as Harry Benjamin, Harold Peppered, Janet Goodrich, Dr. R.S. Agarwal researched and developed new techniques for natural vision improvement.


1. Modern ophthalmologic approach about eyesight.


Along with the advancement of medical science, ophthalmology has progressed considerably within the last couple of decades. Now, we can determine diseases like glaucoma, optic atrophy, retinal detachment, squint etc easily by using technological support.


But, this scientific invention does not ensure safe, side effect free treatment even today which natural vision improvement does. And thus, doctors cannot guarantee or boldly say complete success of their treatment for the diseases mentioned here.


Conventional treatment for refractive error –


Wearing spectacles or contact lens for constant use: It temporarily helps the person see but within a few days the power of the eyes starts increasing. Patient gradually becomes so dependent on spectacles that he/she cannot see anything without it. Doctors prescribe spectacles to correct vision but it actually harms vision strongly in the long run and leads to surgery.


Lasik surgery after 18 years of age: As the age advances doctor advices to go for lasik surgery assuring that there will be no chance of eye power through the life. In many cases patients are in a big trouble after lasik.


Why conventional treatment is not perfect in almost all cases?


The conventional treatment does not follow the after effects.

Almost everyone thinks that he can see everything with glasses means he has no problem in his eyes and spectacles helps to improve eyesight. Even, their mind cannot accept the truth that- "spectacles cannot cure visual effects; it only helps to see everything clearly". Nowadays a major part among school children is wearing spectacles or contact lens or any type of visual aid only because we are more careful about their eyesight. We advice them to wear spectacles continuously to avoid further deterioration, but in the long term we feel that refractive error has increased and the child/student need stronger glasses than before.
