Bates Method Overview
Imagine going through your day seeing clearly without glasses or surgery. Many thousands of people have reduced their prescription or stopped wearing glasses altogether using natural methods. Nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatism, reading glasses, and other conditions can be helped.
