How long does it take to reclaim your eyesight naturally? A person with a mild prescription and belief in the process may be back to perfect vision in a few weeks. A person with an extreme prescription may take much longer, even up to several years of gradual progress.
The Bates model says the limiting factor is almost always in the mind, not the eyes. . .people who improve their vision often report a mental shift that brings more ease and relaxation to their lives.
Considering I have relied on glasses for around two decades, I suppose I am not going to complain with “gradual progress” over a number of years (as opposed to my eyesight showing no improvement, or worse, continuing to deteriorate).
I have been told that the “mental part” is key to the success of improving one’s eyesight naturally. I find this to be 100% true.
In the past, I was using -6.00 to -7.00 degree lenses to do close-up work (reading, computer work, writing, etc.).
That I can do so now with -2.50 lenses are a big deal to me, and I look forward to seeing more improvement, even if it continues to be gradual.
In my experience, the improvement speeds up greatly when I am mentally/emotionally relaxed. It has to be a genuine state of mind “mental shift” (and not a one day “lazy” break from the usual routine).
