Book Description

This revolutionary new look at vision will broaden your understanding of how you see and how you can see without your glasses or contact lenses. 
   Take Off Your Glasses and See shows you how to free yourself from the crutch of prescription lenses, to build your self-confidence and awareness, and to open up your inner and outer vision in order to see more clearly.
   Jacob Liberman, an internationally recognized authority on holistic vision care, explains how most vision problems are the result of an unconscious decision to "close your eyes" to emotional discomfort or pain, and how increasingly powerful corrective lenses only encourage eyesight to withdraw even further. By removing lenses and practicing breath- and movement-awareness techniques to shift your perception, you can reintegrate the original disruption in the mind/body system. Dr. Liberman’s approach can help you join the thousands who have escaped from the self-defeating cycle of poor vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive experience... August 5, 2005
First off I will simply say that this is, in my experience, an excellent book on the topic of the deeper nature of eye-sight and why (in many cases) it deteriorates.

In order to help you, the reader of this review, gain a little insight into the nature of the main emphasis of this book I wish to share with you a couple of personal experiences.

I was prescribed reading glasses when I was 15. At that time I intuitively felt into "why do people end up with deteriorated eyesight?" -- why is my eye-sight failing?. Intuitively I knew that in most instances it was literally the result of "not wanting to see" something within my world and/or within myself. Within less than six months I no longer needed my glasses and now can't wear them (as they no longer "correct" my vision, but distort it).

About 8 years ago I met a friend of mine when she was 22. She had thick glasses that she had to wear at all times if she was to see much in her world. She'd had them since age 6. They got stronger and stronger every few years. She was convinced (like most people) that this was "normal" and she'd have these for the rest of her life. In talking to her about matters of health and healing, I mentioned that I felt her challenged eye-sight was the result of her not wishing to see something from her childhood. I felt it was likely related to her father (who had walked out on her family when she was young). (Perhaps I could qualify that comment by saying that, among other things, I work as an intuitive healer).

She thought this idea to be quite ridiculous. A few days later we went to a 2nd hand book store. I found in there the book I am now reviewing. After flicking through it I quickly recognised that Liberman had very similar views on eyesight to myself.

The book reiterated other eye exercises and mental insights I had read previously, but there cannot be enough books out there on this subject. I practiced the techniques, and stopped my vision from getting worse. My prescription was -7.50 in both eyes, and was getting worse at about -.25 every year or so. Not only did I stop my eyes from getting worse, I reversed them, and I am now at a -7.25 prescription. I have plateaued at this level, but must admit, I have not been exercising my eyes as vigorously as when I first started. I have had problems finding an eye doctor that supports this method of treatment. In fact, when my presciption went down and I told him what I had been doing, he totally blew me off, and told me that the previous doctor must have examined my eyes wrong and given me too strong of a prescription.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take Off Your Glasses and See July 11, 2000
I really liked this book. He talks about "open focus" where one can look at the world more softly and openly. He also emphasizes the importance of good breathing. When I am stressed, my breath is very shallow, and now that he's brought it to my attention . . . my vision is not as clear. He states that stress is the cause of poor vision, often beginning in the school setting.
It was interesting to learn how optometrists work, basically bumping up your perscription by a quarter diopter each year. And he points out how "blindly" dependant on our glasses we become, like crutches, and how much narrower our vision is with them.
I very much enjoyed his holistic perspective on vision. That vision involves more than the eyeball. I don't know how many people will actually gain 20/20 vision from his book, but it's left me with much food for thought about alternative healing posibilities with regard to poor vision.

I have been into behavioral optometry and natural vision therapy for the last 6 months or so and I have found this book to be excellent in explaining the causitive nature and subsequent corrective techniques for the various eye disorders. I am myopic and have been wearing glasses since I was 14. After 6 months of eye exercises and relaxation techniques I have reduced my prescription by 5 dioptors (from -4.50 to -3.25). I still have a ways to go but this is exhilerating because there is hope that I need not be a visual cripple the rest of my life. For those people that want to rid themselves of their eye crutches, this book is an excellent tool in helping achieve that goal.

5.0 out of 5 stars I approached this book with skepticism September 8, 2010
Ten years ago my optometrist told me using a 'this is the final word on the subject tone' that I was aging and there was nothing I could do to improve my vision other than corrective lens. I believed him. Several months ago a social network friend stated she no longer needs her glasses so I began to research the subject and took action. One of the first questions that Jacob Liberman asks is how is it that the eyes are believed to be the only part of the human body that can not be healed?

Today I don't need glasses, last week I tested 20/20 and I do not need reading glasses. I can't say that all of improvement was due to the methods and insights found in this book since I have been also taking Red Wine Complex suppliments for several months and view 3D stereograms daily. But I have practiced the simple and quick 'open focus', tracing, the Tibetian Wheel and palming exercises found in this book and now have no doubt that vision can be improved.
