KIRKUS REVIEW

If you follow, or wish to follow, the Bates method of improving your vision, this book offers considerably more technical guidance than did Huxley's rather inspirational The Art of Seeing, and more recently Ralph MacFadyen's See Without Glasses (Random House-1948). The Bates method, which is educational- not medical, and which is predicated on the belief that good or bad eyesight is not structural- or physical, but determined by relaxation and developed by training, is still a controversial one. Here, following an explanation of the structure and function of the eyes, are certain aspects of vision; ""central fixation"" and light; distance, and close vision; aging eyes and the eyes of babies and children; color blindness; and with each weakness, there is an extensive outline of the drills to be used in order that normal sight may be attained and maintained... The presentation here, and the evidence, carries a certain conviction even if it will not find credence in many circles.
