Natural Eyesight Improvement-Ophthalmologist Bates’ Main Practices-Shifting & Seeing Eyecharts Clear

The best way to
improve your vision
at all distances is to get the eyesight
in the left and right
eyes equally clear, and perfectly clear
at all distances. So let’s take a
look at this pdf. This is from Doctor
Bates and his assistant
Emily A. Bates. Doctor Snellen This is his eyechart.
A few antique charts. And you can read
these basic directions. There’s ten steps to
see the eyechart clear. I’ll just let you
pause the video. Here’s some
extra information. Doctor Snellen, he
invented the eyechart. Let’s make it
larger, that way be sure it shows
well in the video.
Let’s move this here. Hold this for
a second. You can
read that. Okie doke. Back,
here ya go. This here is an
old fashioned
eyepatch. I made one. I’ll show
you that in a minute.
Here’s the eye doctor using the patch
to test the
boy’s vision. The best way to do it,
on a real eyechart, at
real distances. I don’t like those machines
they use to simulate
close and far. We want to test our
vision at the real
distance were looking at. And that gives us
a accurate reading. Okie doke. You seen
this in our other videos.
In our previous video I showed you an eyepatch
I did not like cause it
kept pressing on my eye. So these are what
I use when I practice
myself and I teach it to other people. See how I’ve made this
and I put something on
here that I pop on there, it doesn’t touch my
eye and this keeps
the patch from touching my eye.
You have to be
careful, do it right. You can learn on
my website how
to make these. And this is one
patch and you
can slide it, for each eye. The reason we use
eye patches is
because you’re not supposed to close
one eye at a time
when you’re practicing, cause that tenses, ya
see how that tenses
my eyelids and my facial muscles, and that can
get into your eyes and your eye muscles and
cause some tension, and
that can lower the vision. You don’t want any
muscle tension in your
neck. See how this goes. ‘Squinting’; same thing.
It’s the worst thing you
can do to see clear. It gives you a tiny
bit of clear vision
for a second. You can hold it for
a while, and then it
starts to hurt, be uncomfortable and you
have to let it go. The
correct way when you look at something; you
wanna see my hand; you
just move from part to part. See my finger;
part to part.
And blink, and relax. Don’t squint to see.
Replace squinting
with just shifting. So you get your
vision equal in the
left and right eyes by looking close and far
and shifting on objects at
close and far distances, one object at a time,
one distance at a time.
Back and forth. Shift on a close
object, then a far. Shift close, far. Both eyes together,
one eye at a time. Got my thing, rests
on here inside the hat. Get my piece, so the patch is not
touching my eye. And then I still keep
things in the central
field, and I go close and far. Shifting on
the close, and then
the far, close, far… And then
you switch. You do the other eye.
If you have vision in, If vision in one eye
is less clear; you
practice a little bit longer with that eye.
Maybe a minute.
Then you go back to the clearest vision eye
and do maybe 5 seconds.
And that keeps a balance in the vision. So you’re
trying to improve your
vision and keep it equal at the same time.
So you’re going
up to a higher, better level
of vision, and you’re
them equal. So, then you end
with both eyes
together again. Here’s another one,
where you can just flip them up. I don’t have my
thing on this one,
but I’ll leave it, I know how to
be careful, I
use these a lot. This covered. These
kind of patches let
light into the eye you’re not using. So I’m
still getting some
light on the side. That keeps both brain
hemispheres active. Each eye is still active.
Same for this one. Each eye is still active.
Same for this one. And then you
can switch it. Well you don’t
have to do that. With this one you just
switch patches. This
is a two patch hat. There ya go.
Now in this one; this is mostly
if you’re sitting. Another reason for eye
patches is so you’re not
holding your hand up getting that tension in
the shoulder which can get into the face,
head and eye muscles
and lower the vision. So this is mostly for
sitting, when you’re
relaxing and you’re practicing your fine,
microscopic print and
the diamond type, all the different sizes
of small and tiny print. Both eyes together,
one eye at a time.
When you do one eye at a time, you
got this and you can
just rest your arm on your lap. So you
got a lot less tension. You don’t want to
hold your arm up
forever, but it’s still better, than, um…
Sometimes I just
don’t like the eyepatch because I want to
block out all light
in one eye sometimes. I’m looking at
the camera,
blinking, relaxed. Then test my
other eye. Blink, relax.
