In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld reads an article by Dr. William H. Bates M.D. called "The Imperfect SIght of the Normal Eye", originally published in the New York Medical Journal on September 8, 1917.
After he reads the article (starting at 7:00), which overviews the various causes and natural treatments for vision problems, Nathan discusses some of the key points.
Here are the four conclusions:
- All persons with normal eyes and perfect sight do not have normal eyes and perfect sight continuously.
- The cause is always an effort or strain to see.
- Treatment by eye training is successful when distant, small, familiar letters are read a few moments at least every day.
- The good results obtained justify the use of the method in all schools, the army, the navy, the merchant marine, on all railroads, in short by everybody who desires or needs continuous perfect sight.
