The book demonstrates a overwhelming lack of basic education in physiology, optics, or eye disease. Although some statements are accurate, the conclusions drawn are not based on either academic research or common sense. The author has written a flowery text of misinformation and false hope in treatments that have been scientifically disproven for decades as well as recent publications in 2009. I strongly recommend using as a door stop only or for leveling furniture, not for any real medical guidance.