And move from
part to part. Both eyes
together. Looking at
the tiny print; The HD. The HD. The HD. Extra practice with
the less clear eye. Can’t remember. This one’s a tiny bit less
clear sometimes so I do
a little extra practice. There we go. A second Maybe five, ten seconds
with this eye. Most people have
a dominant eye. I practice this and then
BOOM, both eyes are
equally, perfectly clear. And you can feel the
switch over in your
brain when that happens, it’s a very good feeling.
You can feel the balance
occurring in your brain. It’s relaxed, clear. I practiced a little bit
too long with that one.
You get the idea. Extra practice with the
less clear vision eye. Up to about a minute.
Sometimes you can go
longer. And then always do like maybe 5, 10 or
so seconds with the
clearest vision eye, cause you want to keep
a balance, but you
want to have some extra practice with the
less clear vision eye. And you get a, I think
it’s called a ratio, ratio. And then; end with both
eyes together again. So there you go, you’re
cutting out all the light.
This lets in a little light. It’s not perfect
like you see in
the picture here that the eye
doctor uses. I’m trying to learn how
to make one. I’ll probably
end up buying one. But this works pretty good.
And I’m not hitting my
eye; see how it has a cup. I was careful to make
it nice and smooth so
there’s no sharp edges, little pieces that were
gonna hit my eye if
I accidently slip. And you gotta be
careful when you’re
using this too. So it cups over
your eye, nothing
is touching. It’s a good feeling. Get the vision equally
clear and perfect in
the left and right eyes. And then it will be
a lot easier to keep
your vision clear. Be careful when you’re
using an eyepatch; don’t
touch your eyeball with it. Remember to practice
with the loose patch so
you can let some light in. Each eye gets light.
You’re not completely
shutting down the eye not in use, from light. You’re not
completely shutting out
the light, and that keeps a balance in your brain
hemispheres, your visual
system, working with your left and right eyes.
So that would be this
type of patch. And then do some with much more
light blocked out, although
this isn’t perfect, but its ok. So you’re, when, like
right now I’m forcing, in a gentle, easy way,
I’m forcing this eye to be completely
independent. Both eyes move together
still, even when the eyes
are closed or one is covered. But, Let me repeat that.
When your eyes are
closed and you think about something; the
eyes still move together.
I’m thinking about a black kitty and I’m moving
around; eyes are moving
together, shifting together. Coordinate. When one eye
is covered the eyes still move,
when they move,
they move together. I’m shifting on the
camera again, both
eyes are moving. But there’s less
light in this eye, so
it’s making this eye and the brain think;
oh we’ve gotta make
sure the vision’s clear in that eye now, and
it gives it some extra
work. Some extra umm, focus, maybe that’s
the word, the brain on
that, working with that eye. Then you
do the other. Crystal clear. Crystal clear. There you go. Okie Doke. Let’s see;
do, do, do, do, do. So remember; do not
close one eye at a time
when you’re doing these practices. It causes
tension, getting a tight
muscle in your eyelid… You don’t want that. Especially for people
who have dry eyes; you
want to keep your eyes, your tear gland, your
eyelid glands, the oil
in the eyelid glands, that, they produce oil
and the tear glands
producing the tears and all the ingredients in the
tears and they mix together.
You want everything in those eyelids’ area
free of tension, and for
optimum function. So now you have a better
eyepatch and you can make
one yourself. This is black duct tape. I use
black so I would block out a lot of light.
This is a piece of wood
and I covered it so there’s no splinters
in your eye. So… I’ll show
you this again. You can read it. This is
on the website, you can
read this on the website. It’s in the book
Perfect Sight
Without Glasses. Our version where
we’ve added a lot
of extra pictures. Symbols are easy
to see. Prevents
effort to see. When ya, when
you don’t try to see,
as we were talking ‘squinting, staring,
being immobile’. When you just relax,
and you move on the
object from part to part, move to
else, look at
familiar; it’s nice
and clear. These are kinda like
familiar eyecharts. Symbols are familiar.
You have the ones for
children with animals. This is an easy chart.
You’re not becoming
immobile looking at every letter on the line,
thinking of it as a test.
You just look at it, cheoooo, whole
chart’s read
and clear. E T D P F O A These E’s; familiar object,
all you have to know
is which way it’s going. Lot of times you go
to the eye doctor
and they have you looking at all these
unfamiliar things, and you won’t pass
the test because their
pressuring you, you’re not looking
at a real distance
in the sunlight. Or just, even
in artificial light;
it’s still better at least if you can not
be looking through a
machine. It’s always best in the sun
when you want
to test your vision. But you should
be able to see in
dimmer light too. So that’s it.
Okie Doke.
