Dr. William H. Bates, the holistic ophthalmologist who pioneered the field of natural vision improvement, published a monthly magazine called Better Eyesight Magazine from July 1919 to June 1930.
Now, a century later, a group of natural vision educators and Bates Method teachers are creating the Better Eyesight Podcast, which is a monthly podcast that reads the entire Better Eyesight Magazine edition from exactly 100 years ago to the month, while also providing expert commentary on the material.
Instead of having to read all 11 years worth of magazine articles yourself, we're going to read them out loud for you! That way, you can close and rest your eyes or do some other vision enhancing practices while you listen and learn.
Nathan Oxenfeld and Esther Joy Van Der Werf will be your two main co-hosts, but you'll also be hearing from dozens of other natural vision educators from all over the world to get a range of explanations of Dr. Bates' powerful principles and practices.
You can support the show by becoming a Patreon supporter at https://patreon.com/bettereyesight
There are varying levels of involvement ranging from becoming a Better Eyesight Listener where you get access to the full audio recording of the magazine, to becoming a Better Eyesight League Member where you get access to monthly group discussions online with other visionaries, all the way to becoming a Better Eyesight Student where you get to work directly one-on-one with a Certified Bates Method Teacher either online or locally in your area.
This eleven year vision quest will not only teach you more about Dr. William Bates, his lasting legacy, and the incredibly transformational method he developed, but it will also provide you with professional commentary and modern-day explanations that will help take your natural vision improvement experience to the next level.
Just imagine how much better your vision could be by June 2030!
