Perfect Sight Without Glasses
by Dr. William H. Bates
This is Dr. William Bates’s original 1920 book. The cover title was Perfect Sight Without Glasses. The title on the inside title page was The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment Without Glasses. Bates self-published this book under The Central Fixation Publishing Company.
The book’s copyright expired in 1948. It is now in the public domain. This book should not be confused with…Read more Better Eyesight Without Glasses, also titled The Bates Method for Better Eyesight Without Glasses, an abridged edition first published in 1943, twelve years after Bates’s death. That edition is more widely available, but it excludes large portions of the text and all pictures, and a little content added by his widow Emily. His method was only called the “Bates method” later on. While he was alive, Bates explained it as simply the methods used by the eye with good vision, and he didn’t give it any other formal name. There is also a relatively short 1996 book titled simply The Bates Method, by Peter Mansfield, and several other books with variations on the title. Note that this book is not really a book of eye exercises. The author gives many suggested methods, but the value of the book is in his explanation of his approach. This was the pioneering book that started the whole modern natural vision improvement movement. (explanation from iblindness.org)

Help Yourself To Better Sight
by Margaret Corbett
“This book, originally published in 1949, conveys Corbett’s excellent understanding of the Bates Method. She was one of the people whom Dr. Bates trained extensively to teach the method to others.
This is now one of the top books I recommend to other people interested in improving their vision, not because Corbett delves deep into any complexities, but because she presents…Read more
the Bates Method in a very straightforward, truthful way, without making any of the mistakes that even well-meaning Bates followers often make. This book is a great starting point.” (from a review on amazon)

The Rapid Healing Technique
Book 1 & Book 2
by Dr. Jerriann Taber
The Rapid Healing Technique Book One gives you the tools for transformation. It is for the many people who are on the spiritual path, no matter what part of the path you are on. This book is meant to empower you and give you the tools to heal yourself…Read more
There is an old saying, “There are many roads that lead to Rome,” just as there are many paths that lead to God. The Rapid Healing Technique is only one way. I do believe that it is a very simple and easy way that anyone can learn. We are evolving spiritually at a very rapid rate now. I have spent more than a quarter of a century in one of the traditional approaches to healing. This was the very best available at the time. It was a very deep body-centered therapy dealing with repressed emotions, bringing them up and healing them. Now a more rapid form of healing has been revealed that is so simple that you can take your own power and be your own healer in partnership with the Master Jesus or any of the Masters that you feel a connection to.. If one feels stuck, a therapist in the Rapid Healing Technique can be helpful; but for the most part, you can be your own healer.
This work will be especially easy for people who have done other types of healing work as they understand the healing process and have had experience in dealing with their feelings. The only difference is that you move very quickly through your feelings. Therapists will find the Rapid Healing Technique extremely beneficial for clients, assisting them in their practice. It is also very helpful for those who cannot seem to access their feelings and have
symptoms to deal with. In my own practice, I sometimes use hypnosis work to get to the issues and then use the Rapid Healing Technique to heal the issues. For myself, because I had done so much emotional release work, I have used it both ways, removing fears as well as using it very extensively on a symptomatic level. I had polio at an early age (15 months old) that left me with a smaller left leg and a limp; there were still symptoms that had never been dealt with on a very deep cellular level. I feel these issues were at the very core of my being. The Rapid Healing Technique has allowed me to release tremendous tension on a very deep level. There will always be some mystery in the spiritual realm that we will not understand, but that also creates a challenge to keep moving toward a higher good within ourselves to move inward and upward.

Total Health At The Computer: How To Be Pain Free
by Martin Sussman
As might be expected from authors who are vision specialists (Sussman is executive director of the Cambridge Institute for Better Vision in Massachusetts; Loewenstein is an optometrist and professor of optics at Boston’s New England College of Optometry), the main focus of their book is remedying optic problems caused by computer use…Read more
Part One emphasizes the importance of a proper computer set-up (to eliminate visual stress) and posture, and offers a series of “3-minute routines”–stretches, deep breathing, eye exercises–designed to alleviate symptoms of what the authors call Computer Stress Syndrome. Part Two covers vision enhancement training. Carpal Tunnel and Repetitive Stress Syndromes (both widely reported by computer users) are mentioned only briefly, and there is a short section on electromagnetic radiation. Although it’s not the comprehensive guide to computer health that it’s billed to be, for those suffering from the specific vision problems discussed, this simple manual may provide help.
