    In the last few weeks, following the input of a man who had his vision
    destroyed by a wrong lasik procedure, several clients are coming who
    want to try the Bates books for the relief of very unpleasant symptoms
    they are developing after the surgery.

    Mostly, these people are really desperate.

    They suffer from pains, migrain, imbalances of any kind, like tremors,
    legs that become crippled, arthritis, and all kinds of similar

    These people have already made use of many kinds of medical treatments,
    spending a lot of money, in the course of five years the amount of
    money is huge, fifty thousand eur is the average.



    The people are desperate as ever.

    Now the contention is that according to Dr. Bates, any kind of
    pathology of the eye, organic or functional, is cured by the perfect
    imagination of a black dot.

    People will find this very difficult to demonstrate: the black dot DOES
    NOT APPEAR in the mind of those who have imperfect sight.

    So Bates has some truth in what he says.

    But the peculiar trait of these lasiked people is that they have a very
    difficult eye defect (an injury created by a surgical operation) which
    is not "natural" and was not available in Bates' times (although Dr.
    Bates did invent the operation on the cornea to cure myopia, and
    quickly abandoned it because of its unsuccessfulness).

    These people have a "good" vision, but they have an eccentric fixation,
    their central fixation is lost because the eye is still myopic.

    The question here is if the self-treatment by rest methods can be
    effective in the two directions:

    1) emmetropization of the eye
    2) repairing of the injury created by the laser under the cornea.

    I will post regularly on this board the progress of the people
    involved, if they will start their own self-treatment.

    Chances are that they won't start the treatment, unfortunately.

    According to the book Stories From the Clinic, cases of scratches on
    the cornea found a complete cure in the Twenties. We will see if this
    can happen today for the laser scratches.

    Dear Reader,

    To help you put this gentleman in context, I suggest you review his
    posting history.

    If you still feel compelled to read his posts, or (God forbid) follow
    his advice, I would strongly suggest you do so under the close
    supervision of a qualified optometrist or ophthalmologist.

    Here you go again.

    You think to be smarter and more intelligent than the
    "reader". I mean, what's wrong with you ? Do you really
    think to be so much better than the "reader" that you
    have to put "gentlemen" in context ?

    What's the context ?
    Your unfortunate context ?

    It is funny that you are trying to do one thing (get people
    to avoid rishi's) and in fact you are getting the opposite
    result (the intelligent would be curious to read, and since
    they are intelligent they'll doubt "professionals" and they
    will start to go toward the truth about vision).

    This is happening to you in your eye problems also: you
    try to see better, and try and strain, and the more you try
    the worse you see. You're getting the opposite of what
    you want. Lol.

    I bet you are one of those strange people that think
    that without effort nothing can be accomplished.

    Why are you so obsessed with this idea ?
