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.Read more ›
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.
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 supplements 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.
Update 2016: Six months ago I had an annual checkup at the VA. When they tested my eyes they were very surprised to find my vision 20/20, tp paraphrase what I was told,, it was refreshing and unusual for them to "see" this! Still I can also read the extreme;y small fonts with no change since I wrote this review 6 years ago.
