Martin Sussman is founder and President of the Cambridge Institute for Better Vision. He founded the Cambridge Institute in 1976 by offering the EYECLASSES Vision Seminar, a weekend vision training that he still facilitates.
Since then he has presented more than 500 lectures, seminars and workshops.
He is author The Program for Better Vision book and audio course, co-developer of The Read Without Glasses Method, co-author of Total Health at the Computer (with Dr. Ernest Loewenstein and Howard Sann) and audio-author of numerous additional audio programs, including the ADVANCED Program for Better Vision.
Called "a real pro" by NBC Today and "an expert" by CNN News, Mr. Sussman has appeared on radio and TV over 50 times. His appearance on CNN made "broadcast history": It was the first instance that a segment from "News from the World of Medicine" was re-broadcast.
Mr. Sussman, not an optometrist or an ophthalmologist, is a natural vision care expert. He goes beyond the medical and mechanical models of vision, believing instead that vision is profoundly affected by the mind, body, emotions and spirit.
He holds a B.A. in psychology from Rutgers University.
"I know from personal experience that you can surprise yourself - and your eye doctor - when you do some very simple things to take charge of your own vision.
"Whatever the particular problems are that you have, you can find natural, safe and effective solutions and see better than you do today.
"I first became interested in improving my vision at 13 when my father gave me the book, Better Eyesight Without Glasses by Dr. William Bates. I had already been wearing glasses since I was nine and didn't like them, so I was willing to give it a try.
"My first experiment with better vision didn't last very long. I gave up on the exercises from the book and I was soon back to getting stronger and stronger glasses.
"When I was 26, I was ready to begin a more in-depth exploration of my vision. A major turning point came when I was Palming, trying to relax my eyes. I had done this exercise many times before with no apparent immediate success, but this time was different. Before I took by hands from my eyes, I suddenly felt and knew - with complete inner certainty - that I could see. When I opened my eyes, everything was clear, I really could see!
"This spell, or flash, of completely clear vision lasted for nearly 3 minutes. Though it faded and my old way of seeing at that time returned, this experience showed me that there was nothing wrong with my eyes. I really didn't even need to improve my vision, I just needed to re-awaken my ability to see and allow it to re-emerge.
"I continued to explore ways to encourage this re-awakening and I continued to see better and better.
"In 1977 I created EYECLASSES, a weekend vision seminar. From 1977 to 1986, I traveled throughout the United States and Canada, teaching the thousands of people who participated in EYECLASSES and learning what worked best to help them gain the most changes. I was refining what I knew had helped me and molding it into a comprehensive system that was helping others.
"In 1985, I distilled the essence of the seminar into The Program for Better Vision, a comprehensive home-study system using audiotapes, charts and instructional materials that has been used by tens of thousands of people around the world.
"Over the years, more than 250,000 people have asked the Cambridge Institute for Better Vision for help. I've appeared on numerous radio and TV shows discussing natural vision care and computer ergonomics and I've looked everywhere to find the best products you can use for the clarity and health of your eyes.
"Now the Cambridge Institute offers natural solutions for all kinds of vision problems.
"Regaining my own vision and sharing what I have learned with others continues to inspire me and bring me great joy.
"Let me know how I can help you start seeing better today!"
