Many write and talk about the Bates method of eyesight training to produce vision improvement.
I do not agree with the rituals and procedures that William H. Bates prescribes to restore one's eyesight.

Those who follow the Bates method to improve their eyesight, better their vision, not because of the Bates method, but because they pay attention to their eyesight improvement.
You write, "Bates developed and taught people good vision habits, which were to move their heads and centralize(by imaging, edging and brushing with a nose feather), remembering to breathe fully and to constantly blink."

If one wants to improve one's eyesight, one should proprioceptively meditate on one's eyes, one should progressively put stressful resistrance on the eyes while looking at the external environment objects.

Bates suggested doing Palming, Sunning and Blinking to help the eyes. Bates contends that most visual defects are the result of mental strain and staring. Bates taught his students to develop new habits of relaxed vision, without the distortions caused by strain and staring. Bates contended that his students could then regain clear sight by releaving tension and centralization. Bates contended that his students also developed their powers of inner vision through visualization.

Palming is a method for resting one's eyes in "perfect blackness", a darkness free of all visual demands.

This is done by placing one's palms over one's closed yese and seeing the blackness before me.
Sunning is done by closing one's eyes, facing the sun and slowly moving one's head from left to right and back again.

Blinking is done by deliberately blinking one's eyes dozens of times while one gently turns one's head from left to right and back again.

To improve one's eyesight, one should progressively exercise one's eyes, every moment one can.
One can use the "Snellen Charts" to progressively exercise one's eyes.

The Snellen Charts were worked out by a Doctor Opthamologist named Herman Snellen in 1862.
It is the rule to make the tests at not less than 20 feet. To have normal eyesight, one should be able to read with either of one's eyes, the line on the Snellen Chart marked 20 feet. If you can only read the lines above 20 feet then your eyesight is abnormal. One should progressively exercise one's eyes by reading the lines above 20 feet line.

Then progressively practice reading till you can read 20 feet line. Eventually your eyesight will normalize. You can restore your eyesight by progrioceptively meditating on your eyes every time you can.
To meditate, one should close one's eyes and keep one's eyes closed. One should concentrate on, focus one's attention to, think on, be still and feel one's eyes.
Whatever eye problem one has the God within will produce symptoms upon which one should concentrate, keep one's mind on, such as pain, distress, etc., till they completely disappear.
This meditation on one's eyes will help one correct all kinds of eye defects, such as macular degeneration, keratconies, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, burned cornea, cataract, retinitis pigmentosa, iritis, myopia, presbyopis, dry eyes, watery eyes, flashes, floaters, blindness, double vision, blepharitis, stye, exopthalmos, enophthalmos, conjunctivitis, keratitis, papilledema, astigmatism, retinal detachment, aveites, corneal trauma, corneal ulcer, etc.I have helped thousands of people and animals, world-wide, heal themselves of all kinds of "hopeless" eyesight problems and health problems, physical, mental and spiritual, completely and permanently, via the Internet.
