    I was actually going to try the diet and some exercises actually. I am going to see my optometrist sometime soon and I can probably ask some questions from her.

    Post Re: Glasses

    Have there been any scientific studies whose results support the theories of Dr. Bates (in the Klassen article above)? My father was a product of the "no glasses" theory. When he was young, his mother took him to eye doctors who would patch his good eye, have him do various "exercizes" on his bad eye, etc. (The idea behaind patching the good eye is to force the bad eye to work correctly.) In the end, he is legally blind in his left eye. What vision he had was not improved but was taken away. His right eyes has very poor vision that requires glasses for correction. His left lense in his glasses is nothing more than clear glass and has been for almost his entire life. For those who do not know what legally blind is, basically, he can only see some gradiants of light and dark, but no image. To date, there is no corrective surgery that can restore his vision in his left eye. When he was in the military, he was almost given a medical discharge several times for his eyes. Finally, several years after he became an officer in the Air Force, they sent him to an Army doctor to be evaluated to determine if he would be released or not. The doctor looked at him and basically said, "I don't have a problem with your eyes. Do you?" My father said that he had no problem either, and the doctor signed a permanent waiver in his records for his eye sight. My father's eye sight has no impact on his cognitive abilities-- he is highly intelligent, and the quickest person I have met at performing math equations in his head. Because of his ability to see out of only one eye, he has good aiming abilities with guns and has been awarded a marksman award while in the military. He is an avid golfer, quite good, and loves running (he has ran in a marathons and various smaller races.). His eyes sight has had no negative impact on his life. There is not way of knowing if he had been treated differently as a child if he still would have lost his vision.

    Ideally I should probably simply get laser eye surgery. Yet Lutein sounds cheaper.

    The vision after eye laser surgery procedures is not so good in quality as using glasses.Laser surgery causes ''starlights'', halo, glare, vitreous floaters and sometimes diplopia, the called high-order aberrations..that cant be solved by glasses.And it´s not so secure... can cause retinal detatchment

    Surely the benefit of not wearing glasses outweighs possible night time glare, which will not occur for everyone.

    Sure, there are disasters. But many many more people will have had the treatment - LASIK or PRK (I think it's called) - and are liberated by it. I wouldn't discourage someone from exploring it themselves.

    If you don´t mind with low QUALITY of vision ( besides high quantity...), it can be a good idea.High order aberrations occurs always.
