Vision for Life, Revised Edition: Ten Steps to Natural Eyesight Improvement Paperback – May 3, 2016
Enhance your purchase
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 seventeen, 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 forty 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 reader 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.

“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
“This book isn’t just another useful handbook for those who want to prevent vision problems or already have a condition; it is also an injection of hope.”―Sônia Cristina Tinós Carrocine, instructor of Meir Schneider’s Self-Healing Method
“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
“Meir’s method is effective as a complementary physical therapy for the eyes.”―Emília Ritsuko Yasuoka Assad, ophthalmologist and acupuncturist
“Working with my patients has veriﬁed that many sight problems get better and heal by taking up the right habits. Meir presents us with a complete guide to do so. He helps us to regain our trust in the power we have over our vision and our lives. As he says in the book, ‘We all can take the time. We just have to decide that we are worth the time and that the process is worth our while.’”
―Amelia Salvador, ophthalmologist, Spain
“It is wonderful how each new book by Meir Schneider provokes us to incorporate more and more of the self-healing principles into our lives.”—Laercio Motoryn, MD, ophthalmologist and homeopath
“I had the pleasure to meet Meir Schneider and use his method when I was finishing my apprenticeship to become a Bachelor of Optometry in 2005. His holistic approach toward visual dysfunctions changed me forever as a professional. His concepts remain present in my appointments, therapies, and lens prescriptions. Meir’s work invites us to naturally preserve our organism and to practice healthier visual habits in this very technological world.”—Fernando Nassif, optometrist with specialization in orthoptics and visual therapy
“The knowledge and application of the Self-Healing Method was very important to improve my practice as an ophthalmologist. The results attained by my patients and with my own vision are proof of the importance of the union of traditional medicine with complementary therapies. I thank Meir for being such a marvelous instrument for my personal and professional improvement.”—Ana Cecilia Gois Franco, ophthalmologist and anterior segment surgeon and naturopath, São Paulo, Brazil

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But I was looking for something more direct. I liked the book, but I just wish at the end there was a summary of all the techniques and a straightforward methodology for them.
But instead, I am going to have to go thru and create my own summary. The techniques we are told to use he talked about them within stories most of the time, so the direct steps were not right next to each other. I found myself highlighting sentences here and there all over the place trying to capture the actual required steps of the technique.
If anyone has the same problem as me, then I will share my summary that I create with you. To save me emailing out my simple summary to everyone look for the link in the comments section that I left. It took me some time and effort to create this summary. the techniques are stuck all in the middle of STORIES!
Overall the book is good though, don't get me wrong.
There definitely needs to be like a "recipe" book of Eye Exercises created to COMPLIMENT this book, NOT replace it. Because without this book I wouldnt even a) know the techniques or b) understand why I would do them.
I hope this helps. And if you want to save your own time and effort then just go get the summary I've made (see the website I mentioned earlier)
Learning about a man who was born legally blind but who taught himself to see was really something I had to look for, so I borrowed this book from my local library.
It was great, so great that I bought it before I had to return it.
Really impressive, great methods, easy to apply and mostly very interesting.
Last but not least, it really works!
Beyond Bates, very well explained, it lets you know why exercises, practices and lifestyle are useful.
And, once again, it works!

I have tried some of the exercises; too early for definite results yet; but it's totally logical and I'm sure my vision will improve; nothing to lose. Well worth buying for its insightfulness
