In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld interviews Irena Castle about her brand new invention called Overbound Eyesight Trainer and how it can help us achieve more "360º Vision" through peripheral stimulation.
This exciting new device utilizes selective vision obstruction to block the central vision, which allows the user to activate their peripheral vision. The implications of this can not only help athletes improve their performance, but it can also help anyone improve their overall visual performance in everyday life.
