Wear glasses? Read this!

I am going to put a post on the health forum but wanted to put up something here too.

I am AMAZED by these Trayner Pinhole Glasses. Bought some at a Mind Body and Spirit festival on Sunday and already they have worked wonders.

See here and Health forum

exercise your eyes!

Exmoorjane's Avatar My mother swore by these....and I still have a pair somewhere around. I found they gave me a bit of a headache and didn't persevere long enough to notice any real difference, but might have another go as you're so impressed, Faith. Not the most attractive design though!!Very Happy

Blossomcottage's Avatar I had a friend who always peered through a screwed up index finger to read the rail time table of the telephone directory I thought at first he was bonkers until I tried it. Much the same result, he had a pair of these glasses and said they were fantastic.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Faith, I am fascinated. I do have a very old book on this subject, I think it is called the Bates System, but never got around to putting the exercises into practice. Blossom, I screwed up my index finger as instructed and was amazed I could read your post without my reading glasses. I think if I were to include this great tip in my natural remedies, I would definitely be locked up. Must observe the contortion in the mirror. It must be a hoot. I have a little tip - When looking at a paint shade card, screw up your eyes, and you get a better idea of how the colour will look on the wall.

Pipany's Avatar Off for my eye test on Sat as my eyes have been aching lately. I know I should try those Bates exercises but I am not very good at any exercise Embarassed

I've worn glasses for being long sighted (Hyperopia) since my early teens. It was at this point my arms were no longer long enough to hold text far enough away from myself to read! People with failing near sight due to age will recognise this too!

Glasses cost me a fortune as I have two different prescription for my PC/book reading, to working on my drawing board, as the few centimetre difference makes all the difference between whether I can see or not.

People often think I am staring - but I am just trying desperately to see them in focus as I only wear my glasses when I need to read! I'd be interested in seeing what other people make of these glasses, they do look odd!

Boudicca23's Avatar Hmm, I might try these out when I've got a bit more money floating around. I've found that my sight close up has improved greatly over the last 2 years (for some reason, dunno what!) and I now have to take my specs off when I eat or make jewellery, even reading, but still need them for distance stuff. But I'd love to be able to do without them altogether - gets to be a real pain having to constantly take them on and off...

Westerwitch's Avatar Ooooo will also try these out - they might be able to help with my double vision . . .Rolling Eyes No its not because I have been emptying another type of glass . . . how could you think such a thing ArrowArrowArrow

Milla's Avatar fascinating, have never heard of them and now want to try them out, meanwhile am screwing up my index finger and looking slightly mad.

Embarassed eye strain? Moi? Wonder what could be causing that? Wink
