Who created The Program for Better Vision?
Isn't nearsightedness (myopia) caused by the shape of the eye?
To improve nearsightedness, try the Program for Better Vision.
The best she's seen:
"I have looked over and purchased several different programs and yours is by far the best, most knowledgeable and most comprehensive."
Marianne Carduner, Ft. Lauderdale FL
Passes driver's test in only five weeks:
"Before I started The Program I wore my glasses 14-15 hours every single day. I passed my driver's test without them only five weeks after starting The Program. Now, I never need glasses at all. I feel much more confident and free. It's a great Program!"
Donna Sanders, Havre MT
73 years young and seeing better:
"I am 73 years old and have been wearing glasses since I was 27 - almost 50 years. I've been using The Program for just eight weeks now and already I notice improvement! I can see road signs more easily as well as smaller print on the TV. My peripheral vision is better and colors seem more vibrant and clear. I'm very excited - practice really brings results. The Program makes it easy to get improvement."
Horace Kirk, Ceres CA
Passes driver's test, reads without glasses:
"At 55 years of age, I passed my driver's test without glasses for the first time in 35 years. I no longer need glasses for reading, either. All this in about 6 to 9 months."
Albert Rioux, Jr., Manchester NH
Distance vision is better now:
"I was nearsighted and started wearing glasses when I was 17 years old. After using The Program for Better Vision I can see - without glasses - in the distance much clearer than I every could before.
"When I wake up in the morning my eyesight is crystal clear. It fades a little as the day goes on, but I feel that I have already crossed a major hurdle towards clearer vision. I know that I am in control of my eyesight and I plan on continuing with The Program."
Jeffrey White, Vernon CT
Trifocals are weaker by more than 50%:
"My trifocal prescription was plus 2.25 when I started; now I read much of the time with no glasses, and when I use corrective lenses they are usually plus 1.0. If the light is poor I use plus 1.5. I wore my glasses all the waking hours before, but now only when I read and much of the time not even then. I plan to continue the program until I am completely free of corrective lenses."
Gerald N. Cox, Rapid City SD
Coke-bottle glasses almost completely gone:
"I started wearing glasses when I was 7 or 8 years old and my vision kept deteriorating until I was very nearsighted and wearing coke-bottle glasses. (My prescription was -6.00.) Eye doctors had given up on my vision. One year ago I started using The Program for Better Vision and now I have flashes of perfectly clear vision at times! My current vision without eyeglasses is consistently 20/60 or better. My eye doctor is absolutely astonished and amazed at my improvement. All the exercises have been helpful, particularly the affirmations, and I know I can have absolutely perfect eyesight very soon."
Frances Sgarlatti, Edgewater CO
Astigmatism disappears, nearsightedness improves:
"Even though I haven't been consistent in using The Program for Better Vision, I went back to my eye doctor and he told me that my astigmatism has completely disappeared and that my nearsightedness has improved too! Now, I only use my glasses for distance and for a driver's license restriction, and my eye doctor states that I am very close to getting the restriction removed. I'm so excited about my results that I plan on using The Program more regularly."
Tronnie Brassfield, Plano TX
85-year-old reverses amblyopia and astigmatism:
"I now know the muscles of my eyes as well as the fingers of my hand. I am 85 years old and can focus very well and read for a long time without fatigue. Using The Program for Better Vision, I am recovered from amblyopia and astigmatism."
Aldo Mortera, Boulogne France
Has lower prescription:
"I saw dramatic results. I went down to a lower prescription, which I had been using six years ago. I used to feel a desperation about my vision. Now I feel hope I had never dreamed of. My vision is more relaxed and images are sharper and clearer."
Carlos Escajeda, Fabens TX
More relaxed and more conscious, and aware:
"I like how my eyes feel softer and more relaxed. I am more conscious of relaxing my eyes and my mental state. This is a valuable observation. The Program is comprehensive and well thought out. I'd recommend it!"
Adrian Palmer, Salt Lake City UT
Helps vision by releasing traumatic memories:
"Thanks to your program, my eye muscles, focusing ability, eye coordination, memory, and ability to visualize have been strengthened.
"Due to my strengthened ability to visualize, I had some very strong dreams. These dreams were very important because they revealed to me some events that happened early in my childhood. Due to the traumatic nature of those events, I, without knowing, blocked them from my memory.
"In addition, I'm more relaxed, and my ability to see better has improved greatly. My eye doctor tested my vision and it has improved by 25% in just two months."
D.W., Atlantic City NJ
Reduces use of glasses, holds reading material further away:
"When I first started The Program, I wore my glasses all the time. After the first 8 weeks, I was able to reduce my wearing time to 8 hours a day.
"My vision is improving and my eyes feel so much better. I can now hold the reading material farther away and still see clearly. I feel that if my improvement so far is any indication, I have every reason to continue The Program."
Nita Gause, San Diego CA
Was 20/200, now has clear flashes:

