How to Save Money on Contacts

So you want to save money on contacts. Well you’re at the right site for that. I can teach you how to NEVER PAY A DIME FOR CONTACTS AGAIN. Too good to be true? It’s actually not. All you got to do is LEARN HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR EYESIGHT.

Contacts can cost $30 a month.

Glasses can cost as little as $9.95 for a pair that can last a lifetime. Check out and you can buy a new pair for $19.95 (if the current $9.95 promotion  is not going on).

Why is a person that has improved his eyesight, literally deliberately broken and thrown away his glasses, because he knows they do not treat the cause and are unnecesary, why is this person recommending getting glasses?

Because they’re better than contacts in both price and ease of removal.

The point is, with glasses, you can take them off and keep them off and only put them on easily when you “need” to see something immediately. So if you have to drive put them on.

OTHER than driving there are no situations that REQUIRE glasses. If you disagree with that please comment and tell me why you NEED glasses for something. I understand of course that having the ability to read from a distance is valuable but in what cases is it a situation where if you can’t read it from a distance you will undergo a significant hardship or be unable to function?

Either way, people are not going to constantly take their contacts off and put them back in, but they can with glasses.

Minimizing the time use with lenses means maximizing the time without. Removing lenses is key to improving eyesight so that you have the opportunity to relax, centrally fixate, and move to release your eye from strain and regain clarity.

How Can I Improve My Eyesight Naturally?

So you know of course that the Bates Method recommends relaxation, central fixation, and movement as the three keys to eyesight improvement. I will just focus (hah!) on relaxation now.

In order to relax, the key, the very foundation, that I think most people might be missing is simply that they must become aware of how they’re feeling. You have to realize that you are feeling. You have to realize that you have a great role in determining your feelings because:

  • you choose how to sit
  • you choose how to stand
  • you choose how to slouch
  • you choose how to not let yourself rest
  • you choose how to respond to events
  • you choose whether to hold back or let go

Now I don’t want you to get any ideas from the previous list. But become aware directly of yourself as you read this. And feel. Do you feel like you’re responding to your body’s impulses and messages or do you ignore them?

Odds are that you are numb to a great amount of your body’s impulses. Once you  start to ignore an area because it’s painful there, you do not have as good a sense of how to use that area nor what feelings you have there.

Do you suffer from back pain? Neck pain?

Well if you don’t know how to deal with it, why would you spend time feeling the pain? You can just ignore it and it doesn’t really seem so bad. BUT you’re different. You’re here to actually get results because you know that there’s no fundamental reason for you to be in pain, you just need to fix something and it will be better.

I go over methods to improve your body use in my book of course.

That all being said, I want to give you something you can use right now. So pay attention. What you have to do is let go of your body. Let go of your old body that is. Let go of your old physical habits and orientation and mal-coordination and let yourself discover your deeper better more naturally moving and higher-functioning self.

The stress, strain, numbness, and pain don’t feel right for a reason. They don’t feel right because you know that’s not what you’re supposed to feel, but what you might not yet know that I wish to reveal to you here is that you are the cause of your stress and strain and that you can let that go and make miraculous gains of health and happiness and improved functioning.

All it takes is first feeling and then let your body do the healing.

How do you let your body do the healing? YOU STOP USING YOUR MIND.

That’s right. Your mind is obviously stuck (for the most part for most people this is the case). Think about it. When someone tells you to sit up straight and you try to do it, does it ever work? Or does it always still feel wrong and full of effort? How about that shoulder tension? Does doing the same pulling , straining, or kvetching get you to finally being relaxed?


So what can you do?

Stop using your mind to control yourself and give back the reigns to your animal.

Imagine for a minute that you didn’t have all kinds of stupid ideas and b.s. mentally constructed obligations in your head for a bit and see how your body acts. This means for a full minute let yourself do what your body wants to do without blocking it.

Here’s what people do:





Where are you in this?

Do you start flapping your arms? Do you start moving around? Do you notice that you want to sleep or at least get some shut eye?

Think about how different it is with regards to improving your health. Would you wake up a cat or dog that was sleeping and not bothering anyone? No!

You would just trust that it knows when to sleep and when to be awake. What about trusting yourself?

I want you to know that I have had A LOT of physical stress and strain in my body. I know what it’s like to sit on my ass for 12 hour+ days day in day out for months. I know what it’s like to have a tight neck, stiff back, and tight painful shoulders. I also know what it’s like to make that tension dissolve. I know what it’s like to move differently and discover a realm of freedom that I did not physically have since early childhood. I know how awesome it is to rediscover that in my twenties when I can have a whole lot more fun and have no adults telling me what to do.

And I also know what it’s like to help others achieve the same, and it’s one of my biggest joys by far because there’s nothing like giving people a gift that they truly appreciate and get long-term value out of. Your pain or your pleasure go with you every day. There’s nothing wrong with your body or even your mind fundamentally, but you need to learn new ways. New habits and a new understanding of how you function psycho-physiologically.

