 NEW by Joy Thompson!

"Easy on the Eyes ... a fresh look at vision"
by Joy Thompson, is available from the publishers at Friesen Press as well as all other online sellers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and many other online sellers.

What makes this book unique? Here's what people are saying:

"A truly visionary book. It is profoundly inspiring, well researched and eloquently written. It provides a phenomenally innovative and healthy way of seeing, feeling, and thinking about our eyes." ... Dr. Hugo de Burgos, Professor of Medical Anthropology, UBC, Okanagan

     “Easy on the Eyes” can be described as a book of inspiring possibilities.
     Most people are unaware that there is a healthy and natural alternative to improving eyesight. Joy outlines important steps each person should be taking to guard the health of their eyes to see as clearly as possible, naturally, and at any age.
     Joy’s knowledge and passion for the subject shine through, as she describes her journey with clients who moved from blurriness to clarity, from despair to delight.
     Her stories make the book engaging and personal while providing the reader with exercises and tips to use to begin their own journey to clearer vision.
     There is simply no other book quite like it. This is a health book for the eyes and the heart!

“Carina’s book is a joy to read, clear, concise, with easy-to-find and understand sections and all the techniques to improve eyesight through natural methods.

The RCN Kit includes cds with audio lessons and activities, instruction manual, pinhole glasses, eye charts and more.

"The RCN Kit is a really fantastic package! In a short time (5 days) I can definitely feel how improvement will take place, and it’s already helping to change my habits for the better. The self-evaluation process really made me realize where my vision is at and that now is the time to take action.

I was thinking I was powerless about my eyesight, and just the knowledge that I can take control over the situation is really important to me. It’s so simple and straight-forward, yet informative and life-changing.  And you can do it anywhere, anytime." Lorelle Fisher, Qld Australia

 Eye Power:  Power your Eyes... Empower your Vision  by Barry Auchettl
Eye Power is an ebook that changes how you "see" the world with an eye exercise program that just takes 10 minutes per day. I have just edited the second edition and have found little need for any major change to what has been a very successful program.
I believe that this ebook is of value for both the information included and as a financial opportunity for the vision educators. 

I am offering vision educators an opportunity to join this world wide alliance program that gives you a 50% profit from all sales of the ebook sold through their connections.  The retail price is only $10 per ebook, and as I am using conscious business principles, would like to tithe $1 from every book sold this way to AVE.

The Bates Method Nuggets are the golden nuggets of the Bates Method of natural eyesight improvement. These are true gems, in their original form, the way Dr. William H. Bates published them in his monthly Better Eyesight magazines in the 1920s.
