What is the Bates Method?

The Bates Method is a system of visual re-education that helps people who have poor sight relearn the habits of good sight.

Dr Bates maintained that the key to most visual problems was due to misuse of the visual system. He observed the habits of normally sighted people and the characteristics of normal sight and devised ways to help people with abnormal sight to relearn how to use their eyes naturally.

All day long use your eyes right. You have just as much time to use your eyes right as you have to use them wrong. It is easier and more comfortable to have perfect sight than to have imperfect sight.