Lenaye Seigel, Chicago IL

Mardelle McClure, Lake Jackson TX
Stimulates mind, improves attitudes:
"I have experienced major improvement in my visual attitude. The Program stimulates the mind, which is the key to everything, not just clear vision. I was impressed with The Program and with the people I spoke to at the Institute."
Lawrence Merkler, Morrisville PA
Grateful for deep healing of painful memories:
"I was pleasantly surprised and very grateful for the depth and scope of this program. Especially the healing techniques involved, even to the healing of memories. Now I can see more clearly for longer periods of time with less strain. I intend to never, never wear glasses again."
Michele Largey, Waltham MA
Headaches, tension and glasses gone:

Donald Drake, Niagara Falls NY
Needs glasses less than before:
"When I first started The Program, I wore my glasses all the time. After the first 8 weeks, I was able to experience periods of clear vision and reduce my wearing time to 5 hours a day. Thank you again - this program is a precious stepping stone for me in my rise to clearer vision."
Claire Morneau, Montreal, Quebec, CANADA
Uses weaker prescription:
"I've worn glasses since age 7. So at first I was frustrated without wearing them, but now I enjoy not wearing glasses. The Program showed me how much more beautiful we all can be and see without glasses. It did help me to get 20/40 glasses, and I'm sure that using weaker lenses had something to do with my success."
Richard Hamre, Basel, Switzerland
Passes driver's test without glasses:
"I don't need glasses anymore. I passed my driver's test without them after only four months!"
Carolyn Zelenka, Topsfield MA
Eyes feel better every week:
"It's hard to believe, but I used to wake up in the morning with tired, tense eyes. Now my eyes feel better every week. I have some tools and techniques to take charge of my vision, and I don't have to passively accept limitations on my eyesight."
Robert Coddington, Eugene OR
Skips exercises, vision improves 100%:
"One year after taking off my glasses (except for driving and movies) I was re-examined by my eye doctor. My vision improved 100% and I wasn't even regular with the exercises."
Harriet Russell, Lenox MA

Stephanie Collins, Las Vegas NV
Has perfect vision now:
"I went from wearing glasses all the time to tested 20/20 vision."
Pat Boll, Hartford CT
"I have been wearing glasses/contacts for over 40 years and wanted to let you know how much my eyes have improved since I have been using your program. My right eye went from -3.75 to -1.75 and my left eye went from -2.50 to -.50.
The exercises are easy enough - I have the beaded line in my bathroom so I can use it almost every morning. The book that came with the system is close at hand which reminds me which exercises I need to do.
Glad I can share with others - follow the instructions because they work! Thanks so much!"
Marilyn Schroeter, Morton IL
Passes driver's test:
"I started losing vision while studying in London, England in 1972. After years of studying, postgraduate studies and eye ware at libraries and microscopes, I had to start using glasses but always practiced to pass the driving tests without glasses successfully. At age 66, last year, I had to renew my driver´s license and I just knew it was going to be impossible this time. However, I tried the Program for Better Vision during 3 months and pass the test successfully. My driver´s license was renewed for the next 5 years and I am looking forward to pass the test in 2015, without glasses again!"
Javier Arriola, Spain
After Only Three Weeks:
"I've started the third week of the Program and am enjoying every aspect of it!
"My vision is undoubtedly clearer than two weeks ago.
"I've stopped wearing the contacts I had become so dependent on; they would be too strong for me now in any case!
"I carry an old weaker pair of glasses with me for use if needed, which is not very often.
"The activities are easy to follow & enjoyable. I've learned more about my eyes & my vision in two weeks than ever before.
"I feel as if I trust my eyes to see what they can, without worrying about what they can't. I'll keep letting you know how things progress in the coming weeks."
David Callard, Surrey, Great Britain
