The author of
this book, website; www.cleareyesight-batesmethod.info
has taken 5 Natural Eyesight Improvement Courses from Bates
Teachers in 1996, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2010.
I began study, use of the
Bates Method in 1974, age 17.
1st book I studied was 'The Art Of Seeing' by Aldous Huxley found
in a used bookstore on Rt. 9/148 intersection, end of the common
in Brookfield, Massachusetts.
Age 40, cured presbyopia.
Studied many Natural Eyesight (Vision) Improvement books, Dr.
Bates Better Eyesight Magazines, (11 years, 132 Issues, 2400+
Pages), his book Perfect Sight Without Glasses, Medical Articles,
all teachers, author's books listed on the website
Bates Method History page;
other pages of the website and a variety of books related to
Natural Eyesight Improvement; Natural Heath Cures, Physical
Therapy, Movement, Posture, EFT, Tai Chi, Acupressure, Color
Treatment, Relaxation Methods, Robert Monroe books, tapes;
Left-Right Brain Hemisphere Synchronization and other skills,
Basic Nutrition. I stay informed of the best original and modern
up to date training. It's all free in the e-books and on the
website. Completed part of an optician course from Penn Foster to
be able to communicate with students as they work with their eye
doctor to stop use of eyeglasses. Some people need to reduce their
prescription strength ‘weaker and weaker’ in stages in order to
drive, work... legal and safe;
Now age 57 and continue to see clear, even after many eye,
vision, health problems due to neck, spine injuries that were
caused by a dishonest chiropractor. (I am against most
chiropractic treatment because even the best honest, helpful
doctor-technique can cause injury. It's risky.)
After years of research, use and study of the Bates Method I have
learned everything there is to know to keep my eyesight clear. I
continually learn more from others, study, keeping up on new
ideas. I like optometry, ophthalmology books, deep contemplation
of the eyes-vision, brain's mechanics, chemistry, light focus, ect...
It's fascinating. The eyes are part of the brain. There is spirit,
energy and light-color energy moving in and through the eyes,
brain, body. I learn a lot from the
people I teach. They teach me! Many minds are better than one. I
have learned much by communicating with, teaching, observing the
vision improvement process of different people on the Bates Method
Internet forums, groups since 2007. After May, 2014 I rarely
attend these groups due to them being taken over by people who
sell eyeglasses, lasik and other eye surgery, unnatural harmful
eyesight methods, drugs, other products and people that sell high
priced books, hourly training. They are very aggressive, forcing
Natural Eyesight Improvement teachers off the forums,
especially if you teach for free and provide Dr. Bates entire
collection of Better Eyesight Magazine and his books.In 2014 I was banned, blocked from a few popular Bates
Method forums (where I posted since 2007, 1500 posts helping
people see clear) because I spoke up about members advising,
selling lasik eye surgery, eyeglasses, other unnatural-harmful
methods such as the cataract producing plus lens method, drugs and
revealed the identity of 3 people (competing teachers, authors)
who hack Natural Vision teacher's computers, bookstores and are a
threat to their schools, safety. Obviously they are no longer true
Bates Method Forums. I learned a lot from the old time members
before the trolls and greed for money took it over. My posts
might be deleted, altered by the forum, group owners without mypermission. I now teach solely
by phone, GoogleHangouts, Skype, some Facebook and our
Places where people are kind, honest, show their true face and
identity. Members can block anyone they prefer not to communicate
with. It's much more effective teaching on a video chat. Very
relaxed, positive atmosphere
for both teachers and students. You learn easier, faster.
Some of the people I trained have become teachers, they cured
their friends, family.
Thank you for preserving the Bates Method. Pass the torch!

1st Class with a Real Live
teacher!Carrie Anderson - Great!
With Thomas Quackenbush in
San Francisco, CA, 1999!
Learned that vision can be much clearer than 20/20, close and far!
(Use Centralization. Also known as
Shifting.) Saw local homeless man 5 blocks away from top
of Grand Avenue in So. San Francisco. Saw crystal clear fine
details of his face, beard...
Also quickly cured
presbyopia that occurred at age 40.
Before and again during Thomas Quackenbush's class I read,
studied his book; 'Relearning to See-Improve Your Eyesight Naturally!'
I later bought, studied his 2nd book; 'Better Eyesight - The
Complete Magazines of William H. Bates' (Ophthalmologist Bates).
After comparing many teachers I now prefer Thomas Quackenbush's
training. He teaches only natural, healthy practices, the true
Bates Method. His
books are like college textbooks that work well with his classand at home.
