But I was looking for something more direct. I liked the book, but I just wish at the end there was a summary of all the techniques and a straightforward methodology for them.
But instead, I am going to have to go thru and create my own summary. The techniques we are told to use he talked about them within stories most of the time, so the direct steps were not right next to each other. I found myself highlighting sentences here and there all over the place trying to capture the actual required steps of the technique.
If anyone has the same problem as me, then I will share my summary that I create with you. To save me emailing out my simple summary to everyone look for the link in the comments section that I left. It took me some time and effort to create this summary. the techniques are stuck all in the middle of STORIES!
Overall the book is good though, don't get me wrong.
There definitely needs to be like a "recipe" book of Eye Exercises created to COMPLIMENT this book, NOT replace it. Because without this book I wouldnt even a) know the techniques or b) understand why I would do them.
I hope this helps. And if you want to save your own time and effort then just go get the summary I've made (see the website I mentioned earlier)
The book covers three primary goals, one is the author's rise from childhood near-blindness, two is the recounting of the Bates excercises along with new interesting Schneider excercises. The third goal is helping those with actual disease or destruction within their eyes.
I found it best to read the book once and then re-read the excercises part.
The one subject that is only lightly mentioned, but that I think is extremely critical, is that glasses only take a short time to become life-long crutches. It doesn't matter how many years I have not worn perscription glasses (or reading glasses), I still have deep mental pulls to 'make sure to bring the glasses' 'do I have the glasses?' 'can I see (whatever) without the glasses?'. It is a sad crime when little children are fitted with glasses, they will spend the rest of their life with neurotic thought processes surrounding eyeglasses and their eyes.
If any of my ramblings here strike any chords within you, I would suggest you continue your studies on this rarely discussed 'science' of natural eyesight maintenance by picking up Meir's book and applying the exercises to your everyday life. It is natural and easy to add these to whatever you do.
