Somewhere in our forties, millions of us begin to develop a condition known as presbyopia, an inability to focus sharply for near vision. All of a sudden, our arms do not seem to be long enough to hold a newspaper or book far-enough away so that we can read it. Called "old eye", it is an unavoidable consequence of the aging process. Using a holistic approach, the author provides a four-week program of simple exercises that will overcome this and other conditions of impaired vision and give you complete freedom from reading glasses, except under the most adverse circumstances.

This book is for you if you:
-- have noticed your ability to shift focus becoming sluggish, perhaps even blurring at all distances
-- use weak, moderate, or strong reading glasses, or even bifocals or trifocals
-- have used these glasses for a short time or many years
-- experienced eyestrain, fatigue, or headache when you read, including the screen of that great vision nemesis the computer
-- have other visual conditions such as myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism, cataracts, and glaucoma
-- have excellent near-point vision and want to keep it that way

Lisette Scholl offers a long-forgotten method of healing visual dysfunctions invented by Dr. William H. Bates, a turn-of-the-century New York opthamologist. The Bates Method works not just for nearsightedness and astigmatism, for which it is most famous, but for most other visual conditions, including presbyopia.

28 Days to Reading Without Glasses offers a holistic health and fitness program that could change your life forever. The author's high success rate with presbyopics stems from her integration of the classic Bates Method,self-hypnosis, and yoga, as well as lifestyle changes and "attitude adjustments" about aging and the visual process.