Certificates from three teachers, schools
I have taken courses from
previously posted here have been removed from the website and books
due to them selling unnatural methods, things I disagree with. They
have a lot of good training but then they ruin it by directing the
student in the wrong way, into unnatural practices that are unhealthy
for the eyes, vision. So I placed them in a PDF for people that
want to see my full training and why I left some teachers as my
knowledge, experience grew. Contains 5 certificates,the
best-truly natural teachers and the unnatural teachers, methods to
avoid, things they teach that is wrong, harmful. I don’t want to
‘bite the hands that taught me' so their certificates and names are
removed from public view. The PDF
is free via e-mail on request;
A list of more teachers I've taken
courses from, books I have studied is listed on the
Bates MethodHistory, Teachers, Books
page in this book and on the website;
Here’s a bit of information about my three other teachers;
Home Study Course;(name and certificate picture removed)
This course was taken in April, 1997. A few of the things in this
teacher’s course (name and
certificate picture removed) I strongly disagree with;
advertising the unhealthy plus lens
eyeglass method, some of their unnatural behavioral optometrists,orthokeratology (ortho-k),
use of auto-stereograms 'artificial 3-D-Magic Eyes' (causes
crossed-wandering eyes, double vision, astigmatism) and some of their
herbs, supplements and other products.
The Optometric Extension Program they are affiliated with uses
unnatural methods including the harmful cataract, detached retina
producing plus lens method. Avoid these unnatural methods.
70% of the course was beneficial, worth learning. Shifting, looking
close and far, tracing and other simple easy practices they teach
improve the vision. See
my website, books to learn what is true healthy Natural Eyesight
Improvement and what is unnatural, causes impaired eyesight.
2009 - Completed 2 Home Study, Student DVD and Book Natural Vision
Improvement Courses From(names and 2
certificates picture removed.)
I learned some beneficial things from these two popular eyesight
courses, but unfortunately they also teach, sell unnatural methods,
products; colored lenses, pinhole glasses without warning of the side
effects, blocking the eyes central field, methods that cause muscle
tension and other destructive advice, practice. One charges over
$5000.00 dollars for multi levels of unnecessary and false training.
He hides Dr. Bates books, medical articles and magazines. He refuses
to help the blind unless they pay ‘bigtime money’. I listed the
methods, products, teachers to avoid so students can detect unnatural
teachers. Read the entire experience, see list of original and modern
teachers on the
website page and chapter in this book.
years of study, application I disagree with some teacher's methods.
Most are effective but many are not. Example; I disagree with parts
of the 2009 course teacher’s training; His blocking of the eyes’
central field with a black paper while using only the peripheral
field to see with. This is directly against Ophthalmologist Bates #1
practice of central-fixation and normal eye shifting ‘movement’ which
is essential for clear eyesight. The unnatural teacher teaches some
movement-muscle practices wrong. His specialty is supposed to be
movement and muscle relaxation, posture but he teaches things that
impair these functions. His
palming hands position is positioned with the hands straight up, side
by side in a way that causes neck and shoulder tension and
prevents brain hemisphere integration and activation of a
chi-charka energy center. The hands should be crossed on the forehead
for all benefits. Try it and feel the difference;
I like one of the teacher’s physical movement practices which gave me
the idea to search for alternative ways to heal a neck-spine injury
but; it took many other physical therapists, doctors that
taught me different methods and better movements.
I don't like teachers that alter Dr. Bates Method, making it
unnatural in order to create their own method so it attracts
attention, can be mass marketed, sold for a very high price by the
hour lessons, expensive seminars, endless $300.00 to $5000.00+ levels
as they hide the true, easy Bates Method and teach things that are
ineffective and harmful. Students beware and avoid them.
I disagree with the use of pinhole glasses and do not like teachers
that sell them without warning of the side effects, without teaching
healthy alternatives. I don't like teachers that sell colored eye
goggles. This imbalances the sun's light spectrum. It turns healthy
full spectrum light into partial unhealthy light that imbalances the
visual system, brain. It impairs the eye, iris, lens and retina’s
health. True color, light therapy does not involve wearing colored
eyeglasses. See the true method here; http://cleareyesight-batesmethod.info/id59.htmland

learned from more teachers. I don’t list them because many have
become corrupt, are selling laser cornea and other harmful eye
surgeries, dangerous eye-vision experimental surgery, treatments and
other unnatural products, methods. Three competing teachers asked me
to charge a high price for my e-books and the videos; $175.00. They
tried to prevent free public access to the books, Bates magazines,
videos. After I refused to charge money and then set all the e-books
for free download; the teachers became abusive, a lot of angry
comments in emails and online.
There's more unnatural methods to avoid.
Read entire information on the different types of teachers, authors,
books - the good and the bad.