You may never have succeeded to get in your body and stay embodied, but after reading my e-book or getting a session or two with me you should have a persisting ability to on your own dissolve all your excess tension bit by bit and reveal the perfectly functioning human animal you’ve trapped inside for so long.



Supplements for Vision Improvement

There are general recommendations I would make for a better vision diet and lifestyle. Those would include the basic prevention methods for diabetes such as:

  • eating a truly low fat diet (less than 20% of calories coming from fat)
  • eating much more than the USDA’s recommendations of fruits and vegetables
  • sleeping plenty and in proper environment (dark room with air flow)

However there also are two herbs/supplements I recommend. The first is bilberry:

Bilberry is a fruit that looks like blueberries and grows in the coldest climates including Norway and Finland.

Bilberry Fruit

I have been taking a supplement from a company called “Nature’s Life” and have noticed improvements. As usual it’s tough to tell whether it is the pill or the placebo, but it doesn’t really matter because either way the change is positive. Remember, the placebo is simply you harnessing your own power to a greater degree through ritual. Ritual works.

The second is eyebright. Eyebright is known by name in many languages as an herb to improve eyesight so that in itself is a good sign.

English – Eyebright

French – Casse Lunettes – translates to throw away glasses

German – Augentrost – translates to Eye Comfort

I do not remember the name in Italian but it is another similar one.

Here’s a picture of this beautiful plant:

So if you’re interested in trying out these supplements, I recommend them, but not as the primary method for vision improvement. I do not know of people that have just taken these supplements as their sole method of eyesight improvement and have been successful, but I haven’t asked around either.

Well, I hope this post finds you in good cheer. I have found some wonderful changes occurring lately and wish everyone the best in clarity and health.

“I thought Eyesight has to do with heredity”

It’s common for people to think that your vision has to do with your genetics. People think that because they commonly notice that a child has glasses as does the parent and vice versa.

However, this does not mean that it is the genetics. Similar to this, we could look at obesity. Obese parents are more likely to have obese children, but is it because of their genetics or is it because of their behaviors? Obese people eat more calories and exercise less and they are selecting the food and much of the activities of their children.

Similarly, myopic and hyperopic parents are choosing to use glasses as a response to blurry vision and are essentially stuck in their ways, unless they begin to entertain the notion that there is a true cause to their blurry vision and that they can do something about it.

But the real data to look at is the staggering increases in myopia that have occurred in the last thirty years. I haven’t checked in a while, but last I read – in the 1970’s in the United States the rate of myopia was around 23% and now it is around 42%. One cannot attribute genetics as the cause of that jump because the genetics have not changed that much – but people’s behaviors are. Furthermore, in the African American community the rate of myopia increased around three fold from around 13% to 38%.

People are spending less time outdoors and more time indoors. That means less time relaxing and getting natural sunlight and looking to the distance and more time using unnatural light (some that are known to be harmful directly and others that simply mess with bio-rhythms) and more time in small enclosed areas literally staring at screens.

For more than just our eyes, there’s a big difference between a video of a forest and being in an actual forest. When you watch a video you can pretend that it’s 3d, but it’s not. However, that pretend process may be quite harmful to your eyes because you are staring at the same distance from yourself and not moving.

Vision is more than just about having acuity and sharp resolution. Vision is a dynamic interactive process with the world. Three dimensionality, quickness of environmental appraisal, and ability to process experience are fundamental parts of vision that need to be looked at.

I wish you greater clarity than you’ve known.


Are you afraid to look? Allow yourself to face your fears.

So one of the techniques I’m using is facing my fears. Some of these are minor fears or simply avoiding seeing certain things. For example, gross out videos. I am not attracted to seeing people eating bugs, or huge pus filled cysts, or seeing people getting hurt. However, I do not want to avoid seeing these things either and feel like if I can watch those videos and process my feelings I will be able to see more clearly.

Why would you not want to see something other than because seeing that thing would make you feel bad. It may be appropriate to feel bad seeing disgusting or painful things, but we may be bent too far in one direction where through this fear we are avoiding all sorts of interactions.

Are you afraid to feel? Are you afraid to strike up conversations or breach touchy topics?

Lasik makes you permanently myopic.

So a lot of people ask, “should I get lasik”, or “what’s wrong with lasik”.

Now, disregarding all the facts and cases of people that have become blind or significantly impaired from botched surgeries. And ignoring the fact that a lot of people find that their vision is worse than it was with glasses, we can simply look at what the surgery does.

It encourages permanent myopia. Why? Because myopia is a result of an elongated eyeball. What does lasik do? Point light farther back than your retina should be. Lasik encourages the eye to be long and stay long.

Now if we are admitting that myopia is a disease or an undesirable condition, then we must seek to cure or reverse it, not simply accept the bad and act as though nothing can be changed so we must use some kind of external tools. Lasik is sort of like getting a permanent tummy tuck (stomach stapling). Because a person doesn’t know how to eat right for whatever reasons be they emotional or informational and they eat more than they determine is good for them, a person could say okay let’s make your stomach smaller and then you’ll eat less. That will work, but it comes at a high price not to be scoffed at. Unlike The Cure For Blur which costs pennies compared to it and has no risks whatsoever.

