I read this book with skepticism, I did the exercises with skepticism, and I watched my prescription go from -2.25 to -1.25 in three months. Not bad for a method that "doesn't work" according to the people who sell me glasses, contacts and laser surgery. I highly recommend anyone considering laser surgery to atleast check this out first. Someone please republish this book.

This really works!

I read this book 10 years ago and I freaked out my eye doctor when I wnet back a year later and went from a -2.25 in each eye to a -0.75 in each eye. Not perfect, but close to it. He asked what happened and I told him about the book. He said that the shape of my eye had changed and was wondering where I found the book. I told him a used book store, because it was not republished at the time. I am glad it is now. You have to have patience, but it really does work! Good Luck!

Anyone losing eyesight should read this book.

This account of Huxley's personal experience with the Bates method is enjoyable, and useful. Unlike a hoax, the method doesn't require any leap of faith or that you wear a pyramid on your head. You have to work, reflect and learn. This is perhaps why the method isn't successful with everyone. It is far easier to pay for a pair of glasses. My advice: If you get your hands on this book, read it.

Huxley was not conned, the bates method saved his sight

Huxley used the bates method to save his failing eyesight. The Bates method is not a hoax. I have used it for 20 years and continue to receive many benefits. Huxley was not selling a hoax, he was sharing the truth with the public.

No more glasses on my face.

A number of years ago, when I had a restricted license (requiring glasses); I read Mr. Huxleys book on the recommendation of a friend. After about a year of doing several of the exercises I was able to pass the motor vehicle eye exam and throw my glasses away. I lent the book to someone who needed it and it disappeared, now I am looking for another copy. As my eyes change with age I need to review it
