What is the Bates Method?
The method developed by Dr Bates aims at an education of the sight habits through mental relaxation and awareness.
It is a holistic method, which is not based on 'eye gymnastics', but more on unblocking the strain that caused visual issues (short-sightedness, far-sightedness, hypermetropia...).
It can be considered as a kind of yoga for the eyes, meaning by that, a more holistic approach to mental relaxation.
