Example of rest treatment for myopic people to demonstrate mentalstrain and how to relieve it

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by Rishi Giovanni Gatti, Jan 21, 2004.

  1. This is for all myopic people.

    Remove your glasses and wait 5 or 10 minutes with closed eyes (better if
    covered with the palms of your hands).

    Prepare a quite good source of light like a bulb lamp. Lit it.

    Stare at the lamp from close distance, lets' say 1 meter or 3 feet.

    Just one or two seconds of staring may suffice.

    Close the eyes and see the permanent images you always have if you are
    myopic and you look at a bulb lamp.

    Open your eyes and see the persistent images stil lingering while you
    look in the distance, for example the opposite wall in the room.

    Now take a piece of paper printed in fine print (diamond 4 for example,
    or less) and read it very close to the eyes: you will see the persisten
    images vanish very quickly.

    If you look again in the distance, the images will reappear.

    Looking again at close distance at the fine print, images of the bulb
    lamp will vanish again.

    Repeat few times alternating looking in the distance and at the near point.

    You will see that when the persistent images are all gone your vision
    will be improved.


    Idiots who have suffered refractive surgery cannot do this experiment
    because they are ruined forever.

    It will be interesting to know any results if some of the readers is
    bold enough or intelligent enough to try the experiment.

    I have variants of the experiment to suggest but first I'll await some
    response from some intelligent reader.

    This experiment seems very strange. I admit I just heard about Bates
    today and have little experience with vision topics, but I am just now
    developing myopia due to computer use. I thought "what the hell", I'll
    try this thing. Details on my experience below.
    I waited about 2 minutes. Impatient, I am. BTW, I'm only very mildly
    myopic (-0.50) and don't use glasses (fear that they might make it worse,
    and I don't really need them yet).
    Used flashlight (4 D cells).
    I stared at it from 12 inches.
    3 seconds.
    Yes, I see an afterimage.
    Yes. Mainly when I blink.
    Okay, print size is about 1.3mm high for lowercase letters. I held it at
    my nearpoint of about 17 cm.
    Actually, the images are present at both near and far points, and mainly
    when I blink.
    They didn't.
    I didn't notice much difference, however today I've been able to see pretty
    clearly at distance -- possibly because I spent a lot of time outside and
    practiced reading distant signs (but this is not scientific). Not sure I'm
    a good candidate for your experiment.

    Read carefully, if the man is honest, he could have understood how to
    discard glasses forever!

    Ok, good candidate to prove that glasses are the most idiotic thing you
    can get!!!
    I don't understand what this flash is! Is it a continuos source or a
    flash for the camera?

    If the afterimages are not present when your eyes are open, you are
    almost cured and don't need to repeat this experiment but practice with
    other methods, we could talk about it later.
    The print is FAR TOO LARGE, you should use at least one half or one
    third more little than that!
    I don't understand if you see the afterimages with open eyes or closed

    You are not a good candidate, I thought you were more myopic.

    Now, please try this new one:

    Take your fine print of 1 mm tall letters.

    Choose one line of text that you like and look at the first letter of
    the first word, at the distance where it seems "more black".

    Close your eyes and see if you can recall the same letter in your
    memory. Count the angles of the letter. Open the eyes and check if your
    count was right.

    Repeat 10 times or more, until the image at closed eyes is the same with
    open eyes.

    Go at the window and look far, to some licence plates on cars.

    When you look far, just remember the letter you had memorized at the
    near point and don't think actually at the licence plates.

    Obviosuly, if you want to recognize distant numbers, you should focus
    your attention on the first letter of the plates and discard all the
    rest of them.

    Close your eyes and remember the distant letter exactly like it is in
    reality, distant and little.

    Open your eyes and remembering the first letter go to the last letter of
    the plate, and so on.

    You should be unable to read the whole letter at once but you should
    read them one by one.

    Report your results.

    You are a good candidate - if you discard your glasses permanently - to
    be cured quickly without glasses.

    Just when you work at the monitor screen, don't think of the letters but
    just go and reach the tiniest pixel you can, that is, the black space
    between pixels.

    If you do this, you won't be prey of the eccentric fixation and you will
    practice continuously the truth about vision, the central fixation
    discovered by Dr. Bates one hundreds year ago in New York.

    I sometimes read the beginning of your posts because I haven't looked
    to see who the author is. Like this one. When you go off into
    meaningless blather, I tend to stop.
    I don't really care what other people think. Why would I?
