A great introduction to the Basic Principles of Natural Vision Improvement: we use a combination of gentle movement exercises, visual games, and relaxation techniques. You’ll learn the essential habits to support better eyesight. Gain an understanding of the Bates Fundamentals, including techniques to:

  • Reduce eyestrain and dry eyes
  • Relax vision while driving, working, and sitting at the computer
  • Improve breathing for stress reduction
  • Expand peripheral awareness
  • Enhance clarity of vision

The Fundamentals are useful for everyone. It’s my belief that if more schoolchildren were practicing the Bates Fundamentals from an early age, the epidemic of adults with poor eyesight would be a thing of the past. For people with heavy computer workloads: simple techniques used while working and during short breaks throughout the day, can make all the difference in alleviating headaches, eyestrain, and in improving clarity.
