Magic eyes vision training for children the new book by Leo Angart.

Virtually all children are born with eyes perfect in every way but, however, the environment in which they grow up influences the development of their eyes. Today, I saw a mother with a young baby who was bored and starting to cry. The mother immediately reached for her iPhone and gave it to her baby who was fascinated by the colours and the fact that they changed when it moved its fingers. Happy baby, happy mother and the rest of the room was relieved as well.

Watching the iPad for too long and too close damage the eyes.

Often children are given a mini iPad as a gift for their first birthday - for educational purposes, of course.

What most parents do not realise is that the growth of children's eyes is controlled not by genetics but by what the children see. Most children come into this world far-sighted (between + 2.00 and + 3.00 diopters) and their eyesight gradually normalises over the first 10 years of life. The medical term for this is emmetropisation (emmetropisation - having perfect eyesight).

Distance vision should develop first.

Nature intended eyesight to be set for distance, since this was the most important attribute during most of mankind’s evolution, and so children develop their distance vision first. Today, we have far too many things that are colourful and near and, also, children are encouraged to start their education earlier and earlier thus spending less and less time outdoors. In fact, some parents keep their children indoors (mostly using their near vision) much more than outdoors (developing distance vision).

From the above we know that the growth of children's eyes is influenced by what the child sees or the environment in which the child lives. Problems arise because of extensive near activities such as reading, playing video games and doing school work. Even watching TV locks the eye-focusing system into the distance to the TV.

Let's try an experiment to illustrate how the eye-focusing system, which is operated by all the muscles in and around the eye, works.

Make a fist and cover with the other hand, hold tight for 3 secs.

Make either the left or right hand into a fist. Then, with the other hand squeeze it really hard for a few seconds.

Remove the hand and try to move your fingers. Is this easier or is it more difficult?

It's more difficult, right?

This is how the eye muscles feel when you hold your focus at one distance for a long time. Medically this is known as sustained accommodation. The eyes are not designed to look at a book or an iPad for hours, days, weeks, months, or even years but the eye-focusing system adapts to the environment in which it finds itself.

The result is the onset of myopia or near-sightedness.

The child is then fitted with glasses in order to correct the refractive error.

They will be even cuter without the glasses.

Then what happen?

Every year the glasses need to be replaced, once or twice, because the myopia becomes progressively worse and worse. Glasses correct myopia but do nothing for the actual physical condition causing myopia in the first place.

What can be done?

Attend a Magic Eyes workshop for children (aged 8 to 12 years only). This class focuses on what works. Parent and child will learn how the two of them together can restore the child's vision to normal.

Vision training exercises for children are highly effective and can, in a few days, reverse several diopters of near-sight. Glasses become a thing of the past.

This Is what parents wrote:

"Quite an eye-opener. Amazing results within such a short span of time. Useful to motivate Janelle and convince her that it can be done. Janelle liked the alphabet exercise the best of all. I liked the information provided and the eye chart exercise. I would recommend the workshop to anyone.. Useful knowledge for the whole family." J.Chang.

More outdoor activity is better.

"Initially we were skeptical about the whole thing. Eventually we were amazed that it actually works! We found the activities very interesting, especially the "Domino."

"It was amazing to see how much Kaila's eyesight had improved. The tools used are so simple and yet make the results so visual. Kaila likes the exercises with the string."

"I like the hands-on sessions and that Leo comes around to help each child with the exercises. I recommend Magic Eyes, it really is money well spent." C. Boh.

Now you can do this as well.