Read 2 Warnings, Directions
PDF’s listing all the unnatural methods and eyeglasses to avoid.
Study this so you can detect a false teacher. See the top of this
Our new and old videos on YouTube show how all eyeglasses, plus and
minus lens, astigmatism lens, contacts, prisms harm the eyes,
There are many Bates teachers that provide perfect, true training.
They do not have schools, books. They teach for free on-line, in
person. Their contact address is are available on request.
For true Natural Eyesight Improvement; I prefer to stay solely with
Ophthalmologist Bates original training from his book 'Perfect Sight
Without Glasses', his 'Better Eyesight Magazine',
(my favorite teacher), his books and a few other teachers that stay
with the authentic, natural, safe Bates Method. Thomas Quackenbush is
the best. I like, agree with, am confident in his way of training. I
can send people to him knowing they will be in a safe place.
like my teacher's teacher Janet Goodrich and her daughter Carina.
Excellent! Janet cured her eye-vision conditions naturally; she had a
very strong astigmatism prescription around -5
with -6 myopia and strabismus. Took her 2 ½ years to cure them all,
see clear, pass her driving test without glasses.
Janet and Carina have taught Natural Vision Improvement in their
school for many years, helped people eliminate a variety of
eye-vision problems. Also teaches correction of children’s vision,
relaxation, positive thoughts, emotions, movement, games, brain
hemisphere balancing, color and other techniques. (I do not advise
their auto-stereogram magic-eyes ‘merging
circles’ type of artificial fusion. It’s not Dr. Bates method. I
prefer these auto-stereograms to be applied only by an eye doctor,
Behavioral Optometry. Try the
Bates Method first.) Everything else, including their many
practices in the books are great. I have studied all the Goodrich
books. They improved my teaching skills and keep my eyesight clear.
Other teachers I like, have studied their books are from the old days; Dr. Bates, Emily C. Lierman/Bates, Optometrist Harold M. Peppard, Dr. Emery C. Ingham
and her mother-a doctor that trained directly with Dr. Bates; Dr.
Clara Ingham. C. S Price, Margaret Corbett, Aldous Huxley, Clara
Dr. R. Ruiz Arnau, M.D
and other original teachers. Many that were trained in person by
Dr. Bates are listed in his Better Eyesight Magazine. A lot of school
teachers, doctors applied the method with success. Click Here for a PDF listing teachers trained directly
by Dr. Bates and endorsed by him as teachers. This is original
from the magazine. There probably are more people trained,
certified that are not listed in the magazine.
I like teachers that describe the benefits of sunlight, color
treatment, left and right brain hemisphere activation,
integration, EFT and other practices. Three of the best original
Book and Magazine - Emily
C. Lierman - Dr.
Harold M. Peppard
Dr. Bates, Emily Lierman (A Bates) and Dr. Peppard worked together in
New York City.

My Pen Name
A famous poet is named Mary Oliver. So I do not use
this name to publish books.
One of my favorite poems by her is about her father; ‘A Visitor’.
See her poems on this website;
I chose the pen name Clark Night when I was a young kid playing
secret agent with my five cousins and neighbors on Kimball Street
in Brookfield, Massachusetts. Mike was the leader. I was one of
our favorite TV shows and songs were; The Man From Uncle, Secret
Agent Man, The Lone Ranger, Batman and Hogan's Heroes. We had a
hideout ‘office’ underground in the cellar. We would climb up the
old stone/brick wall through a hole in the top of the wall and
jump down into the other end of the cellar. This was our secret
escape route. I had a pet spider named speedy. We would crawl
through the drain pipe that ran underground where the brook
flowed from the frog pond in the woods, under the street, through
a tall grass field, down the waterfall and into the swamp. We
would hide in there safe and secure, spy on the neighbors and
plan our next adventure. We raced homemade boats down the brook.
Ate wild wine and blue berries. We had hideouts in the woods,
trees and about town. We were always happy, laughing, often about
some mischief we had done or were planning. I remember when my
cousin Tom, with help from Mike printed up a bunch of
Secret Agents for Hire
cards with their parent’s phone number on them. Tom placed them
on all the neighbors’ front doors. All night long my aunt was
getting phone calls from people asking about the card! We would
steal food, candy. One night when we were throwing dirt bombs at
cars from our spruce tree hideouts, a man circled back and
dragged Tom out of a tree, brought him into the house and forced
him to confess to Mom. There was a lot of action that night! In
fear, one of the girls jumped down the tree face to face with the
man! Many happy memories
from childhood, remembered clear, in color, motion keeps the
memory, imagination strong, mind-emotions positive and eyesight
