Publisher's Summary

All parts of the body need exercise for optimal health, and the eyes are no different. Vision for Life presents an approach to eye health for people with 20/20 vision who wish to maintain their perfect vision as well as people who see poorly and would like to improve their eyesight. 

Clients of the Meir Schneider Self-Healing Method experience their own capacity to bring about recovery, reversing the progress of a wide range of degenerative conditions including eye disease. Based in part on the established Bates Method of eyesight improvement and in part on his own professional and personal discoveries, Meir Schneider's pioneering approach has helped thousands of people successfully treat a host of eye problems, including near- and farsightedness, astigmatism, lazy eye, double vision, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, retinitis pigmentosa, and nystagmus. This revised edition includes a new chapter on children's eye health and new research and exercises for specific conditions, i.e., glaucoma and nystagmus, near- and farsightedness. 

Born blind to deaf parents, Schneider underwent a series of painful operations as a young child and was left with 99 percent scar tissue on the lenses of his eyes, resulting in his being declared incurably blind. At the age of 17, he discovered how to improve his vision from less than 1 percent to 55 percent of normal vision with the eye exercises presented in this book. Today Schneider drives a car, reads, and enjoys the benefits of full natural vision. He and his clients prove time and time again how much vision can improve with exercise. His contributions to the field of self-healing are recognized by alternative health practitioners and medical doctors alike. 

In Vision for Life, Schneider shares 40 years of discoveries made on his personal and professional journey. The book details simple but effective techniques to gain great vision such as sunning and palming. Such exercises are not only strengthening but also restorative and deeply relaxing. The listener learns how to reverse developing issues before they cause damage or to remedy existing problems, including pathologies such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and optic nerve neuropathy. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

“In this generous book, Meir Schneider shares the secrets - won through his own movingly documented triumph over near-blindness - of strengthening, rejuvenating, and healing the eyes by activating the body’s own intelligence. A man of vision in every sense, he offers a program of exercises that is both inspiring and eminently practicable.” (Timothy Crouse, author of The Boys on the Bus)

“I have been impressed with the work of Meir Schneider for many years, having personally seen improvements in patients’ vision of those who have worked with him. The ability of the visual system to adapt and regain function is still full of mysteries. Through Meir’s work, we are finding some of those mysteries to be realities.” (August L. Reader III, MD, FACS, clinical professor of ophthalmology, California Pacific Medical Center)

“As an ophthalmologist, I always search for the best way to treat my patients. Based on the Bates Method, self-healing has complemented my practice in those cases where our traditional medicine has its limitations. The best treatment is the one that is directed to the patient’s needs, and the best medicine is the one that uses all knowledge and not only a part of it. Traditional science and complementary medicine are tools that should be used together, focusing on a more holistic health concept.” (Leonardo Verri Paulino, MD, ophthalmologist and anterior segment surgeon at ABC Medical School, Brazil)

great content but one blip

I've checked out several behavioral optometry sources, and this is by far one of the best because of the breadth and depth of its scope.

My only complaint is the glorification of a client who is not demoralized by rape and chooses to keep the resulting baby. These details were not relevant to the case or the book, and may be triggering to readers who feel such perspectives lack empathy: other reactions and choices are totally understandable.

The performance could have used a touch more vocal variety for my liking, but is standard for books of its type (educational).

Loved it!

Excellent book to read and re-read for thorough understanding. Lots of exercises to go through, definitely need to have a physical book with audio book to repeat exercises without making mistakes.
It is great resource for natural vision correction.
