Vision Therapy See Without GlassesThe worst thing we can do to our eyes is
strain them. Too much mental strain and focus can actually harm our eyesight
and cause the eyes permanent damage. Bad habits start from childhood,
especially once school starts. These bad habits carry over into adulthood and
cause damage to the eyes. Most of eye problems and ailments are simply caused
by the bad habits learned in our youth.
Vision Therapy - A New Way of Learning
Children have a natural curiosity to learn
new things. Ask any kindergartener or first grader if they are excited for
school and they will almost always say yes with genuine enthusiasm. Ask the
same question of a junior high or high school student and they will moan at the
thought of going back to school for another year.
Why the huge difference between the two?
School is too disciplined and children are forced to spend hours each day
learning and memorizing things that don’t interest them. Any subject that is
uninteresting causes more concentration and the eyes to strain through. Not
every person enjoys the same subjects, yet all children are forced to memorize
and learn things in an uninteresting way.
Vision Therapy - Improving Your Vision
The eyes strain when forced to concentrate
on images that don’t interest us. Like numbers on an analytical report for work
isn’t going to interest all the employees, mathematics, science, and English
won’t interest every student. This doesn’t mean that have a well-rounded
education should be thrown out the window. It simply means there needs to be a
change in how children are educated.
The Bates Method was discovered by Dr.
William Bates, a famous eye doctor. In his method, Dr. Bates put together a
large, poster-sized card covered in common shapes and letters familiar to most
school age children. The card was hung at the front on the classroom and
offered the students something to look at when they were feeling tired or
overwhelmed. The purpose of the card was to give the children a chance to relax
their eyes. Looking at new material puts strain on the eyes, but familiar
objects allow the eyes to relax.
Teaching children not to strain their eyes
from a young age will help keep their vision sharp for years to follow. Best Regards,Achmad K Widjaya MD.MPH.MA
