Real hope for your eyes
(5 out of 5 stars)
"...This video shows Meir and his assistant Tony, demonstrating eye exercises that not only may help myopia, but various other eye ailments from glaucoma to macular degeneration. The techniques are not disease specific. Rather they are holistic in that the eye has to be seen as, and treated as a whole, and not in isolation as most eye doctors would. Besides exercises, the tape also highlights bad habits and wrong beliefs that lead to eyesight degeneration in one form or another, due largely to our misuse of our eyes. The exercises (indoors and outdoors) are not difficult, but require discipline and regularity. Meir is inspiring as he genuinely appears to want to convey his techniques (and the reasoning behind them), and he is also evidently his techniques' best example, having conquered his genetic disability and having endured what appears to be well intended but damaging surgery. I don't know of any other tape that actually spends a solid 74 minutes showing you how to counter the widespread belief that eyes only get worse when they start getting bad."
Worth it's Weight in Gold!

"The MEIR SCHNEIDER'S YOGA FOR YOUR EYES DVD contains all the essential exercises and materials needed to dramatically improve your vision. After doing just a few of the exercises on YOGA FOR YOUR EYES, I noticed I could focus much more easily on fine print, and my eyes felt relaxed and refreshed! Meir Schneider's instructions are clear and easy to follow, and his life experience of going from being born legally blind to being able to pass his driving exam is inspirational. The DVD format is much better than reading books or tapes for demonstrating eye yoga, because it's the closest thing to attending a yoga for the eyes workshop. Each technique is clearly demonstrated, so it can be quickly learned and easily remembered. I'd read about the Bates methods of sunning, palming, shifting, and swinging... but never before been able to so quickly master these techniques. Explanations are provided for why these and a couple of other techniques make such a big difference in vision, and why modern lifestyles often tend to unnecessarily cause our vision to deteriorate over time. Schneider explains how we can improve our visual perception as we get older by learning to exercise and relax our eyes on a regular basis. YOGA FOR YOUR EYES is worth its weight in gold; do yourself and your eyes a huge favor and watch this DVD as soon as possible!-- Cynthia Sue Larson, author of "Aura Advantage: How the Colors in Your Aura Can Help You Attain What You Desire and Attract Success""
Great information, bit slow on the teaching

"This DVD is based on the Bates' book method that says MOST simple visual blurriness due to nearsightedness or far sightedness is due to eye muscle strain/stiffness, not the cornea or optic nerve (always situations where it is).
This DVD shows exercise that Meir himself came up with based on the book who he himself was born almost totally blind by age 7 who passed the DMV eye exam w/o need for glasses.
I've only gone through some of it, but the simple thing as warming your hands & cupping each eye with each hand for 5 min w/o pressure on the cheek bones was great.
He says most people's eye muscles are stiff from too much reading, tv & computer work & not enough looking long distances like previous generations. I didn't even think my eyes were stiff until I cupped them. When I was done, OH MY GOD, my eyes felt SSOOO refreshed & I could see slightly better.
As most people, I would think sleeping is the same thing, but he says since that is passive, it does not count as giving your eyes a chance to relax.
The DVD has him teaching another man how to do the exercise which contains an eye chart & simple carboard squares to work on your peripheral vision.
The only reason I took off 1 star was because the teaching is so slow & drawn out I kept getting too bored to finish it."
Gentle and effective

"This is a clear, well-produced video/book/eyechart set. I began using it five days ago and could see only a double image of the big E. Now after the exercises I can read the first three lines. I have worn bifocals for 40 years, and I'm now wearing my glasses only to drive. I don't see every detail clearly -- Mr. Schneider doesn't either. I do see what I need to see, and my vision has improved in a very short time. This is a gentle method which can do no harm. I wish I had explored it years ago."
