Bates Method To Overcome Minus Eye?
, want to ask. What is the method for reducing the minus eye. Whether the Bates method has been proven to cure minus eyes. How it works, please explain
The Bates Method is an alternative therapy that claims that visual impairment can be corrected without using tools such as glasses. This method was developed by William Horatio Bates MD (1860-1931).
The effectiveness of the Bates method for visual impairment is still doubted by medical practitioners, especially ophthalmologists. Therefore, the American Academy of Ophthalmology in 2013 stated that natural alternative therapies, including this bates method, could not help existing visual disturbances, either near or far farsightedness, or eye disorders due to illness.
It is also important to know that this method tends to encourage users not to seek medical help, wear eye aids, and focus solely on prescribed exercises. This can be dangerous, especially in conditions that require immediate medical assistance and can threaten vision.
Please discuss with your ophthalmologist, to find out if you can do the exercises contained in the method, of course, while still using the recommended medical therapy.
Thus the explanation, hopefully it helps.
