The human body is a perfect structure, it easily adapts to events and situations. When going down the stairs, the stair adapts to the height of the step immediately, it will cause trouble if one step is high. If you eat at the same time every day, the brain will warn you when it’s time to eat. If you go to the toilet at the same time every day, it will invite you to the toilet when the time comes. It is possible to multiply examples.
Does the brain adapt to no glasses? In monkey experiments, when -3.00 glasses were placed in front of the healthy eye, the brain adapted to the situation and became unable to see unless -3.00 glasses were worn. In instrument measurements, it shows -3.00 glasses.
*Brain erroneous astigmatism adapts, the patient is uncomfortable when the main astigmatism axis is given.
*Bates practices are based on the brain’s adaptation to no glasses.
Resisting without glasses: By keeping the brain focusing and adaptive functions alive, it resists the glasses-free vision by preventing structural disorders in the eye. Wearing glasses during this period means breaking this resistance.
Situation in new glasses wearers:
If the spectacle has just started or if the person wears spectacles, it is possible for small tricks to get used to wearing spectacles.
Adaptation to wearing glasses: The eye resists the lack of glasses and strives to see. The effort of the eye’s focusing and adaptation functions is effective here. When glasses are put on, the eye relaxes and ends the effort to see.
The eye’s resistance to the absence of glasses: A nearsighted person with a number of -1.50 on the vision chart cannot see the 6 rows clearly. If the child is -1.50 myopic and has never used glasses, he has 4-5 rows of blindness without glasses. After wearing glasses, after a month, he can’t see 6 lines without glasses. The eye has let itself go, has lost its strength to resist. The patient already says, “Before, I could see more clearly without glasses.”
What to do?It will be beneficial to keep the focusing and adaptation functions of the eye working.
Accustoming the eye to no glasses in myopia:
*Increase the hours without glasses in small numbers.
*You should use the old low numbers for big numbers.
* Provide eye support with focusing exercises.
*Pinholl eyeglasses are useful for glasses-free vision.
* As the light increases, you will see clearly. Sit close to the window during the day and close to the lamp in the evening. It can get close to the TV.
To accustom the eye to no glasses in astigmatism: In astigmatism, the child grasps the event in a very short time and discovers the method of seeing without glasses. Of course, this is not possible for every patient and eye.
Compensation for astigmatism: Vision is obtained by making the head look left and right slightly up and down on the axes of 90 and 180 or about it. Movements cannot be noticed by the people around. Compensation of 35-145 oblique axes is not possible.
