It is said that the eyes are the windows of the soul. This statement could not be truer. Since the beginning of the use of lenses for poor eyesight, man has been wondering what causes poor eyesight.
There Is Nothing New Under The Sun
There is nothing new under the sun. Man has discovered and lost knowledge over the centuries. Dr. Wm. H. Bates M.D., Ophthalmologist discovered over 90 years ago the cause and cure of eye problems. He found in his research that stress in the mind interfered with the natural focusing muscles of the eye. He discovered that vision is psycho-somatic. When the mind is tense, the eyes are tense. He discovered that emotions played an important role in the cause of vision problems.
The Eyes Are Tools Of The Mind
The eyes are tools of the mind. Just as ulcers and heart attacks are caused by prolonged stress (psycho somatic illness), so is the vision affected by stress. These stresses are always accompanied by changes
Fear At The Root Of Eye Problems
Along with the physiological reasons Dr. Bates took it a little farther. He noticed that fear created mental strain and stress and affected the eyesight. What is fear? Fear is created when we experience a change from the norm such as people moving, changing schools, a divorce, a death, career changes or a difficult relationship. These changes create stress and an element of the unknown which evokes fear. This fear is usually repressed as a survival mechanism and never dealt with again.
Whether nearsighted, farsighted, or if you experience any other visual problems, all vision problems begin with the initial cause of fear or fear of anger. If you look back to the beginning of your visual problems you will probably find circumstances that evoked fear on some level. You may have been aware of it briefly but because of lack of opportunity to express it or the fear was too much to bear you quickly repressed it as a survival mechanism and never dealt with it again. Fear occurs at all ages from young to very old.
