The Program for Better Vision

By Martin Sussman

The Program for Better Vision is a powerfully effective combination of eye exercises, muscle control techniques, brain/eye coordination and complete body, mind and eye relaxation.

Many people - perhaps even you - are skeptical that it's possible to see better without glasses or contacts. Much of this skepticism is rooted in misunderstanding.

There are five commonly held beliefs that lead people to think that eyesight cannot be improved. That's why I call them myths - they're not truthful, and they don't accurately represent what's going on in your eyes.

Simply dispelling these myths won't improve your vision, but once you change your mind about your eyes, you'll be willing to put the full power of The Program for Better Vision to work for you.

Eye Muscles Weak?
Right at the top of the list of the 5 Vision Myths is the one that says that poor vision is caused by weak eye muscles. Somehow, as this myth goes, eye muscles get weak and the weaker they get, the stronger your glasses - and the worse your vision.

In fact, the opposite is actually true: Whether you have perfect vision or lousy sight, your eye muscles are plenty strong enough for you to see clearly.

As noted eye doctor Dr Richard Kavner says in his groundbreaking book, Total Vision, "...we know that each eye muscle has at least 50 to 100 times the strength it needs."

There are six muscles that surround and move your eyes. They move your eyes up, down, to the right and to the left. When you look at something up close, they turn the eyes in (converge) and when you look at a distant object, they turn the eyes out (diverge).

Tense, Stiff and Rigid?
Tension in these muscles causes eye movements to become more rigid and less flexible, preventing them from moving in a natural, fluid manner. Instead, their movements become stiff, tense and restricted.

Over time, this tension, rigidity and inflexibility build up, and limited visual patterns and vision habits get established, effecting how clearly you can see.

But the primary source of the problem is the underlying patterns and habits - how the eye muscles are used over time.

The eyes - just like any other part of your body - can be retrained to function with new, more effective patterns. As this retraining occurs, the eye muscles become more flexible, they gain better tone and they work together in a more fluid, coordinated manner.

Want to let go of some of the tension that's in your eye muscles? Try This Now

Here's an ancient yoga exercise that you'll also find in The Program for Better Vision :

1. Close your eyes, relax your eyelids, forehead and face. Keep your neck and head still. Breathe easily and regularly.

2. Imagine you're facing a clock, with your nose at its center. As you stretch your eyes all the way up, you can just barely see the number 12 at the top of this imaginary clock. (Remember, your eyes are closed.)

3. Starting at the number 12, rotate your eyes clockwise in a circular motion, around the clock. Stretch your eyes as you rotate them, but don't strain or force the movements.

4. Repeat for 10-20 clockwise circles.

5. Change direction and make 10-20 circles in a counter-clockwise direction.

Most people carry at least some tension and rigidity in these muscles. Here's how you can tell:

1. Your eyes unconsciously jump out of your control.
2. Sections of rotation where the movements will feel stiffer, more tense or stuck.
3. Holding your breath is a sign of tension. Remember to breathe!

Where in the movements did your muscles tense up? When did they jump out of control? What parts of the movements were not smooth?

With practice, you'll be able to make all parts of the circular movement smooth and easy.

In addition to the basic Eye Stretches, in The Program for Better Vision, you'll also learn powerful variations and ways to use it to improve specific problems, like nearsightedness and astigmatism.