There is a very real cause why a person’s vision is blurry. And that cause is important for their psychological growth – for their very existence.

Imagine you were a shy person and because of that you would slouch your head down and shoulders forward. Perhaps you don’t realize that you can overcome your shyness and walk openly and happily and proudly and meet people and have a great time socially, so you just live your life as a shy person. You have some friends, maybe some lovers, and perhaps a job where you’re not too happy but you’re too shy to complain or think that you deserve better. You do notice that your shoulders and neck hurt though and hear about Shasik Surgery which helps people stop slouching by simply shortening their shoulder and neck muscles through surgery – this way you are nice and tall all the time. People do it and lo and behold they’re walking tall and it looks pretty good! Sure some people complain that they feel they can’t move as much as before but for the most part everyone says they’re satisfied with the irreversible surgery…

If stress and strain cause blur, why not root out the source of the stress and strain and retrain yourself to live happily? The causes are important or the response is inappropriate.

Either something really bad is happening such as verbal or physical abuse or being trapped in an undesirable situation (keep in mind most people begin their blurry vision as minors). Or something not so bad is happening but one’s mind makes it appear so, for example a person might become very uncomfortable with their sexuality so instead of going and dancing and talking to people they shy away look down and feel a struggle that either subdues them into retreat or gets them to be passive aggressive self defeating etc…

These are worthwhile issues to resolve at their source.

Empirical Data Showing Eyesight Improvement with the Bates Method

Here it is, actually demonstrations of visual fluctuations – improvements in visual acuity through 15 minute – 45 minute eyesight improvement sessions recorded by the author over skype. Both clients were already somewhat familiar with the concept of healing and believed in the possibility of their eyesight improving. The results speak for themselves.

Below is Kevin F. who had around a -4 prescription at the start and reports stress and strain which can be seen in the video.

The following is David A. who improves from being able to read the 3rd line to reading the 7th line.

To book consultations…

Do they know what’s going on?

Now I find it very interesting that studies show eyes growing and shrinking on a daily basis – this makes me wonder about the diagrams that show the emmetropic (clear-sighted) eye. Are people having their vision fluctuate from clear to more clear or less clear, or do they adjust with their lens to maintain clarity?

Anyhow, any thinker should be satisfied to be unsatisfied with lenses and lasers as methods towards healing. The evidence adds up on both sides. The clinical data that speaks mostly of how vision can get worse, can be used to explain how to get it better, or how to prevent its occurrence. That…

And experience can get validated. What your grandparents know, knew, or did and what you think or have experienced can be validated. You can start to believe that improvement is possible and real and normal and the whole discussion in a certain sense becomes ridiculous, like laundry listing why do something that is obviously good.

Where it gets interesting is figuring out different methods that lead to relaxation or increased visual acuity. What stops people from seeing clear? What will help people see consistently better? How quickly can we get lasting change? How can we get this change spread throughout the world?

These questions apply to most other current physical afflictions. We know obesity is reversible and the myriad of health effects that come along with it.

How are we going to be the change and once we are the change or what if we never were obese, how do we inspire people to become healthier?

By doing something different, overt, and get noticeably better results than those around you – or at least show the viability of your path.

 Anyhow, sticking to eyesight, I can see that the reason I write this is because of the skeptics and liars.
PreventionThere is no way to prevent nearsightedness. Reading and watching television do not cause nearsightedness. In the past, dilating eye drops were proposed as a treatment to slow the development of nearsightedness in children, but they have never been proven effective.The use of glasses or contact lenses does not affect the normal progression of myopia — they simply focus the light so the nearsighted person can see distant objects clearly. Hard contact lenses will sometimes hide the progression of nearsightedness, but vision will still get worse “under” the contact lens.”Can you smell the bull crap?

Check out the V and VI module – does that not show lenses alter the progression of myopia?

“Normal progression of myopia”… how can the NIH say that there is a normal progression of myopia when myopia increased from 26% to 42% over 30 years? Myopia nearly doubled… what’s the normal progression?



Court Vision – Life Vision: Jason Kidd | Look Around!

So I am an avid basketball player and have seen players like Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, or Larry Bird make amazing passes where they are not even looking at the recipient of the pass! How do they do that?

By having great court vision. Court vision is… seeing the whole court, knowing where the defense is, where the offense is, and perhaps more importantly… where it’s going to go and how they can move the ball around to get the results they want.

When it comes to eyesight, wearing glasses diminishes your court vision because it improperly trains your eyes to not look at the extremes. The glasses are only covering a limited area and the eyes no longer look to areas where the glasses are not.

Contact lenses decrease oxygen flow and hydration, which explains why people complain about dry or itchy eyes. The added weight slows the eyes down too and the dryness and itchiness makes movement less smooth. Most people don’t like to hurt themselves… if it hurts to do something or is irritating, they’ll do it less. If contacts irritate your eyes when you move them, you’ll move your eyes less, and then thus see less.

No lasik is not a solution… it permanently cuts off an essential part of your eye and by definition prevents healing.

So look around.
