    I have been prescribed glasses for reading purposes, the problem is I
    feel that the pressure in my eyes has risen as a result of wearing
    these glasses, and I feel that my glaucoma is much worse from wearing
    these glasses, is this a common symptom and will i get used to the
    glasses?

    Discard the glasses and start to learn the wonderful things you can do
    by training your mind to relaxation.

    No, glasses cannot worsen glaucoma- yes, you should adapt to the new
    glasses in a few days or so. If not, you should go back and get
    a recheck to ensure your prescription is correct for you.

    Why the doctors CANNOT answer a simple question: WHY GLASSES ANNOY SO
    MUCH THE PATIENT THE FIRST DAYS OF USE, AND ALSO IN MANY CASES FOR THE
    WHOLE LIFE?

    You please answer.

    If you do not know, please say "I do not know".

  5. Do you really believe such crap? Do you have to go back to 1937 for an
    endorsement?

    If Bates did not catch on it is because of a combination of his methods not
    being effective and being more annoying than the visual defect.

    If there are people out there willing to go through enough all those
    exercises and end up being able to get a driver's license without
    glasses--more power to them.

    My involvement with Bates hearkens back to when I was a defenseless kid
    getting glasses slapped on because of the medical expertise of primary
    school teachers. :( As I grew older and learned more about science, the
    silliness of the method began to sink in.

    And do you really have to defer to the hack eye doctors here, whose
    beliefs go back to a hundred years before that?
    Yes, the idea that relaxation is good for anything is absurd. Tension
    is the way to progress, I say! And tension never had a bad effect on
    anything, most especially not anything closely connected to the mind
    or brain. Right?

  7. Relaxation is just fine. Avoiding tension is fine. It is sneaking the words
    in using new meanings that I object to. It is liking many Communist
    organization of that time having *democracy* in their names. They had
    nothing to do with democracy.

    That's exactly what your bad doctors are doing since four hundred years.
    They HIDE a lie behind a facade of truth. Exactly like the communicts,
    and the anti-communicts (they are just the same---we have yet to find a
    HEALTHY MAN).

  9. Glasses have no effect on glaucoma. It's like an engine problem in
    your car has no effect on your braking of the car. They are two
    completely separate areas.

    Pressure felt by people is most likely not glaucoma related. People
    with glaucoma rarely feel pressure in their eyes.

    A "pressure"-like feeling in your eyes is most likely just your eyes
    adapting to the new prescription (in a way like our feet "adapt" to
    new shoes).

    You should get used to the glasses within a few days to a couple of
    weeks. However, this can vary with people's individual situation, and
    as such, I strongly recommend you speak to your actual optometrist who
    prescribed you the glasses.
