SPECIALTIES: When you have been told there is little you can
do to help your eyes, whether it be nearsightedness, or an eye disease
condition, then consider contacting me. Over the past 40 years, I have
developed the most potent natural vision improvement program called the
KaplanEyeCode®. You will find out the exact perceptual cause of your
symptoms and failing vision. Then you will use special coaching and
audio reprogramming that sets the correct inner state for your eyes to
function the way they are meant to. If you use eyeglasses, you will be
coached on the correct therapeutic lens to use for reprogramming the
healing light into the eye. This acts like a homeopathic device. Lastly,
if you arrange to have photographs taken of our of their iris, then I
can decode the valuable information from a Physical (Iridology),
Personality (Rayid) and Consciousness (KaplanEyeCode®) points of view.
All my services can be done via phone or Skype consultations, or
