The Naked Eye Podcast is a show designed to help people learn how to see clearly with the naked eye. No glasses, no contacts, no laser eye surgeries… just natural vision improvement. Together we’ll explore the holistic side of eyecare and how natural alternatives like the Bates Method, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork and more can give you healthier eyes, which leads to better eyesight and insight. Nathan Oxenfeld will be teaching you natural vision tips and vision enhancement practices, covering advances in vision training, vision science, and neuroplasticity, challenging orthodox views and belief systems, debunking vision myths, and conducting interviews with the world’s leading natural vision educators and other alternative practitioners that offer modalities that also enhance eyesight & insight. He'll also be answering listener questions and creating a forum for people who are in the process of improving their own vision holistically to share their experiences, challenges, and successes. This podcast will also be documenting The Naked Eye Book Tour 2015, which is a three-month cross-country journey to raise awareness of natural alternatives to glasses, contacts, and surgery.

In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld interviews Fernanda Leite Ribeiro, an eye doctor from São Paulo, Brazil about her various alternative approaches to eye health.

069: Wait... Perfect Sight Is Not Continuous?
In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld reads an article by Dr. William H. Bates M.D. called "The Imperfect SIght of the Normal Eye", originally published in the New York Medical Journal on September 8, 1917.
After he reads the article (starting at 7:00), which overviews the various causes and natural treatments for vision problems, Nathan discusses some of the key points.
Here are the four conclusions:
All persons with normal eyes and perfect sight do not have normal eyes and perfect sight continuously. The cause is always an effort or strain to see. Treatment by eye training is successful when distant, small, familiar letters are read a few moments at least every day. The good results obtained justify the use of the method in all schools, the army, the navy, the merchant marine, on all railroads, in short by everybody who desires or needs continuous perfect sight.

Enjoying the Episodes
I appreciated the 02/14/2023 episode where you gave the eleven steps to follow when taking off your glasses. Thank you for this podcast! I’d love to hear your perspective on Blepharospasm and involuntary eyelid closure.
Busting the Myths
Thank you for this incredible podcast! I never knew this could be possible! This podcast is great for building my belief table that it’s possible and feeding this to my suggestible sub-conscious Mind.
Lots of promotions and marketing, less of real useful content
You’ll be better of watching Nathan’s YouTube video than listening to podcasts His Podcast is a waste of time He promotes himself and others too much - many a times upto 5-7 mins , not only that, he allows his guests to promote themselves too much I know that they all need their business grow and I am willing to bear that long torture if the content was that solid but unfortunately the content is a waste of time I do watch his YouTube videos which are full of useful materials and that may propel me to give 3 star to his podcast, otherwise only one star. In one of the episodes, the interviewer was so dumb that despite Nathan explaining him multiple times what near and far sightedness is, didn’t get it. That’s the type of people you will listen in this podcast spending your precious hour or listening to Nathan about next big thing he is doing
